Sotheby's International Realty - Cooper Island

Here is a rare opportunity to purchase a unique oceanfront outer island home, built to withstand all types of wind and weather. This private oceanfront villa on the north eastern tip of Cooper Island in the British Virgin Islands, Quart- A-Nancy Point, is an exceptional waterfront property set on 2.75 acres of land, complete with private dock. The property overlooks Manchioneel Bay and the Sir Francis Drake Channel with spectacular 180 degree western facing views of the Caribbean sea. There are at least six adjacent islands visible from the open air dining and living areas; Tortola, Peter Island, Salt Island, St John, and St Thomas are all visible toward the west and north. Ginger Island and Virgin Gorda can be seen to the east side of the property, and St Croix often peeks over the horizon to the south. Quart-A-Nancy Point is ideally located in the middle of the British Virgin Islands, well known as a popular sailing and diving destination due to this stable country’s warm clear waters, continuous breezes and generous yet compact archipelago consisting of 66 Islands and Cays. Located on idyllic Cooper Island and offering island living at its best, this gem of a home is the epitome of paradise, providing easy ocean access, snorkeling, and scuba diving footsteps from your front door. Truly an exclusive retreat, the main house is comprised of three bedrooms and two baths and features a large kitchen and covered outdoor dining, living, and BBQ areas, and spacious terraces. The 50-foot, open-plan porch and west-facing panoramic views showcase spectacular sunsets across the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Quart-A-Nancy Point is one of only 5 privately owned homes on Cooper Island and only accessible by boat. The house is ecofriendly and self-sufficient, producing its own 110V power on-site using solar technology and battery storage. It was originally built in the 1960s and 70s as an artist’s retreat and completely renovated in 2019. The time-tested construction was built to last and has proven to withstand even the largest known hurricane force winds, with its poured reinforced concrete columns and roof, and a mixture of concrete block, and native stone throughout. With the ocean just below the house the best snorkeling in the BVI is just footsteps away offering warm water excursions with regularly visiting dolphins, turtles, rays, and a myriad of tropical fish and marine corals. This idyllic location also provides easy access to the adjacent Cooper Island Beach Club restaurant and bar, providing the best of both worlds that Caribbean living has to offer: quiet, peaceful solitude and an unforgettable view along with sun and fun.
