Atlantis at Cap Estate, St. Lucia - Golf Course View, Pool
Description from the manager
Welcome to Atlantis, a Caribbean villa with a distinct modern flair. Atlantis sits on top of a hill overlooking some of the best views in Saint Lucia. The sloping parkland around the villa is beautifully manicured, with many well established trees and tropical shrubs, low-walled planters and a carefully tended kitchen garden springing into bounty after years of green-fingered care.
The curved driveway leads to a generous parking area, and the impressive but welcoming entrance, with its elegant coral stone staircase framed by an arched portico and stately double doors. The single storey villa’s walls are built from natural local stone, and the arch motif is repeated throughout the exterior and interior, including the stylish but eminently functional solid wood windows whose shape exactly echo the architectural detail. Atlantis is a unique property in many ways, and the villa’s recent clever, high end upgrade has resulted in a crisp, modern look with an historic, old Caribbean feel.
Step inside, and the 8000 square foot home beckons in all directions. The immediate centre of attention is the indoor gated courtyard, with its soothing water feature and deep koi pond open to the blue sky above, a surprisingly Italianate feature in this Saint Lucian family home, throwing light and air throughout the adjacent great room and casual living area.
The living space has two areas: the formal lounge looks onto the villa’s capacious wrap-around verandah and pool deck, through tall, wide French windows which echo the arched style of the entrance. The interior walls are beautiful, textural mixture of coral stone and natural local stone, its silvery grey tones contrasting with the high vaulted, dark stained ceiling, an original feature which was hand-crafted from beautifully finished natural wood. A casual-style TV den lies to the right off the main living space, and the kitchen and formal dining room open up to the left.
From crisp white cabinetry and modern fixtures to granite countertops and state of the art appliances, the family kitchen at Atlantis is spacious enough for casual dining, and impressively appointed for entertaining. It leads to the formal dining room, with its solid wood, refectory style table and seating room for eight to twelve.
Through every arched window of Atlantis there is a breathtaking panorama, and a step through any one of the French windows reveals some of the villa’s extensive views. The outdoor living area is a seamless extension of indoors, with comfortable areas for relaxing and dining, and access to the 60’ infinity pool with its bird’s eye vantage of the hills and golf course below. To the west, the panorama extends from Mount Pimard and Rodney Bay to Pigeon Island, with Martinique sometimes visible on the horizon. To the east, the wraparound verandah peeks towards the Atlantic off Cas En Bas Bay: all around the property, balmy breezes and shady corners keep the indoor and outdoor spaces cool all day long.
Several guest bedrooms are laid out in an interlocking floor plan off the beautiful indoor/outdoor atrium off the courtyard. Cathedral ceilings and lots of arched windows ensure every bedroom is bright and airy. There are 5 bedrooms in total, the master is located to the left of the courtyard and has a queen size bed and an ensuite bathroom. Two more bedrooms, one with a queen bed and another with two double beds share a large Jack and Jill bathroom. To the left of this bedroom is another queen bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and between the two is a cosy tv room, complete with DVD and a small movie selection. The last of the 5 bedrooms has a queen bed and its own bathroom which is located across the hallway.
Atlantis is a unique and impressive property, sprawling and spacious, but with a warm and welcoming family ambiance, and a layout designed for entertaining. Perched on top of its hilltop vantage point, secluded yet private Atlantis boasts a 10 minute drive to most amenities and attractions of Rodney Bay.
