50 Alibaug houses
Architectural schematic for a developer
Water is the soul of this serene hillside, as it sits on the edge of the Kashid coastline, a half hours’ boat ride out of Mumbai. Backed by forests and fronted by a sensational view of the Arabian Ocean, this land could only be developed as Frank Lloyd Wright says – “ No house should ever be on a hill or on anything. It should be of the hill. Belonging to it. Hill and house should live together each the happier for the other”.
When all else has revealed itself majestically – the sea, sun & sky, the sounds still remain mysterious. The last secret – the brook, hurtling down the hillside, has now transformed itself into a spine –spilling into the low lying pockets of land, into a lazy lagoon, lined with trees, cyclists, pools, restaurants and a community of 50 individual independent homes, - 3 BHK and – 4 BHK. The homes provide a range of experiences. – the home on the edge of the forest, the home on the lagoon, and the home on the sea, all eventually addressing the magnificent coastline.
Buggy paths and cycling tracks wind along the grassy greens or the languid lagoon, leaving the homes to enjoy complete privacy and independent views. A Restaurant on the water, a spa in the jungle, tennis courts, a gym and private outdoor dining pavilions complete the story of style and comfort.
