As seen on "Unreal Estate" recently, this amazing home is now ready for its new owners.
With spectacular views, private marina, Mediterranean inspired architecture and unrivaled luxury features throughout, Mandalay House is a dream home on the beautiful Whitsunday Coast, located at the heart of the World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia.
The owners worked with an open cheque book alongside their architect who specialises in Mediterranean style resort architecture. When you walk through the home it feels like you're looking through a picture frame, every detail has been considered with unobstructed vistas from every angle.
'Mandalay House' took 3.5 years to build, nothing was overlooked during the construction period, with high quality artisans and materials sourced from overseas and Australia. The owners have traveled extensively and drew direct inspiration from homes in Nice and Monte Carlo, they were passionate about ensuring the building materials honoured the Mediterranean style of homes, the patina of every surface and construction of the home was crafted to ensure the building gets better and better with age.
The architect and his interior designer partner traveled through Europe for inspiration prior to the build phase and they purchased exact furniture to suit the shape of every room.
The property is opulent, a sequence of increasingly rich interiors, reminiscent of the Baroque period with most of the antiquities originating from Italy and the United States.
The horizon swimming pool feels like it's part of the home, when you walk through the interior you get a constant glimpse of the pool from every room, it literally feels like it's inside the home, on the ocean side wet edge runs off continuously into the Coral Sea.
