The property documents of the deal, registered on Thursday, calls the property as “an old style house built in the early 1980s much before coastal regulation zone laws were enforced.” It added that the land is filled with fruit trees.

The Damanis have heavily invested in Alibaug, the report said. Radhakishan Damani boguth the five-star Radisson Blu Resort & Spa for Rs 138 crore in 2015. Locals say that the family also has a large farmhouse spread over 20 acres in Jirad village.

The report quoted sources saying that during the lockdown, social media was flooded with posts of families walking in large gardens, or jogging on beach or swimming. Others also wanted a similar lifestyle, they said.

Actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh purchased a house in Mapgaon village for Rs 22 crore, the report quoted sources as saying. The rush increased when around 150 families from the Maharashtra capital shifted to their weekend homes after lockdown.
