Villa Jade was built to ensure privacy, leverage spectacular views, and incorporate an abundance of WOW features to enjoy with family and friends.
Guests arrive at a wooden bridge spanning a lily pond and providing entrance to a small elegant foyer graced by a sitting Buddha. A moon-shaped etched glass sliding door opens to reveal an expansive air-conditioned living area, the infinity pool running the length of the villa, and a stunning view of Marigot Bay. And yes, the pool is heated. The contemporary architectural design provides a perfect setting for the Asian décor incorporating antiques, sepia-toned photos, and objects d’art eclectically blended with modern pieces.
The center of the open floor plan is dance-hall size with a seating area configured for cocktails, conversation, and TV viewing at one end. A bar seating eight defines the kitchen at the other end. Glossy and sleek, it is equipped for a professional chef and includes every culinary amenity. Its pantry provides a behind-the-scenes prep space and a walk-in cold room.
The outdoor living space includes a long portico shading poolside seating and dining areas. There are upholstered chaise lounges for sun-seekers, a Jacuzzi, and a hammock – all looking out to the sea.
Jade has eight bedrooms in all, with five housed in separate pavilions and a three-bedroom family wing in the main house. The handsome Asian-themed master suite is king-sized, and king bedded with a sitting area and a dressing room lined with closets. Its en suite bath has a wealth of special features, double-sized indoor and showers, and a private WC with a bidet. Glass sliders open to a gazebo with a family-size day bed. There are two children’s bedrooms, each with a queen bed; one opens to a "kids section" of the deck and the other to a small enclosed play area. They share a bath.
Each of the three additional master suites (king beds) is privately housed in a separate pavilion with a deck overlooking the Bay. Each is differently and exquisitely decorated, chic and modern yet, keeping with the Zen motif. There’s a "Chinese Room" incorporating abacuses into the design and the photos in the "Japan Room" provide a window into the world of geishas. Closet space is plentiful, and the en suite baths have double vanities and outside showers with sea views. Desks, TVs, and sound systems make them true retreats. There are two lower-level bungalows; one with an en suite bedroom (king –convertible to twins) is suitable for staff.
The other houses a spacious studio-style suite, down a few levels from the main house, it is nicely private. It has a king bed, a well-appointed bath, and a living area for relaxing and TV viewing. A built-in credenza contains a wet bar and mini-fridge. The furnished sea-facing verandah is a special bonus.
Jade’s WOW features include an air-conditioned gym equipped with multiple exercise machines, free weights, and yoga paraphernalia. Best for last, a home cinema decorated with Japanese lanterns. Seven lounge chairs are tiered theater-style for better viewing of the giant screen. A database of 4000 movies is available for viewing in the cinema and the bedrooms.
Villa Jade is in St. Barth Properties’ Grand Cru collection representing the island’s most distinctive villas. Bonus services include a breakfast of fresh fruit and French pastries delivered each morning, soft drinks, evening turndown services, and daily maid service inclusive of Sundays and holidays.
