Overview

Situated just below the British hill station of Mussoorie, the elegant house, with an adjoining cottage, is located on a 7-acre estate verdant with fruit orchards, many species of exotic and rare plants and trees. The landscaped gardens, spread across five levels, are a visual delight with their watercourses, lily pools and picturesque pathways.


The house and the adjacent cottage are designed in the style of a colonial country bungalow with sloping roofs, decorative 'monkey tops' and wide verandahs from where one can enjoy spectacular vistas of Mussoorie and the surrounding hills. Each room is individually designed, elegantly furnished with beautifully restored period furniture, and decorated with antique fittings and rare prints of flora and fauna. All rooms offer air-conditioning in summer and heating in winter.

The house has appeared in several national and international magazines, periodicals and books. All the seven bedrooms have attached baths, running hot and cold water, and are equipped with modern amenities. A formal sitting and dining room is available to the visitors. A separate private sitting room completes the setting.

Considered one of the best private gardens in India, it is laid out over several terraces and boasts of many rare trees and plants from all over the world. It has close to half-a-million plants and is lovingly tended by five gardeners. Benches and sitting areas are dotted over the gardens on each level and make for perfect relaxation. Seasonal flowers are planted in the thousands, both during the winter and the summer months. Over 60 varieties of fruits grow on the premises and visitors are welcome to pluck them off the trees
