Built with entertaining in mind, L’Autre Monde offers hosts and their guests plenty of space to mingle  and, when desired, to enjoy the utmost in privacy as well.

This four bedroom, four and a half bathroom custom built villa boasts breath-taking water views over Great Cruz Bay and is for sale for $5.25 million, explained Islandia Real Estate/Sea Glass Properties broker associate Lynn Giovanna.

Meaning “another world” in French, L’Autre Monde truly takes one far away from the hustle and bustle of life, yet its Great Cruz Bay location means you’re only a few minutes’ drive to the shops, dining and nightlife of Cruz Bay.

“L’Autre Monde is located in the Great Cruz Bay neighborhood with protective covenants and restrictions and private dinghy dock access,” said Giovanna. “This well maintained neighborhood is very popular for short term rentals. It is a wonderful area for a morning jog or evening stroll and you are just a few minutes from town, shopping, grocery stores, restaurants and North Shore beaches.”

 From the spacious deck at L’Autre Monde, soak up sunset views and watch as the lights of St. Thomas twinkle to life in the distance. Areas of the deck can connect to span the length of the entire villa, which is separated into two distinct wings.

The East Wing was originally started as a master suite addition and eventually became a four bedroom wing completed in 2004. This wing, completely separate and self-sufficient from the West Wing, features a professional-grade kitchen, as well as a spacious outdoor dining and BBQ area.

The East Wing boasts four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms over two levels. A laundry room and three of the bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as a home gym and office, are found on the lower level.

L’Autre Monde’s East Wing also features a luxurious, custom-design swimming pool with a unique waterfall feature as well as outdoor dining areas and plenty of deck space.

The original structure at L’Autre Monde is now the West Wing and is accessed across a covered stone walkway. The main level of the West Wing consists of two bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as an open-air living space with an oversized great room and dining area.

The West Wing boasts its own professional-grade kitchen as well as its own heated pool/spa, outdoor dining area and spacious decks. An additional one bedroom and one bathroom — accessed via private entry making it ideal as a caretaker’s unit — is found on the lower level of the West Wing.

With sweeping water views, plenty of space to entertain as well as get away from it all, L’Autre Monde is truly a one-of-a-kind property.

“L’Autre Monde is a unique, custom built property with quality, high-end finishes that should truly be seen to be appreciated,” said Giovanna. “Much attention was paid to detail with African slate floors throughout most of the property, extensive stonework, handmade glass sinks, custom cabinetry, indoor/outdoor audio system and more.”
