The Retreat is a chic, contemporary sanctuary nestled in mature tropical gardens. Award-winning designer Naomi Cleaver was responsible for the attention to detail here, including everything from a dramatically lit glass staircase to a waterfall tumbling into the jacuzzi.
Looking west towards St Kitts, the Caribbean Sea and green-flash sunsets, the inverted living space has been artfully designed. Upstairs, the kitchen and living room ease into each other and out towards a vast upper terrace. And downstairs, in the cooler spaces of the home, there’s a media room, a home office and a gym.
The bedrooms are in the furthest corners of the home, offering privacy and peace. With tripleglazed windows and remote-controlled blackout blinds, these are refuges dedicated to sleep and calm. The master bedroom includes a sunken bath, surrounded on three sides by glass walls that look out onto fan palms, banana trees and ornate birds of paradise flowers.
Elegant furnishings from French and Italian designers are throughout the home. There’s a centralised Mitsubishi air conditioning system, keypad controlled LED lighting, and a Creston Home Automation system with Apple TVs, Sony and Samsung TVs in every room and a wholehouse Sonos sound system that extends to the pool. The camera security system can be monitored and controlled remotely.
The Retreat is also approved for Citizenship by Investment, which is one of the fastest ways to obtain permanent residency. If citizenship is not a requirement, read our Buyer's Guide for detailed information on the purchasing process.
