Description


A unique opportunity to build and own a Caribbean dream home on Virgin Gorda, overlooking the yachting paradise of the North Sound. Blunder Bay is an estate of generously divided building plots, serviced by state-of- the-art infrastructure and sustainable estate facilities, including exclusive docks.

Blunder Bay Location
Blunder Bay is some 21 acres of flawless unspoiled beachfront land on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, currently only accessible by boat. The stretch of tranquil water beside it is North Sound, and the view to sea is of super yachts and boats gliding among neighboring islands of Mosquito, Eustacia and Sir Richard Branson’s island home, Necker.

The Development

The land has been thoughtfully divided into 10 building plots, each one with its own special character from being right on the white sand beach to having its very own dock a few feet away. The plots are now for sale to potential home owners to design and build their luxury dream villa. This real estate comes with a Crown Leasehold of 99 plus 99 years which is the BVI’s equivalent to freehold.

Having divided the land into desirable plots, Blunder Bay Estates is now working on the infrastructure including a 12 berth marina, four unique docks, a distinguishing road within the estate, a helipad, beach facilities and utilities using the most advanced technology and providing the most up to date systems.

Resident Management Team

Blunder Bay will have a resident management team with manager’s house and office on site. Staff will be experienced and qualified yacht masters, knowledgeable in BVI culture, have para medical training and organise a full concierge service, house and estate management, and a villa rental programme should home owners want to rent out their property.

Blunder Bay Marina

The Blunder Bay Marina will be the central hub for all marine activity. Boats and yachts are a part of everyday BVI life, whether it’s a day of blue water sailing, a few days exploring the islands’ beautiful bays and anchorages or popping out to local amenities. The Blunder Bay Estates marina and exclusive docks are designed to give easy access to shore power, water, and fibre optic connections for TV and internet. The management team will also organise professional yacht cleaning and maintenance services when required.

Outdoor Facilities

Part of the real estate luxury lifestyle is to have your needs catered for beyond the front door as much as in the house. Blunder Bay Estates is building top quality outdoor facilities, pristine beach, a nature reserve, marina and unique docks, nearby mooring balls, barge ramp facilities, seabed moorings, a swimming platform, an independent road and a helipad.
Blunder Bay Beach

A pristine crescent of pure white sand with majestic palms – the beach is perfect for swimming, sunbathing or just watching the yachts sail along the horizon, and the estate’s home owners are steps away from it all. A barbecue, pizza oven and recreational pavilion are facilities planned for the beach.

The brilliant clear water makes it ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving – whether it’s the adventure of diving to a shipwreck or swimming in the protected waters of Blunder Bay, the estate team have the experience and knowledge to help with organizing the perfect day on the beach.
Unique docks

Building lots 1, 2, 3 and 4 have individual docks measuring 80ft long by 8ft wide. Residents living on these lots will have doorstep access to all of their personal water craft and will be able to set sail from their own dock to explore the British Virgin Islands’ natural beauty.
Barge ramp facilities

There is a three acre secured staging area next to the barge ramp at the southern end of the estate, adjacent to the marina. Building materials for individual homes can be delivered to it and stored until needed.

North Sound – the stretch of water adjacent to Blunder Bay – is a popular spot for fishing and diving. To protect the reef from any damage, we are installing mooring buoys, often used in the BVI as an alternative to anchoring which can break and damage the coral reef. The buoys also act as markers for areas that are regulated, and help with navigation.
Swimming platform

The swimming dock and platform will be perfect for swimming and sunbathing.
Independent road

Blunder Bay is only accessed by boat or helicopter. Transit points are Gun Creek and Leverick Bay via the North Sound or from Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour, Trellis Bay or Beef Island. The independent road within the Blunder Bay Estate, runs from the main dock on the south side of the estate up to the north side. The 12ft wide concrete road with passing lay-bys will give home owners access to their site from within the estate. Colour pigmented to blend into the surrounding vegetation, the road will be landscaped along its entire length, and carefully excavated boulders will be reused as design features.
Nature reserve

An additional three acres of land have been leased from the BVI government for use as a storage area during development. Once building work has completed the area will become a wild life nature reserve for residents to explore the island’s natural ecology.
Helipad

Construction of a helipad is underway for the use of Blunder Bay residents to fly in from Puerto Rico, St Thomas, Tortola and St Maarten.
