‘Arundel Villa’ is a world class resort home nestled high above Cane Garden Bay and the north shores of Tortola. Located at the end of a winding road on Luck Hill, this tastefully built get-away property on almost two secluded acres of land, offers elegance, solitude, cooling breezes and the calming echo of waves gently breaking just below.
Entering through well-designed security gates and a long driveway, the property consists of three pavilions. The main building houses a beautiful kitchen, spacious living room and dining room, plus guest powder room. Large teak framed glass doors open onto terraces at the front and back. Decorated throughout with art, furnishings and treasures collected from around the world there is even a wonderful baby grand piano, and a playful papier-mâché dragon suspended high above the living area.
At the west end of the property is the second pavilion – a separate and intimate master bedroom suite with master bed, en-suite bath with separate lounge area and large covered shower area. On the east side of the main structure a third building houses two lovely guest bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathrooms and small balconies that allows guests to sun themselves with privacy. At the ground level of the guest house is a final guest room with bath.
A large outside terrace and patio feeds off the living/dining room and extends westward overlooking the expanse of the aqua-blue Caribbean and neighboring islands. The L-shaped pool area is beautifully landscaped and decorated. Finally, a Jacuzzi has been added at the end of the deck area as a great treat to enjoy lovely views, gorgeous sunsets, and star-filled evenings.
Home to one of Washington’s most respected attorneys, Lester S. Hyman, many famous people have enjoyed the Villa as personal guests of the owner. US Senator Edward M. Kennedy, wife Vicki, Singer/Pianist Bobby Short, Academy Award Winner Marlee Maitlin (who was married and honeymooned there), Susan Eisenhower, grand-daughter of US President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Advice Columnist Ann Landers, Michael Feinstein, popular singer and pianist, plus, classical pianist Awadagin Pratt to name a few.
‘Arundel Villa’ became a very exclusive and popular vacation rental in the 80’s onwards. New developers and investors may envision Arundel Villa converted into an amazing Spa/luxury retreat for high-end vacationers to the BVI. Alternately, this is a wonderful family compound for winter getaways. A very rare property indeed.
