Located just ten minutes from the airport and seven minutes from the gourmet restaurants, boutiques and culture of Gustavia, Blanc Bleu is perfectly positioned to make the most of the island and has its own sense of secluded splendour, which makes it a world all of its own. You will discover an array of treats surrounding the home, including a trampoline, basketball hoop, yoga deck and state-of-the-art gym. There is also a wonderful floodlit paddle tennis court (a slightly smaller style of the game) which provides great fun and fitness for regular players and beginners alike.
The interior of Blanc Bleu is characterised by the titular colours of blue and white, representing the azure skies and ivory sands of St Barts. These sweeps of colour and space are artfully balanced by Brazilian dark wood frames and stunning photographs from London artists Dean Freeman and Louise de Lima adorn the walls.
The six ensuite bedrooms each have their own charms, with three of them boasting fabulous outdoor showers and every single one a stunning ocean view. The master suite claims a particularly fine view and a large wraparound terrace, from which the unparalleled vista can be enjoyed. The open-plan living and kitchen area invites in the sea breezes via the grand sliding glass doors, which lead out to the gorgeous terrace. Here you’ll find a glorious, banquet-appropriate long dining table, just waiting to host a large group meal or special occasion.
A particularly special part of the terrace has been transformed into a wondrously comfortable outdoor living room complete with a pull-down screen, so you can have your very own outdoor cinema. Back inside you’ll find a cosy TV room with a large screen and Xbox console. Further Apple TV screens, quiet air-conditioning and a SONOS system throughout complete the high-tech facilities. There are also blackout curtains to ensure a restful night’s sleep.
The gleaming heart of Blanc Bleu, however, is the sublime infinity pool and hot tub, which comes complete with Paola Lenti floating beds. Sunk into natural-toned wooden decking, and surrounded by towering palms, this gleaming expanse of water almost rivals the sapphire sea beyond and is the final touch to a home which really is as close to perfection as you can get.
