Comedian Steve Martin’s villa in St. Barth just hit the market for $US10.75 million,
according to The Telegraph.
The Colonial-style house, called Villa Au Soleil, has an open plan with four bedrooms and a separate dining room. It also has a two-tiered infinity pool, a handful of sun terraces, and 180-degree views of St. Jean Bay. The property came furnished, and Martin made very few changes.
“Myself and my family have had a fantastic few years at the villa,” Martin told The Telegraph, “We will be sad to say goodbye.”
Martin used the villa for annual vacations and rented it out during the off-season, according to Tom Smyth, the point person in the sale of Martin’s villa through the St. Barth Properties division of Sotheby’s International Realty.
It shouldn’t be too hard for Martin to find another buyer. The real estate market on this six-mile-wide Caribbean island is experiencing an uptick, and the local government allows little new construction to preserve it as a luxurious hideaway, which keeps it popular among celebrities like Jay Z, Beyonce and Sir Paul McCartney.
