This very private property was created in 1996 with the intention of having a home in a prime waterfront location, with flexibility to accommodate additional family and guests.
The current owners created Mangroves. They ensured that the main house was discreetly positioned, surrounded by lush tropical gardens, yet still managed to take advantage of the spectacular views over the Caribbean Sea to the sister Island of St Kitts.
The estate covers almost 2 acres, with landscaped gardens bordering the sandy shore of the Caribbean Sea.
The main house offers 6 spacious bedrooms. Each bedroom has a private en-suite.
There are two guest cottages. They are perfect as private accommodation and each one 2 bedrooms and and two bathrooms.
In addition to the large swimming pool, other recreational facilities include a flood lit tennis court, a small well equipped exercise room and gated access to the sandy beach at the bottom of the garden.
Access to the property is along a private, cut stone, driveway bordered by Royal palms leading to the front double entrance doors.
INTERIOR: The double entrance doors lead into a small foyer, in turn leads into the spacious living room. This room immediately makes a statement of understated elegance and your eye is immediately drawn through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors to the spectacular view, over the swimming pool, to St Kitts. The high ceilings are typical of Nevisian grand houses and the space allows a comfortable breeze to flow.
As you would expect, the kitchen is very well equipped. It has a small breakfast corner and gives access to the screened dining area on the veranda. There is a laundry room to the side of the kitchen.
The master bedroom suite has a private veranda with views of the landscaped gardens. It also has a walk-in closet and a generously proportioned 5-piece bathroom suite.
The guest bedroom is equally equipped with an en-suite bathroom and plenty of closet space.
Adjacent to the master bedroom is a small office.
EXTERIOR: A shaded sitting area provides an ideal place to retire from the sun, yet still have the cooling sea breeze. Perhaps, you might have cocktails here before eating in the screened dining area? The screened veranda currently comfortably houses 12 seated guests. This really is a wonderful place to pass time as you have the advantage of a sea view.
The guest cottages each have 2 bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms. The bedrooms and bathrooms are on the top floors. The ground floors have a small kitchen and additional rooms.
The gardens have been carefully landscaped to ensure privacy from the access road. Renowned British landscape designer, Julie Toll, established the gardens from their inception and still visits regularly to provide care and maintenance as well as advice to the full time gardener.
Within the garden, you have a flood lit, hard tennis court. Ideal for playing in the evenings. Between the house and the beach access, the 30’ x 15’ infinity-edge swimming pool is perfectly placed for privacy and surrounded by a sun deck. There is a gazebo and a Jacuzzi close to the pool.
The property has Cistern water and a generator. The house(s) totals 4,480 Sq ft internally with an additional 1,300 Sq ft of terraces. The total lot size is 1.88 acres.
