Sophisticated and elegant, this villa celebrates the craftsman. MAV SYM
A fanciful pedestrian gate ushers you through MAV SYM, also known as Symbio's, lushly-landscaped grounds and into the entry foyer, which is inlaid with a polished stone compass rose. So very sophisticated and elegant, MAV SYM celebrates artistic design and fine-craftsman execution throughout this stunning two-bedroom, fully air-conditioned villa.
In the high-ceilinged Great Room, handsome sliding wood panels cover the glass sliders to prevent glare while watching the large flat-screen satellite TV. The sofas easily rotate so you can either face the TV or enjoy the view! The sliders open to the wrap-around covered terrace, furnished with a large modular sofa. More cushioned seating on the terrace overlooks the pool below, and in the distance, the azure sea and sunsets. Stairs descend from the terrace to a hardwood deck fitted with benches and a picnic table, and continue down to the pool, garden and gym level.
Alongside the Great Room is a magnificent kitchen, featuring custom cabinetry lined with bar stools and a domed barrel ceiling. The counters are polished concrete countertops inlaid with sea glass, and the kitchen is equipped with stainless steel Viking appliances. At one end of the kitchen is a bar/coffee nook, and at the other end, a door opens out to the fully-screened alfresco grill kitchen and wet bar.
Through an archway is the dining area. This alluring room boasts curved handcrafted Ipe-wood cabinetry and a large glass dining table with seating for six. Pocket glass slider doors, open up to the screened grill kitchen and bar.
Down the hallway is a powder room with a very unique door - original art sandwiched between glass and hardwood - and a chef's pantry with a large Viking refrigerator and workspace.
Symbio's air-conditioned queen guest suite is at the far end of the corridor, a restful retreat with bay window seat, spacious desk, light-blocking window treatments, and glass slider doors which open to a private covered verandah hung with pull-draperies for privacy. A concrete staircase spirals down from this terrace to the pool and gym level. The suite's bathroom features a double vanity and an alfresco rain shower, sheltered by an arc of curved glass blocks.
The air-conditioned king master suite is an alluring and private space, showcasing superb design. Accessed by a contoured staircase, this serene suite has a covered breezeway porch and a small step-out balcony which overlooks the pool area. The master suite offers a desk and an ocean view from the bed. The ensuite bath features a double vanity. For privacy, the WC and the semi-alfresco rain shower, are partially enclosed by opaque glass blocks.
On the pool level are gardens and giant boulders providing privacy for sunbathing, swimming and relaxing. Sun umbrellas and awnings provide shady oases. The freeform pool has a graduated walk-in entry just like a beach, is chlorine-free and features a fountain. A wooden walkway from the pool deck leads to the well-equipped and air-conditioned gym, which boasts a covered patio with cushioned seating.
Creatively constructed within and around Virgin Gorda's renowned smooth granite boulders, MAV SYM offers a bounty of artistic custom-designed features. Arched contours and domes create a soothing serpentine flow of organic color, enhanced by warm exotic woods, peaked wood-beamed and bamboo-lined ceilings, contemporary designer furnishings, lighting by Murano and Aqua Creations and an eclectic collection of art ranging from original paintings to carved African and ethnic sculpture. Every corner, every space and every detail were carefully laid out and ingeniously accomplished in grand style, resulting in a harmonious, elegant, yet cozy home.
