The British West-Indies masterpiece thoughtfully designed and built to the most exacting standards is idyllically placed on an exceptionally large site framed by massive mahogany trees that create a park-like setting just two blocks from the beach. A curved driveway of clay brick pavers leads to the porte-cochere and main residence defined by a black slate roof, cypress corbels and brackets, and mahogany shutters, windows, and doors. Eighteen natural-gas lamps adorn every elevation of the home with a soft amber hue. Highlights of the 7,810-square-foot main residence include a convertible great room with soaring beamed ceilings and inviting bar flanked by a walk-in wine room, a chef’s kitchen with hand-forged steel hood and single-slab granite counter tops, a firelit pavilion room that can easily convert between an open-air mode and an enclosed room through walls of floor-to-ceiling glass that pocket into the walls, and, overlooking the pool, the signature spa room—complete with sauna and steam room. The sumptuous master suite offers a spa/bath with French doors that open to an elegant garden bath with shower. The “tower suite,” one of four additional ensuite bedrooms, is perched among the treetops with three walls of windows creating a relaxing haven. Outdoors, the elaborate pool area features a verdant lawn and elements of water flowing through long runnels, fountains, and cascading edges, finished with glass tile that appears to connect the main house with the self-sufficient poolside cabana/guesthouse. The three-bay collector’s garage is an automobile enthusiast’s dream.
