Located at the highest point on one of the largest individual tracts of land on Round Hill, Janus is one of the most stylish additions to this collection. A stunning four-bedroom villa, Janus was designed to be extraordinarily comfortable and chic. Interiors are enhanced by hand-crafted sculptures and original art. With eponymous views to both the east and west, sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking. 

Encyclopedia Mythica: Janus is the Roman God of gates and doors, beginnings and endings, and hence represented with a double-faced head, each looking in opposite directions.

The main villa takes advantage of the dual views from this specially-selected vantage point.  Total renovation of interiors has achieved a high standard of design with priority also on comfort and service.

Built by the Princess of Lichtenstein, Janus perches atop four acres on posh Round Hill in an excellent gated neighborhood of other glamorous staffed villas.

The spacious grounds are a virtual park of gently rolling land, colorful gardens, soft grass and stately Royal Palms … all completely private. Underground irrigation ensures lush life of this beautiful space.

Downhill is the Tennis Pavilion, a folly capturing the imagination of children and adults alike.  It is a throwback of game tables (chess, checkers, poker), antique Foosball, darts and other icons and games machines from decades past … also bocce ball on the lawn and a 72” Apple TV inside. Here too is a full bathroom with shower and a modern kitchen that includes a 10-burner DCS gas stove, 2 fridge-freezers and ice maker.  The Janus staff can serve dinners for up to 18 guests on the porch, overlooking the professional hard-surface court, lit for night play and bordered by a viewing gallery for onlookers.


Kingsize 4-poster bed, large en-suite bathroom with deep bathtub and open shower.  West bathroom door opens to connecting study and also to passageway to Bedroom 2.
