Sometimes a Key West cottage that at first glance appears predictable from the outside, is full of abundant surprises when you walk inside. Villa Nouveau Key West vacation rental has an interesting story that attests to this truth. Once a prosaic 'shot-gun' style cottage, a modern redesign has thoughtfully transformed it into a sophisticated 'L-Shape' 4 bedroom 4 bathroom pool-side courtyard villa. An ambitious and creative change, this fabulous property was recently renovated to receive a luxury pool-side great room, 4 beautiful bedrooms, and a custom designed private swimming pool and lounging deck.
Interior: Everything about the handsome interior of this 4 bedroom 4 bathroom pool-side villa is brand shiny new; only the original outside roof-line remains the same to protect the historic exterior. The interior décor draws from a soft tropical color palate of blues and sand tones and incorporates elegant modern furnishings of leather and wood. Floors throughout are tiled with earth tone travertine marble. Architectural angles and recessed lighting make the spaces fresh and spacious. An open concept kitchen-dining room-living room is finished with modern wooden cabinets, granite counter tops, upscale appliances and fixtures, and boasts a state-of-the-art entertainment center with a large screen TV placed over a wet-bar.
For sleeping, the bedrooms shown on the graphic as number 1, 2 and 3 provide king size beds, while bedroom number 4 provides 2 full beds. Each of the 4 bedrooms provides a private en-suite bathroom. Bedrooms with king size beds provide spacious walk-in showers, while the bedroom with the twin beds offers a bath tub with in-tub shower.
Grounds: The Villa Nouveau vacation rental is situated at the southeast corner and the rear of the grounds Grande Dame Key West – The Watson House estate. It is made private with tall wooden privacy walls between the properties and a separate entrance on the extreme south side of the grounds just beyond the parking area. The villa has a beautiful 'L- Shape' private pool set into the back deck. It follows the line of the house, and curves around the corner of the house outside the great-room and is visible and accessible through three sets of single-pane French doors.
Designed to comfortably sleep 8, if your group grows, it’s possible to rent this home in combination with the larger estate home, the Grande Dame Key West – ‘The Watson House,’ next door. When rented in its entirety, it is offered as an exclusive vacation rental compound we call, The Meeting Point – Key West. If you are looking to accommodate a larger group, renting the 4 bedroom villa and 7 bedroom main estate home provides one of the most unique and beautiful private vacation rental properties in Key West.
