Wings is a very new four bedroom property tucked high in the hills of St Jean, just short distance to the beaches and some of the finest restaurants and shops. The name comes from the passion of its owner for the boat.
With the two galvanized steel wings that anchor the structures, Villa Wings appears to be almost perched and ready for a flight over the beautiful island of St Bart's. But the first thing that strikes you, is the dramatic contrast provided by the abrupt precipice at the edge of the property, which draws the the eye towards the bay of St Jean, and the ocean beyond.
The second thing is the elegant harmony between the decisively modern selection of spaces, materials and forms and the timelessness of the nature that merges with the building, creating a gentle and restful ambiance. The design of the the property reflects the concept of this sloped hillside by being set out on three levels.
You enter Villa Wings by crossing a verdant atrium which leads to an expansive wooden deck on the main level, where you find a spectacular dining table that is a suspended extension of the kitchen workbench on the left. This is next to an infinity heated pool whose perpendicular position opens the space up to the front facing the horizon. To the left is a set of stairs, bordered by a wall of water gently flowing from the pool, leading to the lower level and garden.
The main living room is located just beneath the largest wing, and is an open-airy great room that flows directly into the terrace, and the mesmerizing views. A second Living room serves also as a fully equipped Home cinema room, and completely air-conditioned. A sleek and spacious kitchen, equipped for a gourmet cook is adjacent to the interior dining room and just steps from the covered dining terrace.
