The epitome of colonial-style island living, Magnolia Palace sits proudly upon approximately 8000 sqm of sweeping manicured lawns, fiercely private, it is surrounded by walled gardens of dense mature trees and bamboo.
Architecturally crafted with careful attention to detail, the sprawling residence is designed to capture the effortless tranquillity and richness of yesteryear. Purposely built to operate as a luxurious self-sufficient, eco-retreat, the accommodation encompasses seven grand-sized bedrooms, all with ensuites appointed with contrasting rich natural timber vanities and oversized spa baths. Every room features 12-foot ceilings, finely detailed crown moulding, chandeliers, ducted air conditioning, French doors and louvre windows, enveloping rooms with an abundance of natural light and airy ventilation.
The main living and dining area, sumptuous by scale and size, detailed with moulding and chandeliers, provide a seamless flow from inside out, magnified by the use of large sliding doors to capture the framed vistas of lush green lawns, mature Poincianas and distant Jacarandas. The well-appointed kitchen is commercially inspired and equipped to adequately cater to all guests and large social gatherings, incorporating a walk-in cool room.
Central to the main residence is a perfectly considered breezeway providing cool respite and calming sanctuary during the heat of subtropic living and balmy nights, aesthetically appointed with plinths and arches housing lush green palms, ideal for alfresco dining or quiet reflection. Following on through the breezeway is a separately constructed studio, ideal to service as business operations, home office or provide further accommodation space.
A commanding presence adjacent to the main residence is the stately 12-metre saltwater pool and pavilion area. Echoed beautifully in the construction of the pavilion is the use of columned arched porticos, again layering the property with another level of sophistication and timeless refinement. The pavilion can be utilised as additional guest accommodation, equally appointed with the same inclusions as the main residence. An eight-person Western Red Cedar sauna/steam room and separate privately enclosed heated therapeutic spa complete the area.
Within the grounds, you will find various orchards housing mature fruit trees including citrus, mango, avocado, olive and native fruit trees plus the provision of raised garden beds to house an array of organically grown vegetable, fruit and herb offerings.
Incorporating environmental components, the estate takes full advantage of its northerly aspect, powered with the benefit of 60 solar panels and securely screened louvred windows that capitalise on sea breeze cross ventilation. Additionally, there is an 80,000-litre water tank negating the need to utilise mains water as well as an extensive commercially sized septic system.
Opulence and grandeur are reflected in all aspects of this estate, aesthetically embodying luxury and resort-style living. Shadowed by magnificent Cuban palm trees, Magnolia Palace encapsulates all that is desired in exclusively appointed getaways.
