Looking for a second home Your search ends here.

08 October, 2020

Looking for a second home: Your search ends here.

As the effects of COVID-19 were felt around the world, people holed up inside their cocoons with office and home merging into one. While this was fine for the first few days, soon the walls began to close in. This pushed apartment dwelling people to seek more space and nature outside of the city.

People have always preferred to buy a second home either for vacation or for rental returns. Some even buy a second home, to bequeath it to their heirs. However, the pandemic has led to more people planning on a second home purchase, for reasons other than the common ones.

Interestingly, nearly three-fourths of ultra-high-net-worth individuals (UHNIs) in India are planning to buy a second home, with nearly every one of them budgeting upto Rs 50 crore for the upgrade, said India Sothebys International Realty in its latest study.

Whether you want a second home for a whiff of fresh air or for remote working amidst nature, there couldn’t be better choices than Kasauli, Goa or Lonavla.

PRIVÉ, Lonavla

Located amidst the glorious greenery of the Lonavala hills, Privé is a coveted address offering seventy-three contemporary-styled hillside residences. Each home here combines interiors with fluid open spaces that translate to a very real feeling of freedom. Built on a slope, Privé takes advantage of its amphitheatric position to enhance its relationship with nature and beautifully frames the wide views of North Point and the Khandala Valley.

These airy, light-washed residences seem barely tethered to the ground, a blissful image for those seeking a private haven away from the bustle of the city. Privé is easily accessible from Mumbai and Pune as it is just off the old Lonavala Highway and few minutes away from the Expressway.
