Villa Dulcinea

West End, Tortola, $2.5 million

Villa Dulcinea is nestled into the hillside of Belmont Estates at the northwest end of Tortola, high above two of the most stunning beaches on the island, Smugglers Cove and Long Bay Beach. The property is spread across three separate buildings that look out over a broad unobstructed expanse of sea and islands.

The main building houses the living room, dining area, two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and kitchen. A pool deck extends beyond this to the master bedroom building, containing two additional bedrooms. Under the carport is the East Wing, featuring two extra rooms with 10’ ceilings that serve as a media room and library.

Each bedroom is air conditioned and features custom built wood closets and shelving. The four ensuite bathrooms boast their own combination of stone and colourful glass tiles highlighting the different vanities and sinks. The gourmet kitchen is flanked by custom built cabinets, pull out drawers and shelving made of pale yellow stained maple hardwood, and there are also limestone countertops and oversized stainless steel sink.

The pool is a glass tile embedded jewel. A stone staircase can take you from the pool deck to the natural walkway that extends along the entire lower portion of the home. An enclosed stone and glass tile outdoor shower is tucked into the corner of the courtyard. For more information on Villa Dulcine, click here
