Here’s your property listing for life in paradise.
Hidden away in a remote part of the Caribbean is a tiny island of some recent fame among the wealthy and notable thanks to Lord Glenconner, who purchased that little place of perfection — Mustique — in 1958. He spent decades influencing the transformation of the once raw real-estate into a haven for the prosperous and playful, enticing the likes of Princess Margaret, Mick Jagger, Bryan Adams and Tommy Hilfiger to buy into the somewhat clandestine community. But now, the idyll’s secret is out, and even some of the elites are moving on.
Lord Glenconner fixed his fancy on a new wonderland, and is offering a part of his latest residential paradise to you, too: “After Mustique I searched the world for something smaller but with the same intimacy, personality and potential and yet with accessibility and amenities. By good luck I lighted upon the 480 acre estate between The Pitons in nearby St. Lucia…” And these new exceptional, and exceptionally exclusive, residences are ready to be snapped up by a suitable select few.
The all new Glenconner Beach Residences at Sugar Beach, a 130-acre luxury resort on the south-west coast of St Lucia that was formerly Lord Glenconner’s private home (previously known as the Jalousie Plantation), consists of six uber-privileged properties designed by renowned Caribbean architect Lane Pettigrew. Each offers superior outdoor and indoor living with features like expansive terraces overlooking sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea; spacious, sun-filled living areas ideal for elegant entertaining; a fresh water infinity-edged swimming pool surrounded by lushly landscaped gardens of native flowers and trees; and direct access to a portion of a private white sand beach. Owners will also have access to the nearby facilities and luxuries of the five-star Sugar Beach Hotel, a Viceroy Resort.
The residences, which blur the line between home and hotel, range from four to six bedrooms, and in price from $5.5 to $12 million. And private paradises are popular — at least one of the six has already been snatched.
Lord Glenconner seems to have a penchant for turning nature’s beauty into residential bliss. Don’t miss your fleeting chance to call “Home” one of the world’s most desirable addresses.
