Rafters is situated in a quiet cul de sac within the exclusive Old Leeward Development directly opposite the Parrot Cay Landing. It is sited on a 1 acre fully landscaped plot facing the canal, with a sculptured pool, large deck and an 80 feet dock with ramp access. From private terraces on the second level, the beauty of the mangroves and small archipelago of cays that link Provo to North Caicos can be viewed. Trade winds sweeping off the 'banks' offer a cooling respite to the tropical conditions.
This villa completed in January 2010 offers 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. All of these beautifully situated spacious rooms offer king size accommodations, three with en suite shower facilities, the master having a side by side jacuzzi bath. Note that three bedrooms have fixed King size beds and that the other three/optional fourth have King size beds that have the option of being made up as twin beds. On the main level is a fully wheelchair accessible king room with en suite wet room, and of course, this room may also be made up as two twins depending on the client's wishes. In addition to the 6 bedrooms, there is also an office that may accommodate two upon request, and two additional beds may be moved into two of the upstairs guest rooms to maximize the full potential of the home. There are TVs in most bedrooms.
There is a family bathroom upstairs with separate shower and jacuzzi bath. Also on the main floor there is separate cloakroom and laundry room with both washer and dryer for the convenience of the guest.
The fully fitted professional kitchen with walk in pantry offers side by side refrigerator with lower drawer freezer, ice maker, dishwasher, microwave/convection oven, professional glass cooktop with electric oven, plus double sink with fantastic views out over the canal! Any meal can be prepared in this kitchen, with full entertaining possibilities.
Large glass sliding doors open up from the Great Room designed to entertain with a 50' television and full music system out onto the exceptionally large pool terrace overlooking the canal. All rooms and outside areas are connected for sound and individually controlled to the entertainment centre, plus Rafters is wired for wireless broadband. Indoor dining is positioned between the kitchen and living area.
Outside there is a large open air kitchen block with large built in gas grill, fridge and ice maker and table for 10-12 people. Around the kitchen area is a sit up bar and included in the block is a wet room and a storage room.
The house is well positioned to be cooled by the Leeward trade winds, but air conditioning is available at cost.
The sun hits the deck virtually the whole day, while setting directly down the canal offering the perfect reason for early sundowners!
Brid & Geof live in South East England with a large family of five children and six grandchildren.
Brid and Geof first visited the island in 1994 and fell in love with it immediately. Knowing that this was the place for them to retire, they soon purchased their property in Leeward, but waited for several years before beginning the design and building process. They knew that a canal property would provide a neighborhood where their children and grandchildren could feel at home, while being able to have their own boat in order to spend time on the water and enjoy all that TCI has to offer. Rafters was completed in January 2010, and Brid and Geoff have enjoyed it thrice already with extended family!
We are within the most prestigious development on the Island, somewhat away from the main hustle and bustle yet close enough to Grace Bay and the necessary shops. The house is on a cul de sac for added security and that neighborhood feel. Rafters faces down the canal for that on water experience, with the sun setting across the terrace for that perfect evening experience. The large sculptured pool with fabulous terrace designed for entertaining is complimented by full outside covered kitchen with table for 10/12 and a sit up bar. This home is the perfect venue for a celebration!
There is also an 80 feet dock with a ramp to pull out a boat. The boat for Parrot Cay leaves from just across the road and many boat excursions leave from two nearby marina facilities.
Big Blue diving and eco water trips and sports is 150 yards from the house. Nautica sports for wake boarding, skiing and other wayer sports is 30 yards from the house. Leeward Marina is 200 yards from the house with bar and cafe.
