Description:

 

In a bold departure from Caribbean style, this dramatic custom home is perfectly perched on the edge of a cliff looking down into breaking surf and beyond to limitless sea vistas dotted with islands.

All sleekly done in a minimalist mode of formed gray concrete (even the floors inside and out are of cool concrete), this private villa sets a new standard of design on St. Thomas with its primitive-modern style.

Stands of tropical banana trees along a staircase welcome you to Banana's six pavilions, beautifully arranged along the cliffline. Banana's main level centers around the breathtaking Promontory Terrace, offering the breezy Great Room and indoor and outdoor kitchen areas set for alfresco dining, all linked together by a covered gallery walkway artistically punctuated by a series of courtyards, terraces and verandahs.

At one end of Banana is a two-story pavilion with two equal air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suites, with a third air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suite off to the side and another at the mezzanine level.

At the opposite end of Banana's sweeping expanse are two more air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suites, each in its own private pavilion bisected by a trellised courtyard. Just below is the so-dramatic pool, built amongst massive boulders and overlooking soothing waves and pelicans diving for their dinner.

Ethnic design and furnishings influenced by trips overseas complete the very pleasing fare at Banana - and you'll revel in the openess and free-spirited ambience and the expansive space of this cool, breezy and awe-inspiring hideaway perched over the sea.
