Boby Chemmanur is adept at juggling multiple roles. Primarily a businessman, he is also involved in the field of sports and philanthropy. He expanded his gold business into other sectors. Though he is very active on social media, he hasn’t yet opened his house to the world. Here’s Boby Chemmanur aka Boche introducing us to his spectacular home!
His stunning hillside villa is in Palazhi in Kozhikode. But he spends six months of a year in Thrissur. And the rest of the time, he travels around. As you enter the house, you will encounter a spacious hall, containing a vertical garden. There is an open roof that can also be closed as per your convenience, and it allows you to watch Nature in all its pristine glory.
Another highlight of the house is the sky-themed ceiling in the hall. You can’t possibly miss the picture with Maradona that’s done in tiles imported from Japan. Those tiles are made from lava that erupts from a volcano and are called living tiles. This tile will absorb all the negative energy or bad smell in the room, thereby keeping your room fresh and positive all the time.
On another wall in the living room are printed pictures of his father, mother, wife, daughter, and the man himself. Family will always be dear to him. What makes the living room charming has to be the Colonial-style silver-hued furniture. They add a special elegance to the landscape.
Boche likes to call himself an untrained architect, who also knows a bit of carpentry. He loves designing and is very proud of this special interior work he did in glass—a lounge and a few glass chairs. Currently, they are setting up a gym.
Boche was always particular that the hall should be spacious, airy and well-lit. They have provided sliding glass windows here. A small space has been provided outside the living room. That’s where he likes to have his tea. He admits that he loves eating in the kitchen and it makes him feel nostalgic. Besides, it helps in having piping hot food as well.
Downstairs, there are two bedrooms. Even the ceiling of the master bedroom has been given the theme of heaven, reminiscent of colonial church ceilings.
The biggest highlight here is a rocky fountain and a cave where Boby can meditate. This is his favourite place, which took around three years to complete. An old tree is all set to arrive – a six-hundred-year-old tree which has witnessed several battles. The work of a garden is also in progress nearby, which is expected to become a party space once it is completed.
