Caribbean Delight

Open plan living designed for the tropics with European sophistication and a superb attention to detail all combine to create this intriguing retreat located within 1.46 acres on a private hillside setting on Tortola's south coast

Completed in 2004 Turpentine House was built to an impeccable specification and has been immaculately maintained ever since. It encompasses approximately 3,250 square feet of interior space and 3,860 feet of covered areas. The house has been designed as two pavilions separated by the swimming pool deck and connected by a covered loggia

The main house has the shape of a stretched octagon with dramatically high ceilings. Its majestic open plan Great Room incorporates a gourmet kitchen set at centre stage at a slightly higher level which blends seamlessly into the beautifully decorated living and dining area. A breakfast/BBQ courtyard shaded by a Kabucalli pergola adjoins the rear of the kitchen. The private office loft with companion terrace is accessed by a beautifully crafted wooden staircase. Wide verandas surround the main house and together with the swimming pool deck provide additional areas for relaxation and entertaining.

Across the swimming pool terrace is the second pavilion, which features a spacious master bedroom suite on the upper level while two guest suites occupy the lower level.

Below the main house, a substantial workshop with bathroom could be converted for further private and independent accommodation.

The gated entrance is flanked with lush vegetation and leads to the ample parking area and to the main entrance enhanced by a beautiful hardwood teak doors. Indigenous tropical landscaped grounds surround this elegant home.

The striking beauty of the house lies in the careful choice of the materials all complementary to each other framing the magnificent views. The warmth emanating from the property comes from the rich earthly colours and hues which have been used consistently throughout the house together with the latest interior designing trends. South African slate floors go hand in hand with the tadelak stuccoed walls, painstakingly finished with hand applied wax. Ipe, garapeira and kabukalli woods are complemented by hand made copper light fixtures. No effort was spared in the thoughtful planning of this stunning residence and together with exceptional workmanship has resulted in a property that is unique on Tortola.
