The splendid VLI villa is located in a quiet street in Gustavia. Designed on two-storey by the architectural firm Architectonik, this property is a true contemporary jewel.
The architects designed a space in perfect harmony with the exterior, taking over and modernizing some of the architectural codes typical of the island's traditional houses, such as the gray cladding on the exterior walls and the white wooden shutters.
From the entrance, the style is marked by a combination of light wood furniture and a trendy color palette that perfectly match and contrast with the white walls.
On the first floor, the main living area is sublimated by numerous collectibles, artworks, and photos. The space has been furnished with magnificent and high-end furniture from Italy with brands such as Cassina and B&B Italia.
The villa is flooded with natural light which enhances the softness of the wood thanks to the various openings to the exterior space. The kitchen is refined and stylish with a central island in dark stone.
At the heart of the property, a patio unveils a small deck with an indigo-blue pool, loungers and a sofa set up along the pool. There is also a guest toilet.
A little further on, a staircase leads to the upper level which houses the three bedrooms, whose corridor with glazed walls and floor overlooks the living room as much as the outdoor space. The bedrooms are similarly furnished with a wood and rattan bed, colorful bedside tables, a desk, and a custom-made clothes closet. The combination of neutral tones with brightly colored decor elements and noble materials reinforces the soothing and comfortable atmosphere while adding a modern touch. Two of the rooms share a minimalist bathroom. The master bedroom overlooks the patio and has its own elegant en suite bathroom with refined and light lines.
This property is a truly private and intimate reserve in the heart of Gustavia. Its location gives it an ideal setting near restaurants, shops and Shell Beach.
It also has a large laundry room, a technical room and a room near the kitchen that can be used for storage or a pantry.
