5724 Observation Crescent SANCTUARY COVE
MANDALAY - Luxury home for families or Hollywood Stars!
Renowned amongst celebrity agents for its privacy, luxury and home away from home ambience is this sprawling residence and detached, self-contained guesthouse on a 2021m2 land parcel within the premium confines of inimitable Sanctuary Cove.
Immersed in the privacy of a mature tropical garden setting, the Ralph Bailey-designed masterpiece delivers a classic take on the traditional Queenslander to showcase a stunning Helidon sandstone faade enveloped entirely by extensive bullnose verandas. Mandalay’s interiors emanate a relaxed elegance, warmth and sense of home, created by emotive selections, references to life experiences around the world, and attention to detail in furniture, dcor and quality finishes.
Combined with raw and natural timber and stone, and the oasis created by tropical gardens, Mandalay reflects a notion of understated luxury and comfort. This includes the mellow aura of French limestone floors, balanced by solid brass fittings and the warmth of exposed timber posts, architraves, and a statement staircase crafted from jarrah. Ceilings soar – from 3.2 metres downstairs and 3.7 metres upstairs to 9 metres in the foyer – while banks of glass invite natural light and frame the idyllic garden setting.
The floor plan provides dedicated spaces for every occasion family time, work, large-scale entertaining, intimate gatherings, private relaxation time, and recreational fun. There are four spacious bedrooms upstairs including the luxury master suite which is afforded relaxation space below vaulted ceilings, a balcony, spa ensuite, walk-in wardrobe, and private access to the fully equipped gymnasium. There is a media room, an open gallery and ensuing balcony, large hobby room, executive mezzanine study with a private sitting room, a study alcove, multi-purpose space with adjoining Florida room, and a formal lounge room. The casual living and dining space is open plan, interactive and light filled, serviced by a custom kitchen imported from England with two ovens, a gas cooktop, extensive stone preparation and serving benches, and a walk-in pantry. French doors allow seamless integration with multiple alfresco spaces from sheltered verandas to the exposed sun lounging terrace and a pooltop entertaining pavilion. Glass besets the heated, fully tiled pool and wading ledge fronting a stunning vertical privacy wall of mature foliage.
One of just two properties in Sanctuary Cove with a guest house, the detached villa comprises a living room, kitchenette, full bathroom with a double vanity, bedroom with a mirrored built-in wardrobe, and a private terracotta-tiled patio.
