Stone House, Ooty

Stone House at Ooty is the first bungalow that has been built in the region. It was built by John Sullivan of Eat India Company in the year 1882 on a land acquired from the tribe Todas.



It is a simple bungalow built in the style of British cottages with sloping roofs. The surroundings are lush green with withe ferns and pine trees.



Today, it is the official residence of the Principal of the Government Arts College, Ooty.

I love the brick facade and windows, but those bright green awnings detract from the character of the building.
