Cradled in the lap of the Kumaon Himalayas and nearly forty acres of thick oak, cedar and rhododendron forests of the Binsar Estate, the Grand Oak Manor exudes old world charm from the colonial era. The former residence of British India’s Lieutenant General Sir Henry Ramsay, the Commissioner of Kumaon and cousin to Lord Dalhousie, the then Viceroy of India, the imperial home echoes the stately life till date in its fine dining, cosy fires, reading parlour and antiques. Despite retaining these from the past, the place is in sync with today’s necessities not only in terms of modern amenities but also in terms of the planet’s needs for clean energy which makes it a pioneer in the area in the usage of a wind turbine for electricity. The property commands a breathtaking view of the Himalayas and being in the heart of the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary, don’t be surprised if a mountain goat wanders up the hill, or if you spot a barking deer or wild boar, or even the occasional leopard. Marvel at the grandeur of the Himalayas, gaze at verdant valleys dotted with village houses, breath in fresh cedar-scented air. Stop and experience the tranquil life, all over again.
