Single Family Homes
Located in the residential neighborhood of Cas Cora lies this grand estate, build in 2006 in true colonial style, qualifying as a plantation home or country home. This modern “landhuis” as its colonial counterparts is the centerpiece of a grand lot with an impressive entrance, façade and breezy large terrace. These estates were core to the plantations of the past and in this case Kaya Themis 15 is surrounded by lucious tropical landscaped garden. With all the characteristics as the authentic island yellow, ornate white trim, classic pitched roofs and window dormers it also provides modern luxury and amenities. The scale of the estate can already be seen driving by as the 3,748 m² lot has two of the buildings in view. The ornate gates swing open to a pebbled circular driveway with the main villa taking center stage before driving towards the three-car carport, secured with sensors while cameras secure the full property. A storage area follows and next the maids quarter, apt as a one bedroom appartment, having its own covered terrace, living, galley kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
The 251 m² “landhuis” itself makes a statement with steps to its portico entrance. French shutter doors open to the entryway seperating the center hall with the front door. You can go left and enter this open living room by going left or right pass the powder room first. Central to these country homes the living area connects to all its other rooms, this modern take also opens up to the terrace, providing garden & pool views. Custom iron work closes the living from the terrace in an onrnamental way. Cathedral-, beam-ceiling with skylights and chandeliers adorn above while Surinamese hardwood cover the floors and archways lead to all the other areas. First to the right, the kitchen, with fridge, cabinets, Invictus oven & microwave and dishwasher in an L-shape and cooktop with additional cabinetry on the peninsula counter. Behind this lies the laundry facility, also connected with the sideyard. An elegant library follows with a floor to ceiling shelving complete with a traditional rolling ladder. Currently in use as an office, this space is alike the others; open with curved archways and connecting to the terrace with direct views over the garden & pool. Running the whole length of the villa is the master bedroom with en suite bathroom and walk in closet. This master bedroom is open in style with archways revealing the bathroom. Bringing a bit of nostalgia a classic bathtub adorns the left side followed by a stall shower while opposite lie the double sink and freestanding toilet. The wooden floor is in this area a path leading to double mirrored doors conceiling the spacious walk in closet. This master also connects to the covered terrace. A key feature of “landhuizen” are the breezy large terraces overlooking the grounds. This also arched terrace spans the entire length of the villa, over 14 meters long. The 58 m² covered terrace has a sitting area to the left, in front of the master, a dining area to the right, in front of the study.
As the former estates Kaya Themis 15 boasts fruit trees such as mango, tamarind, soursop, avocado and papaya. The landscaped garden with walkways from the entrance to the backyard even has one path named as a street. “Dianastraat” leads to the guesthouse; complete with street sign and lantern. The highlight of the backyard is the swimming pool, freeform and dive-in with a depth of around 3 meters, surrounded by sunbeds, an outdoor shower and a powder room behind it. Here also lies the pool pump room. Rounding up the list of features is the two-bedroom guesthouse. Located in the far left corner of the lot and with its own driveway and one car-carport.
