Bois Rouge Villa was built in 2006 on the south side of Marigot Bay. Marigot Bay is known as one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. Bois Rouge sits above the inner bay looking over the visiting super yachts and out to the Caribbean Sea, undoubtedly one of the best views in Marigot Bay. It is private, peaceful and secluded and within an easy 10 minute walk on a good road down to the Marina Village, with its local cabanas and gift shops, coffee shop, local bank, minimarket, spa, the 5 star Discovery Hotel and other local bars and restaurants. The house is built on the top of the plot, surrounded by lush tropical flowers and trees, and mixes the Caribbean influence of wide verandas, dark wood floors and ceiling fans with an elegant old English style of comfortable sofas, antique furniture and colourful rugs. Table lamps provide soft lighting to complement the warm tropical nights and an eclectic selection of original paintings adds to the ambience. 5 steps lead from the ground floor veranda down to the lower deck and pool and more steps descend to the remainder of the plot which is laid to grass with further fruit trees. The construction is block and cement exterior painted in a typical sunny Caribbean colour and white painted windows and doors, with hardwood verandas and internal floors (tiles in the bathrooms) and internal louvre doors. THE GROUND FLOOR is open plan with 12’ high wood ceiling and comprises: Entrance area from the front door with bookshelves to one side, sitting area with 54” flat screen TV, dining area, kitchen, study/bedroom 4 with ensuite and powder room. The kitchen is designed in Smallbone style with cream painted wall and floor cupboards, an island with further cupboards and drawers and beautiful granite worktops. Appliances include double stainless steel sink, microwave, dishwasher, under counter fridge and Smeg stainless steel gas 4 burner/electric double oven cooker. From the kitchen is access to the integral garage whilst to the left is a shelved pantry providing plentiful storage and to the right is the utility room with ironing area, washtub and tiled surface with shelving and washing machine under, broom cupboard and a large family fridge/freezer. A door opens onto the veranda and a Permasteel gas barbecue. Four sets of double French doors on two sides open onto the wide, wrap around veranda with outdoor seating and dining areas. A fifth set of double French doors open into the downstairs study/bedroom. THE FIRST FLOOR comprises of three double bedrooms and two bathrooms and is accessed by an open, wood staircase ascending in front of a top to bottom glass window which, together with the glass French doors and high ceiling, allows for maximum light. The master bedroom with a SuperKING BED, incorporates a walk-in wardrobe and dressing/study area, with a window overlooking the mountains inland. An en-suite with Jacuzzi bath, separate shower and twin basins set in a stone countertop completes the very spacious and comfortable bedroom. Two sets of double glass French doors open onto the upper deck with spectacular views over the bay and out to sea. There are two further double bedrooms, both with French doors onto the upper deck, excellent wardrobe and storage space, which share a large bathroom with bath, shower over and twin basins. All French doors and windows have solid wood shutters which can be closed for extra security and the house is alarmed.
