Property Description

Perched 500 feet on a hillside in the gated enclave of Upper Peter bay is an elegant sanctuary in a mesmerizing setting. Villa Carlota was lovingly constructed by a family whose dream was to create a stylish residence adorned with art and antiques collected from their extensive world travels. Luxurious Villa Carlota offers five large air conditioned bedroom/bath suites in three pavilions. Through an electronic gate and from the driveway courtyard, a native stone entryway welcomes you; a graceful coral stone staircase curves down to the expansive terrace where an Italian baroque lion's head fountain spouts a bubbling welcome. A second Italian marble fountain gurgles at the pool's edge, a large infinity-edge pool which blends into the magnificent 180-degree view of Peter Bay below and the Caribbean Sea beyond, a vista dotted with the islets and cays of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. All of the perfect National Park beaches, such as Trunk and Cinnamon Bays, are less than a ten minute easy drive from Villa Carlota.

The villa's main pavilion, centrally air-conditioned with adjustable controls, features a spacious Great Room (the "India Room") which incorporates a large gourmet kitchen done with a cypress ceiling, Brazilian granite, custom mahogany cabinetry, and bordered by a long counter top with stools. Adjacent is the dining area where an 18th century Balinese teak monastery door serves as the dining table; a convenient powder room is right around the corner. On the other side of the Great Room is the living area, set with comfortable sofas, chairs and a media center with a 50" satellite TV, a BOSE sound system, and extensive movie and music collections for your enjoyment. Louvered and screened mahogany doors open from the living area to the dramatic sweep of the deep covered veranda which overlooks the majesty of turquoise ocean views, emerald islands and blue sky. A large table on this veranda and artful lighting invite alfresco dining with a view. From the Great Room, an elegant curved staircase leads to the oversize second-level master suite and home office. This grand king master suite features a cathedral ceiling with Raffles East India fans, mahogany wood flooring, custom-made ceramic light fixtures designed by a local artist, and a Ralph Lauren four-poster bed. A large air conditioned walk-in closet is adjacent. Mahogany doors open to a pergola'ed veranda on the ocean side of the pavilion, furnished with chaise lounges and looking out over the verdant National Park lands and the sea. The en suite marble bath provides separate his-and her sinks linked by a massive wall-to-wall mirror, a Jacuzzi bathtub, and a separate glass-and-marble shower with native stone accents. Just outside the master bath is Villa Carlota's roofed hot tub pavilion with a coral stone floor. Although the spa pavilion is off the master suite, anyone may access the hot tub from the driveway courtyard or from the Great Room with a key. Continuing up the winding staircase from the master suite level to Villa Carlota's third level, a second bedroom/bath suite, this one with a four-poster queen bed awaits; the views from this suite's windows are spectacular.

Back at the terrace and pool just outside the main pavilion, a green 'bamboo' marble wet bar awaits with mini-fridge and ice maker ready for poolside libations and evening cocktails. Behind the wall with the lion's head fountain is a stainless steel professional gas rotisserie grill built into a stone grilling area, which easily connects to kitchen and dining area via a rear hallway. The pool is sublime, reigning over an incredible long-distance panorama, and at day's end, a colorful swirl of tropical sunsets. Villa Carlota's second pavilion is on the other side of the pool terrace, offering two centrally-air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suites on two levels for excellent privacy. Each suite features a romantic four-poster bed with Vera Wang mattresses, a Chinese antique armoire, satellite TV, and a private covered balcony just outside (the upper suite has both a step-out balcony and a pergola'ed veranda). Both suites' baths are done in Italian rojo alicante marble and hand-crafted cabinetry, each boasts a luxuriant overhead rain shower plus three body-massage jets in the wall. From the lower suite's patio, a secreted curve of three steps takes you right into the pool. On the lower level of this pavilion is the laundry room with two washers and two dryers; this area has a private service entrance so that the housekeepers may enter the house from the driveway courtyard without coming through the villa's main entry. A small exercise room adjoins the second pavilion, screened to let the tradewinds in.

The driveway courtyard has ample parking and turning space for three cars, and an outside shower for after-beach rinse-offs. Across this courtyard is the charming Cottage Suite, nicely secluded from the rest of the property. The air-conditioned cottage suite is distinguished by cool travertine tile, a living area with a balcony overlooking the main villa, a full bath, a small kitchen with a covered patio for alfresco meals, and on its upper level, a king (or two-twin) bedroom with a full bath, a large veranda off to its side, a step-out balcony in front, and an en suite bath. Villa Carlota artfully captures five-star grandeur and magic with its fanciful castle turret, French terracotta tile roof, and fine finishes inside and out - be sure to admire the unique mahogany doors and windows, which are clad in bronze outside to match the bronze railings, and the harmonious use of Italian marble, native shell- and stonework and exotic woods throughout. Overindulge yourself at this beautifully-rendered masterpiece, sitting above it all on its green hillside, surveying the expanse of cerulean sea and sky.
