This charming 5 bedroom property, located in the beautiful area of Lurin, offers spectacular views over the Caribbean Sea and the islands of Eustacia and Nevis. The layout is ideal for family living and promotes a sense of calm and relaxation throughout the living and outdoor spaces and spectacular gardens.
The Main House
On entry, the elegant main house offers a large, light and comfortable living area, with plenty of space for relaxing and reading. The stunning view is apparent within only a few steps. A brand new gourmet kitchen leads off to the right and is fully equipped with modern appliances and ample preparation areas. The white maple units contrast beautifully with the black marble work surfaces. There is also a laundry room with storage.
The spacious master bedroom, set off to the left of the living area, shares the same beautiful views over the Caribbean sea and has a dressing area and luxurious ensuite with bathtub and oversized shower. A second large bedroom with dressing area and large ensuite can be found in the main house.
The floors throughout the main living, kitchen and bedroom have all been recently re-laid in pale oak wood boards and give a soft and warm feel throughout the house.
A spacious terrace flows on from the living room and is set around a newly retiled infinity pool that overlooks the pretty garden below. The outdoor dining room takes advantage of the superb views and surrounding gardens, yet is protected from the elements thanks to its glass walls.
On the lower level of the main house you will find a fifth bedroom with ensuite bathroom (currently being used as an office) and a garage and store room.
The Guest Cottage
Recently built, this attractive two bedroom guest cottage, set slightly away from the main house, surrounded by lush tropical gardens, offers privacy and is ideal for entertaining friends and family. The spacious bedrooms are set on either side of the kitchen and dining area. Both have large ensuite bathrooms, double marble topped vanity units, spacious showers and ample clothes storage.
A wooden terrace wraps around the house and a comfortable seating area can be found at the front.
A laundry and storage area complete this charming cottage.
The property is reached via a long sweeping driveway, bordered with colourful flowers and shrubs and has a large parking area. Set in 1.3 acres of ground, the overwhelming feeling here is one of peace and privacy. Parts of the garden have been laid to lawn and the garden has been carefully landscaped to blend into the gentle slope of the land. An abundance of tropical plants and flowers, with vibrant hues of oranges, reds and pinks, create this delightful European tropical garden.
Saint Barthélemy is unique from other Caribbean islands. Whilst it has an international reputation as the “retreat of choice” for the rich and famous, it is also a protected jewel for its inhabitants, with restrictions on development and mindful conservation of the underdeveloped land that houses the island’s flora and fauna.
This property, located in the sought after area of Lurin, is just moments away from the wonderful and beautiful white sandy beach of Gouverneur bay and yet also just a few minutes drive from the main centre of Gustavia, which bustles with its designer shipping and gourmet restaurants.
