The monumental oceanfront villa in the dynamic city center of Pietemaai, Punda, stands as a timeless testament to the grandeur of the 19th century Curacao. The villa is part of the Unesco Heritage.
We are offering this historic gem with its own beach in the midst of uptown Pietermaai area, the culinary entertainment district of Curacao. Because of its monumental status, this object is exempt from the 4% transfer tax when purchased. Read our blog about Buying Monumental properties on Curacao for more information.
The present moment finds us stepping through the gates that guard the entrance to the villa built on a 750 m2 lot. There is parking space for several cars in the front. A wide, stately staircase leads to the front patio and entrance of this unique monument, offering 400 m2 of living space. Inside, the ground floor unfolds before us with its grandeur. A spacious living room awaits, exuding an air of sophistication, with its original wooden floorings, high ceilings and beautiful shutter windows allowing the cool breeze to enter throughout the whole villa.
From the hallway, we find our way to three exquisite bedrooms, each uniquely adorned with antique furnishings that whisper tales of yesteryears. Two luxurious bathrooms offer a touch of modern comfort, while a fully-equipped kitchen and elegant dining area allow residents to savour gourmet meals with the ocean as their backdrop.
An inside patio beckons us, cool and breezy, overlooking the grand 200 m2 pool deck and the private beach. The Caribbean's gentle waves caress the shore, creating a symphony of relaxation enjoyed from the pool or at the little beach itself.
Climbing the grand staircase in the hallway to the first floor, we encounter two more bedrooms, and an upstairs hallway equipped with archwindows that frame stunning ocean views. Each morning, the sun bathes these rooms in its early glow, gently coaxing the residents awake to yet another day of paradise.
Descending to the souterrain, we discover a living room with a charming kitchenette, a bathroom, and a separate powder room. But the pièce de résistance lies hidden, a stunning pool and game room complete with a well-stocked bar. Laughter and joy echo within these walls as friends and family gather for unforgettable evenings of fun.
As night falls over Pietemaai, the villa comes alive in a different way. The soft glow of lights within and the shimmering pool outside create a magical ambiance. It's a place where history meets modernity, where the Caribbean's timeless beauty is celebrated, and where memories are woven into the fabric of a grand, oceanfront villa that has witnessed the passage of time for over a century.
Architecturally, the villa consists of a detached one-storey structure laid out on a basement above ground. The villa has a gable roof over it's core area, and adjoining slant roofs over the front and rear galleries. There are two dormers on both sides of main roof. The rear section has transverse hipped roofs and three tent roofs surrounding a patio and the front façade has corner pilasters connected to a functional cistern under the front terrace and front stairs with landing.
This monumental villa that is now for sale has architectural historical and cultural historical value because of the floor plan with core, front and rear gallery, and, a.o. the cistern under the terrace and the detailing of the gable ends. It has specific value as part of a protected monumental townscape typical of Curaçao.
Because of its location, this monument -besides its luxury residential purposes-, also is an interesting investment opportunity for commercial rental or other commercial exploitation purposes. The asking price excludes the antique furnishing.
