Elisabetta Marabotto of Saffronart introduces one of Saffronart Prime Properties which featured on the Wall Street Journal over the summer
London: Back in August the Wall Street Journal proclaimed ‘House of the Day’ one of Saffronart Prime Properties.
The chosen property is an eco-friendly two-story country house located in Aldona, Goa. This property is the perfect getaway from the crowds and usual distractions of modern life. This home is well suited for those wishing to reconnect with themselves, the environment and the natural rhythms of life.
The uniqueness of this property stems from each facet of the home having been designed in harmony with its beautiful surroundings. This is one of the first homes in Goa shortlisted to receive a ‘Gold’ certificate from the India Green Building Council.
The property features four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms are in the main house. (The fourth is in the pool pavilion.) All four bedrooms are open on two sides, have teak wood doors and polished cement floors. The three bedrooms in the main house also have basalt walls. The master bedroom, has an elevated view of the surroundings. The built-up area of approximately 4500 square feet is constructed on approximately 1226 square yards of land.
Everything started when the owner, Anjali Mangalgiri, and her husband bought a piece of land in Aldona in 2010. They began construction in 2011 and spent about two years building this two-story house. Ms. Mangalgiri works in real-estate design and construction. She and her husband live in New York City but both grew up in India. They fell in love with the bio-diversity of Goa after visiting friends in the state and started to look for land to build a house.
