Imagine waking up to the soothing sound of the waves breaking on the jagged coastline just a few yards below you. This tasteful villa on the northeastern quadrant of Anguilla affords you the possibility of doing just that, for as long as you want. Perched at the top of the modest bluff known locally as Captain’s Ridge, overlooking Island Harbour, the four-bedroom, two-storied house pairs an incomparable location with a lovingly appointed family feel and a generous parcel to boot.

The oceanfront lot measures two acres, with plenty of development land both to the north and the west of the current structure. Laid out over two different levels, the villa boasts ample living areas both on the inside and outdoors. Several decks and terraces around the house turn the focal point outwards, with a number of features dotting the wrap-around gallery. The colorful tropical garden on one side emphasizes the strong sense of privacy of the property, while the endless expanse of the deep blue ocean on the other brings back a sense of proportion to all things human. The charming pool on the western end of the building adjoins a stand-alone studio annex, perfect for guests.

The three bedrooms are located on the top portion of the main house, each with its own private terrace and en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom also features a walk-in closet, while the entire property is enhanced by carefully chosen works of local and regional artists. The private driveway leads to a large enclosed garage, which doubles up as a workshop/office area. Subtly shaped to recreate the semi-exposed feel of a boat at sea, the villa is in fact rather protected from the ocean by the natural slant of the ridge below. Asking price: US $1,200,000.
