Super Luxury Tropical House 4BR/3BA, Pool, In Charming Quiet District Cntrl WPB

Overview

Property

Updated: 27-Jun-2016
House in West Palm Beach, Florida East Coast, USA - Luxurious Historic 4 BR/3 BA House With Glorious Tropical Garden And Pool. Minutes To Beach/Shops

Set in a small, but wonderful, Tropical garden with over 1000 different plants, this 4 bedroom, two story, villa has much to offer a family, or group of friends, looking for an upscale vacation experience in the very heart of the Palm Beach area. The Garden has a chic pool with a waterfall, and small fountains spewing from the mouth of stone lions’ heads. At the front of the House is a lovely bubbling fountain, nestled amongst the flowers and a small terrace for winter sunbathing. Along the side, the little “orchid alley.” At the back is a large built-in barbeque, ideal for outside dining. There are glorious orchids and African lilies, bougainvillea and hibiscus. It is a haven for butterflies and humming birds, a true Tropical paradise. Hidden behind hedges and an Iron Gate on a quiet road, AlCazar dates back to the heyday of historic homes.The house has been fully modernized, but retains many original features, including its own coat of arms on the front, stone and wooden floors, and several wonderful fireplaces (somewhat redundant in Florida!). It has three bedrooms in the main house and a fourth bedroom in the guest cottage. At the front there is a large verandah lined with Pecky Cypress – a great place for Winter breakfasts. In fact there are many different dining spots to choose from – the front Verandah, the dining room itself, a small terrace off the dining room, or right by the pool, next to the barbeque. Downstairs in the main house, as well as the dining room, there is a large living-room, a kitchen, a bathroom and two double bedrooms. Each of the 4 double bedrooms on the property is large enough to accommodate an adult couple. Upstairs in the main house, the Master Bedroom is particularly impressive with fifteen feet high ceilings, its own upscale dressing room, ensuite (enormous) bathroom, and luxury Jacuzzi. It has a terrace overlooking the pool and tropical garden, and its own small office or library for relaxing or working. There are two further bedrooms in the main house which share a bathroom, one which catches the morning sun and overlooks the fountain in the front garden, the other which has a magnificent fireplace and double doors opening onto the back garden and pool. The fourth bedroom is found in the Guest cottage apartment , up a small flight of stairs. This offers privacy for a fourth couple (or single). It too overlooks the pool and garden and has its own kitchen and small bathroom. Alcazar is found in the historic Flamingo Park district, a quiet oasis in the heart of West Palm Beach. It is very easy to get to from all three South Florida airports – Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach – being just a few minutes form Exit 69 on Florida’s highway, the I95. Flamigo Park is a quiet friendly quarter, famous as a retreat for artists and writers attracted by its lovely old houses and glorious Tropical vegetation. The area has its own shops and restaurants , but frankly all of the Palm Beach attractions are within easy reach, many are walkable. The Lake is just a few blocks away, the Beach a five minute drive from there.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tropical Setting

?????

“" We have enjoyed two memorable stays at Alcazar, one in April and one in December and had brilliant weather both times. It is an oasis hidden away. Our family especially enjoyed the plunge pool in its tropical setting. The house was very comfortable and well equipped. We used it as stop off on our tour of Florida, being well located, quiet but near to some major highways. Had some wonderful trips out, including a superb wildlife sanctuary, lovely restaurants and of course the shopping.!"”

Great Place For A Large Family

?????

“"We have stayed at Alcazar several times as a family. The guest rooms are perfect, with the one at the back giving independence and privacy from the main house. There is a kitchen and a laundry area. The children loved the swimming pool and lunch on the terrace. A great place for a large family gathering and we hope to stay there again soon!"”

Oasis of Calm

?????

“"AlCazar is an oasis of calm, away from the hustle and bustle of Miami. A stunning property surrounded by a jungle-like garden, once you have entered through the gates you quite forget the world outside exists at all. With a fabulous master bedroom and a grand drawing room and a further guest property at the rear, it is the perfect place from which to explore Palm Beach."”

Along the side, the little “orchid alley.” At the back is a large built-in barbeque, ideal for outside dining. There are glorious orchids and African lilies, bougainvillea and hibiscus. Flamigo Park is a quiet friendly quarter, famous as a retreat for artists and writers attracted by its lovely old houses and glorious Tropical vegetation. The area has its own shops and restaurants , but frankly all of the Palm Beach attractions are 5 mins.

Facilities

From the Owner

The most gorgeous tropical garden and lovely pool, large well sized rooms and plenty of character. The house is adored by children, but each of the 4 double bedrooms on the property is actually large enough to accommodate an adult couple. Upstairs in the main house, the Master Bedroom is particularly impressive. It has a terrace overlooking the pool and tropical garden, and its own small office or library for relaxing or working. There are two further bedrooms in the main house which share a bathroom, one which catches the morning sun and overlooks the fountain in the front garden, the other which has a magnificent fireplace and double doors opening onto the back garden and pool. The 4th bedroom in the cottage offers privacy.
