At the crest of the hill that tops the exclusive Pointe Milou neighborhood, Villa Seaweed expresses itself in unique and thoughtful designs in every way possible: landscaping, architecture and decor. The path to the house is flanked by a sea of fountain plants and pine hedges reminiscent of a home in the Hamptons--only the giant blue agave beside the house reminds you that this is the Caribbean. Once inside, you are greeted by the welcoming sight of the three-tier basin and heated pool all year around, a teak sun deck amid a jumble of purple bougainvillea blossoms, and a wide green lawn. The dramatic view west across the sea to the island of St. Maarten makes this the perfect vantage point for sunsets.
The main area of the house is cleverly divided into living, dining and kitchen spaces by partitions rather than full walls, giving it an open and flowing feel. The living area boasts white sofas seating nine and a TV and BOSE sound system. The indoor dining table seats ten comfortably, while the kitchen makes entertaining easy, with a De Dietrich Haloring stove and Siemens oven and dishwasher. Every space opens directly to the terrace, which offers two additional outdoor dining areas, one with a built-in gas grill and wet bar.
A peaceful breezeway accented by a curving wall separates the living area from the two bedrooms. Koi ponds, swaying reeds and rock gardens add to the feeling of serenity. The bedrooms are equally spacious and well-appointed, with king beds, en-suite baths with rain head showers and dual vanities, and private deck areas looking east out over the Atlantic.
