Chestnut Room

Chestnut room is named after the Chestnut tree that grows in its veranda. We have only 1 Chestnut room. In the above picture, it is the room on the bottom floor. This is a large room, with wooden-floor, mud walls on 2 sides and windows / glass doors on 2 sides. It has an open veranda in front. When the glass doors are completely open the room merges with the forest around. There is a rock that has been left uncut in the room which will be a joy for children.
