Location, location, location. That phase is bandied about liberally in real estate, but this newly listed $25 million villa in the middle of St. Barth’s is the perfect illustration of why people are willing to pay hefty sums for property in an ideal spot.
Known for its wild nightlife, the tiny island — one can drive from end to end in just 30 minutes– is the go-to spot for celebs and the wealthy to congregate. And owning the “Villa RKK” would no doubt help in your own congregating efforts.
The 4800-square foot property is centrally located in the island’s Petite Saline “quartier” and overlooks the coveted Lorient Bay — which offers the island’s best surfing and views.
Bloomberg points out that its tranquil location is an ideal place to decompress after the famously harrowing plane trip onto the island. Perfect for both relaxation or partying with friends, the compound features four buildings across three acres. The estate has a total of five bedrooms and five baths and even has its own mountainside tennis court, garage, gym and pond.
The main building features crazy good views, three bedrooms, including a master suite which comes with its own plunge pool, and a larger infinity pool. A second dwelling has two more bedrooms which can be used for servants or guests.
