With temperatures hitting record lows throughout much of the country last week, we head to warmer waters this week with a visit to a once-in-a-lifetime home in the British Virgin Islands.
Listed at $15 million, this sprawling estate has been described by luxury magazines like Architectural Digest and Caribbean Travel & Life as “one of the most astonishing homes on earth” – and for good reason. Perched atop a 90 foot rock headland on the Steele Point peninsula, the property reaches all the way down to its own private dock and offers up a 360 degree panorama of ocean, yachts and islands.
The structure itself is a dazzling triumph that recently underwent a 2 year complete refurbishment. Every one of the 5 bedroom suites makes wonderful use of their different spaces to offer up a unique experience. Whether it be outdoor showers, private sun decks or clear views of the islands of St. John, Little Thatch and Great Tobago; the suites are both romantic and inspirational.
While I’d be hard to pressed to ever leave this resort like home, it’s located within easy driving distance from Tortola’s gourmet restaraunts and white sand beaches. Not only is the home close to the heart of Tortola’s nightlife, but it’s a few minutes from the port of entry, which makes arriving via St. Thomas or your own Wolf of Wall Street-esque yacht really simple.
