A very elegant, custom built Mediterranean style villa in Coral Bay  3 Bdrm – 3.5 Bath – Sleeps 8 – Pool – A/C – 4300 Sq. Ft. – Parking for 2-3 jeeps

This 3- bedroom villa is a true diamond that glitters in the hills above Coral Bay. Solemare (meaning sun and sea) was the dreamhouse of a successful Italian American who grew up in Italy and frequently vacationed in the Mediterranean islands. He fell in love with St. John and retained a renown St. John architect to custom design a classic Mediterranean style villa . He wanted a villa that would capture the romance and elegance of the villas he vacationed in on the Italian coast. With its timeless beauty and style, we think Solemare succeeds in bringing the ageless magnificence of Italy to St. John. We also think that this is a unique villa that you’ll fall in love with, as intended by Corrado Bruzzo.

Solemare is a large (4300 sq/ft) villa that consists of 2 buildings -a main house and a pool house – both with two levels and with a covered walkway connecting the two buildings. You park above the villa and descend a flight of stairs down to the upper deck of the main house. Mahogany French doors lead from the upper deck into the gourmet kitchen. The handsome kitchen adjoins the spacious (1000 sq/ft) and comfortable great room, which is accessorized with fascinating antiquities and hung with colorful artwork that was commissioned by one artist expressly for Solemare. Even in today’s Italy, the dinner table is a place of lively conversation and relaxed dining that sometimes stretches for hours. With that idea in mind, Solemare’s dining table was located in a stunning setting with a majestic view that might keep you fixated around the table for hours. There is a half bath off the great room, and a marble interior stairway leads down to the bedroom on the lower level of the main house. Exterior stairs off the upper deck also lead down to the pool, pool deck and the main house lower bedrooms The pool house contains two large king bedrooms, both with exquisite marble and mahogany bathrooms. A covered walkway leads to the master bedroom on the upper level, while exterior stairs lead down to the pool deck and the lower bedroom of the pool house. Because this is Solemare, the master bedroom and the main house bedroom both have solarium showers so you can shower with the sun (and the stars).
