The complete picture
The house looks just a regular building from outside which looks close to a cob house from its outer appearance as it is built of local materials only, but this authentic and pristine looking house is a different animal from inside. Giving it a sense of an esoteric aesthetic touch is the uniqueness of its indoor decoration. Each room is strewn with different colours, complemented by cane chairs, and wooden tables. With windows wide-opened in your room, and the pure air engulfing your whole entity- the morning and evening tea, it never tasted better. Divine!
