STB - DANSE5 - One of the finest properties in St. Barth
DANSE is an extraordinary achievement of design and craftsmanship. The exquisite melding of wood and stone throughout this home creates a cool and relaxing atmosphere and combines with the carefully selected furnishings to make Villa DANSE one of the finest properties in St. Barth. Nearly two years of painstaking work by stone cutters and carpenters brought to fruition this extraordinary vision from the New York architectural firm of Barnes and Coy. The entrance to the house leads directly into the main living, dining and kitchen area, whose high ceilings and panoramic view give it an airy, loft-like feel. To the west, an entire wall of glass slides out of sight, opening the space to the large terrace, infinity pool, and broad vista over the bays of Lorient and St. Jean, the Atlantic and St. Maarten visible in the distance. A teak deck beneath a large canvas awning offers plentiful seating for relaxing in the shade or dining outdoors. Chaises for sunning are cooled by an automatic misting system. A professional Fisher and Paykel grill makes barbecuing a breeze. Not far from the terrace is a dramatically designed, nautilus shaped bathroom with a rain head shower. A lower terrace beyond the pool provides a secluded space for sunning or just relaxing to the soothing sound of the black stone fountain. The view from here is simply stunning, with only an expanse of brilliant bougainvillea blossoms between you and the vision of the blue Caribbean water. Villa DANSE´S first three bedrooms, located on the property's pool level are all roughly equal in size and are exceptionally well-furnished in dark hardwoods and chocolate-hued leather. The first bedroom offers views to the east and south, and has a glass-tiled ensuite bath, generous closet space, and a private deck with chaises and an outdoor shower. The second and third bedrooms also have their own secluded, private outdoor spaces, as well as ensuite baths. The villa's fourth and fifth bedrooms are located on a lower level, and boast their own private living and entertainment area, gym, massage room and private ensuite baths. The open kitchen will let aspiring chefs flex their culinary muscle without being antisocial. Multiple SubZero refrigerators, a Viking range top and Delonghi oven are just a few of the top-quality amenities arranged both discretely and conveniently to make kitchen both pleasure to use and pleasure to look at. The dining area offers elegant seating for eight at a lacquered, dark wood table. Plush, inviting sofas in the living area seat ten. A home office in a loft space above the living and dining area provides a large and comfortable work space for taking calls or handling email and faxes. This luxurious five bedroom villa allows you to compare each day's sunrise to its sunset, a feature that most houses, penthouses or even palaces don't offer. Stand on the eastern side of the house in the early mornings, and you'll capture the panorama of the rising sun. Everywhere you turn you will have a spectacular view all day and night. You can swim in the 70-foot solar heated infinity pool, enjoy the shopping of St. Barts, and sit in comfort on the highest peak of Pointe Milou. As the day winds down, you stroll to the west, recall the sights you soaked in as you sipped your morning coffee and decide if the sunset is better than the first light of day. The main view is directed outward, toward the ocean, which creates a limitless number of combinations. To cement the garden as a bona fide extension of the villa, there are stairs and pathways that run alongside a stone foundation with romantic lighting from the patio to the all levels. This setting allows for 270 degrees of visual inspiration as there are unobstructed views north, east, and west. Every room is filled with customized solutions to create that balanced approach to vacation living including a true gourmet kitchen complete with an array of appliances and features. * 5.00% Tax (not included in rates) - 10.00% Service Charge (not included in rates) - US $500.00 Security Deposit BED DISTRIBUTION: K K K K K
