The possibilities of the sprawling 19.5 acre 4-building estate at Capisterre are what makes this opportunity so exciting. Perched on the northernmost reaches of St Kitts, far down in the lowlands of Mount Liamuiga, the estate comprises multiple cottages, vast areas of lawn and a renovated sugar mill.
Features a 33’ swimming pool bordered by Himalayan slate matching the colouring of the old Kittitian stone and slate of the separate gazebo on the far side of the pool. Wonderful views from the pool and pool-house north to St Barts and St. Maar-ten.
The main villa offers a living room, with French windows opening on two sides to patio areas. There’s an outdoor kitchen – the setting for many barbecues – and a bedroom with en suite that has a bathtub inside with twin ceiling mounted showers and a discrete outdoor shower. Across the lawn sits Guava Ghaut Cottage with a large living room that leads into a large twin bedroom: the en suite has a bathtub but outside, set discretely behind a trellis, is a shower. The kitchen wing makes the whole cottage into an L shape, and in the crook sits a covered patio and outside dining.
Set apart from the other buildings and watched over by a row of Royal palms, is the Saints House with its cupola, chiming clock, and its own dramatic views out to the sea and uphill to Mount Liamuiga. This building has its own distinctive beauty and charm, fully showcasing Walwyn’s skills. At present, it provides a home office retreat, full of light and the soft tones of natural wood. As you wander through its nearly twenty sprawling acres and its surrounding 9 acre verge, the loveliness and scale of Capisterre is stunning.
All these cottages have rooms of extremely generous proportions, yet the land-scape is not defined by the estate’s buildings. This is a space for families with in-dividuals who enjoy their independence as much as their shared time – and indeed it is a place that could present a wonderful business opportunity for anyone looking to play with their imagination. It is effortlessly romantic here with everything about space and light and privacy as much as it is about companionship and moments spent together.
