Casey Bay is a stunning contemporary residence, with brilliance in its architectural design, using the finest materials to frame and enhance the Caribbean landscape surrounding it.
The canopied entrance opens onto a double-height formal living room, which leads on to the informal outside covered living and dining areas complete with wet bar and built-in stainless barbecue. The neutral colors blend seamlessly with the natural materials used in the house and nothing detracts from the view of the sea and distant islands.
In total there are four well-equipped bedroom suites. The Master Bedroom, at the west wing of the property, is beautifully furnished with accent-elements of contemporary art, fine fabrics and superb custom designed woodwork. Large glass-walled showers, indoors and out, combined with a whirlpool full bath tub surrounded with marble against a picture window giving serene views of the sea beyond; a double, marble-topped vanity unit; large shower; separate water closet and two walk-in wardrobes.
A maze of terraced walkways lead from the Master Bedroom to the adjoining guest bedroom, study and main living areas. The additional guest bedroom in the main house has en suite facilities and dressing area with a grand terrace beyond complete with outdoor shower. A modern open office area is situated with views looking out.
The kitchen and dining areas are to the East of the living room and have black, brushed marble surfaces, a large central breakfast bar/prep area and high end appliances.
There are three additional powder rooms, one near the poolside, one near the laundry and one near the main living area.
The infinity edge curved swimming pool is magnificent with inset steps to one side and panoramic views of the channel islands and Atlantic Ocean beyond.
Accessed from a path leading upward and westward from the swimming pool terrace are the two guest casitas. Each house has either king or twin beds, a seating area with kitchenette, en suite bathroom, indoor-outdoor showers and dressing room. Private terraces look out to the sea.
The gardens are planted to form a gentle, natural backdrop to the property.
Also accessed from the swimming pool terrace is the path leading down to the secluded beach below, known as Casey Bay on Virgin Gorda.
