Palatial Millionaire’s Masterpiece
This exclusive, uniquely designed and master-built residence sits on 2 979 square metres and has an unrivalled Val de Vie polo field frontage. It offers everything a homeowner could possibly desire, including unspoilt views, opulent luxury and unparalleled innovation.
The breath-taking and commanding entrance of this statuesque home has two life-size marble lion statues welcoming visitors from the gated, double entrance circular driveway.
The triple-volume glass front door frames the picture perfect view beyond and leads into a double-volume entrance hall with custom-designed crystal chandeliers and opal-bone porcelain tiles. An entertainer’s delight, the interleading living areas all flow out onto patios and manicured gardens. The home’s piece-de-resistance is the sun drenched, private swimming pool, on the northern side of the property, with a boma for entertaining.
There is a natural flow in the wide open spaces from the high-spec dream kitchen into the several luxurious dining and lounge areas. The featured bar in French Oak is an artwork in itself. Underfloor heating, central air-conditioning, a fully integrated home automation system and outdoor security cameras are all added features, as are luxury gas fire places.
Stylish accommodation includes the uber-luxury master suite featuring his and hers walk-in dressing rooms, an over-sized bathroom and an indulgent double shower with a steam option. There are a further four double bedrooms all with superbly appointed en-suite bathrooms and plush carpeting.
