This wonderful Caribbean villa is built in the style of traditional homes on the islands but with the added advantage of modern techniques and products.
Capturing perfectly the traditional “blouse and skirt” styling of half stone half wood, this home reflects what is possible when you marry the old and new and create a wonderful harmonious home.
Charming colour scheme of lilac, pale yellow and grey with fresh white trim, it pops perfectly in the landscape like some tropical bloom and compliments perfectly against the azure sky and sea.
The welcoming front porch, with seating benches, which offer a cooling late afternoon hideaway, lead you into the open plan living space by hardwood screened louvered doors – these are a recurring feature throughout the property – based on traditional windows which provide a constant air flow and allow you to control the level of breeze and light to suit.
The main floor has a high cathedral ceiling and is whizzing with ceiling fans – it offers a intimate indoor dining space, library wall and seating area with TV.
The kitchen goes off to the right and is a fully fitted country style layout that any cook would love to get into. A large gas range is a feature of the room and is crowned by a large stainless steel extractor hood. A large wooden kitchen table offers plenty of prep space and the open plan shelving and plate racks create a chic magazine feel to this room.
There are 2 porches which run the length of the front of the house to take advantage of the spectacular sea view – St Kitts frames the horizon and you look over the gorgeous grounds of the newly re-opened Mount Nevis Hotel which lies below – its Norfolk pine trees majestically reaching towards the sky and creating points of interest. This ever changing landscape can be enjoyed from the screened in outdoor sitting room or from the other side which features an outdoor dining option accessed directly from the sitting room.
The principal bedroom features a large 4 poster bed, floor to ceiling window (with stainless steel railings) so you can enjoy that fabulous view before you get up in the morning, a walk in closet, desk and comfy wicker armchairs finish off this room. The main bathroom features a walk in tiled shower, double vanity and WC.
The guest twin bedroom is a charming room in a fabulous palette of bright pink guava and lime -it also features a white rattan seating area allowing guests some private space and a bathroom with tiled shower, WC and vanity.
The ground floor features a third bedroom/office – this is currently set up as an office with a sofa pullout and also has a shower room with WC and basin – this could easily be fully fully converted to a 3rd bedroom or kept as a flexible space.
The under-house has a vast storage space/garage which is home to all the equipment for the property and pool and plenty more besides!
There is also a covered terrace area here which creates a shady option for a outdoor seating area or summer kitchen.
There is a lot of scope to add some further accommodation to this villa – or just enjoy this delightful property as is !
This villa is set in a generous half acre of fully fenced garden with a 20′ x 12′ in ground tiled swimming pool surrounded by a large sun terrace.
The villa is in close proximity to Lovers Beach, a beautiful wild beach which you will experience mostly to yourself – its a great spot for swimming and enjoying a long beach walk. The Mount Nevis Hotel has a lovely restaurant, headed up by chef Liam and provides lunch and dinner daily at their restaurant alongside their large swimming pool. The road leading up to the villa snakes through the Mount Nevis hotel and passes en route the Cottle Church heritage site on the way up – this is a very popular venue for weddings and would be an attraction if you planned on renting out Farniente.
It is also walking distance from the Cat Ghaut honesty box 12 hole golf course – a fun spot to drive a few balls and get some exercise – it is a convivial course with lots of regular players and is privately owned by a golf enthusiast !
Farniente is ideally situated just minutes from the main water taxi pier and all the watersport options at Oualie Beach, minutes from the small Newcastle airport and 15 minutes to Charlestown for all your main shopping.
