The Woodside is a newly-built set of homes, based on 12 acres of land in Kasauli, India. A picturesque environment, the development consists of 37 villas in total in the mountain terrain, where weather reaches the extremities during winter and summer. The town is mostly an agriculture area, meaning that greenery is in abundance in the surrounding areas, with the homes designed to fit perfectly within that space.

Each home is designed to be different from each other but there is still some uniformity built into the exterior design. Living spaces are generously sized, with floor-to-ceiling windows leading out onto lawns and terraces. There’s also an eco-friendly element to the homes, with the water supply designed to minimise water wastage and utilise rainwater. Take a look through the gallery above to see the homes for yourself.
