About the neighborhood
Called Rosery, the name is as evocative as it is redolent-of a sprawling 60 acre rose-garden, belonging to the erstwhile Maharaja of Pithapuram, now a sprawling tea-garden.
Though the Palace itself maintains its regal facade, notwithstanding the many sea-changes inside, the grounds and the out-houses offer a more interesting scenario.
One such, Atwood, has been transformed into suites, furnished with antique rosewood and teak furniture and, having a brilliant view and flaming sun sets.

A lot of animals and birds live on this estate - enjoy them and learn to respect their space. If you love nature and quiet, this is a great place. Be accommodative of your neighbours and keep the noise level civil. there are walk and trekking routes
