The Longhouse extends over three floors, each connected by a lift to the ground floor parking area. On the upper floor are the living and dining rooms, kitchen, master bedroom and swimming pool. Below are three guest bedrooms and the home cinema, plus, at a slightly lower level, two twin bedrooms separated by a sitting area that opens to the garden. Lower still, the villa’s mezzanine level is home to a spa room, gym, kids’ play area and the staff quarters.
Carved into the wall of pale local stone that forms the villa’s backbone, little alcoves display statues and paintings evoking the epic story of the Ramayana, and passageways dotted with intimate seating areas and open stairways link spaces together.
