Located in the gated residential community of Ocean Breeze, just outside of Rodney Bay is this spacious, tastefully furnished 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom villa overlooking lush gardens, a crystal clear pool, and countryside vistas. Villa Tegan is a well-appointed home designed on 2 storeys with mezzanine level and set in the middle of an ample sized hillside lot. Private access is off the Ocean Breeze estate road, and up a concrete drive through palm trees and hedges, giving a sense of arrival and privacy.
The property is not fenced but clearly demarcated by the foliage planted along the perimeter of the house. A garage with turning bay marks the top of the drive, with extra parking for several vehicles on the road to the front of the villa. The 400 square foot pool with paved concrete deck, and hidden by tropical plants is a central feature of the property’s landscape.
On the ground floor a covered entrance porch opens into an entrance vestibule leading to the cloakroom/utility and to the open plan living and dining area. The living area is beautifully furnished with a mix of contemporary furniture, whilst the formal dining area has an extendable solid wood dining table with foldaway central leaf, matching dresser set into the window bay and 6 chairs. Facing east the living room flows seamlessly into a semi-enclosed patio, which overlooks the pool and countryside views. This external living space is characterised by more traditional style rattan furniture with colourful decor and a round teak dining table with 6 teak chairs, adding tropical flair to the home. Toward the west, one has direct access through the study area, to the back garden.
The impressive yet functional modern well equipped open plan kitchen boasts striking granite counter tops with modern appliances and an extensive range of floor and wall cabinets which provide excellent storage space. Double stainless steel sinks are present, directly below a large window; allowing lots of light and breeze into the kitchen. The jet-black double-door fridge/freezer, electric cooker, and microwave complement the counter-top theme perfectly. The kitchen also includes a dishwasher, plus a ceiling fan for additional cooling. A two-seater breakfast bar with wooden chairs complete this space perfectly.
The powder room, with marble topped vanity, conveniently located on the ground floor is combined with a laundry that comes complete with a washer and useful shelving. There is also a secure tool storage shed under the house, plus additional storage in the garage.
From the main living area, one moves on to the mezzanine level of the home, via an attractive short wooden staircase. The bright elegantly furnished Master bedroom is the main feature on this level. It boasts plenty of built-in closet storage and high ceilings. This spacious room easily accommodates a king sized bed, matching side tables, dresser unit and extra furniture pieces.
Moving across the space, one is naturally drawn to the private balcony which enjoys views across lush mountains. A large window and double doors allow natural light and ventilation into the room making this a comfortable retreat. An en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower and marble topped vanity adds the finishing touch to this room.
Located on the 1st floor of the villa, via another short flight of stairs are two double bedrooms, each fitting either a queen sized or twin beds. They both boast double doors and windows that allow streams of light and cooling country breezes into the space.
To further enjoy the out-door living of Villa Tegan, both upstairs bedrooms access a large terrace that gives full vantage of the natural landscape and nightlights of the neighboring communities in the distance. The bedrooms have built in closets, and share a bathroom, easily reached via a spacious landing. This guest bathroom is equipped with bath with shower over, and pedestal wash basin.
Both of the aforementioned bedrooms are complete with ceiling fans and AC units, adding to the comfortable character of the house.
Altogether this is a complete family home which is perfect for entertaining guests; and may also generate income through villa rentals. The house incorporates a number of extra features, such as an alarm system, dual voltage electricity, 1200 gallon water tank, solar water heater, security bars for the doors, and full AC; all within a gated setting. The overall value of this property is complemented by the most reasonable HOA fees among comparable developments.
The property is a mere 10 minutes drive to the amenities of Rodney Bay and 30 minutes from the airport and city of Castries. However, with its calming nature and fantastic scenery, it is an ideal get-away retreat.
Price includes all of the furniture and appliances.
