In a city so bereft of heritage buildings, it is heart gladdening to see a gracious old house blossoming anew and smack in the heart of town as well. In a masterstroke of making best use of existing resources, Nisha and Evan Chadwick have opened Ecovilla, the newest and most charming place to rest a weary head. Lit by a blazing sunset, guests mingled on the deck, the generous catering causing this reporter to fear for his waistline! Party goers marvelled at the location, a prayer’s breath from the Transitional Cathedral and the heart of the reborn city, which beats stronger with every passing day.
