Calauag House is a transplanted house from Calauag, Quezon. It was built in 1920’s by Thomas Morato, the first Mayor of Quezon City. This historic house was frequented by President Manuel L. Quezon and other dignitaries. It was called “Bahay sa Bundok” because it was built on top of a hill overlooking Calauag Bay. The 234 sqm “silong” is now being used to serve meals. It is furnished with antique hard wood tables and chairs and bangko. Old colored glass windows, narra capiz doors and hanging lamps on cantoneras completes the period look. Seating capacity is 120 persons.
A few upgrades has been introduced to the house. Colored glass on top of the window replacing the capiz, a landing in the front door before the stairs, glass doors at the rear for more light, new Calados as none was left, additional set of stairs to access the second floor, removed one post in the middle of the living room.
The ground floor was typical-earth. Playground for the children. It is now the dining area for our guest. It is also perfect for a Filipiniana inspired wedding complete with calados, colored glass panels, capiz doors, cantoreras, colored lanterns and hand made baldoza tiles. Complemented with beautiful landscaping, one can lose track of time in this area
Cheers to our engineers and craftsmen, we can still enjoy the grandeur of the past.
