There is a plethora of beautiful properties in the BVI, but on occasion, a realty investor will fall upon a rare architectural feat that boasts stunning individuality; the oceanfront gem that is Katitche Point Greathouse—presented by Maritha Keil of BVI Sotheby’s International Realty—is exemplary of these uniquely distinctive villas.

Built by renowned architect Michael Helm, Condé Nast ranks this retreat as a five-star destination and it truly is like few other private residences or vacation homes on the globe. The word ‘abundance’ does not speak justice when listing the infinite honours and recommendations won by this renowned, architectural masterpiece, including admittance as a Small Luxury Hotels of the World member since 2006.

Prestigious publications ranging from Lifestyle and Luxury Magazine DIVA, Sailing Journal, Vogue, Chico’s, Esquire, and Caribbean Travel & Life, have all featured this glamorous abode; and that’s naming a handful of its immense portfolio.

Used previously as a private home, the owners found that their bookings for vacation use amplified greatly in frequency. Eventually, they built a second home so they could visit Katitche Point when they wished, but allow the popular retreat time for accommodating families and friends, who repeatedly spent time at the ever-popular villa.

Located on the serene island of Virgin Gorda, Katitche Point is surrounded by three tranquil white sand beaches—Pond Bay, Savannah Bay, and Mahoe Bay—elevated above them so the property overlooks the azure-blue sea of Sir Francis Drake Channel.

Smooth paved access brings one to the private drive that permits ample parking space for convenience. An outdoor shower with seating is the first discernible amenity upon entering the property; an enjoyable part of Caribbean lifestyle is stealing every opportunity to enjoy the climate, including bathing time.

The main private wooden gate grants passage into an adorable courtyard of gardens and tasteful metal sculptures by famous artist Jörg Siegele. With hypnotising vistas overseeing this space, the grand home is situated across several pods and connected with covered and uncovered patios, inspiring comfort and security.

A bird’s eye perspective of the property reveals Great Pyramid style roofs, offering airy high ceilings which encourage excellent air circulation for all inside.

Entering the three-storey main house, a dining area, lounging space, and vast teak kitchen with wrap around seating leading to the gourmet chef station, create a fantastic social hub. The kitchen’s pass-through window to bar stools by the exterior horizon-edge pool, allow for the scents of delicious cuisine to travel outside and tantalise the senses.

A more equipped kitchen with state of the art appliances would be challenging to find in the BVI – among the utensils, one will even discover a bread maker, a pasta maker, and the torch needed to light the sugar on top of crème brûlée. Custom fitted, full length pull-out shelving for condiments, dishes, and cutlery keep the kitchen neat and ordered.

Moving into the central area of the great room, the 50-foot cathedral ceiling presents multilevel space with two higher tiers – a TV and playroom for children, and a meditative ‘crow’s nest’ (entertainment/ library space) with area for lounging on the third floor – there is also a hall of fame where multiple magazine covers and honours decorating Katitche Point’s service to the vacation villa industry, are on exhibition. Due to the perceptive design, the top level vented windows admit a gentle air flow throughout the property.

Surrounding Katitche Point, dramatic views are bestowed in all directions of beach, sky, and ocean; one can see Tortola, Scrub Island, Great Camanoe, Beef Island, and the Dogs with a delightful night display of thousands of stars decorating the sky. Dining for 12 – 14 among the multitude of indoor and outdoor seating areas include hammocks, porch swings, and al fresco dining, conferring a pleasant image of entertaining large social gatherings, comprising friends or extended family – an amicable attribute of properties represented by BVI Sotheby’s International Realty.

Six elegant bedroom suites across the separate buildings—one master suite—cherish private verandas, enveloping the courtyards of lush tropical vegetation and swaying palms. Walk-in wardrobes and lounging baths offer each guest bedroom ultimate luxury. The master suite gifts residents with a living room, a small kitchen breakfast bar with a sink cleverly designed within an armoire wardrobe cabinet, and a secluded outdoor bath and shower; a rejuvenating haven among a massage area with a private hot tub nestled in the greenery.

The overflowing horizon edge pool complete with stone-fish fountains, contribute to the overwhelming beauty of the living experience. Singles who treasure privacy or romantic couples who want a quiet retreat can easily find a secluded spot with the sheer amount of exclusive areas.

The property’s accessibility to Virgin Gorda and beyond is ideal; there’s a communal dock which comes with the estate, and Savannah and Mahoe Bay beaches are within walking distance on paved trails that merge with sandy paths for the final few yards. The choice of water sport activity is only limited by imagination – there is excellent snorkelling, kayaking, and diving to be had, all in close proximity.

The nearest marinas offer grocery shopping, and there are multiple options for fine or casual dining located throughout the Valley, Leverick Bay, Gun Creek, YCCS, or North Sound.

The property has potential to have its own dock built should a future owner want to invest; but on the contrary, an investor would be pleased to relish the Caribbean sunshine that regularly blesses Katitche Point without altering a single detail.
