Point House, a Balinese-inspired sanctuary on the private island of Parrot Cay in the Turks & Caicos Offered for US$15,000,000
Architect Cheong Yew Kuan, who designed residences for Donna Karan and Keith Richards, created a home of understated elegance inspired by tropical splendor
New York, New York (June 4, 2019) — Nestled among the natural splendor of this famed and highly sought-after private island of Parrot Cay in the Turks & Caicos archipelago is the magnificent Point House estate. The property rises organically and majestically from its pristine and coveted island setting to become one with its rarified environment. Point House is one of only 12 exclusive and ultimately private estates located to the southwest side of the island and enjoys its own secluded cove.
Adjacent to an expansive nature reserve with unobstructed views of the famed crystalline waters and spanning more than 7,000-square-feet, the estate is thoughtfully designed to integrate interior and exterior living experiences through vast floor to ceiling glass windows, and doors framed in beautifully finished white oak allowing the allure of the island’s natural beauty to cascade gently throughout.
Point House is offered by Robert Greenwood, broker and partner and Hazel Rush, luxury real estate specialist of Regency Realty, the exclusive Affiliate in Turks & Caicos, with global marketing services provided by Christie’s International Real Estate.
Rick Moeser, executive director of Christie’s International Real Estate, said “We are excited to be working with Regency on this stunning property on the storied island of Parrot Cay. The world-renowned architect Mr. Kuan is based in Singapore and Bali. All of his projects around the globe, including high-end residences and hospitality properties, such as the Four Seasons in the Seychelles and a COMO resort in the Maldives, are infused with an Asian sense of serenity and oneness with nature. Point House is no exception.”
Upon entering the light-filled villa of restorative calm, the oversized windows reveal the inviting waters of the pool, paved in unique lava stone from Bali, and the ocean’s turquoise blue and green waters beyond. The decking of subtle weathered grey leads to a sequestered beach with powdered sugar sand. The interior’s soothing white stone floors and natural wood finishes, in contrasting hues of ebony and oak, are the foundation of the minimalistic design aesthetic and ideal for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.
The open living plan with multiple seating areas and a dining room large enough for a 12-foot- long table, is served by a fully equipped kitchen with an oversized island and high-end appliances, ideal for a private chef’s tasting menu. The main level includes two bedrooms with private baths, with limestone showers and handcrafted sunken tubs, complemented by landscaped outdoor showers. A third bedroom on the first floor with bath can be easily converted to a media room, office or playroom.
A fourth bed and bath, located in a loft overlooking the main living areas below and drinking in the expansive water views, is further appointed with a rooftop terrace. A shuttered indoor balcony provides space with privacy while inviting the flow of cooling ocean breezes. The fifth bedroom is nestled in the property’s botanical gardens and could be reimagined as a private residence for a nanny or staff, or converted into a gym, art or yoga studio.
Mr. Greenwood said, “For many years, Parrot Cay has been a special and magical island to me. I have had the privilege to work with several clients who have become part of the Parrot Cay family of estate owners. Now representing the exceptional Point House Estate, we look forward to sharing its beauty and that of this exquisite private island through the Christie’s International Real Estate network and ultimately introducing Point House to its new owner.”
Residents of Parrot Cay are welcome to enjoy the amenities of neighboring COMO Resort, also designed by Mr. Kuan, with its world-renowned spa, in-residence wellness specialists and healthful cuisine served in three restaurants. Further resort facilities include a pool bar, two upscale boutiques, a kid’s club and a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment.
