Hesed is our family labor of love located at the edge of a gentle cliff in Cherrapunjee, overlooking meadows and streams down below. I am an academic teaching abroad, and my wife has family ties in Meghalaya. We reside here with our little ones for a short while each year, mostly spending our time trekking down, baking, reading and sharing stories by the fireplace. If you are looking for a space to take a pause among our hills, to breathe and to contemplate, Hesed House is for you.

The space
The 4 - bedroom house is built on two large step-like rocks on the edge of a cliff, and predominantly walled with local stones. We have kept a big part of the upper rock exposed inside the house, jutting out over the lower level lounge. Floors and ceilings are wood. The upper level has one bedroom to the side as soon as one enters the main doorway, followed by a big sitting area with a fireplace. Also adjoining this area is the small study and library, right next to the first bedroom. The sitting area flows into a loggia with glass windows on all sides, which also serves as our cafe/breakfast place. One one side we have a small kitchen with a wood-fired brick oven as well as modern stove tops. From the other side an iron and wooden staircase leads down to a mid-level bedroom, followed by couple of more steps to the downstairs lounge. Two more bedrooms open into this area. Finally the downstairs lounge opens to a big deck built with a local logs that can withstand the heavy rains of Cherrapunjee.
