Kohli bought a villa in Alibaug in Avas Living in March 2023. Avas Living is a luxury bungalow in Awas Village, which located in the Alibaug tehsil of Raigad district.

This is the second property of Virat Kohli and his actress wife Anushka Sharma in Alibaug.

The newly built bungalow is a holiday home for him and his family, staying away from chaos and noise of the city.

Speaking about his holiday home, Kohli said that the place should emanate a relaxed and peaceful vibe.

“The most important thing for me in a holiday home is the feeling when you get absolutely relaxed, centered, and peaceful. Just a feeling of home away from your regular home,” Kohli said in a video shared on X.

The villa has the Californian Konkan-style four-bedroom villa, that has an essence of ‘raw luxury’. The hall room of the villa has been bathed with natural light through windows and wall glasses, which shows Kohli’s commitment towards idea of sustainability and sophistication.

Highlighting the most interesting part of his villa, the former Indian captain said, “The most interesting feature is the double-height cut-out ceiling in the living space, as it welcomes natural light. The more the light, the better its energy.”
