Sachin shifts to his dream house

Sachins dream homeMumbai: Sachin Tendulkar moved into his dream house which is a spacious villa of over 6,000 square at Perry Cross Road in suburban Bandra.

An elated Sachin told reporters, “Everyone has a dream of owning a house. I, too, had this dream. I am happy that I was able to fulfil it. The flat where I earlier used to live, I had received it under the sports quota. I have now vacated that place, so that some other sportsman can live there,” he told reporters outside his villa.

“We had done the ‘gruha shanti’ and ‘vastu-puja’ on June 11, before I left for England. I could not visit Mumbai after that, but now that I am in the city, today I brought my mother to show the place. I have also lived here after the puja. But I have not been able to bring the children here yet,”he added.

The new home has been reconstructed on a plot that earlier housed a dilapidated bungalow, which Sachin had bought for Rs 39 crore in 2007. The villa has been secured with high-walled fencing. CCTV cameras and sensors have also been installed. According to sources close to Tendulkar, 90 per cent of the shifting process has been completed.

Tendulkar and his wife Anjali are likely to have their bedroom on the top floor of the three storey building, while the rooms of their two children – son Arjun and daughter Sara – and a guest room will occupy the two floors below. A temple, drawing and dining rooms, besides arrangements for displaying various awards and trophies won by Tendulkar, will occupy most of the ground floor.
