Villa Solimar is a rare gem on the north-west coast of St. Lucia. Built in 1998, the owners commissioned architect Brian Camacho to design their dream home with a classic design combined with bold accents with unique details that add style and casual elegance ideal for Caribbean living, with all the modern amenities.
Villa Solimar has been meticulously maintained. Driving through the gated entrance to the left of the main house is a wooden ti-kai or small house that was once a playhouse but is now in use as a satellite office space.
Once inside, the double height sky-lit foyer and wrought iron staircase create a sense of understated elegance. Prominent architectural features employed throughout the home include keystones, columns, door and window trim all rendered in coral, high ceilings and pickled beams. The home is ideally suited for entertaining with its open floor plan.
The living room is in the centre of the home and is decorated with white slip covered furniture that is anchored by a large marble-top coffee table. Four huge impact glass French doors with overhead fanlights present the perfect backdrop for the grouping of furnishings and accessories and provide a glimpse of the pool and spectacular harbour and sea views beyond.
Adjacent to the dining room is the kitchen. Continuing the décor scheme, this space reflects the general style of the house. It has classic white cabinetry with grey/black quartz countertops. It includes a bar/breakfast area, a large pantry with second fridge/freezer and the convenience of pull out drawers.
