Steele Point, Tortola, west end - 4 bedroom villa
Nestled in lush tropical gardens over 100 feet above sea level, this unique and totally private villa is situated on prestigious Steele Point, an exceptional private peninsular estate which crowns Tortola's West End.
The Gestalt's charm begins to work its magic as you enter via the stone walkway through a flowering garden courtyard surrounded by lofty palm trees. This just-remodeled and completely updated home features open-air Mediterranean architecture showcasing stunning living and dining areas on two levels, where elegant furnishings lend a stylish tropical air incorporating cool tiled floors, a grand mahogany dining table, and where shady seclusion looks out to verdant plantings and serene ocean views. A brand-new gourmet kitchen has just been installed, featuring an arched pass-through to a counter lined with bar stools.
The adjacent bedroom wing with its four screened, air-conditioned bedrooms and four baths overlooks the very private pool and a large sun deck with cushioned teak patio furniture and a hammock. A private trail leads down to The Gestalt's oceanside dock for diving and snorkeling.
Masterfully designed to combine maximum livability with style and unparalleled privacy, The Gestalt may also be combined with Steele Point villa, 1/3 mile down the Estate road, and/or with next-door Blackbeard's Hideaway (a new 2-bedroom villa on Steele Point Estate), to accommodate up to 22 persons.
