It is one of those fairytale homes captured only by the imagination of a Hollywood film director or better still, a 21st century reinvention of the glory and splendor of the Château de Versailles in France.
Standing and sprawling over a choice 5 acres of prime land reportedly worth a whopping $3 million, Palacio De Okeowo is a three-floor Victorian edifice overlooking the sea at one part. It is said to be the biggest property of its kind in Parkview, Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria, spanning a period of 11 months from its inception to completion.
Built and owned by property czar, Sir Olu Okeowo, the magnificent edifice is conservatively valued at $12 million, excluding the inside fittings, furniture and of course, the luxury cars which include at least five Rolls-Royces and an array of other eye-popping vehicles!
Sand-filling and claiming a good 5,000 square metres of the sea as extra land to situate the castle’s swimming pool, Palacio De Okeowo’s architectural construct reveals a masterpiece only a mind like Okeowo’s could possibly conceive.
Palacio De Okeowo is one edifice that can proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with any from any part of the globe, parading all the luxuries that money can afford; its own helipad, a jetty and a chapel.
