The wedding of Mukesh Ambani’s daughter was the talk of the town a few months back. Right from B-town celebs to international stars like Beyoncé, and from politicians to the common man, everyone was either attending it or scourging the media for a minute by minute update of the most lavish wedding of the century probably.
When two business giants like Ambani and Piramal come together, there’s hardly any stone left unturned! Hence, it goes without saying, that the bride and groom would live life king size even after the wedding. The proof of this is their post-marriage abode, the Isha Ambani mansion or otherwise also known as Gulita. Though for the Ambani daughter, this is a step down from her pre-marital home Antilia, for most of us even the Isha Ambani mansion would be a dream house! Let’s look at some its features. We’re sure after going through the details, this will come very close to Antilia in your best houses list.
The bungalow is a gift from the Piramals to the newlyweds, Anand and Isha. However, even before it became a sprawling vila, the mansion had a rich past. The bungalow was purchased from Hindustan Unilever in 2012 and it used to be Hindustan Unilever’s training centre earlier.
The Architects and Designing team
Talati and Panthaky Associated which has numerous esteemed clients like the Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, the Godrej Group, INOX Leisure and Reliance Industries under their belt, is the architectural firm that helmed the Gulita project. The group has received several prestigious awards including Architectural Digest’s AD50 Luminaries Award for 2017. Phiroze Jamshed Panthaky is said to the chief architect of this project.
The overall size of the mansion is 50,000 square-foot which includes five-storeys of multiple and multipurpose rooms. The ground floor of the bungalow has a sizeable entrance lobby and the upper storeys have a living room, dining halls, triple-height multi-purpose rooms, bedrooms and circular studies. The sizes of all these rooms range from 8,700 square feet to 12,300 square feet. Apart from these, the Isha Ambani mansion also has lounge areas, dressing rooms and servants’ quarters at different levels. The bungalow even has three basements out of which one is reserved for services and another one has been allotted for parking. The top basement has a large lawn, an open-air water body and a double-height multi-purpose room.
Location, view and value
Gulita is a sea-facing property in Worli, with unhindered views of the Arabian sea and the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. Located in one of Mumbai’s most sought-after neighbourhoods — The Worli Sea Face — where the cost of properties is approximately INR53,000 per sq ft, the current value of this mansion is estimated to be 500 crores.
With guests like Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra dropping in for homemade ice-creams and girls’ sleepovers, seems Isha Ambani’s life is sorted in the Isha Ambani mansion.
Does that not sound like one of the best houses to live a comfortable and luxurious life in? It’s definitely second on my list after Antilia now! Let us know your views in the comments!
