This was a house we designed a few years ago in a village near Mayavaram. The house has many Chettinad architecture elements and mainly uses the columns recycled from old houses, which the client had already collected. The main house has two bed rooms with a large courtyard. It has a separate block that houses the kitchen and two dining rooms. There are two separate cottages that have two suites with a verandah and courtyard. The whole place overlooks the paddy files in the Kavery Delta area. Now, this house is being converted into a boutique resort where the servants’ quarters are converted into a spa.
