Inside Yuvraj Singh’s Holiday Home In Goa
Holiday homes provide a break from hectic work schedules, allowing you to relax and rejuvenate before returning to your regular routine. A charming house on an elevated site with views of a tranquil, lush green environment creates an idyllic scene. Yuvraj Singh’s pleasant haven on a hill in Morjim, Goa. The site, which is located near the intersection of the Arabic Sea and the Chapora River, offers spectacular views and complete privacy to the former Indian cricket captain and his family.
The house also has views of Goan villages surrounded by greenery, as well as views of the water in the distance. It is intended to take in the panoramic views and openly embrace the outside world. The interior spills out into the open space, which is framed by railings and potted plants on the lower level. Around the corner of the house is a swimming pool with a swim-up bar, making the outdoor breezy setting ideal for lounging and hosting evenings.
Canalization of Goan Charm
The facade is covered in a blue and white combination that immediately evokes the colour aesthetics associated with Santorini houses, from which this palette was inspired. “Inspired by Santorini, the holiday home style was intertwined with traditional Goan housings,” says Suraj Morajkar, founder of Sun Estates Developers, the company in charge of project execution. “Considering the moonsoons in the southwest of the house and its geographic location, we had to ensure that no damage was caused by weather and that the weather aspect was critical to the stability and architecture of the house. Yuvraj requested open spaces with green spots to relax in, and we made sure his privacy needs were met as well.” Arvind D’souza designed the interiors while Nitin Katwani designed the architecture.
Aesthetics That Are Subtle
The interior has a sublime simplicity, a restrained aesthetic, and spaces that are minimally equipped. A neutral base palette sweeps across the interior, highlighting the recessed areas with yellow and blue infusions. The dining area is located in the corner of the living room. These rooms are decorated in light colours and with tasteful lighting. Floral and solid-colored soft decoration provides an appealing counterbalance to the flat, neutral surfaces. The integrated sitting area in the sitting area with a view of the pool occupies the entire length of the window and provides additional seating. The kitchen is hidden behind double doors and placed across the living area, and the compact space has a lighter finish with an outer glass door that lets in natural light.
The spacious bedrooms, which have an uncluttered appeal, largely follow the design plan visible throughout the rest of the house. Extensive openings allow natural light to enter while also creating a brisk atmosphere. Soft décor, artworks, and certain highlighted backdrops add pops of colour and patterns. While the upper floor dormitories flow into large balconies and built-in seats next to the windows, the ground-floor bedroom has a cosy alcove encased in a soothing sky-blue colour. It provides a comfortable, elevated platform that creates a lovely nook for reading or simply relaxing.
Every corner of this cottage exudes peace, and with such breathtaking views, the house ticks all the boxes for an ideal vacation home at any time of day. We’re sure Yuvraj Singh and his family have a favourite place to unwind!
