Award winning architectural designed resort style sanctuary – sparkling pool and tennis court all within landscaped botanical garden

“Pavilions in the Gardens” offers an extraordinary blend of architectural design and luxury in an exclusive setting that emphasizes sustainable living like no other. Esteemed architects have come together to create an exceptional residence that prioritizes energy efficiency and contemporary living. Comprising four interconnected exquisite pavilions, sparkling pool and north-south tennis court within beautifully landscaped botanical garden, showcasing a sophisticated use of materials and versatile spaces that align perfectly with the demands of modern families. This iconic home is an absolute sanctuary of delight.

Proudly envisioned in the early 2000s by the esteemed architect Andrew Phillips of Swanbury Penglase, this remarkable family residence boasts an array of beautiful architectural features. Tucked away in privacy, surrounded by enchanting Japanese-inspired gardens and serene ponds, upon stepping inside, you’ll be captivated by the serenity of the garden, stunning design elements and the remarkable adaptability of the well-crafted floor plan for modern family living.

This home offers four to five bedrooms and a couple of versatile living spaces. The open-plan design exudes luxury Vogue ambiance and complemented by a gourmet kitchen featuring a walk-in pantry.

This residence is tailor-made for indoor/outdoor living and entertaining.

Notably, this remarkable home has earned numerous awards, including four AIA Architectural Awards (in 2003 and 2011).
