A home is so much more than a roof over your head, it’s a space where you raise a family in security with the best facilities money can buy for your family. It’s not just a place that is good for you alone. It’s a space that is good for your family, where the market is within reach and schools/colleges not too far away, while medical care facilities are just about a stone’s throw away from where you are at. Most importantly, places of worship are also nearby… for that spiritual recharge, we all need to keep us going through the day and the week. This very much defines a home, a home sweet home, where your family is well provided and cared for. In Mumbai, if we were to identify such a space, it would be Kandivali. Wikipedia itself describes Kandivali as an upmarket residential locality, while housing.com lauds Kandivali East for its gated communities and luxury apartments that offer excellent connectivity and a well-provided social infrastructure, which is why residencies in Kandivali East i.e Thakur Village and Lokhandwala are booming and blooming, attracting many young couples to come to build their lives and start a family here.
