Little Bay, British Virgin Islands
With over a mile of shoreline, Little Bay Estate presents a rare opportunity to own a private beachfront property in North Sound, the premier residential address in the British Virgin Islands. The estate comprises seven acres along the waterfront of Virgin Gorda’s north eastern coastline. While Little Bay is located on the mainland of Virgin Gorda, it is accessible only by boat only, giving the Estate the feel of private island living providing an exclusive North Sound location.
The Estate was acquired by the present owner in 2012 with the property held on a 98 year lease (including option to renew) from the Crown from 2014. The estate consists of two residences: The Beach House and The Guest House at Camelia Point. A paved road links both houses and The Beach Cabana with storage for water sport equipment. There are two docks, the main dock provides secure dockage for multiple boats, and the swim dock, plus a concreted water sport ramp for easy movement of water sports equipment.
The Beach House
The Beach House is situated on the shoreline and only steps away from the beach. It is a beautiful two-storey home that unites classic Caribbean elements with contemporary materials and technology. The two-toned olive-green exterior blends into the background hillside, making the house at one with the surroundings. On both floor levels, approximately 1,327 square feet of covered porches, span the front and beach side of the house. The ground floor porch features an outdoor dining table with seating for eight allowing guests to enjoy the amazing views and cooling trade winds. Encompassing 4,288 square feet, the Beach House has four bedrooms, six bathrooms and a guest powder-room. White oak flooring unites the rooms making them warm and luxurious while a staircase with stainless steel cable railing and white oak treads, connects the upper and lower levels. Interior and exterior walls are plastered cement block with the house designed for the tropical environment including windstorm events.
With 1,500 square feet of covered space, The Guest House has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. From every vantage point the view is stunning with green hills of neighbouring islands, sail boats and yachts, endless blue ocean and sky, provide a delightful and entertaining vista.
Camelia Point Villas
Camelia West has a sleek kitchen with Silestone countertops & under-counter appliances. Also, in Camelia West is one bedroom and a guest bathroom. Covered decks and patios provide for outdoor dining and easy lounging. A laundry room, storage area and cistern are located on the ground level. A stone pathway leads to Camelia East where there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms separated by a covered terrace that is perfect for enjoying morning coffee and the view of sunrise over the North Sound.
Little Bay sits directly across from the islands of North Sound including: Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island and Moskito Island, Eustatia Island, Prickly Pear National Park and Saba Rock Resort. The estate can only be accessed from the sea but is conveniently located close to Leverick Bay Resort and Marina and Gun Creek. The estate is twenty minutes by boat from Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport on Beef Island or 15 minutes’ drive to the airstrip on Virgin Gorda. North Sound, Virgin Gorda has emerged as one of the leading ultra-high end destinations in the Caribbean, with residential developments on Moskito Island and Oil Nut Bay Resort.
