Old Harbour House
This charming mansion was the office of Pierce Leslie & Co, coffee merchants, founded in 1862. A representative of the Fort Cochin Colonial Bungalow, this building reflects Portuguese, Dutch and local influences.
Formerly a boat house, it was built in 1808 for Carrit Moran & Co, renowned tea brokers who now use it as their residence.The Dutch architecture blended finely with the Portuguese tradition to create such a simple, but elegant building.
This magnificent building constructed by Samuel S Koder of the Cochin Electric Company in 1808 is a supreme example of transition from colonial to Indo-European Architecture.
