The impressive entry has a curved stairway – peculiar to old Goan homes – leading to an expansive outdoor balcão with comfortable seating and a swing that invites residents to while away their mornings with a cup of coffee and the news. Just beyond, lies a large foyer with natural clay printed flooring, an antique console table with a mirror and an antique hat and coat stand.
Turning right brings the gorgeous living room and dining space into view, featuring large windows and high sloping roofs. The living room boasts beautiful antique seating with subtle upholstery and an interesting rotating bookshelf. The eight-seater dining table easily prompts routine family-style meals with its inviting allure. This space also offers a compact powder room absorbed from the kitchen, just adjacent.
Here, the inspiration was traditional Spanish-Portuguese kitchens inconspicuously fitted with modern features for easy functionality. The designers included overhead storage finished in IPS with distressed white shutters on the lower cabinets for a truly rustic feel. A door leads to a veranda at the back with options for either a cosy little kitchen garden or even a private breakfast space.
The foyer also leads to two rooms through high arches. These have been converted into family rooms – one a lounge space that’s perfect to laze about during the hot Goan afternoons and the other a library using an antique cupboard converted into a space for books. The lounge also boasts a stunning old rattan diwan that’s truly a masterpiece of the past.
Each bedroom – featuring private vanities – has been consciously painted in subtle colours to create warmth, with the addition of antique beds to maintain the traditional look and feel. All offer lots of natural light and are open to the outdoors so every room resident always has a space to step out into to enjoy the starry night sky.
A gorgeous blue tone has been chosen for the master bedroom, with a large bathroom sporting a shower and a tub, double vanity and a walk-in wardrobe. The room also has a study and a console with corner seating.
Guests are comfortably entertained in the social space overlooking the oblong pool. The short walk from the house ensures privacy for residents while opening out the outdoor spaces for entertainment.
