Mandalay Villa takes its cues from the islands it’s part of: the spectacular Turks & Caicos in the Atlantic Ocean. With a colour theme of blue and white, and water features snaking across its two-acre expanse, the property exudes a fun beach house and flush mansion vibe all at once.

The villa has a blue and white colour scheme

The open-plan villa was the winner of HGTV’s Ultimate House Hunt 2017, which saw fans of the channel’s house and garden shows, such as House Hunters, cast their votes for the most beautiful residential real estate in the world.

The property has pools outdoors and within

The property has a living space of 1,235 square metres, which spans seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms – enough for when pool-party guests want to stay over. The pools, themselves, are multiple – both inside and outside the house, and along the walkway leading to the ocean-facing deck.

Outdoors is gorgeous, not only in the day but also at night-time when the indirect lighting around the deck and bar areas comes on. There’s also a separate outdoor kitchen and dining terrace.

The master bedroom

The master bedroom has its own living area, a private lounge with spa-like features, and a beach-facing deck and ocean-facing bathtub.
