If you’re rolling in riches and are on the lookout for a lavish, never-seen-before residential wonder – here’s where your search should end! We’re hinting towards The Terraces – a palatial Caribbean home that is the most expensive in the region and also one of the priciest in the world with its $200 million tag!
17 acres of palatial bliss with top-in-the-line amenities:
For being the most expensive home ever listed in the Caribbean, The Terraces is bound to include luxuries of the rarest kind. For starters – it spans across a massive 17 acres and includes 9 structures within its tow! Yes, that’s right!
As per the estate’s 41-page marketing brochure, it includes nine ensuite bedrooms in the main house, an 80-foot-long swimming pool, and “the largest entertaining space on the entire island.” The property further boasts sweeping views of the Caribbean and Atlantic Coasts from all directions and comes with an independent guest villa with its own pool
A 60 feet tunnel, murals painted by Jean-Claude Adenin, and more:
Designed by architect Tom Wilson, The Terraces accommodates a 16,000-square-foot residence that is complete with extravagant rooms, gilded furniture, and painted domed ceilings. Its floor plan showcases a 60-foot tunnel connecting the main villa to a structure just below called the Annex – a 12,000 square feet space that is dedicated to games and entertainment.
The larger-than-life entertainment arena also includes a wraparound terrace that features the estate’s second swimming pool with an infinity edge that appears to send water cascading down the hillside. Further, the gorgeous home is completed with hand-painted ceilings boasting a series of painstakingly executed murals, painted by French artist Jean-Claude Adenin.
A true gem of Mustique:
In addition to this, the property includes a rolling lawn with a tennis court, a chapel, laundry facilities, and two more buildings to accommodate staff. Completely serviced, it is taken care of by a property manager, two butlers, three chefs, six housekeepers, and six gardeners at the moment.
Located on the small private island of Mustique (which lies in the southern Caribbean nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines), The Terraces is a true gem. As per Edward de Mallet Morgan, head of international super-prime sales at Knight Frank, who represents the mega-listing:
“Paparazzi are banned in Mustique, and the easy, relaxed interaction of royal families, rock stars, celebrities, business moguls, and entrepreneurs is really unique to Mustique. It is a place where doors are not locked, and no one bats an eye when you arrive at dinner barefoot.” And needless to say – The Terraces stays true to the vibe of Mustique!
