Taliesin is a truly remarkable contemporary property inspired by Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright. Walls are constructed into the hillside; apart from the occasional glass screen to act as wind-break, three full aspects of the main living and dining areas are completely open to the elements - the transition from indoors to outside revealed not by doors but by a change in flooring such as Welsh slate to travertine or wood onto terraces. Created by brilliant American designer Guy Walker, this passage from indoor/outdoor spaces into informal landscaping is created with great subtlety, giving way to extensive areas of native, natural canopy that teems with local wildlife. There are mature gum trees, red and white cedar trees - themselves works of art - and pathways leading past tropical fauna with fragrant frangipani to fish ponds and plunging waterfalls.
Taliesin has beautiful, uninterrupted sea views stretching out across the Atlantic Ocean, ever changing from sun rise to sun set - all views are spectacular. The villa overlooks Lime Kiln Bay with Macaroni and Simplicity Beaches beyond.
Interiors are beautifully designed, understated and sophisticated, with cool, light colours schemes throughout. All the bedrooms have crisp white linens and state of the art walk-in shower suites. The kids' bedroom can sleep up to 4 and there is a connecting door to the next bedroom, in case this may be required for a nanny. The master bedroom suite has the ultimate bath spa with hydrotherapy and chromotherapy. The house provides a choice of four spectacular dining areas - each with its own character and mood.
Guests of all ages will adore Taliesin - whether swimming in the glorious pool, relaxing on a sun lounger on one of the many terraces, strolling along one the nearby beautiful white sand beaches, chilling in the state of the art media room or enjoying sundowners watching the fabulous sunsets.
