Set amidst the picturesque and tranquil waterfront of the western end of Sapodilla Bay, La Mer South (two roofs) 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.
La Mer South is adjacent to its sister property La Mer West (one roof).Offered individually or jointly for sale (at $15.95 million) and for rental, the combined villas offer a rare and compelling combination.
La Mer South’s unique advantages include its proximity to the water’s edge along its 125ft of ocean frontage, with a rare south exposure. The main great room and wrap around terrace capture the magical array of light and gentle breezes from sunrise to sunset.
Away from the hustle and bustle, on gentle waters, protected from the prevailing easterly wind, the location is a peaceful and silent retreat (no airplane noise here). Completed as a luxury rental property in 2022 to great success, it is a must-see home - exquisitely designed and furnished villa – benefiting from its direct relationship to the sandy-bottomed and pristine calm waterfront.
The high glass sliding doors and windows 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.
A swimming platform doubles as a dock and a designated mooring is situated just in front of the house for easy use. 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 and moor with a tender at the home’s dock – a unique feature to La Mer. This is the one and only place on the island where the draft offshore makes this possible.
Very private, the villa offers six of nine total bedrooms with oceanfront south-facing balconies, and each impeccably appointed with luxurious ensuite bathrooms. The children’s room (up to 8) creates unforgettable memories. A second master bedroom on the north side enjoys spectacular views across Chalk Sound. In addition, the final two bedrooms and a conference room have a separate entry (as well as an internal connecting door to the main house) and could be converted into staff accommodation or spacious gym.
The home is built to the highest standards, spans nearly 15,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor areas of which 11,800 is under cover and 8,600 is A/C space.
The infinity-edge pool is a showstopper. It includes a pool heater and a cover, a unique child safety and user-friendly feature that protects the pool and evaporation. A plush media room, ultra high-end conference room (ideally suited for private retreats), ample storage, professional grade laundry room, XL 34’ deep garage (13” door width for motorboat storage + 1 car) ( or alternatively 3 cars) and carport round out this truly flawless property.
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. The villa is serviced as a successful luxury rental offering full services with exceptional reviews. Please inquire about details.
