An Overview of Steve Martin’s Island Villa
Home Stratosphere says that Steve Martin’s romantic St. Barts villa sits on a hillside perch in Lurin. Its elevated position means that it overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, the boat harbor, and pink-roofed houses below. It is a home for someone who will appreciate the beauty of this setting. Steve Martin bought the property as somewhere he could get away from the busy Hollywood lifestyle, and so that he could spend time writing. He enjoyed the privacy, security, and beauty of the location. He called the property Villa Au Soleil. Although larger than many of the neighboring properties, this four-bedroom villa has many of the external features that are typical of the area. For example, it has light-colored walls and pink-tiled roofs. It is a single-story property that sprawls across the expansive grounds. Martin put the property on the market for $11.59 million, but it did not sell. Therefore, he dropped the price to entice people to buy the stunning villa. It is now on the market for $10.623 million.
