Sugar Cane's colors reflect nature and tranquility, seemingly absorbing the raw beauty from right outside the windows in one of Tortola's most prestigious neighbourhoods. A large lot, with local-stone faux ruins, brick courtyards, and a pathway lined with endemic vegetation, the construction was supervised by one of the islands finest architects, Michael Arneborg, with more than 30 years of experience in the British Virgin Islands. Built from traditional construction materials, but to a much higher standard than the usual, this house accentuates, instead of detracts from, its indigenous settings.
The house features an open-concept living and dining room, gourmet kitchen and great room. The Master Bedroom and en suite bath, complete with outside stone shower and indoor Jacuzzi, are near the main living areas and decks. The kitchen features high-end stainless steel appliances and plenty of counter space with open cabinets overhead. Large French doors open to beautiful and professionally designed courtyards with a barbecue patio. The combination of reclaimed Old Chicago Brick within the faux ruin stonewalls, is reminiscent of the colonial period. A vented cathedral ceiling allows better airflow and heat reduction. Downstairs there are three additional rooms; one bedroom with en suite full bath; a private sitting room; and an office and pump room. Beautiful grey-green slate tile accentuates the artistically custom-laid floors throughout the home.
The house was placed on the corner of the lot among mature trees in a way that allows expansion of the living areas. There is ample room for a pool and extra buildings, depending on the future owner's needs and desires. The property has many established trees, traveler palms, and other indigenous growth which require no irrigation. There is a small, optionally irrigated, garden in the courtyard.
This perfect little cottage also offers paths leading down to the beach at Smuggler's Cove.
The history of the British Virgin Islands (BVI) is the stuff of epic tales. Norman Island, at the southern tip of the chain, is said to be the setting for Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island.” Nearby caves once hid riches plundered by pirates. The ocean floor is a graveyard for sunken ships.Read more about luxury homes in British Virgin Islands
