Banana Island is home to some of the most expensive and prestigious homes in Africa. It’s also home to the highest number of billionaires in the continent. In fact, 36 occupants of this island own private jets.
Inside Banana Island is one of the most luxorious buildings which we’ll be exploring today. It’s called the Giuliano de’ Medici which is named after the Medici family which was a powerful family that captured the ideals and principles of the Florence renaissance.
The Giuliano has 8 luxury 5 bedroom terrace apartments and 2 of the best penthouses in Lagos. It also has a 3-car garage, a cinema, and a general pool.
Recently, singer Davido, one of the biggest musicians in Africa, purchased one of the units in this multi-million dollar mansion.
This building was designed by Sujimoto Constructions which is one of the top luxury real-estate development companies in Africa.
Are you ready to see the luxurious house that Davido has now found an abode in? It’s very expensive and very exquisite. I can’t wait to show you. Ready to jump in? Then let’s go!
It has a total of 10 apartments, 2 on the rooftop which are the penthouse apartments and 8 5 bedroom luxury terrace apartments. It costs $1,500,000 per apartment which in Naira today will equal just about N561,000,000.
It’s a really massive house.
The Pool is about 5 feet tall and gorgeous.
The house is fully equipped with CCTV cameras. Also, to now get into Banana Island, they change the security code every hour. So if you’re not a resident, you won’t be able to have access to the residential area or if you don’t know somebody who stays there who can give you the code, you won’t be able to get access to the estate.
So security wise, this is one the most secure estates in Lagos.
Also a nice little feature this has is the electronic gate. The gate is electronic so you don’t have to get down from your car or hire a gateman. All you need is your gate remote control. One press and it opens, you’re in and no one else can get in except they have that remote control.
Inside The House.
The front door of each apartment has a key card like you’ll find in hotels. Once you open the front door, there is the elevator, inside your house. Insane!
The main living room is spacious and gorgeous.
The kitchen is state of the art. Beautifully finished, induction cookers, luxorious.
There is a control panel from where the entire house can be controlled. You know, like something you see in those oyibo films. The house has electronic curtains that open and close by the click of a button.
There are several other living rooms around the house if you want to just hangout with your family in a different part of the house.
The master bedroom has it’s own personal living room area. The room is spacious. Look at it, it screams luxury!
It also has a walk-in closet! Yeah, that’s when you know a house is expensive. When the house has a whole walk-in closet. Which by the way has always fascinated me because how many clothes could I possibly own so much so that I’d need a whole separate room just to store them. I guess, these are the problems of the rich, what do I know?
Below are pictures from the guest bedrooms, bathrooms, and other parts of the house. Check it out. Bask in the pictures.
Undeniably, this is a beautiful house!
