Baag-e-Fursat; a farmhouse with contemporary architecture with a hint of vintage style | Aann Space

Aesthetics, Opulence and Modern Amenities Coexist With Nature’s Charm In This Punjab Farmhouse | Aann Space

The pandemic has spurred the requirement for farmhouses even more as people now desire safe havens of their own to live in a serene atmosphere with their close family and friends. For this, it is needed that the farmhouse should be away from the chaos of the city homes and create a direct connection with nature. Such a beautiful and luxurious farmhouse is- Baag-e-Fursat- envisioned and designed by Architect Harpreet Singh, Principal Architect, Aann Space in Kharar, Punjab. Sprawling over an area of 8,000 sq. ft, this farmhouse has enchanting views all around and offers glimpses of a privileged lifestyle. The project speaks of retreat in the purest sense with lush-green lawns, pleasant-and-poised patio seats, intriguing indoor game areas and a striking swimming pool that elevates the experience in and around the accommodation." The most exciting part of this project was to visualise and build the windmill along with the infinity pool that adds the much-required character to the resort,” says the Architect. SURFACES REPORTER (SR) obtains more information about this delightful project from the architect. Don't miss to take a virtual tour to the home to enjoy its amazing beauty:

Deep within the rich landscape of Punjab, an extravagant farmhouse rises from the still ground with a paradisiacal experience as “Baag-e-Fursat”. Much like the name, it is imagined as a garden estate that grows into staying areas and recreation points that enjoy the vistas all around the 8000 sq. ft. expanse of the place. 

Impressive Entrance

The first impression of a visitor begins where their ride ends—a massive parking lot seals the end-to-end experience of the farmhouse with towering walls and a tucked-away entrance that gives a small peek into the entirety of Baag-e-Fursat. Upon entering, one is surprised by the monumental impose of the setup that is acrophobic in one minute and completely breathtaking in the next.

As a tradition, the visitors are welcomed by a sign of wellness and fortune—A tree-high statue of Lord Buddha sits in the midst of pruned bushes that carry the nature-loving language ahead.

The scenic lawn ambience is left untouched by walkways—stamp concrete paths, trellised seating islands, metallic garden sculptures and birdhouses run in silence, along the side.

Recreational Areas

The first of four cottages is dedicated to recreation—the lounge and dining overlooking the infinity pool and its cascading sides give a tranquilising accent to the space.

A sunken bar by the pool takes a deeper indulgence into the turquoise waters that gleam by the day and turn dramatic by the moon-lit night.

An Orchestra of Natural Light and Shadows

Further ahead, the villa cottages spell the concept of wonders in the wild, by introducing garden nodes within an off-grid layout that luxuriates in ample sunlight and ventilation.

Contemporary and Chic Interiors

Both upper and lower storeys grandstand a contemporary interior style with minimal furniture, geometric lights, lightwood hints and an overarching neutral palette.

These rooms stay synonymous with the farmhouse concept by accommodating beds that wake up to the views lit by the east sun, along with the verandas that share the same.

Indoor Gaming Area Spruced Up By Card Symbols

More drama awaits on the inside—an indoor gaming area in the basement gives a walk through the timeless games with pool tables, carrom tables and table-tennis zones, etc., all wrapped around by walls carrying their symbols—chequered walls, pawn patterns, card collages and more make the space interesting for people of all ages.

Contemporary Architecture Fused With Vintage Decor 

On the whole, Baag-e-Fursat is a place to satiate one’s senses with the lavish play of contemporary architecture along with a subtle throwback to vintage styles.

While the contemporary side of the design opens up opportunities for people to interact with expandable rooms, semi-enclosed gazebos, makeshift party lawns, etc.—the vintage hints bring back the nostalgia with a signature windmill, antiquated fans, trussed roofs, and handmade luminaires, woven matters and more.

As an experience, Baag-e-Fursat is a peaceful haven for families with people from different times and cities, brought together by nothing but an enthuse for a time away from humdrum life.
