Villa de Palmas was designed by an architectural firm that specializes in Mediterranean/Caribbean style homes with the high-end client in mind. This eco-friendly, net-zero-carbon-footprint solar-powered estate occupies nearly 2.5 acres on a very secluded pink sand beach and is situated on one of the highest points in the area with the main home commanding a 360-degree view of the lush tropical foliage and the azure seascape.
The main home built in 1996 is distinctively perched high on a hill with tasteful entry monuments that establish your arrival from the private road followed by low decorative walls as you enter the property’s interior circular driveway. Along the way, is an earth-friendly solar farm conspicuously nestled in a small valley of sorts alongside one of the estate’s underground water sources which provides all the electrical needs for the entire estate. In the center of the driveway is a pineapple fountain and pond adding to the tropical elegance.
The estate is comprised of three very private homes that uniquely adorn the landscape forming almost a crescent shape as you meander down toward the water. Being the largest and most prominent structure, the main home is the centerpiece and is located at the pinnacle of the property, while the smaller cottage built in 2000 sits just to the southeast of the main home and the pool home sits almost directly east overlooking the stunning Atlantic Ocean. The homes have fully appointed rooms affording magnificent panoramic views and are brilliantly designed to capture the gentle trade winds that bless the island.
All three residences feature fully equipped modern kitchens, dining and entertainment areas, and loggias. On the grounds of the property, you’ll find a functional pergola with a stone dining table, bar, and barbecue combination patio for grilling. As you make your way to the oceanfront, there are two outdoor dining tables one of which is large enough to seat between eight and 12 people that overlooks the pool and looks out over the ocean from about 40 feet above. There are four separate lounge areas and a large covered wraparound loggia perfect for sunrise coffee and sunset happy hours.
