From the architect. The house is sited on a high, thin peninsula, affording 270 degree views from South through West to North. The long axis of the house is perpendicular to the axis of the peninsula, aligning it with sunrise and sunset. The main space is open from North to South, with bedrooms behind a wall that angles away toward the South-East, making the space wider at the West end of the house. The effect is akin to a lens opening up to the view across a bay and other islands beyond. Each bedroom opens to a private walled terrace with an outdoor shower beneath a pergola.

The West and South facades are floor-to-ceiling glass panels. The glass panels part at the corner and slide into the exterior walls, opening the house completely and allowing the Pennsylvania Limestone wall to extend beyond without interruption. This allows for a seamless connection between the main living space and the exterior spaces, engaging the entire site as an extension of the house.

The walls are Pennsylvania limestone, floors are sucupira wood, countertops are polished concrete, terraces are bluestone.

Simply gorgeous! Love it!
P.S. Using 'France' as a 'country' in the description - however correct it might be - is missleading a bit. This is simply a Caribbean area (hence the open design). By the way 'amonle' - Google points to the correct spot, just zoom out using '-' button.

Thanks
I think they changed the map now though

This is paradise! Beautiful design, gorgeous views. Yes, Amonle, St Barthelemy belong to France but it is the Caribbean. The other French island, just off the coast of France, in the Mediterranean is Corsica.

Isn't this in Saint Barthélemy (also known as 'St Barts') in the Caribbean. Politically it is part of France but I think the Google map should be pointing to warmer climes.

Nicely detailed. Nice restrain as well, these types of villas tend to become an architectural mishmash when too much money spoils the broth.

iner space combines with beautiful landscape outside well.
