By William Holden

This villa is centrally located in Casa de Campo in the Las Colinas community which has tremendous views of both the Dye Fore Golf Course and the Caribbean Sea. It is near the Yacht Club and Marina, and in addition, Altos de Chavon, which is a world-class tourist destination with breath-taking views of the Chavon River. Las Colinas 21 is a spacious 13,326 s.f. (1,238 m2) villa that offers 11 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, 3 swimming pools, 4 jacuzzis, a sauna, and more. It is situated on nearly an acre of lush gardens (4000 m2) and has an added feeling of open space because of the golf course and Caribbean views. The multiple swimming pools and surrounding terraces add to the feel of expansive openness. The main access to the interior of the villa is a wooden walkway over water that passes matching lounge areas on each side of the walkway. Once inside the villa, you get a sense of rustic elegance with the tall windows and natural wood ceiling beams above that ascend upwards. The bedrooms have a similar feeling with windows looking out at tropical gardens and high, wood-beam ceilings that seem to reach for the sky. There are also multiple covered terraces for morning coffee or afternoon cocktails. Some covered terraces have private jacuzzis. The dining room has the same feeling of elegant openness with multiple windows and high wooden-beam ceilings. The kitchen is both modern and rustic with all the best in appliances.
