N. Santhanam has a pretty stressful job as CEO of Mumbai's Breach Candy Hospital. So stressful in fact, that he wasn't quite willing to spend his cherished weekends in maximum city and was exploring pristine properties in areas not too far from Mumbai, where he could unwind and spend quality time with his family. That's when he came across a villa at Kalpataru Amoda Reserve in Lonavala, which he eventually bought. He says, “I was clear I didn’t want to travel 5-6 hours and was keen only on a gated community as it takes care of maintenance, housekeeping and security. One set of keys always remains with the caretaker and before we go there, the agency responsible for property and facility management cleans it up and keeps it absolutely ready for us.
