He always wanted a south facing home where he would have access to maximum sunshine throughout the day. However, south facing homes in and around a metro city like Kolkata are too expensive.Finally, he came across a 3 BHK south-facing and pond facing apartment near Garia which also came with lush landscape, more than 60% open spaces, plethora of wellness amenities and an in-house Shopping centre. Though he very much liked the position of the apartment, but was not very sure whether he could afford that until he knew the price. To his surprise, the price started from only 37 lacs, including GST and extra charges. South facing homes not only have significant health benefits but they are also very auspicious according to Vaastu.
