Crooks Bay, British Virgin Islands
Located above Crooks Bay on the south-eastern coast of Virgin Gorda, this architecturally stunning property provides a sophisticated contemporary lifestyle. Five minutes’ drive from the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour, the main ferry dock, the commercial centre of Spanish Town and the airport, Casa Asombrosa is conveniently located near to shopping, banking and transportation. Stepping into this multi-structure villa, you enter a different world.
Masterfully designed and brilliantly constructed, Casa Asombrosa sets a new bench mark in contemporary living in the islands. From its magnificent two-storey main house and each of the three bedroom suites, there are unobstructed views of the uniquely blue Atlantic Ocean.
Completed in early 2018, Casa Asombrosa comprises two structures: a stunning Main Residence and a spacious Guest House. The symmetrical-design of each house features parallel pillars and straight lines that create balance and order. The Main Residence boasts towering custom-made bi-fold Sapele Mahogany doors that surround the first level and flow out to the pool terrace. Saltillo terracotta floor tiles unite indoor and outdoor spaces so flow is seamless and smooth.
The lower level of the Main Residence is designed with an open floor plan that incorporates the drawing room, dining room and kitchen, and transitions out to the pool terrace. A rectangular lap-pool designed to be perfectly sunny all day and a spacious pool terrace provides plenty room for lounging and entertaining. Off the kitchen is an open-air dining pavilion, topped by an exotic wooden pergola. A more formal dining room is separated from the kitchen by a large island topped with silestone.
Also, on the lower level is the first master suite. It is cleverly designed so both the bedroom and bathroom enjoy beautiful ocean views and there is a private porch. An over-sized closet and artfully decorated bathroom complete this master suite.
The upper level of the Main Residence is accessed by two stairways. One stairway has brightly coloured 6 x 6 inch Talavera tiles, giving an exotic Mexican flair. The other stairway is made of warm mahogany and ascends from the drawing room. On this level, two elegant bedrooms are artfully highlighted with bold colours, wooden louvered windows and oversized doors that lead to private porches and both bedrooms enjoy beautiful ocean views.
The Guest House echoes the modern design of the property with matching columns, brilliant hues, and oversized bi-fold glass doors. The feel of modern sophistication abounds the one-bedroom structure. A wrap-around glass wall allows for enjoyment of a breath-taking view of the Atlantic Ocean. A private entrance and parking area allow for independent living.
