Amazing North Shore Vistas Abound at Villa Lantano
A native stone gazebo offers shade while soaking in the breezes and stunning views of North Shore, above, at Villa Lantano.
Close your eyes and picture an expanse of perfectly azure water stretching across the horizon. The alabaster sands of the North Shore beaches and off-shore cays dot the seascape. A lounge chair perched under a native stone gazebo calls your name as a crystal clear pool sparkles nearby and an ice cold drink helps stave off the heat from the tropical sun.
Open your eyes and take in the very real and amazing views from the expansive deck of the most competitively priced villa in the exclusive enclave of Upper Peter Bay, Villa Lantano.
A quiet, gated community on North Shore Road amid the protected and pristine V.I. National Park, Upper Peter Bay matches the luxury of well-known Peter Bay, but adds elevation, making the views just that much better.
The five bedroom, five and a half bathroom Villa Lantano was recently reduced from $7.9 million to $6.9 million and the seller means business, explained Merry Nash, Islandia Real Estate Owner/Broker.
“The seller says he wants Villa Lantano to be the next house sold in Peter Bay,” said Nash. “Villa Lantano is now the most competitively priced house in Upper Peter Bay.”
The jaw-dropping views from this exclusive villa are the first of many impressive features of this masonry home. There are granite counter tops in the roomy kitchen as well as custom hardwood cabinetry and professional stainless steel appliances.
Sleek travertine marble floors can be found throughout Villa Lantano and each of the five bedrooms affords those unparalleled views out to Jost Van Dyke.
A formal dining room with oversized windows brings the outdoors in, or serve meals right on the covered deck. Enjoy the shade from under the arched native stone gazebo or soak up some rays relaxing in a lounge chair.
A spa adjoins the large pool and invites evening soaks under the stars. The villa sits on a more than half acre lot with professional landscaping.
With so many amenities, the only difficult part will be choosing from which vantage point to soak in those North Shore vistas, explained Nash.
“It is hard to pin point one best feature of Villa Lantano as it has so many,” Nash said. “The North Shore view is to die for with the turquoise water colors of Francis Bay and Johnson’s Reef and there is lots of boat activity going to and from the British Virgin Islands.”
“The new stone gazebo is a shady breezy shelter perfect for reading a book — if you can keep your eyes off the water and boats,” she said.
With two spacious bedrooms and en suite baths in the main building and a separate, private wing with two additional bedrooms, Villa Lantano’s layout is ideal for large families, explained Nash.
“Villa Lantano is great for families as it has two large bedrooms with private baths under the main roof,” she said. “It also has the separate wing with two guest bedrooms. So it is really the perfect house for either families or short term rental.”
With two bedrooms, the main living areas and pool all on one level with no stairs, Villa Lantano would also be an ideal get-away for people with mobility issues, Nash added.
The villa is already a popular short term rental with repeat guests, who just can’t get enough of that view and the top-notch construction and attention to detail. For the reduced price of $6.9 million, you can open your eyes and call that view home.
