Beaulieu's open floor plan guarantees views of Baie Rouge beach (a three-minute drive away), the Caribbean Sea, and Anguilla from every room in the house, which is perched cliffside on Falaise de Oiseaux. The stylish living, family, and dining rooms are framed by white walls and vaulted ceilings, with zebra-print ottomans and more understated earth-tone furnishings throughout. Adjacent to the common areas, each of the villa's three bedrooms stands as a separate keyed unit, flanking the perimeter of the 50-foot heated pool. The expansive baths are encased in glass and surrounded by lush landscaping.
