As the ancient iron gates majestically sweep open leading to the 'Botanica Whitsundays' grounds, be prepared to fall in love. Decades in the planning and never to be replicated, 'Botanica Whitsundays' was designed in the spirit of innovation fusing the classical and new age. The property presents an unparalleled combination: a glamorous private residence in the sub-tropics and an award-winning wedding and event venue.
'Botanica Whitsundays', situated on 5.46 acres with 160 metres of Coral Sea frontage, was thoughtfully considered using naturally rich construction materials and native vegetation. It was conceived as the ultimate dream home for those who love entertaining and those who seek privacy in a peaceful oasis.
The lavish oceanfront residence encompasses interior and exterior spaces as one and is considered a work of art with its handcrafted finishes from imported timbers to woven rattan. A grandly proportioned living room with soaring cathedral ceilings is the main residence centrepiece and organically connects the outdoor living areas, manicured gardens, ponds, lush rainforest and walkways. A wraparound veranda with rows of Balinese fluted timber columns delineates its perimeter.
Providing flexibility, there is a modern family kitchen when cooking for two or a stainless steel commercial kitchen when entertaining scores of guests for a seated dinner.
On level two of the main residence there are two elaborate master bedroom suites with four-metre plus ceilings. Ocean vistas extending across the horizon are captured from the adjoining balcony of each suite.
Connected to the main residence by a paved walkway is a guest pavilion with two bedrooms, each with an ensuite and adjoining garden terrace.
In the 10 years since its inception as a destination wedding and events venue, 'Botanica Whitsundays' has set a benchmark with awards and accolades bestowed by industry associations and Queensland Tourism. Licenses and permits are in place to host 160 events annually; with hospitality equipment and infrastructure in place.
'Botanica Whitsundays' is ready for its next owner to discover and enjoy as a private residence or take over an established entity in the lucrative business of weddings. We extend you an invitation for a private inspection to experience this magical property for yourself.
