A site nestled in the heart of the metropolis yet tucked away from it’s maddening cacophony, VYOM is an estate handcrafted to ensure that the residents cherish the blessings Mother Nature offers to the fullest. A whopping 2.5 acres of landscape, including a natural pond that is more than a tenth of the plot’s area, VYOM is a bio diverse haven that enhances the quality of life.

The natural pond

The resultant self-sustainable pond ecosystem is more than just a treat to the eyes. It adds a rejuvenating sense of calmness and positive energy throughout.

The vegetation along the pond banks is dense and tropical in nature, with broad leaves which not only yield’s aesthetic appeal but also, soaks up the pollution to a great extent.

The mounds and gardens

VYOM is a kaleidoscope of colors, patterns, shapes and forms. The mounds and gardens of VYOM are adorned with over 500 trees and shrubs.

VYOM’s rich biodiversity is a natural buffer against the malaises of city life. The thick vegetation acts as noise barrier and screens the unwanted clamor of the streets. The swishing of leaves, the rattling of branches, the crunching of gravels and the fluttering of butterfly wings make the estate a euphonious paradise; the water, wind and biodiversity make VYOM a melodious retreat. The diverse flora and fauna of such impressive waterscape stimulate intellectual curiosity, an incredible intrigue about the variety of fishes, plants with sundry textures and aromas.

With about 30 species of butterflies, dragonflies, birds, squirrels, amphibians, etc. VYOM is all set to usher a ‘classroom beyond classrooms’ living experience.
