Occasionally you find one of those rare properties that is truly magazine worthy- one where you almost feel as if you have fallen into the glossy pages of Architectural Digest as you enter the home. Turpentine House is exactly that and we are proud to include it as one of our listings for sale. It was a project where the owners took painstaking care when building to get every last detail perfect and the culmination is a refined and sophisticated dwelling unlike any other. A private driveway with lush foliage leads you up to the residence whose vibrant ochre walls immediately invite you to enter. Opening the oversize teak double wooden front door (which was hand carved in Indonesia) you look onto the infinity edge pool and inner courtyard. The pool has a waterfall overflow feature and beyond it are stunning views of the Sir Francis Drake Channel. On the right are the three bedrooms and on the left is the living pavilion. The dramatic pitched roofs on both units and the covered patio between are covered in pine shingles. The dramatically high ceilinged living pavilion consists of the living and dining room with an elevated kitchen which leads to a magical exterior kitchen and dining area. The outdoor kitchen is extremely charming with open arches, polished concrete countertops, a BBQ and a sink area. All appliances in the main kitchen are top end and the countertops polished concrete. The entire house has French stucco walls which were meticulously done by hand and slate tile flooring sourced from South Africa. A wonderful personal touch are the unique copper light fixtures throughout the property which are made by the artist owners. Above the kitchen/ dining/ living is an open loft, currently used as an office and is reached by a floating wooden staircase which encircles around a massive Kabukalli wooden beam. It also has a balcony which looks onto the outdoor kitchen. The porch which starts inside the courtyard, wraps all the away around the living pavilion to the outside kitchen space. There is a guest bathroom located off of the courtyard and living space. All the bathrooms in the house are very spacious and have polished concrete vanities and rain-head showers. The bedroom pavilion has two guest suites on the pool level, both with their own en suite bathrooms. They are accessed from another covered patio which also starts inside the inner courtyard. The laundry room is also on this level. Upstairs is the very private master suite which takes up the entire top level. It has all the bells and whistles one could want- a large walk in closet, double sinks and an enormous double shower definitely meant for sharing. A private balcony looking out onto the turquoise waters below completes the floor. At many points around the home are various seating areas, some for two and some for groups. One of the most charming is a built in banquette in the inner courtyard area with brightly colored throw cushions and ottomans to put your feet up on. The jewel in the center of the inner courtyard is the pool which is surrounded by an Ipe wood deck- perfect for sunbathing in utter privacy. The pool has a shallow seating platform with spa jets to truly make the experience as pampering as possible. There is a huge workshop under the home which could easily be made into a self sufficient apartment. It has a half bathroom and has high enough ceilings to add a loft. Beyond this are the three cisterns, totaling 40,000 gallons.

Nestled amongst the boulders for which Virgin Gorda is famous, within the Princess Quarters Residential Estate, Casablanca was designed and built by a couple that has spent over 30 years managing one of the BVI's most luxurious private Estate Homes. What is clear from the design and finish quality of Casablanca is that they learned a thing or two along the way! Their home is absolutely stunning. Its a cliche but the moment you enter this delightful property, not only does the view take your breath away, so too does the incredible intention to detail and quality of almost everything about this home. The owners picked the spot with good reason. Experience taught them that this lot, which is just under half an acre, benefits from a great breeze, complete privacy and truly expansive views. It is also only five minutes from Virgin Gorda's most spectacular sandy beaches, the Baths, and virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour where they keep their boat, do their banking and stop up on groceries. Speaking of which, there's even a dumb waiter leading from the spotless garage ( its frustratingly well organised all the time!) directly to the kitchen so no lugging groceries up the stairs. In its entirety the home comprises approximately 3,400 square feet of interior space and around 2,300 square feet of covered and open-air terraces. On the upper, main living level, the entranceway leads to a spacious open plan living, kitchen and dining area, which in turn leads onto a very large shaded pool deck, with outdoor dining area, shaped for the most part from the sun. It really is difficult to truly blend indoor/outdoor living any better than it ha been done here. Infinity edge pools were created for locations just like this! From in the pool, it really creates a delightful illusion that it carries on into the sea beyond. On the same level is an exceptionally spacious master bedroom suite with large master bathroom featuring double sinks and well though out walk in closets. On this level there is also an office and,just off the kitchen, a very useful larder. Featuring a magnificent timber countertop, the kitchen further benefits from European styling and top notch appliances. The lower level comprises two guest bedrooms, with ensuite bathrooms sharing a covered terrace equipped with a kitchenette and surrounded by lush garden greenery. A beautiful new pool and pool deck have just been completed. What is effectively a self contained apartment provides guests and owners alike with plenty of privacy and can be accessed via its own separate driveway. Also down below there is garage/workshop (did we mention how annoyingly tidy and well organised it is?!) a store/tool room, and small but well equipped gym. The very well established tropical gardens are nothing short of exquisite. Many of the plantings, such the magnificent Royal Palms, were grown by the owners from seed before construction of the home had even begun. A desire to create the 'tropical jungle look' rather than manicured beds, was the inspiration and the result is captivating.
