This iconic home sits directly on the waterfront with direct access to water in the exclusive community of Vigie. It faces north, with views of the north west coastline and to the neighbouring island of Martinique.
The house is approached from a sweeping driveway down from the main access and through an elegant arched gateway. From there it opens out to a generous paved fore-court with adequate visitor parking.
The house itself is classical, almost victorian design of excellent proportions. Its solidness is softened with a curved portico in the entrance and by a series of smaller curved Juliet balconies at the north and south ends of the main floors. The house has two levels, with the reception rooms at the entry level and the bedrooms above. To the northern end, are two lower levels under part of the building – leading to the pool terrace below.
The main floor reception areas are open plan and comprise both formal and informal dining areas - the latter with a fine tiled semi-circular bar. A feature of this space is a central oval indoor garden with fountain, which carries on above it with a galleried atrium through the upper floor, to a domed sky-light in the flat roof.
A fine curved open stairway leads to the upper floor. This stairway opens into an informal family/tv area. Surrounding the open atrium are the bedrooms. The master suite is a generous 572 sq ft comprising bedroom, private sitting area, walk – in closets and fully tiled bathroom with jacuzzi tub. There are three other bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms.
Below the main house are a self contained apartment and a large double entry garage. Below this is another similar sized apartment. From this lowest level, steps sweep down to the pool terrace with 3 free-form pools.
This home is priced to sell. Its combination of location in a private and secure neighbourhood and walking distance to a white sand beach, makes it an excellent investment property with huge potential as an income generating property for vacation rentals.
