Single Family Homes
Comfortably perched and overlooking Sir Frances Drake Channel rests this 4 bedroom private residence complete with professional office and gym or guest room opposite an extended 50 foot horizon edge lap pool. The southern views toward Norman and St. John Islands are simply spectacular as one gazes from the many covered decks or extended lawn gardens.
Travertine tile and beautiful hard wood floors accentuate the overall high quality of finishes found in this sprawling two level private residence. An extremely spacious living room with equally comfortable dining area combine to form a great room with pass through opening into the kitchen with a separate pantry and laundry room. Attached to the living room on the main floor area is a large private office and guest bathroom. Although currently used as an office and library with beautiful mahogany and teak shelving and desk, this room can easily double as a forth bedroom if required. A grand spiral staircase leads past the main floor dining area to the upper floor three bedrooms where a grand master bedroom, walk-though wardrobe, grand en suite full bath and small covered balcony await the contented home owner. The two guest bedrooms both share a full bath located at the end of the open hallway. Across from the lawns outside the well equipped kitchen extends an elongated lap pool perfect for the cross fit trainer who may wish to swim laps and/ or work out in the small gym or pool room which also easily can be used as a fifth guest studio complete with full bath.
The home was designed by the talented architect, Kate Acland about 20 years ago, as a family home. This sophisticated residence is truly one of the best homes in the BVI, offering breezes, ocean views and ease of ten minute access to town, ferry terminals, marinas and pristine white sandy beaches. This property offers a charming Mediterranean flavor to a structurally sound Caribbean home. Arched windows and double French doors add a special touch to the reinforced concrete masonry walls specifically designed to withstand inclement weather and will endure the test of time.
Rarely does one find this level of sophistication and quality of construction in such a charming yet spacious family home."

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.
