My family and I have visited a few @SaffronStays homes over the last 2 years now. And every visit has been this curious mix of 'This is so annoying' and 'Wow that was worth it'. This Karjat home is the middle of God only knows where with a really bumpy drive! But when you turn into the parking space and see a nearly manicured lawn leading into a modern looking grey home, the ride is forgotten and Instagram mode gets switched on. It's a spacious 3bhk villa built with some interesting quirks but what a view!! My family and I had gone in the monsoon and the sky was a grey, moody drama queen of a cloudscape. Between the blue of the pool, the muddy brown of the fast flowing river, the vibrant green of the surroundings and the subdued grey, it was like a painting of a depressed artist. My parents and siblings, we like to just sit and talk and eat and paddle in the pool. And this home was perfect for that. There is very patch network that's perfect for ducking office work till Mond...

About the Home

Set on an 8 and a half acre estate, SaffronStays One Tree Farm in Karjat is the perfect place to reconnect with your loved ones. The home is the result of the Home Owner's love for nature and it is reflected from every inch of this home. The view of the river and the one tree that stands tall on the hillock which is almost a 200 years old holds great importance to the homeowners. And this can be reflected through the design of the home as every room offers a view of both.

A 3-bedroom villa, SaffronStays One Tree Farm is nestled amidst the greens of Karjat. Surrounded by a farm and the forest, the home is a treat for nature lovers. As you enter through the doors, the vast openness of the home will make you feel one with nature. The first level houses the living room, dining area and a bedroom which are connected by a wide veranda overlooking the river. Take the stairs leading you down and you will come face to face with the pool! Jump in with your group and enjoy the cool magic with a stunning backdrop.

Explore the surroundings as the caretaker takes you on a tour of the farm. Rich with lemon trees, mango trees, vegetables like ladyfinger, tomatoes and much more, it is time to get in touch with the roots. Literally! You can even pick and choose some of the ingredients that can be used to cook your own meal!

Meander through the wilderness and enjoy the forest greens as you forest bath or walk barefoot on the supple grass lawn. Laze around in the hammock and breathe in the peace and quiet. Visit the nearby greenhouse that is bursting with colours and the sweet smell of the flowers. Avid golfers can keep up with their skills as they visit the Nine Aces Golf Greens & Academy.

If a break from the city is what you are looking for, then SaffronStays One Tree Farm is the perfect place for a getaway with your family and friends.
