Spectacular property where no expense for quality and luxury has been spared. The Villa Madeleine Greathouse is a magnificent reproduction of an old sugar plantation Greathouse reworked with all the conveniences of the 21st century, three bedrooms, three and a half baths, pool on the crest of the hill that allows for beautiful sea views of both coasts. The drama unfolds from the welcoming arm staircase and continues into the entry hall through the gracious formal bar leading to a very spacious gallery and pool overlooking Buck Island. The master suite is over-sized as is its spa-like bath fronting a lovely garden setting. The walk-in closet is truly roomy. The fully appointed kitchen is terrific, as are the 2 bedrooms and baths upstairs. The Villa Madeleine Greathouse renovation was inspired by the architecture of the traditional West Indian Greathouse of the islands. The current house looks like a renovation but is actually a thoroughly new, modern house with every attention to detail for form and function, yet replicating a classic appearance.
Most of the floors are teak wood. The staircase is West Indian mahogany, the kitchen and master bath are travertine tile. The balconies are all ceramic tile as well as the other bathrooms.
The roof is a high-grade galvanized metal to replicate the traditional look, on top of wood and screwed down.
The house has central air conditioning. In the bar, the soffit hides the very quiet air conditioning condenser system in interlocking panels that unravels to reveal the system so it can be easily serviced.
There is a sophisticated automated lighting system throughout the house which allows one to control the lighting and fans inside and outside from one control.
In the elegant yet comfortable living room there is a full surround sound theater with and all the components hidden from view.
The beautiful English country style kitchen has an amble pantry, many windows for sunlight and a door to the patio and pool area. With lovely granite counter tops, the kitchen cabinetry was custom built by Nancy proctor of Frederiksted.
The generous covered gallery looks north to Buck Island and the Caribbean Sea. The inviting swimming pool is electrically heated. The professionally landscaped gardens have drip irrigation and night lighting.
The large master bedroom suite, which is on the main floor, was added to the original house and has terrific closet space and a wonderful big bathroom with Jacuzzi spa tub and custom windows that over look the garden.
The two guest bedrooms are generously sized, with huge closets and spacious bathrooms. French doors lead to balconies off both bedrooms.
All bedrooms have DISH TV. The property has alarm security, and a gated entry. There is a 30-kilowatt, automated generator, and gas-fired hot water heaters to save electricity.
This one-of-a-kind property is offered fully furnished, with the exception of the artwork, and in beautiful condition.
