Etoile de Mer sits at the edge of the sea in the private village of Shore Pointe right on the French/Dutch Border. Like an exquisite microcosm of a gleaming white Greek island, the villas of Shore Pointe are individual, elegant gems within a luxurious gated community. The entrance to Etoile de Mer is framed by lush tropical bushes and classic white columns. An elegant frosted glass door opens to the dramatic descending marble staircase that transports you to the main living area and a stunning view of the blue sky, Caribbean Sea and the outer islands.
The contemporary interiors, with tumbled travertine floors, flow through stunning glass and wood sliding doors right onto a spacious covered terrace and deck. The wraparound space is perfect for outdoor dining and lounging. Graceful arches and columns draw your eye to the deep blue pool that seems to flow straight to the sea.
The interior décor blends tropical tones and patterns with teak woods accents; elegant and comfortable. Colorful local art adorns the walls throughout the villa. The open plan living area features a high-end kitchen with luxury appliances, beautiful woods and stainless steel. The indoor dining area is between the kitchen and the view.
