This unique island retreat nestles on 1.29 acres of prime waterfront real estate in Water Point. The modernist villa blends outdoor living within a park-like setting. Expansive covered verandahs are bordered by tiered pools bathed by gentle trade-winds. Designed to maximize natural light and ventilation, this design offers different panoramas from each of the 3 privately arranged bedroom suites.

A swimming platform affords access to the protected water for world-class snorkeling, while a five acre private beach parcel is just steps away. 

Designed by the architect who developed Water Point Estates, and built to the highest standards, the house has been carefully sited to take full advantage of the prevailing trade winds while offering full protection from the elements. Encompassing breathtaking views of St John, Christmas Cove and French Cap, the homes offers complete privacy and security in a dramatic setting, unmatched anywhere on the island.

Conceived in a modernist "island" style with a generous terrace, innovative swimming pool, deep loggia, roof overhangs, pergola and nine pairs of 8' louvered doors that fold back against the exterior walls, the home has an open floor plan that is seamlessly integrated into a strikingly beautiful natural setting. The feeling is one of elegant simplicity, with every detail carefully considered for its visual appeal. Conforming to the contours of the home's natural surroundings, living spaces are all on one level. 

The main house features a large living room and kitchen, master bedroom, luxury bathroom with tub and shower, and walk-in closets. A small laundry, larder and desk are located behind the kitchen. The Guest Wing has its own living room and kitchen, and is built around an interior courtyard. It features 2 bedrooms suites and generous closet space. The house also includes a large artist's studio that can be easily converted into a family room, extra bedroom or used as intended, a garage. Ample storage is provided by separate pool pump and generator rooms underneath the pool terrace.

For ease of maintenance, hardiness and aesthetics, landscaping emphasizes native plants, supplemented with Palms, trees, plants and cactus that thrive in local soils and require minimum water. Walking around the property, one is struck by the feeling of being in a nature park, with dramatic views of the ocean, surrounding islands and rugged rock formations cascading into the sea.
Among the most special features of the property are the water-side pergola and swimming platform accessed by a concrete path with hand rail and stairs that descend in a winding configuration to the sea. For easy access, a gentle sloping stainless steel ladder is affixed to the swimming platform. At this point of entry, the water is 7' deep, and offers wonderful snorkeling along the leeward side of Water Point.
