Description

Mrs. Russel's House is an artistic blend of the historic and contemporary. This lovely three bedroom house, with a two bedroom and a one bedroom cottage beside it and included in the rental, dates from the first half of the 1800's. During the recent restoration of both main house and cottages, the original historic architecture was preserved while accommodating the needs of modern luxury living, including state-of-the-art fixtures, appliances, and electronics, and an ocean-view infinity-edge pool. Mixing original furnishings with a unique blend of creatively researched pieces, Mrs. Russel’s renowned Italian architect created a sense of Colonial nostalgia that is unique and delightful. The main house has three full-size bedrooms. Two feature king-sized beds and the third has two double beds. The house has a large formal living room, elegant formal dining room with seating for six, and a fully equipped island kitchen with gas cooktop and state-of-the-art Smeg appliances. There are 3 luxurious modern bathrooms, two with showers and one with shower/tub combination. A large terrace overlooks the private pool and harbor with beautiful ocean and sunset views. Amenities at Mrs. Russel's include WIFI, flat-screen cable TV, air conditioning, ceiling fan, hi-fi stereo, cordless telephone, washer/dryer, and off-street parking. The two bedroom cottage, Stone House, features natural oak floors and the high ceilings. You enter Stone House into the spacious living room. There is a large loft bedroom above it, accessed by a flight of three steps, with twin beds, a sitting area, and a dramatic cathedral ceiling. Pass through the living room to the dining room and fully equipped kitchen featuring state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances. There is also a full bath on this level with walk-in shower. The master bedroom is accessed down a flight of stairs. It has a king bed and beautifully appointed en suite bath with shower and tub. Outside, enjoy Stone House’s large and lovely shaded porch. You will be surrounded by a lush garden which is home to many fruit trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus, aloe and coconut palms. The one bedroom cottage, Toad Hall, features a spacious living room with elegant contemporary and antique furnishings, including a grand piano. The dining area has seating for six at an antique mahogany table. The fully equipped peninsula kitchen features state-of-the-art stainless steel Smeg appliances, including a built-in 100 cm gas cooktop, electric oven, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher. Upstairs, Toad Hall has an enormous king bedroom suite with cathedral ceilings and hardwood floors, furnished with exquisite antiques. The roof deck off the bedroom offers extensive ocean and sunset views. The master suite features a unique giant shower/tub that is a favorite of our guests.
