A day time for you to live in beautiful bungalows with amazing views of the estates, manicured lawns and well kept gardens and a barrage of staff to look after the bungalows and its masters.

 

The Bungalow, built in 1924 originally by the British planters and later modified by later owners, is a lovely bungalow located on a hillock with excellent views of the mountain behind and the valley below.
