WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT PARUL -

1. HERITAGE - The house has a rich history that crosses continents and finds mention in global and local media for the family that grew up here and made their way to the top echelons in academia.

2. ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN - You will have the bragging rights to say that you stayed in a house whose veranda and wall design pattern match with those at the Uttarayan Complex built by Tagore. The villa is located in Gurupally, the original area where all the faculty of the university stayed since the early 1900s. Each space in Parul is created to give you a cozy and elegant atmosphere that is an integral part of the ethos of Rabindranath Tagore.

3. SMALL THINGS MATTER - We didn't stop at giving you ample plug points in each bedroom but made sure each socket fits with international plugs. We put bathroom fittings that you see in 5-star hotels and also made sure that you get ample water pressure in the shower and taps. We refurbished each piece of furniture to its original finish and each painting was carefully chosen to complement the room decor. Each piece of furniture, lights, each accessory has been refurbished or handpicked to keep the spirit of Shantiniketan alive. We also supported local artisans to create handmade tiles that you can see in various house parts.

4. OPENNESS - The openness of the entire villa is unique to Shantiniketan's way of living. Large verandas, terrace, gardens would help you go back to your childhood days. The rooms are intentionally devoid of too many distractions to ensure free-flowing conversations for hours. The living room can accommodate 9-10 guests for adda. The attached balcony overlooks the 4000sq ft garden where you can choose to continue your conversation while watching over your kids chasing butterflies and squirrels around the lawn.

5. LOCATION - The house is located in the sanctum sanctorum of Shantiniketan (called the "ashram" area) in Gurupally. The neighborhood consists of every place created by Tagore (Tagore's museum - Uttarayan, Kachhghor, Chhatim tola, Patha Bhavan, Ghanta Ghor, Natya Ghor) is within walking distance. ATM, vegetable stores, and the resident local handicraft market are also a short walk away. To visit Deer Park, Amartya Sen's house, or attend the weekend Mela (fair), you would need a 5-10min Toto ride.
