The Plantations

150 acres farmhouse community  

The Farmhouse Company allows you to experience the comfort of your home in the lap of nature, in a gated community. A managed community means security, logistical support, an opportunity to rejuvenate old friendships, make new friends, activities for the entire family, and a wise investment. We help you design and build your own farmhouse, with a driveway meandering through a dense foliage of flowering and fruit bearing trees. The communities are spread over the forested landscape of the Western Ghats which are designated by UNESCO as a Heritage site.

 

“Older than the Himalaya mountains, the mountain chain of the Western Ghats represents geomorphic features of immense importance with unique biophysical and ecological processes. The site’s high montane forest ecosystems influence the Indian monsoon weather pattern. Moderating the tropical climate of the region, the site presents one of the best examples of the monsoon system on the planet. It also has an exceptionally high level of biological diversity and endemism and is recognized as one of the world’s eight ‘hottest hotspots’ of biological diversity. The forests of the site include some of the best representatives of non-equatorial tropical evergreen forests anywhere and are home to at least 325 globally threatened flora, fauna, bird, amphibian, reptile and fish species.”
