Garden Terrace Villa Overview
“Garden Terrace Villa” is set in lush surroundings in Vanard, Anse la Raye. This is a farming and residential community 10 minutes south of Castries. The property is at the top of a small plateau and has sweeping views of the verdant mountains and countryside. The land is just under 3 acres and the house enjoys absolute privacy. There is a plethora of mature fruit trees and vegetable beds. This supports a garden to table lifestyle. The land nearest to the house is flat. The topography then slopes downward toward a stream near the northern boundary. There is scope for expanding the agricultural produce. The possibility also exists for building cottages and running the property as an eco-friendly bed and breakfast. Currently, it is a serene and scenic country home.
The house is a 2 story concrete structure with the main living areas on the ground floor and the bedrooms upstairs. The entrance is through a balcony on the ground floor. This wraps around the front and left sides of the house. Stone accents and large, wooden doors add character. Every angle of the balcony has a scenic view of the garden. This is a lovely space for relaxation.
The large living room is an ideal gathering space for family and friends. The sitting area faces the front doors and accommodates a 3 piece sofa set and coffee table. There is an open floor plan with a cozy reading nook to the right. The living area also contains a full bathroom.
The kitchen is recently renovated with granite countertops. It is open to the dining room. The 2 spaces are demarcated by a breakfast bar with seating. There is also a table in the center of the kitchen beneath the track lighting. The wooden cabinetry has a dark stain which contrasts nicely with the gray, granite. There is a laundry room to the side of the kitchen, which connects to the garage.
The dining room is near the staircase and has a sliding door onto the balcony. It holds a large table with 6 chairs. There are therefore numerous eating options on the ground floor – the balcony, the kitchen bar, breakfast table or dining room.
