Perched 600-ft. high on the Towers Estate hillside above Ft. Recovery on the desirable West End, Paradise offers breath-taking views of Norman Island, St. John, St. Thomas, Soper's Hole at West End, and Jost Van Dyke. Those who visit Paradise are amazed at the expanse of the vista. Local residents have described Paradise as the best view on Tortola. Looking over the turquoise and blue waters of the Sir Francis Drake channel offers ever changing movements of boats going up and down the channel. The view looks over the first mountain range of St. John into Coral Bay and on clear days St. Croix is seen in the distance. Sunsets are spectacular from this secluded location, and at night the sound of the tree frogs lulls guests to sleep. The lights of the other islands in view twinkle at night providing a beautiful view in the dark. The stars abound in the nighttime sky above Paradise.
This new home in a gated community offers tropical leisure and comfort on both levels with wrap around balconies on both floors. It is decorated with the colorful Caribbean in mind---yellows, greens, raspberry, and blues. The white wicker and furniture come alive with the bright splashes of tropical colors used throughout. The decor speaks fun, happy, and relaxed. The owner is an artist and has put her special touches on the home.
The entire home opens onto the pool and deck area, which has covered dining space. The living area doors slide back into the walls making the interior space one with the outdoor dining and pool deck. The infinity edge pool gives the illusion of merging with the water in the distance. The house is carved into the granite mountainside and local stonework is featured on the front entrance walk to the home and the pool deck. A gas grill waits on the deck for preparation of casual meals. An LCD TV and surround sound system allow guests to enjoy their favorite music both inside and outside on the deck/pool area.
The master bedroom suite is on the main level along with the dining/living/kitchen area and a powder room for guests. The second floor has two guest suites, each with large private baths and double sinks. One guest room has a king bed, and one has two queen beds. An office with Wi-Fi and Fax receiving capability is also located on the second floor. Both guest suites have balconies with rocking chairs for morning coffee, afternoon reading, or view of the glorious island sunsets. If the weather is hot, all bedrooms and office are air-conditioned. Every room has ceiling fans to capture and stir the continuous tropical breezes.
Paradise provides all the amenities of home--modern appliances and laundry equipment, Wi-Fi, and LCD TV-DVD with surround sound. It is a short drive over the hill to Smugglers Cove and Long Bay, two of the island's prettiest beaches. The West End is a private, quiet area of the island yet only a short distance away to good beaches, restaurants, and the ferry dock.
Note: Paradise is not a home suitable for small children as the pool and living area are open and the home is on a mountainside.
