Villa Towanda is one of those properties that captures your imagination. It feels luxurious and familiar at the same time. It is both a retreat and a home and it draws you in on every level. It is a very elegant property that offers stunning views over Long Bay and Smugglers Cove beaches and the outer islands that line the northwestern horizon of Tortola.
This three-bedroom property is built for comfort and the enjoyment of the panoramic views. Offering uninterrupted privacy the property is set deep within the magnificent gardens. On arrival you enter though large mahogany doors that are set into a vine-covered terracotta wall which leads to a stunning courtyard. It is landscaped with flowers and fruit trees and a brick path leads to the main house. At this point you know that you have arrived somewhere very special. The main house pulls you in and has an open living room which has an adjoining well-equipped gourmet kitchen including gas oven, dishwasher etc. There are tiled floors throughout. Large doors with beautiful wooden shutters open up to the porch, the pool and the views beyond.
Upholstered teak sun-loungers offer comfortable seating for lounging and there are spacious decks for BBQ lunches and suppers. The pool provides the center piece for this idyllic space that perfectly blends indoor and outdoor living.
The bedrooms are separate from the living spaces, and each offer a very distinct experience. The textures and finishes vary and they all have a very distinct aesthetic. The first-floor bedroom suite will leave you with the feeling of being in Morocco, with coloured glass lanterns and vibrant colours on all the furnishings. This bedroom has a walk-in closet and large private alfresco shower and a covered porch with ocean views.
Exterior stairs lead up from the pool deck to a separate pavilion that houses the master suite, and then another bedroom is located above lower-level bedroom. Both bedrooms are furnished with beautiful dark custom cabinetry for a clean, polished feel with exotic touches from chandeliers in the bathrooms, wood carvings, local basketry and family heirlooms to a fabulous stone waterfall alfresco shower off the master bath. With another area for 2 sun-loungers located between these 2 suites and ocean views from the decks in front of each suite, Towanda offers a quiet spot for everyone.
There is a private driveway and parking area and exterior storage units and a generator.
The property is selling unfurnished.
