Villa Cerulean is a newly listed for sale four-bedroom modern villa in the Turks and Caicos Islands boasting 118′ of water frontage. Located on Providenciales’ coveted North Shore, within the protected Princess Alexandra National Park and just a short drive to all the amenities offered in Grace Bay. Designed by notable Turks & Caicos architect Simon Wood, President, and CEO of SWA Architects, Villa Cerulean is impeccably designed to maximize the waterfront location and to provide privacy within a multi-level open plan living space. The property is chic and contemporary with exceptional detailing as well as high-end quality finishes. Moreover, the striking aqua blue ocean water can be seen from every room in this beautifully executed luxury villa in the Turks and Caicos complete with a private tidal beach.

As you access Villa Cerulean via the pedestrian entrance bridge directly into the second-floor open plan living space you’re captivated by the extraordinary views of the infinity pool and most notably the ocean blues beyond through the glass facade. The main room opens entirely to the outdoors, with a relaxing water feature on one side and an ocean view terrace overlooking the infinity pool. A protected oceanfront lounging room could be converted into yet another oceanfront bedroom suite. Down at the ocean, past the waterfront seating area and fire pit, there is a tidal beach and snorkeling just off the deck.

In addition to the stunning views in the main living space, all 4 of the spacious bedrooms (all with full en-suite bathrooms) enjoy incredible ocean views with constantly changing multiple shades of blue, green and turquoise over coral heads teeming with aquatic life. Villa Cerulean is a truly unique property that has been meticulously maintained by the owners who have never operated it as a Turks and Caicos rental income property. However, should the new owner choose to, it would be a highly sought-after rental.

Highlights of the magical grounds include a magnificent peony walkway, pumpkin patch, handsome bluestone terraces and enchanting perennial gardens with stone walls. An inground pool and brick patio framed by manicured lawns is the quintessential outdoor entertaining space.

The main residence features 24 rooms with eight bedrooms, six full baths, three powder rooms and ten fireplaces complete with antique mantles spanning three floors; there is also a finished lower level. An attached three-car garage is heated. Eleven foot ceilings throughout the formal rooms on the main floor, marble and limestone flooring as well as 18” walls detailed with intricate plaster moldings all add to the home’s history and timeless elegance.

A marble entry vestibule and inviting foyer welcomes you into the residence. Many of the main floor rooms including the formal living room, dining room and library flow gracefully from the entry foyer. Of special note is the custom hand-painted Chinese Gracie wallpaper in the dining room; an antique chandelier hangs overhead. The formal rooms as well as the more casual garden room and breakfast room all open onto a wrap-around bluestone terrace through French doors. Artfully designed transitional spaces surprise at every turn- a small circular foyer leads into the walnut paneled library- a round marble foyer contains the main staircase that leads upstairs.

The gourmet kitchen is a delight and features cabinetry by the premium cabinet maker Smallbone of Devizes. Floors are detailed with reclaimed floor tiles from France; Carrera marble countertops, classic subway tile backsplash and top-of-the-line appliances are other highlights. An adjoining dining area opens out to a lovely bluestone terrace through French doors while a well-appointed butler’s pantry with subzero refrigerator and two warming drawers adjoins the gourmet kitchen on the other side. A family room, mud room, flower room currently used as an office with a private entrance and two powder rooms complete the main floor.

A tranquil master bedroom suite is located on the second floor and features two fireplaces, octagonal sitting room, private balcony and spa-like en-suite bathroom. There are also four additional bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a sewing room. Completing the second floor is an additional three bedroom, two bath wing and a wrapping room with built-in cabinetry. The third floor features an expansive exercise room, spacious walk-in cedar closet and ample storage areas. Focal points of the finished lower level with handsome coffered ceiling include a generously-sized recreation room with fireplace and a 3,000 bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar.
