Imagine driving up the tropical hillside of your secluded community, feeling a sense of peace and security as you navigate your way through green surroundings. As you pull up to your driveway, step out, and walk through your private gate and up the steps, tranquillity washes over you as you approach the stunning palatial retreat which you now call home.
Cohoba House, presented by BVI Sotheby’s International Realty, is a prime location to embrace the panoramic beauty of the British Virgin Islands.
The house is a modern and recently renovated ‘turn-key’ property constructed to create a functional space adorned with furnishings and decor appealing to all tastes. Its location set high in the hills of Tortola’s West End, is part of the residential community Belmont Estate, which offers homeowners the composure they seek while embracing the island climate.
The refreshing white exterior reflects the sun, delivering an elegant, contemporary ambiance with stone ruin walls featured adding historic character. Coral tiles with intricate fossil designs add to the home’s feel of beach-side luxury, along with Mahogany shutters, modernising the traditional Caribbean-style home.
Cohoba is a property fit for entertaining; its spacious patio affords multiple seating areas with a refreshing breeze to be enjoyed whilst overlooking the panoramic vistas of the tranquil blue sea. Here you will relish expansive views of Jost Van Dyke, from Sandy Cay extending to Cane Garden Bay, with prime visibility looking over Long Bay Beach, and down to the Belmont Peak where on occasion, flamingos can be spotted in the salt pond below.
Alfresco dining can be relished on a rustic wooden dining table, and cocktails enjoyed while sun-bathing on loungers beside the 24 foot swimming pool.
Meticulously maintained gardens with Bougainvillea flowers and climbing vines surround this outdoor living space, with potted plants containing a mix of local and imported flora. Throughout the grounds are opportunities to retreat in privacy with several hidden spots to relax among large palm trees and exotic vegetation.
The living room features light colours and high ceilings with peaceful natural lighting from both the sky-lights and the windows which overlook the ocean. Lounging in this cosy seating area is enhanced by the option of engaging in some TV downtime on a 40” flat screen television.
Unique to Cohoba, the gas grill is located in an indoor cooking area which separates the living room from the kitchen. Cooking is made easy and enjoyable with a full range of brand new modern appliances, a convenient ‘island,’ and a bar area to make cocktails before the grand feast is served.
Formal dining is made optional in the dining room with a round table seating eight beneath a tree branch chandelier, in a room which boasts bold colonial colours of deep red and ochre yellow, playing tribute to the island’s rich history. On the main floor is a half bathroom and outdoor shower to rinse off after a day spent at the beach.
The main house features two bedrooms: a lavish master suite with a king size bed on the top floor, and a smaller cosy bedroom with a queen bed below. A separate study and TV area marks the entrance of the master suite at the top of the staircase, and inside is a spacious ensuite bathroom with double sinks.
An additional two bedrooms are located in a separate guest house, each with a king size bed and an area with an espresso machine and mini bar; they share a private balcony providing a view of neighbouring island Jost Van Dyke. All the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and are adorned with deluxe furnishings and tasteful decorations, with crisp white linens for peaceful rest.
Equipped with the latest modern technologies, wireless internet is available throughout the house, and a surround sound system can be played through the main house, master suite, and outer deck area. Personal music systems are also featured in each of the other bedrooms, along with infinite outlets placed in convenient areas to plug in additional entertainment devices.
Cohoba is located only a 15 minute walk or five minute drive away from Smugglers Cove, a quaint white, sandy beach offering prime snorkelling opportunities. It is also a short drive from Long Bay Beach, famous for its mile long shore of sparkling turquoise water and white sand, lined with exotic palm trees.
Those who reside in the Belmont Estate relish the best of both worlds, as they enjoy seclusion whilst still being in close proximity to popular amenities. Your new home will be a five minute drive from Soper’s Hole Marina, with a variety of dining establishments, shops, and services including the West End Ferry Dock.
Cohoba was renovated to be the dream home of any new owner who enjoys the best of paradise. The incredible makeover was a creative project of its current owner, who is pleased with her final masterpiece and excited to pass over the keys to those who wish to delight in its beauty for years to come: “We love Cohoba and hope someone who can sit still longer than we can will enjoy it.”
