Terres Basses, St.Martin - 5 bedroom villa
The moment you drive into the beautiful stone walled garden courtyard, an enticing glimpse of the sea appears before you. Enter the house and the view expands to its full glory. Straight ahead is the inviting blue pool and the mesmerizing sapphire waters of Baie Longue, Baie Prune and the Caribbean Sea. The vistas flow from one side of the villa to the other, visible from every room. All around you are beautiful tropical gardens - it is paradise.
The atmosphere in this elegant and charming villa is a blend of South of France meets the Caribbean. Serene whites mix with iconic Provence prints and classic colors of yellow, blue and mango. Beautiful carved teak doors and teak furniture mix with wicker both inside and out. Eclectic art and accessories add a very personal touch. Soft terracotta floors flow throughout.
On the right as you enter the villa is the spacious, fully air conditioned indoor living and dining area. To the left is the large sunny yellow gourmet kitchen where you can channel your inner Julia Child while cooking on the stunning Lacanche stove. You truly feel as if you are in the South of France. Each of the interior rooms flows seamlessly out onto the covered terraces and sun decks. The space is filled with comfortable seating and inviting areas for al fresco dining, lounging, playing, and enjoying the view plus barbequing on the fabulous Viking grill. The large, renovated pool has built in tables and seating, creating a perfect perch to enjoy a cool beverage.
All five bedrooms are spacious, have walk-in closets and fabulous views. The décor reflects the fabrics and colors of Provence. The large en suite bathrooms feature handmade Provence tiles, each bathroom in a different color. Three bedrooms are off the main living room. The two bedrooms on the lower level have private terraces and views.
Although secluded, you are very close to amenities. You are steps from Baie Longue Beach. It’s a short drive to Baie Nettle’s new culinary stars; Le Sand, Dreams and Mezza Luna. In 10 minute you reach the charming French capital of Marigot with restaurants, shops and galleries, historic buildings and the Creole Market. Drive 15 minutes and you’re at the airport. Drive 25 minutes to Grand Case and Philipsburg’s shopping haven.
