More pics to follow shortly
The British Virgin Islands is best known for beautiful sandy beaches and the best sailing waters in the world. Many dream of a beachfront home at the water’s edge yet higher in the hills of Tortola, the expansive ocean, island and sunset views are quite simply breathtaking. And the temperature is just a few degrees more comfortable for all year round living in the mountains than on the beach.
Consider then, “Sage House”, arguably one of the finest Estate homes in the BVI. Nestled within over three acres of dense tropical foliage in the heavens above Cane Garden Bay beach and Long Bay beach, this majestic home provides complete and utter privacy. The expansive views encompass Cane Garden Bay, Long Bay, Jost Van Dyke, the US Virgin Islands and even Puerto Rico on a clear day.
A sweeping driveway winds through the tropical forest, past the barely visible caretaker’s cottage hidden in the hillside, to the entrance of the two storey main house. The main living areas and master bedroom suite are on the upper level, which benefits from high vaulted ceilings throughout. An impressive entrance hallway leads on to the spacious and comfortable furnished great room around which runs a generous covered balcony. A quieter reception room also sits just off the hallway. The kitchen is equipped to the highest of standards, as one would expect in a home that has hosted many a wonderful dinner party in the adjacent dining room and on the entertainment terrace.
A covered pathway leads to the largest comfortable Master bedroom suite with walk in closet and ensuite bathroom. The bathroom can be opened on to a delightful, entirely private secret tropical garden with outdoor shower. Why not?
Descend either the internal staircase to the lower level and the two very comfortable guest bedroom suite, both with their own ensuite bathrooms and with their own reception room. There’s also a spacious entertainment/media/home theatre room. All of which leads out on to the expansive pool terrace and one of the largest private pools in the BVI. Glorious!
Perhaps the most appealing aspect of Sage House is that, whilst clearly it is a grand home, it is at the same time very comfortable and easy to live in. There’s very little wasted space, built for the sake of grandness. Only the highest end of materials have been used throughout its construction. It truly is an exceptionally well designed home.
If you chose to rent out the home when not in residence, then Sage House would be very attractive as a high end vacation home. If you considered the employment of onsite caretakers to be appropriate, as the current owners do, there is a well appointed one bedroom Guest Cottagediscreetly nestled amongst the gardens to provide complete privacy from the main house. The Cottage could also be rented if onsite Property Managers were not required. Regardless, full property management and rental services are available to the new Owners through Coldwell Banker BVI and www.bvivillarental.com.
On the practical front, the home benefits from a large two car garage, well equipped workshop, laundry, back up diesel generator, and large cisterns for water catchment.
