Villa Tropicale in Almond Grove on island of Sint Maarten / Saint Martin in the Caribbean

This is an opportunity to buy a stunning property with spectacular views overlooking the beautiful Simpson Bay Lagoon and Caribbean Sea, set in a prime location in a cul-de-sac in the quiet, much sought after, residential gated community of Almond Grove in Cole Bay – located on the western side (leeward side) of St. Maarten.

Only a few minutes drive away from several beautiful white sand beaches, all amenities, restaurants, shops, casinos, nightlife etc. It’s just a short drive to the pretty town of Marigot on the French side of St Martin, and to Philipsburg, the capital of the Dutch side with its lovely boardwalk lined with bars and restaurants.

It is an exceptional property, the upper main part of the residence is made with beautiful Brazilian hardwood with high ceilings and many doors and windows for ‘open air’ living. It is specifically designed to keep cool naturally without having to live behind closed doors in air conditioning.

The 4,520 sq. ft villa is a two storey home on a fenced 10,290 sq. ft property with a tropical mature, easily maintained surrounding garden, two separate private driveways and parking for up to 5 cars

Approaching the main residence through the covered main entrance and hall the property opens up into a beautifully appointed spacious living room with dining room area, and a spacious open fully equipped kitchen with a center island, creating an excellent space for dining and entertaining guests. Several doors lead out to the travertine tiled patio with the swimming pool and the stunning views of the lagoon and the Caribbean Sea.

On the other side of the hall is the guest bathroom and across from it lies the master bedroom. This is a very large room. The ceiling features a beautiful beam structure. It has its own access to the patio and ample space for a desk looking out onto the tree tops.

Its ensuite bathroom opens out onto its own private outdoor patio.

There are an additional two good sized bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and skylights in the ceilings, located by the Swimming pool, and private from the master bedroom area.

Every room opens onto the large surrounding patio – and all have the stunning views of the lagoon and the Caribbean Sea.  The patio is a special place to sit (with a glass of wine) and watch the sunset every evening. The trees in the garden attract lots of beautiful humming birds, sugarbirds and ground doves.

The swimming pool has a swim-jet for exercise, and facing the ocean you can sit on its seat while enjoying a massage by its jacuzzi blowers. For a family with small children, the swimming pool can be easily secured with existing rails.

The extensive ground floor houses a self-contained studio apartment, and another separate guest bedroom ensuite which could easily be linked to enlarge the studio into a 1 bedroom apartment if the buyer so wishes. It is accessed externally from the main residence, yet also comes with its own private entrance and separate parking area at the lower end of the property. Ideal for rental income, or for guests who wish self catering and privacy. There is also a large open basement area with much further development potential including plenty of storage facility.

There is a 11,000 gallon water cistern, so access to your own private fresh water supply – as well as a connection to the municipal water supply.

There’s solar water heater for the property’s hot water, and also for heating the swimming pool.

The owners have recently installed the ultimate quality protection shutters which operate both electrically and manually.

There are 24hr security guards at entrance, and the house has a monitored security alarm system

Monthly homeowner fees are $100 – covers common grounds, roads, security guards, garbage.

Land Lease currently $955 /year

Structure: Ground floor is Concrete – contains 3rd bedroom,  and the studio apartment, storage and lots of open space which can be turned into additional living space or a larger apartment if desired. Floors are tiled.

The main residence is Brazilian Hardwood – as strong as, if not stronger, than concrete. It is more hurricane proof ( went through hurricane Luis in 1995 without any major damage), and is termite proof (toxic to them). One cannot hammer in  nails but have to use a drill.

Floors are concrete with terracotta tiles inside and travertine tiles outside on the deck.

Located on a hill with beautiful lagoon and ocean views, generally with a nice cooling breeze. Very quiet and private – it is at the end of the road so no passing traffic other than 1 neighbor’s single tenant.

This is a ‘must see’ property – for a beautiful permanent home, to visit for holidays with family and friends and/or for rental income.
