10- minute drive to Road Town, this villa is set atop a scenic promontory. MAT RHU
Description from the manager
Conveniently located just a 10-minute drive to Road Town to the west and a 10-minute drive to the airport to the east, villa MAT RHU is set on a scenic promontory on a nearly two acre private estate with spellbinding views of Paraquita and Brandywine Bays and the Sir Francis Drake Channel. This impressive enclave is tucked behind a gate, which opens to the cobblestone driveway to villa MAT RHU‘s dramatic entrance. The entrance graced by a colonnade of towering royal palms, filigreed gazebo, and a flagstone walkway, threads through tropical gardens and Koi ponds. 180-degree views of the Caribbean Sea dotted with green islets and cays beyond.
Double doors open into a large, airy foyer with a lush atrium garden of torch ginger and ferns. An inviting sitting area faces the ocean, with French doors accessing the terrace, outdoor dining area and pool just outside. The foyer area also has a powder room done in Caribbean Blue. To the left is the estate's air-conditioned drawing room, where an eclectic mix of antiques and contemporary furnishings combine serene elegance and comfort and where the spectacular sea view fills arched windows above cushioned window seats.
The formal dining room is just steps away. An impressive dome set into the ceiling and inlaid with exotic woods canopies the grand Regency-style dining table, an objet d’art itself with wood inlays, brass stringing and quatrefoils, seating up to 16. Large windowed doors open out to terraces, a reflecting pool, and gardens on three sides. Adjacent are the kitchen, modest but efficiently laid-out, the well-equipped kitchen offers a large Sub-Zero fridge, double ovens and more, just perfect when cooking for a large group.
Pathways of large flat stepping-stones span a shallow Koi pond dotted with water lilies with a pergola overhead, leads to the bedroom suites. All of the bedrooms are beautifully decorated with soothing tropical colors which invite you to relax.
The lily pond's stepping-stones lead on past a lion's head fountain to villa MAT RHU’s air-conditioned office and well-stocked library, where two desks let you enjoy the sublime vistas if you have to work a bit on vacation.
The lily pond's stone bridge leads off to a hallway and to the charming living room artfully adorned with hand painted shutters and whimsical sofas and chairs dressed in relaxing pastel colors.
From the main corridor, an exterior staircase curves down to the Game Room, a breezeway with a full-sized pool table and just outside, a patio and a graveled bocce ball court. The laundry room is also located on this level.
