Set amidst the picturesque and tranquil waterfront of the western end of Sapodilla Bay, La Mer Estate comprises La Mer South (two roofs) and La Mer West (one roof). La Mer South is an ultra-luxurious ocean front 9-bedroom estate home – considered as the crown jewel of Sapodilla Bay, and one of the neighborhood’s most desirable properties. Combined, they offer 14 flawless bedrooms and span approximately 18,000 sq. ft. under cover (13,800 a/c sq. ft.), and 24,000 sq. ft. of total finished areas on .82 acres and 210' of pristine ocean frontage. Offered individually or jointly for sale and for rental, the combined villas offer a rare and compelling combination with ample privacy.
La Mer Estate’s unique advantages include its proximity to the water’s edge along its 210 ft of ocean frontage, with a rare south exposure, and an elevator. Vast great rooms and wrap around terraces capture the magical array of light and gentle breezes from sunrise to sunset. Protected from the prevailing easterly wind, the location is a peaceful and silent retreat (no airplane noise here). Completed as two independent or combined luxury rental properties in 2022 to great success, this is a must-see estate - exquisitely designed and furnished throughout.
The high glass sliding doors and windows in the homes showcase the airy spaces and 360-degree views across Sapodilla Bay to the south and Chalk Sound to the north (unique turquoise water views on both sides!), tucked amidst a lushly landscaped site. Many have compared its creative use of glass with the feeling of staying on a yacht – with the ability to capture the seascape from all areas of the home. What’s more ? Ultra-high vaulted ceilings, masterful crafted millwork in the kitchen, bathrooms and custom built-ins are coupled with impeccable and elegant furnishings. Very private, the villas offer eight of fourteen total bedrooms with oceanfront south-facing balconies. In addition, the final two bedrooms and a conference room have a separate entry and could be converted into staff accommodation or spacious gym. La Mer South also includes a plush media room, high-end conference room, ample storage, professional grade laundry room, XL 34’ deep garage (13” door width for motorboat storage + 1 car or alternatively 3 cars) and carport. Both infinity-edge pools are showstoppers and include a pool heater and a cover, a unique child safety that protects the pool and evaporation.
A swimming platform at La Mer South doubles as a dock and a designated mooring is situated in front of the house, while La Mer West has its own water and swimming access and ‘dry beach’. Boating, water skiing, jet skiing, kayaking and paddle boarding amongst many other activities can be enjoyed right off the home’s dock. Friends can easily and happily be welcomed off their deep-draft Yachts, or Sailing Boats by dropping their anchors right in front of the house – a unique feature to La Mer. This is the only place on the island where the draft offshore makes this possible.
La Mer’s location and set up offer an ideal gateway to a full array of water sports and activities for a large family and friends including table tennis, pool table on the upper level, and waterfront Pétanque court. The property is gated and within a few minutes’ walk from Taylor Bay and Sapodilla Bay beaches.
