Property description

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.

Year Purchased: 2009

About: Couple working in the arts with large family, and many friends who visit. Active in the local community, and very much enjoying all that West Palm Beach has to offer. We enjoy relaxing in the garden, sunbathing, dipping in the pool to cool off, the various leisure activities, the restaurants and of course the beaches.

Why Poiciana Park II, West Palm Beach, FL, USA:
Hidden behind hedges and an Iron Gate on a quiet road, AlCazar is a unique Spanish colonial house. 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. The house has many original features, including its own coat of arms on the front, stone and wooden floors, gorgeous wooden doors, 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. Florida is unbeatable when it comes to the combination of Winter sunshine, long beaches and excellent restaurants and things to do. West Palm Beach is one of the most interesting resorts, with more character and distinction than other Florida spots while still being relaxed and carefree. This house is a very special place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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 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.
