Celebrities, real estate, island escapes – three of our favourite things, wrapped in a single multi-million dollar package. Comedian Steve Martin has listed his St. Barts villa for $7.78 million USD and it is serious property porn.
The four-bedroom hilltop home has been on the market since 2013, with an original sale price of $11.24 million USD. After several price cuts, it has finally sold to an unnamed buyer and we get to take a tour through its 279-square-metres of blissful Caribbean living.
Highlights of the home include a two-tiered swimming pool and a covered alfresco dining area, both of which offer sweeping views of St. Barts’ turquoise waters and white sand beaches. The master suite boasts an outdoor shower and a private wooden deck with a sunken hot tub. A colorfully decorated gazebo is surrounded by a lily pond in the garden.
Inside, the villa is spacious and airy with open plan rooms and high ceilings. The living room and kitchen area is flanked by two wings, each with two bedrooms, in the form of a V. The V-shaped structure makes the most of the jaw-dropping coastal views.
Not bad for a banjo player.
