House for sale in Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands
This ideally situated property is located at the southern tip of Virgin Gorda above the famous Baths. Sea views are available from the Atlantic in the east to the Sir Francis Drake Channel, Tortola, and sunsets in the west. The land is dramatically strewn with the enormous boulders that are such a notable feature of the southern part of the island. Shops, restaurants, and the large yacht harbor operated by Little Dix Bay, a luxury resort, are a short drive away in the small village of Spanish Town. There are five exceptionally beautiful beaches within walking distance. They offer soft white sand, clear azure water, and great snorkeling. This property has a unique private access to the Baths beach. An unusually large property for the area, this 5.4 acres (approx) offers a rare opportunity to own some of the most naturally spectacular real estate available anywhere. The property has been improved with an extensive infrastructure including systems for water catchment as well as connection to public water supply. Mature trees, its location nestled among boulders, and undeveloped "buffer zones" of property contribute to a luxurious sense of privacy. The open lawn area with views of the Caribbean and Atlantic and caressed by steady, gentle trade winds presents a significant investment opportunity for high-end development. Integrated into the landscape is a dramatic swimming pool built into a corral of boulders incorporating a cave and waterfall feature. An ecologically sensitive villa opens to gentle trade winds with a great room paved in smooth black stones. Three rustically elegant separate bed bath pavilions linked by garden pathways orbit the great room. A wooden walkway blazes a trail through enormous boulders and primeval-looking vegetation to the Baths beach. Along the way are places to take in the breathtaking view of Sir Francis Drake Channel. The villa enjoys a high rate of occupancy as a weekly vacation rental. A second villa occupies another area of the property. A two-story plantation style "grand cottage" comprising 3600 square feet with wrap around porches on both floors offers cozy, airy comfort and charm.
