The Elgin Silver Oaks, Kalimpong, was the home of a famous Jute magnate. The property has now been converted into a luxury boutique heritage resort in the Himalayas, the ground floor of the house was built in the 1930’s by a British jute magnate, who later sold the house to Frederick Deshraj, an architect and builder, who also built the Teesta bridge.
The house was then bought by Mr. Diamond Oberoi in the early 1980’s from Frederick Deshraj. Mr. Oberoi added an extra floor as a natural extension of this style of architecture with added windows, allowing a better assortment of lights to fill into the indoors and hallways. The Elgin Silver Oaks provides the best in luxury and comfort by integrating modern amenities tastefully with its heritage decor, the property is also decked with lithographs of old masters, period furniture, bookshelves with handpicked publications and a bar to ease the spirits and help relax.
