This property is unique in so many ways. First and foremost with its architecture, designed by Francois Pécard and which blends perfectly the contemporary lines and inspiration St Barths. Conveniently situated in the heights of Lurin, in the privacy of the Lotissement Andres, the property’s panoramas over the ocean and surrounding hills are equally exceptional.
The magnificent visual perspectives, envisaged by the architect, bring together the charm of the flora and the warmth of the native rocks, in this alluring home. The essence of the island can be found in the granite of the roads and the entrance, in the winding paths leading to the bedrooms through the garden, which is filled with rare shrubs, cacti and limestone rocks and in the open spaces facing out onto the views.
Comfort is ubiquitous, with the use of fine materials, furniture designed by Catherine Pawson and high-tech equipment. The main building boasts an Italian glass kitchen with Gaggenau appliances and a vast living room, perfect for relaxing in. The spacious bedrooms, located in separate bungalows, each have a bathroom with oversized showers, a terrace and their own private pool. The large deck areas allow both the daylight and the soft trade winds to flow freely around the house.
The main terrace area is embellished with a Japanese pond and a lava stone mirror swimming pool, with an endless mirage of the sky above.
New layout - lower part
In 2018, a project to change the layout of the property was approved by a building permit.
It encompasses the creation of a 57 ft long infinity pool and a solarium on the lower part, just in front of the current fitness area, which would be converted into an open living space, with an extended covered deck.
Footpaths will connect the bedrooms to the newly created pool area.
These alterations will allow guests the choice between enjoying the totality of Villa Jasmine, including 4 bedrooms and 2 pools, or simply being able to relax in total privacy and freedom in this new independent 2-bedroom villa, that could be rented separately.
