Just once in a while a property investment opportunity arises where a truly exceptional location is complemented by inspired architecture and uncompromised luxury.
Mount du Cap is a 38 acre estate situated at one of St Lucia’s most exclusive addresses, a development of quality bespoke homes, with commanding views of the island and of neighbouring Martinique. The concept for this exclusive community was born to capitalise on the location’s stunning al fresco appeal and proximity to nearby amenities, while offering the seclusion, security and privacy boasting stunning Caribbean and Atlantic Sea Views.
The Villas at Mount du Cap have been designed to maximize the views afforded to this prime real estate in St Lucia.
According to the thesaurus, ‘Serendipity’ means a happy coincidence or good luck, but one step through its double hardwood doors and the discerning buyer will see that the design of this unique villa has not been left to chance.
Boasting three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, a private study and four thousand square feet of upscale design details, Villa Serendipity sits on more than three quarters of an acre at Cap Estate’s highest point, Mount Du Cap.
The bespoke design of the property uses curved walls and fluid lines to create a cosy yet spacious home, with the living and sleeping areas laid out in a protective hug around the coral stone sun deck and forty foot heated saltwater swimming pool.
Inside the villa’s grand entrance, every room has its own version of the spectacular panorama that surrounds Serendipity, and from the main salon, three sets of solid wood and glass French doors drag every visitor’s eye straight to the jaw-dropping vista with their arched shape that echoes throughout the interior design.
Exposed rafters and whitewashed cathedral ceilings maximise the cooling effect of the trade winds, while cool marble floor tile is laid on the diagonal, lending another element of flow to the design.
Along the serpentine ‘rear’ of Villa Serendipity runs a wide, columned terrace which connects the indoors with tropical outdoor living in a seamless layout that runs around the glistening tiled pool to the home’s east and west wings.
Casual dining and healthy sun-worship, relaxed seating groups and picturesque corners characterise this wonderful pool terrace, which has one of the most comprehensive views on the island, and leads to the gently sloping, well-established garden that surrounds the home.
To the right of the foyer is the impressive kitchen, which has all the practical features of modern functional design combined with an elegant, updated art deco flavour. Black granite countertops contrast with white ceramic trough sinks and there are self-closing cupboards above and below for every conceivable need.
A charming breakfast nook in the kitchen surrounded by French doors to the pool provides another indoor/outdoor space, while adjoining is the outdoor kitchen and entertaining area, a stunning hexagonal gazebo complete with barbecue and space for seating large groups.
The villa’s two guest bedrooms and study lie off a jalousie shutter-lined corridor, and each have a signature view from every window or French door. Ensuite bathrooms with Carrera marble vanities and spacious rainhead showers have an old Caribbean decor, while each room’s patio leads through the garden to the pool deck.
Upstairs is Villa Serendipity’s crowning glory: The Master Suite, a spectacular private haven which boasts the very best views on the property. The king-size bedroom offers cool, understated elegance, while its adjoining balcony begs to have a telescope placed there to take advantage of the bird’s eye vistas.
Capacious walk-in closets and a coral-tiled and whitewashed ensuite master bathroom offers a mesmerising panorama from the corner jacuzzi tub as well as a glass enclosed shower, separate toilet and his and hers’ vanity-with-a-view.
With aesthetics a design priority, the practicalities of Caribbean living have also been taken care of at Serendipity, with hurricane shutters throughout, air-conditioning in the bedrooms and kitchen, solar heating and excellent water storage with pump for house and pool. Security is provided round the clock and the villa has a state of the art alarm system.
A unique property with truly unforgettable charms, Villa Serendipity is spectacular year round and from every angle.
