Serenity at Luck Hill ID#:JO938
A stunning island home in a tropical setting close to beaches and amenities yet in a quiet and completely private corner of Luck Hill with no other houses in sight! Serenity has incredible 180 degree views extending from the West out to Jost Van Dyke and beyond down the Western side of Tortola and the USVI and then extending North and East giving a birds eye view over the reef and beach at Brewers Bay. Approached via a private driveway through a very well established wooded and tropical setting, the house is set on a point with unbroken vistas and total privacy in a 0.65 acre lot.
Serenity comprises 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a large great room with open plan kitchen and dining area with a wrap around balcony to maximize the incredible views. The main accommodation is arranged over one floor with the 3rd bedroom and en suite bathroom being situated downstairs, making it an ideal room for a guest.
Constructed from hard wood the house has dramatic vaulated ceilings, and floor to ceiling hurricane proofed glass from which to enjoy the view at every angle. Serenity has been very well maintained by the current owners and is painted in sensitive muted tones so as to blend in to its landscape and enjoy the natural beauty of the lush tropical planting, boulders and stone walls completing the setting.
The attractive design of the house is in its apparent simplicity and understated yet luxurious finish, however the owners have ensured that this simplicity also combines the best of hard wearing materials with hurricane proof infrastrure making the cottages absoltuley safe and secure against storms and harsh weather. The stunning and rich looking tropical wood, Greenheart, used throughout the construction (also know as Brazillian Walnut or Embuya) is not only beautiful to the eye, but known for its hard wearing durability and rot resistance, making it ideal for the harsh sun and sea air conditions of the islands and able to stand up to storms when they hit. The vaulted ceilings of each cottage have also been constructed with post and beam with hot dipped galvanized steel fasteners making them the strongest design for both hurricane and earthquakes along with the roof system which surpasses the wind loading capacity of any other residential building on Tortola!
and in keeping with a Caribbean home with large covered porches, and open living with the emphasis being on the outdoor space, and stunning views, yet with options for indoor and outdoor dining. Care has also been given to the high quality construction and finish of every aspect of the house with expensive materials, appliances and comforts combined with a confident simplicity that exudes luxury yet feels like home.
The wood is greenheart, also called tropical walnut, Brazilian walnut or embuya.
I would also mention, the type of post and beam construction with hot dipped galvanized steel fasteners, is the strongest existing for both hurricane and earthquake.
The wind- loading capacity of our roof-system surpasses any other residential building on Tortola.
Beside the house is a level lawned area and steps lead down to a stunning swimming pool with dramatic far reaching views and plenty of space from which to catch the evening sunset from.
Situated in Luck Hill, just a short drive from two of the island’s most beautiful sandy beaches, Cane Garden Bay with it’s bars and restaurants and point break for surfers, and Brewers Bay with it’s fabulous beach walks and snorkeling. Town is just 12 minutes drive over the hill, so its location is ideal for someone seeking a full time residence in the BVI or vacation home.
