Life will be a continual holiday in this magnificent Polynesian style paradise. This truly is a remarkable escape from the ordinary. The residence, made up of three pavilions, surpasses the collective imagination; nestled into the 10,116sqm block surrounded by tropical landscaping and woodland. Stunning as is, this estate also presents an opportunity for the owner to capitalise on this extraordinary piece of real estate by developing now or in the future. (STCA)

The central pavilion comprises a winter lounge complete with an efficient open fireplace with mantle, a library, family bathroom and the four air-conditioned bedrooms including the enormous and grand master with ensuite and not one but two walk-in robes. Adjoining the bathrooms are outdoor showers to wash away the day’s outdoor activities or merely bathe in nature.
The substantial summer lounge, dining kitchen and living area are equally conducive to relaxed family living or grand-scale entertaining with swathes of glass connecting revelers should the party spill to the great outdoors. The updated kitchen easily caters to any event and includes an Ilve 90cm oven, electric and gas hob, pantry, pristine timber countertops and casual meals peninsular.
