A fanciful pedestrian gate ushers you through Symbio's lushly-landscaped grounds and into the entry foyer, which is inlaid with a polished stone compass rose. So very sophisticated and elegant, Symbio celebrates superb artistic design and detailed fine-craftsman execution throughout every space of this stunning two-bedroom, fully air-conditioned villa set on two-thirds of an acre.
On the main floor, a beautifully-furnished great room shares space with an open-plan gourmet kitchen and dining area. In the high-ceilinged great room, mobile wood panels are hung on rails so that you may slide them around to cover sections of the glass slider doors to prevent glare while watching TV during the day. Glass sliding pocket doors open completely around the great room to incorporate the adjoining wrap-around covered terrace. More cushioned seating on the terrace overlooks the pool and gardens below, and beyond, azure sea views and fiery tropical sunsets. Angled concrete stairs descend from this terrace to an interim hardwood deck fitted with benches and a picnic table, and continue down to the pool, garden and gym level.
Alongside the great room and terrace is the kitchen, featuring custom cabinetry lined with bar stools and a domed barrel ceiling, polished concrete countertops inlaid with sea glass, and equipped with stainless steel Viking appliances. At one end of the kitchen is a bar/coffee nook, and at the other end, a convenient door opens out to a fully-screened alfresco grill kitchen and wet bar, another comfortable and convivial spot furnished with bar stools at the sleek counter.
Through an archway from the great room and kitchen is the dining area. Pocket glass slider doors fronting one side of the dining room disappear into the wall, opening up the screened grill kitchen and bar just outside as a bonus space for cocktails and grilling.
Down the hallway is a convenient powder room 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 a bay window seat, a spacious desk, light-blocking window treatments which allow you to sleep as late as you wish, and glass slider doors which open to a private covered verandah. A concrete staircase conveniently spirals down from this terrace to the pool and gym level, perfect for a private midnight swim and stargazing. This 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 very private space. Accessed by a contoured staircase ascending near the villa's entrance and completely secluded on Symbio's upper level, this serene suite has a covered breezeway porch (perfect for yoga and massage, or a game of cards) and adjacent, a small step-out balcony which overlooks the pool area. The master suite offers a desk, and from the king bed, an ocean view. The en-suite bath features a double vanity; adjoining is the semi-alfresco rain shower, also partially enclosed by opaque glass block.
Down on Symbio's pool level are gardens and giant boulders providing privacy for sunbathing, swimming and relaxing. The freeform pool has a graduated walk-in entry just like a beach, is chlorine-free and features a fountain. From the pool deck, a wooden walkway leads past an ancient ficus tree to Symbio's well-equipped and air-conditioned gym.
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. Symbio combines both with sublime originality, inspired style and luxurious comfort...five stars!
