“Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Set on the west-facing slope of La Tourelle, Kalyaana is a recently completed, and entirely unique property, one specifically created with location, view, luxury, and privacy, all as ‘must-have’ essentials.
Designed by British and Australian owners, together with Black Sun Architects, it truly is an inspired, one-of-a-kind creation, standing shoulder to shoulder with the very finest of international homes. The property is extremely generous in size at 1 300 m², yet, by purposeful design, it maintains a homely, welcoming, and modern-tropical feel.
Situated only a few minutes from the gorgeous beaches of the West Coast of Mauritius, Kalyaana maintains security and privacy inside La Plantation Marguery, a charmingly eclectic and peaceful gated community, immediately adjacent to the West Coast’s most prominent boutique shopping area, Le Ruisseau Creole. The home enjoys uninterrupted 180 degree views, reaching from the World Heritage site of Le Morne to the South, spanning across miles of stunning turquoise lagoon to the dolphin-haven of neighbouring Tamarin to the North.
The property has four generous and luxurious double bedrooms, each with its own entirely unique en-suite. In addition, there is also a gym, a yoga room, a games room, a cinema room, a TV room, an office, a large double garage (with generous storage), and an internal lift from garage level down to kitchen level. The gym and yoga room can be used as additional bedrooms with their own en-suites as and when required, offering up to 6 double bedrooms.
Making up the well-planned back of house elements, there is also a grease Kitchen, a superbly-equipped laundry, a linen Room, a generous store, and an enormous technical Room/additional store under the pool.
Interiors are of the highest quality throughout, with timber work to ceilings, floors, doors, and stairs, all by Mavenci, bedroom showers and master bath tub from Catchpole & Rye (UK), kitchen and laundry both by Schmidt (Germany), marble kitchen island by Simon Taylor Furniture (UK), and all steel windows, doors and screens made locally by specialist metal-workers, NSR Engineering.
The entire house benefits from the luxury of a Vantage intelligent lighting control system. All bedrooms, principal rooms, veranda and external dining have three scene settings, allowing a change of mood at the touch of a button. These scenes can also be changed in real-time using the Equinox controller in the kitchen, or via mobile phones or tablets. The system also controls ON/OFF for air conditioning and fans in all bedrooms, as well as in the office, gym, cinema Room, TV Room, and master en-suite. All bedrooms and principal rooms have run-quiet ducted air conditioning. Black-out blinds in the master are also controlled by the Vantage system, even from the bedside.
All bedrooms have stylish floating-effect beds, all set in situ for the best views possible, as well as Catchpole & Rye ‘Le Thermo’ rain showers in all of the en-suites. The master en-suite has a double shower room, a gorgeous copper Catchpole & Rye bath, and the added luxury of his and hers toilets.
Kalyaana is unique, stylish, perfectly located, beautifully appointed, and thoroughly considered, in every way possible. It is nothing other than a ‘must-see’.
