AVM Garden Villa is a vintage property that aims to be a tailored fit for all kinds of events. Built by movie mogul and founder of AVM Studios, A.V. Meiyappan in 1965, this near two-acre property is on Arcot Road, Vadapalani. Once featured in movies such as Padiyappa and Annamalai, the property has been repurposed as a venue to host events of all kinds. In fact, this glitzy manor in the middle of the city has played host to some of the biggest names in Tamil cinema like MGR and Rajnikanth.
The main building is surrounded by large lawns with walkways and gazebos, and a lineup of flora that makes it feel quite royal. Moving inside, the marble floors, high ceilings, and vintage furniture add to that sentiment. AVM Garden Villa also has a functional kitchen, dining hall and two bedrooms that can be refitted based on your specific needs.
Outside of that, there are large halls on two floors that would be great for art exhibitions and offer a lot of natural light coming through the large glass windows. The building is centrally air-conditioned and can handle large numbers of people, making it perfect for hosting weddings, sangeeths, photoshoots and parties. Their team can fully customise the venue based on your requirements and the results show in their photographs,
As far as spaces to rent go, AVM Garden Villa is certainly a cut above the rest, sheerly in terms of aesthetic. Its colonial-style makes it feel grand, and we think it’s a great space, especially for outdoor events.
