Colonial bungalows, with their sprawling facades, wide verandas, high roofs and antique furniture are an integral part of the colonial history of India. Today, many such bungalows are remodeled as modern resorts, high rise buildings and malls… in the process a quintessential part of our architectural heritage is sometimes lost.
Fredy’s Bungalow has been opened to travelers with absolutely no structural changes and minimal changes to its interiors. As with all colonial mountain structures, it is built in stone with sloping roofs. There is a large number of doors and windows with English-style glass panes and of course the customary verandah. The original walls, wood-burning Franklin stove for heating, two-storey wooden ceilings, floorings and staircase have been retained.
