Priyanka Gandhi Vadra today reviewed work at her under-construction cottage at Chharabra located on the outskirts of Shimla. Priyanka after flying into Chandigarh reached the Wildflower Hall hotel here by road.
After a brief stop at the hotel, she went to the construction site, sources said. In her second visit this month, she minutely inspected the interiors, the facade and the landscaping of the house, they said. The cottage has a typical hill-house architecture with slopping roofs and fine wood work. Priyanka has made a number of alterations in the designs and building plans over the years, they added. Located amid thick Deodar forests, the cottage is just 500 meters from The Retreat. She has been constantly visiting it for the past eight years. Sources said that 4.25 bigha of land was purchased by her in 2007 and the house was nearly complete in 2011, when she got it demolished and changed the building plan entirely.
