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 triple glazed 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.
