Villa Vista Mare offers magnificent views overlooking scenic Willoughby Bay with its colourful coral reefs making for an idyllic water sports playground. Attractively designed, the villa is built on two levels with three bedrooms/two baths on the main upper floor and a lower unfinished level offering numerous expansion opportunities.
Designed and built in a classically Caribbean style, Villa Vista Mare is surrounded by an expansive, 360 degrees open covered gallery. Shaded, cool and breezy, the area is the perfect place to relax and enjoy tropical days viewing Willoughby Bay. There is plenty of space for entertaining guests, reading your favourite books, al fresco dining under star-filled skies, or simply lounging in the hammock.
The living area features sliding back glass doors integrating the indoor and outdoor living spaces and creating a fabulous entertaining area. The open plan feel is enhanced by the lightly pickled ceilings throughout the main level of the villa.
A spacious, modern open plan kitchen is fully outfitted with a cooking island with gas cooktop and range facing the stunning ocean views. Additional features include stainless steel appliances, polished concrete counters, large double sink, dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave oven, and ample drawers and larder space.
All the three bedrooms lead off the central area and in true Caribbean style, the master is ideally situated to one side of the main lounge with the other two bedrooms and bathroom on the opposite side. The master bedroom has great sea views and has full height sliding doors onto the gallery. A walk-through closet leads to the ensuite bathroom with a full walk-in shower, bidet and a polished concrete vanity top wash basin.
The second double bedroom also leads directly onto the covered gallery overlooking the ocean views and fitted with the four-poster double bed and adequate closet space. A hallway bathroom with shower between the second and third bedrooms also services the main living area. The third bedroom facing the gardens of the villa is fitted with a closet and is currently used as a children’s room and can accommodate twin beds.
The villa’s lower floor was designed by the owners to store their sailboat and water sports equipment, all used to enjoy carefree, sunny days on the pristine waters of Willoughby Bay. This area offers excellent opportunities for some additional bedrooms, a game room, home theatre, or a private rental or guest apartment with private access and driveway. The .49-acre parcel was built with a planned addition of a spacious, yet to be added swimming pool.
Villa Vista Mare is fully serviced and supported with two large freshwater cisterns, a gated private entrance and driveway, a laundry room with a washing machine, wired for cable TV and internet, and a backup propane generator.
The home is a located a mere eight-minute drive from the renowned English Harbour with Historic Nelson’s Dockyard, a World Heritage site and museum. Shops and boutiques, numerous restaurants, a scenic harbour, and lounges and bars for evenings make this a highly desirable, expat community.
