Retreat House is an ancient colonial property dating back to when the French settled the St. Vincent and The Grenadines chain of islands a few hundred years ago. Not long ago it has been renovated into one of the most magnificent and prominent villas on the island.
The new house has been designed and re-built by one of the most renowned architects around who has extensive experience of work on Bequia’s famous sister island of Mustique. Built to keep the original foundations and walls intact it has been designed to keep a cool and calm atmosphere with a perfect sense of ancient colonial style mixed with a modern touch of simplicity.
The house sits on what is arguably the grandest lot on the Western part of the island. This is due to the fact that it is perched on a cliff overlooking Admiralty Bay, and framed by two of the best beaches on Bequia, namely Princess Margaret and Lower Bay. Whilst the house has over 180 degree views overlooking the sea, the beaches which are only a few footsteps away, are also known to be the best for swimming on the island.
The house has been built with the highest quality materials sourced both locally and internationally. The infinity pool overlooks the entire length of Lower bay and the hardwood gazebo facing Princess Margaret beach is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
The house is comfortably furnished with imported and locally crafted furniture and has wooden floors in all rooms. There is a wide wrap-around tiled terrace on all sides and a pool-facing courtyard, which is great for dancing. The house is a perfect venue for social events of all kinds and can comfortably accommodate a few hundred guests.
Unfortunately, the owner Derek Coates who also owned a large company passed away, hence this beautiful property is back on the market! Derek, a dear friend, has been in touch with us for years before he finally made it to the island. It only took him about 30 - 60 minutes before deciding that the Retreat was the perfect property for him and his family.
If you are a serious client and are looking for a substantial and unique property one can hardly ever find, let us know and we would happily arrange a viewing.
