DescriptionFeatures & Amenities

The unique and magnificent design of Hillside Retreat, also known as Xanadu, was inspired by the famous doomed City of pleasure called Xanadu created by the Mongol ruler Kubla Khan in China during the 20th century. This fascinating study in concrete and stonework engineering has undergone extensive renovation by the current owners after they purchased Xanadu in 2011. When they aren't enjoying it during long winter stays, it is succesful in attracting short term holiday rentals. It is surrounded by over 1 acre of gardens that slope gently away from the house and are home to coconut palms and tropical plants. The domes of the villa dominate the hillside on St. Lucia's northern tip in the exclusive residential area of the old sugar plantation of Cap Estate. The high south west facing terraces provide beautiful views of Pigeon Island, the Caribbean Sea & the island of Martinique. The huge circular domed living area is the center piece of the villa and its five large bi-fold doors open to a circular terrace. The completely circular area with its compass rose floor and non-slip river stone has a unique atmosphere and gives access to the swimming pool with its bar stools partly inside the dome. The dome leads to the curved kitchen area with completely modern equipment, corian work surfaces and double sink. The three spacious bedroom suites, each with nautically themed names, are arranged round the pool terrace, all with their own private separate access direct from the terrace. All have modern bathrooms and wonderful views of the ocean & gardens. The master bedroom known as "Captain's Quarter" has an impressive privte balcony and ensuite bathroom finished to a high standard with double vanity basins, and a walk-in shower. There is a separate maid's room below the house, a garage and a 40,000 gallon cistern below the living room which stores rain water collected from the concrete roof of the home. This is an exceptional property offering excellent value for money on the holiday market. Whether it be a family home or an investment property, one thing is for sure, you'll never want to leave this Hillside Retreat.
