Steve Martin’s stunning colonial-style $10.5m villa

Comedian Steve Martin’s St Barthélemy villa, dubbed Villa Au Soleil, is nestled high in the hills above the Caribbean. The luxury colonial-style spread features four bedrooms, open-plan living space plus a dining-room. Outdoors it boasts lush verdant tropical gardens, a two-tiered infinity pool, and several sundecks and  terraces.
