Perhaps the most astonishing feature of Turquoise Dreams, presented by BVI Sotheby’s International Realty, is the ever-changing view of nature’s flow. Wake up in the morning as the sun emerges between the hills of neighbouring islands, visible from your exclusive terrace; admire the sea as it churns and changes colours from pale to deep aqua blue; see the moon rise in the evening when the sky transforms from dawn to dusk…
In the residential estate of Cooten Bay, Turquoise Dreams was built to savour the vistas visible from Tortola’s North East coast. Designed with materials to withstand the test of time in a sun-drenched and sea-salt environment, the contemporary Mediterranean home provides a secure, maintenance-free living experience as it blends with its tropical surroundings.
Upon entering, neutral colours and tasteful decor create a light ambience bestowing a blank template with endless possibilities to redecorate to your desire.
From the entranceway, an open-plan living area with hurricane proof, floor-length glass double doors and high-vaulted cypress wood ceilings extends to a remarkable kitchen area. Ideal for an exhibitionist culinary experience, the kitchen features state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances and fixtures—custom-created by the owner—with ‘River of Gold’ granite countertops, Canadian Maple cabinetry, and an ample walk-in pantry. The large ‘island’ is perfect for serving appetisers and buffet-style meals to impress guests. The bar area which keeps cocktail preparation separate includes a temperate-controlled wine cellar.
Turquoise Dreams represents peace and seclusion, while offering qualities of a ‘stage’ with which to entertain – the kitchen and outdoor amenities would provoke the envy of the most prestigious gourmet chefs.
Surrounding the living area is a spacious covered veranda with al-fresco dining for eight, and additional furnishings for guests to spread out and socialise. The outside dining area includes a built-in barbecue, and lends itself as an outdoor bar or culinary preparation area, as it is well equipped with electrical outlets and room to expand for additional features.
On the uncovered deck, the stainless-steel chaise lounges are perfect for sunbathing, followed by a refreshing dip in the pool, heated with Jacuzzi jets, and variable lighting for changes in ambiance to suit the mood, complete with a waterfall feature. From the terrace, unrivalled views of Guana Island and Great Camanoe extend all the way to Virgin Gorda and The Dogs on the horizon.
Four bedrooms and four and a half en-suite bathrooms cater to guests with deluxe decor and adornments, each with alluring views of the ocean and outdoor access to private balconies.
The master bedroom features a king-size bed with a vanity area and expansive wardrobe space. The en suite bathroom’s extraordinary glass cathedral ceiling allows for basking in sunlight during the day and stargazing at night from the comfort of the romantic, mood enhancing Jacuzzi feature.
The fourth bedroom suite located down a custom stainless stairwell is set apart from the main house. Currently undergoing completion, this space allows the option for redesign to suit your needs—perhaps an office, gym, playroom or even live-in staff member.
Turquoise Dreams was designed so that air consistently travels throughout the premises. As the breeze caresses the well-appointed gardens of palms, fuchsia hibiscus, ixora, and allamandas, it harmonises with the soft roar of ocean waves below.
Rare epic sightings of nature have been reported on occasion, including visits from flamingos to the salt pond behind Josiah’s Bay, large-beaked pelicans plummeting into the water, and even dolphins travelling out to sea, adding excitement to the magnificent panorama.
Situated down a quiet lane just off of the ‘ridge road,’ the villa offers ultimate seclusion, yet is conveniently located a short distance to a variety of amenities in town. It’s central to two undeveloped white sandy beaches as well as very popular surfing locations, including Cooten Bay directly below. The privacy of Lava Flow and Trunk Bay beaches may be reached within a handful of minutes by car, while lively restaurants, eclectic local bars, and even surfing lessons are less than a 10 minute ride to Josiah’s, Brewers, and Cane Garden Bays.
In the category of custom-built luxury accommodations, Turquoise Dreams’ peaceful location and ever-changing views make for the idyllic maintenance-free home to relish the best of paradise.
