Situated in the centrally located Saath Rasta, is a sprawling, 3,615 square feet bungalow, as singular in concept as it is in location. A far cry from the ever-rising crowd of metal and glass structures, this solid brick two-storey house combines the Indian tradition of spacious interiors with all the modern functionalities of contemporary aesthetics.

Step off the dusty asphalt road onto a cobbled walkway, flanked by hedges of local flora. No cars can enter this gated community comprising six bungalows; there is ample parking space immediately outside. Here, peace and privacy are as much a function of design as demand. 

The bungalow itself admeasures a little over 2,600 square feet. It features a beautifully sun-lit living area, dining and study areas, and a hearty kitchen on the lower level. All the principal rooms look into the soul of this house—its aangan—a 100 square feet open-air courtyard that welcomes seasons

Saath Rasta lies at the cusp of South Mumbai and the suburbs, and was once famous for its mills. Long-abandoned, these mills have been reclaimed by developers and have transformed into South Mumbai’s most sought-after property. The area serves as a very convenient central point to escape to town, or to head north to Bandra and beyond. 

The property is located very close to the Byculla railway station, and faces Planet Godrej. Taking the road leading to Jacob Circle, Mahalaxmi station is five minutes away, while Phoenix Mills is only fifteen minutes away. The Mahalaxmi Racecourse is ten minutes away. The King Edward Memorial Hospital is around twenty minutes away, in Parel. On days without traffic, it would take between twenty to thirty minutes to reach Colaba, if one takes the J. J. flyover. The international airport is an hour away if one takes the Bandra-Worli sea-link.
