SUGAR HOUSE - CONTEMPORARY VILLA
Villas at Mt. Pleasant, Bequia
|:||Mt. Pleasant, Bequia|
This Sugar House is a luxurious property, nestled within the walled grounds of an ancient sugar mill dating back to the 18th century. It has been designed by Mustique based architect Thomas Dehen and offers spectacular views overlooking the estate’s grounds and the Caribbean Sea.
This unique property features two large and comfortable en-suite bedrooms, combining many historic elements together with modern, contemporary living. The villa features a large custom built mahogany kitchen upon entry, equipped with modern day appliances. As you continue to walk through, it opens up into a large circular open-plan living, dining & entertaining area. The feature high-arched, wooden circular roof is breath-taking. Set in the middle of this area is a large hardwood dining table with seating for 8 guests plus a daybed for reading and afternoon siestas. There is a wonderful blurring of the lines between indoor & outdoor living as the area then moves out into the lush, tropical gardens.
The bedrooms are each furnished with king-sized four-poster beds. Highlights include a sitting area and spacious en-suite bathrooms, featuring contemporary pebble showers, hardwood vanities and glass & marble sinks. One of the showers is a very generous space and has an impressive circular open-air design, but still offers privacy.
An oasis of tranquillity, yet less than a 10-minute drive to the main town of Port Elizabeth, the bars & restaurants of the Belmont Walkway and the calm waters lapping onto the white sands of Princess Margaret & Lower Bay. Take a stroll across your private Mt. Pleasant estate, enjoying the cool breezes & encountering numerous tropical fruit trees, bird species, land turtles & brightly coloured iguanas – feel at one with nature. There are also two neighbouring beaches, Ravine Bay and Hope Bay, which are only a short hike away from the property.
