Description of Rivendell
Walk to renowned Peter Bay Beach in a few minutes via a shady jungle path from this stunning, just-remodeled four-bedroom villa surrounded by graceful palms and heliconia.
Rivendell is an exceptional and luxurious private home on 1-1/2 lush acres, secluded within lovely tropical gardens. This beautiful property offers two fully air-conditioned pavilions, an infinity-edge swimming pool with a large built-in hot tub and waterfall and a second entertainment kitchen shaded under an open poolside pavilion.
Rivendell's two-storied main pavilion houses the spacious Great Room, a home office nook, and a powder room on its main floor. The office area is equipped with a 4-in-1 printer, and there's Wi-Fi throughout the property for your laptops. French doors open from the Great Room out to the tiled private terrace and to the infinity-edge pool, hot tub and the outdoor entertainment pavilion just outside. The open pavilion offers a wet bar, stainless steel gas grill, an icemaker and a mini-fridge, and there's an air-conditioned exercise room below with satellite TV.
Above Rivendell's main level, via an exotic-wood staircase, is the air-conditioned master bedroom/bath suite with a romantic four-poster bed and french doors opening to a step-out balcony. Next to the master suite is an air-conditioned bedroom with two twin beds; its adjacent bath has a jacuzzi bathtub and a bidet. Both rooms have large windows on two sides which overlook the pool terrace, the vibrant tropical gardens and the ocean beyond.
Just outside, connecting Rivendell's main pavilion and the pool courtyard, is the heart of this villa: a gourmet kitchen within a covered and screened-in dining and lounging area. A dining table, easy chairs and ceiling fans make this area everyone's favorite spot for gathering and relaxing.
The second pavilion, adjacent to the pool terrace, houses two equal-sized air-conditioned queen bedroom/bath suites, one on each of two levels.
Rivendell is beautifully distinguished by its breathtaking sea views, lovely gardens with tiled walkways and patios with brick accents, sink-into sofas and mahogany and teak furnishings enhanced by custom tropical woods and native stonework throughout, fully-screened windows, hand-painted sinks, and original island art. Although just a few minutes from the white sands of Peter Bay Beach, Rivendell is completely private and sequestered within a privileged world of its own...very highly recommended.
