  • It is located in the poshest neighborhood of Kodaikanal, less than 2 kilometer from the center of the town yet totally secluded, and just around the corner from the government guesthouse, which means well-maintained roads and best utility services.
  • Near to a Jain temple and two major Hindu temples and yet secluded from the traffic.
  • The house has two sumps for a total of 1.2 lakhs of rainwater harvesting plus a covered well for irrigation. A pressure pump gets water to every part of the house evenly. Also top-end filter systems are in place to produce the best quality drinking water.
  • The property boasts an outside temple with stone statues of Lord Ganesha, Siva Lingam, Visnu, Murugan, Durga, and Hanuman.
  • There are two ponds and water fountain on the property. One pond houses Japanese koi fish and the other is used for the enjoyment of geese and ducks.
  • The entire house (except the kitchen and bathrooms) are wood floored. All the doors, windows, and floors are made of seasoned teak wood with solid brass fixtures.
  • The main kitchen, bathrooms, courtyard, and outside walls are decorated with hand-crafted moorish-style tiles.
  • The land is pucca residential-zoned and all the papers of the property are in perfect order.
  • A two-sided fireplace and two wrought-iron wooden stoves to keep the house warm in winter.
  • Copper plumbing throughout the house with Jaquar plumbing and Legrand electrical fixtures.
  • Eight feet tall boundary walls protecting the property.

I am the owner of this property in beautiful Kodaikanal , Tamil Nadu, India. This is a home made with love and positive energy. The design is unique , combining South Spain and Colonial Mexico . There can be no replicas of this beautiful property. I am in North Carolina in the USA at the moment. I will be returning to India soon to show the property to those interested. Thank you.
