It is peerless in its structural stature and colossal grandeur.It stands the test of time and has every characteristic it portrayed 150 years back. The old cellar for rice called "Ara" and the housing rooms have the same old charm and purity. Even the porcelain flick switch will take you back to a period long lost. The charm of it is enhanced by paddy fields at the back and water bodies on the other three sides. It is tranquil all around, broken only by chirping birds or the hushed knock of an oar in a canoe.It's completely away from the hustle and hassle of the town/city in a heritage home right on the river amid the ricefields.
