Currently under development, Navovado retains the charm of a traditional Goan-Portuguese courtyard home and updates the same with a contemporary building form, and indoor-outdoor spaces fit for the luxury of modern country living.
An eco-friendly home built among large full-grown mango trees, Navovado is surrounded by paddy fields and backwaters in the beautiful North Goan village of Olaulim.
Life at Navovado will be centered around the large central courtyard designed to be an extension of the kitchen, living and dining rooms. The walls dividing the living spaces, verandah and courtyard are designed as sliding glass doors that open to create a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces.
The central courtyard also houses a private swimming pool and a pool pavilion that encloses the courtyard with an added sense of privacy. Cool breeze from the swimming pool will float indoors and we envision leisure filled days spent here, cooking, eating and making lasting memories with family and friends.
The central courtyard extends further over the entire length of the 1000 sq.m. property, with a large lawn area in the north and a mango tree dominated courtyard in the south. The north and south courtyards offer silent shaded spaces for conversation filled evenings, long elaborate meals, and meditative hours spent in solitude admiring nature.
Navovado has 5 en-suite bedrooms, three on the ground floor and two on the first floor level. Two ground floor bedrooms have picture windows facing the central courtyard and have their own dedicated private verandahs. The third ground floor bedroom is adjacent to the living room and is divided with a system of sliding-folding doors that allow for flexible use of this room (as guest bedroom, study, library, or family room).
The master bedroom on the first floor enjoys complete privacy with an extra large luxurious bathroom. A large terrace with partial views of nearby paddy fields and hills flanks the master bedroom and the fifth bedroom.
The overall scale of the house has been designed to fit into the existing village landscape.
