Luxury Outlook 2022
An ambitious exploration into high-end residential markets across the globe.
A Masterful collaboration between the developer of Oil Nut Bay, and legendary architect Ken Kao, Lion Heart represents an unparalleled vision in luxury island living. 12.55 acres of a lush expanse of green and dramatic rocky cliffs which unfolds in undulating patterns against the backdrop of a turquoise Caribbean Sea in Virgin Gorda, the British Virgin Islands. Lion Heart features two built and furnished villas, Halo and Rainbow, and is designed to house an additional four guest villas from 1-3 bedrooms each. Both curved and flat rooflines follow the rise and fall of the landscape, and a remarkable 7,450 SF green roof brims with native flora, enhancing the villa's seamless integration into the island's topography. Lion Heart's elevated cliffside position offers unrivaled 270-degree panoramic views of the sea, resort, and neighboring islands- Necker and Anegada- as well as sweeping views of the entire coastline of Virgin Gorda. The approach to Lion Heart is marked by an impeccable stonewalled drive that emerges out of the natural terrain. Once inside the villas, unique architecture and immaculate design ensure that interior and exterior spaces blend seamlessly together.
HALO MAIN VILLA
Halo's organic design was built in harmony with the land, following Oil Nut Bay's vision to make the land as much of a feature as the home. The seamless integration of native stone, steel, glass, green roof, and infinity pool with a custom native stone boulder waterfall show cases the developer’s unwavering passion for cutting-edge design, quality craftsmanship, and exceptional attention to detail. Towering walls of glass windows and doors on all sides are operated automatically to slide open with ease and invite the outdoors in. Bespoke gardens spill out onto the grounds of the villas and feature a variety of plant species. Private upper and lower expansive patios make for an effortless transition to and from the natural environment. Spanning 8,021 SF+/- (745.2 square meters) of dynamic living space, the contemporary estate is replete with a well-thought-outdesign and custom furniture designed by Roche Bobois. An expansive great room features palatial 18' (5.5 meters) ceilings, while an open concept chef's kitchen boasts custom Italian cabinetry and a backlit onyx custom counter facade.
RAINBOW GUEST HOUSE
Lion Heart's compound setting offers the unique opportunity to expand upon the principal and guest residences with the capacity to accommodate up to four additional guest villas 1-3 bedrooms each, known on site as Rainbows. The Lion Heart property and its possibilities for expansion represent the exceptional way in which Oil Nut Bay continues to foster the creative vision of its residents.

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.
