In a quiet bylane off old khandala road, this bungalow plot is full of greenery and rustic charm. With a stream passing through the plot, the entire plot is serene, scenic and exudes a tropical forest feel.
The plot is 1250 sq metres or 1500 sq yards or 12.5 gunthas in size. It has many 30 - 40 year old trees and a variety of flora and fauna. The stream which passes through is the excess clean water from the tata power dam nearby and provides continuous and uninterrupted water for the lawns and trees. Apart from that, it can be 'dammed' to create a natural pond in the plot itself! The constant sound of flowing water along with the birdsong is soothing and refreshing.
In the middle of the plot there is an old, quaint and rustic 2 bedroom bungalow with a hall, kitchen and separate dining areas. The walls are made of 18 inch stone and prevent humidity from entering the house even during the monsoons. There are large front and back porches or sit-Outs to enjoy the beauty of the gardens.
As the house is old, it may require remodeling and renovation. It can also easily be completely razed to the ground to make a 3 - 4 - 5 bedroom new villa on its place.
There is a front and back garden and also a lot of area in front of and behind the stream to create manicured lawns and professional landscaping.
There is a separate gardener's cottage on the property.
The lane is very well maintained with cement roads, road side landscaping, night lights and front and back gate for security. It is a cluster (Not society) of 20 odd bungalows which together maintain this area.
It is 2 minutes away from the first railway crossing into khandala and so entry and exit are very quick, without having to enter lonavala at all.
With a little bit of effort in renovations and landscaping, this can be one of the most premium properties in all of khandala - Lonavala area.
