A beautiful, single storey, four-bedroom (non-branded) beachfront home for sale near the Four Seasons resort on Desroches island in the Seychelles.
The property, built to high standards in traditional island style, has a built area of approximately 440 sqm and sits on a plot of around 2,500 sqm. There are three sea and garden-view principal bedrooms, each en suite, with free-standing bathtub and indoor and outdoor showers. A fourth, the Junior Suite, overlooks the entrance garden and includes indoor and outdoor showers.
The spacious dual aspect living area has been designed to maximise indoor/outdoor living experiences, with a covered alfresco living area and an enclosable living and dining area. Bi-folding sliding doors open onto an expansive wooden terrace which connects all areas of the property and which encapsulates the 4 x 8 metre infinity-edge swimming pool, raised one-metre above ground level, overlooking the garden and the pristine Indian Ocean beyond.
The villa is equipped with a large, fully-fitted kitchen which includes a scullery and a backyard area. Finishes include high quality wooden flooring, plastered walls, air-conditioning in bedrooms, fans in living areas and recessed lighting.
A beautiful tropical garden surrounds the property and the mature foliage ensures total privacy from neighbouring villas. There is direct access to the beach and in fact Desroches, which remains relatively untouched, offers 14 km of beautiful, deserted beaches to explore – many within easy reach, by foot or bike, on either side of the island.
The plot was originally purchased in 2007 and the villa was handed over to the first (and only) owner in 2009. This privately-owned villa has a lease which expires in November 2072. Service charge levies cover year-round expenses for inside and outside maintenance and personalised services can be obtained when in residence. The island is only accessible to villa owners and guests of the stunning Four Seasons Resort (opened in 2018).
The hotel offers two superb restaurants, a boating club, sports club and spa.
Desroches offers exclusivity and privacy that only a remote private island can provide, along with experienced, discreet service. The island is completely private; one of very few in the world being developed by a single developer and operator and it brings new benchmarks for luxury and exclusivity to the Seychelles, to rival those anywhere in the world. Desroches has been listed as one of the ‘Top 10 Remote Destinations in the World’ by Forbes.Resort Island Improvement:
- A photovoltaic system will cut soon the electricity costs by around 30-40%
- An Airtel internet cable has been laid to connect all villas (negotiations in progress for rates)
- A greenhouse farm (soon adding pork, poultry and egg production) of 10,000 sq m is installed and will offer greater supplies for all inhabitants
The island is reachable by a 35 minutes flight from Mahé; the main island has daily direct flights to all major destinations worldwide.
