A short 10 minute drive from Mandva Jetty takes you to the rustic seaside village of Sasawane where this charming villa sits on over an acre of land. A tad beyond 200 meters from the beach this beautiful home comes fully loaded with furniture, white goods and with all sanctioned government approvals (a rarity within 500 meters of the coastline). The furniture comprises either restored antiques or hand crafted & custom made pieces. This home is newly constructed and the interiors have been thoughtfully curated and designed by Mumbai based Sam Manekshaw. His guiding design principle was that the home must have a local look and feel, "An Indian home should reflect India". There are some exquisite lights, restored doors and windows which have been incorporated into the build. These add a sense of nostalgia to what is a wonderful eclectic blend of local styles. To say space is a luxury is an understatement for this home which hosts 3 extravagantly sized bedrooms and bathrooms along with lofty ceilings giving its occupants a real sense of openness. The design sense allows natural light to stream into all rooms. The laterite exterior causes the structure to blend into its verdant surroundings and the bespoke tile and wood flooring adds another level of uniqueness to the home. The colourful tiles are also representative of vibrance of the Indian countryside.
The home consists of 3 levels. The ground level comprises interior spaces of the living, dining, kitchen, powder bathroom and guest bedroom. The ground floor exterior includes the lawns, the vegetable garden, swimming pool and deck areas. The property also has an independent structure which houses staff quarters and bathrooms. The first level consists of a large family den, the master bedroom and the third bedroom. Level 3 is an uncovered terrace with a terrazzo floor. All the woodwork in the home including the cabinets, staircase, wall panels, doors & partitions are built in solid Burma teak. Power backup is provided via a generator and water via 2 open wells and 1 bore well on site. In place are also solar water heaters, drip irrigation for the landscaping and LED lights. A rainwater harvesting system has also been installed and there are many fruit trees on the property which include mango, papaya, guava, cheeko, tamarind & lemon making this a green house in more ways that one.
Lastly this property has a sanctioned approval for a building a total of 799 SM. The balance area that can be built is approximately 284 SM.
