When designing luxury homes, South Florida architects have been known to draw inspiration from the British West Indies. However, few exemplify the iconic style as flawlessly as the Bonair model by Hasey Construction. If you’re in search of new luxury homes for sale in the Palm Beaches, this lavish model is one that is sure to exceed even the highest of expectations.

Island-Inspired Details

A tropical feel is prominent from the moment you pull up to the motor court of this stunning Isle Estate home. The handsome shutters on the windows are a staple for British West Indies homes. Another feature that is sure to attract your attention is the subtle overhang of the roof, which borrows from Bermuda architectural styles.

Inside, tall beamed ceilings taken from the island style are both functional and decorative, keeping the room cool while offering a dose of elegance. The open floor plan is another mark of British West Indies architecture, which favors an airy layout. Upstairs, two terraces provide a space to enjoy the outdoors, an interpretation of the wide verandas that served as sleeping porches in traditional British West Indies homes.

Though not necessarily influenced by the British West Indies, the other interior features are worth noting. Comprised of four bedrooms, five full baths and two half baths, the split floor plan also offers a great room, a club room, a study, and a large upstairs lounge. In the luxurious master bedroom, you’ll find his and her baths and spacious walk-in closets. The home also features an elevator and a masterfully designed kitchen with a gas cooktop, the finest appliances and a functional center island. 


Where Indoor and Outdoor Living Intertwine

Perhaps the single most defining characteristic of British West Indies architecture is the seamless blend of indoor and outdoor living. The Bonair certainly reflects this, with an open and expansive outdoor living room that joins effortlessly with the indoor living area when the large sliding doors connecting the two are opened. A similar set of doors link the kitchen area to the covered patio, which also boasts its own summer kitchen with a built-in grill. The exterior is completed by a sparkling pool and plenty of lush tropical landscaping, that will have you and your guests feeling like you are on your own private island. However, the breathtaking lake and golf course views will remind you that you’re in beautiful South Florida, just steps away from our renowned golf course.
