In the charming quietude of this home, you may laze away your evening under the leafy canopy of a guava tree, which stands sentinel in the amoeba shaped pool. You hear the rustle of the leaves as the cool evening breeze plays with them-Muse enough for a poet…Float, if you choose, on a bamboo raft in the encircling placid waters of the pool from where you can watch the residual brilliance illuminating the evening sky after sunset. It creates a relaxed ambience that helps you to unwind.

The garden stretches into the beckoning River Pampa. The backyard is a light- filled sitting area with an abundance of green, and presents the appearance of a covered courtyard.. The mango tree offers a magnificent bower over a fish pool beyond where you could relax with a fishing rod.
