Here, you can go for a swim while looking out onto the horizon and then going for a dip in the vivid turquoise Caribbean Sea.
By the pool lies a sizeable octagonal gazebo with a Chinese design, complete with lounging furniture and a small coffee table. The gazebo was designed by architect Larry Warren and seats up to fourteen people. It is conveniently equipped with a wet bar and fridge. You will really be able to take in your stunning surrounding environment at this spot, whether thats through quiet meditation or a glass of wine with a friend or loved one.
The villa has been most recently renovated to fuse classic Palladian architecture with modern and contemporary appliances and amenities, all directed by architect Brian Surfleet. Inside, stone walls and tiled floors decorate the living spaces, as well as artistic ornaments, sculptures and fine art emblazoned onto the walls. Some of the most striking features in the home include a glass-topped table and French antique chairs in the dining room that is lit up by candlelight only.
To find entertainment in the evenings you wont even have to leave the villa. If you fancy a night in, head to the media room which comprises of a 55” flat screen television with surround sound and a diverse library of over 400 DVDs.
