You arrive at Encore along a long, inviting drive filled with palms, exotic tropical flowers, trees, and shrubs. Beautiful gardens fill the entry courtyard and completely surround the villa. The Moorish inspired soaring arched entrance showcases the glimpse of brilliant sapphire blue Caribbean Sea and sky as you enter the cool interiors. The turquoise pool, framed by palms and flamboyant, runs the length of the terrace connecting the villa with the view.
Inside the villa, the expansive spaces offer multi areas for relaxing, dining, and cooking. Refined travertine tile floors harmoniously flow throughout. Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors open to the view and the breezes. The spacious, well-equipped kitchen is one of the largest on the island, providing a perfect platform to create inspired gourmet meals. Light woods, granite, and travertine are accented by stainless appliances including two professional sized refrigerators. Wrap-around countertops provide spacious indoor dining overlooking the chef's preparations and the view. The double living room is divided by color; one side is a blend of neutrals and the other blends white plus colour. The style mixes contemporary with a touch of exotic.
The outdoor spaces take full advantage of the view and the gorgeous gardens. Multiple seating areas are scattered around the terraces providing large outdoor dining and comfortable seating opportunities. Exotic plantings are embedded in the terrace. Overhead, under the covered areas, Singapore style fans provide gentle breezes. For an enhanced view, a covered roof terrace creates a poetic perch to view the Caribbean Sea.
The five equal size bedrooms connect off the terrace. Each one has an incredible view. The stylish spa-style bathrooms have sea views plus outdoor showers with private seating. It's a beautiful way to connect with tropical nature. The bedroom decor mixes interesting contemporary lines and textures with exotic touches like teak poster beds, interesting art, and tranquil colours. A sixth garden view bedroom is a recent addition to the property designed and decorated with the same contemporary touches as the original five bedrooms. A nicely equipped gym, with an outdoor shower and sea view, is just off the great room.
You are secluded, yet close to amenities. The fabulous restaurants and food purveyors in Baie Nettle are a few minutes' drive. You are eight minutes to the French capital of Marigot, with its shops, restaurants, markets, and galleries, and 10 minutes to the airport. Grand Case and Philipsburg are 30 minutes away.
