Description:

A magnificent 5-1/2-acre peninsula is the site of this historic island property - Gun Point's exceptional location within a private estate on this promontory provides a profound sense of peace and solitude.

The very top of Gun Point was long ago used as a cannon emplacement which fired out to sea at pirate ships venturing too near the coastline. Now a nature trail leads to this serene and breezy spot for cocktails at sunset, with superb sea views of passing yachts and green islets and cays.

This very English estate was built in 1969 around Gun Point's original 18th-century gunpowder store; as there were no roads in those days, all building materials had to be brought in by sea to Gun Point's jetty and then trotted to the site by a donkey named Liz. This dock nowadays is the perfect spot for snorkeling and swimming, and the estate is still in the family.

The property was completely renovated in 2005 to a high standard of updated luxury, reviving the holiday magic enjoyed at Gun Point decades ago. Gun Point now offers five new air-conditioned bedrooms in two pavilions, all facing out to sea and built adjacent to the new state-of-the-art low-chemical pool.

The Main House comprises the living area, equipped with a high-end media system, and a custom kitchen which opens out to a covered living/dining terrace with a built-in gas grill. This spacious terrace looks out to the beach at Smugglers Cove.

Gun Point's air-conditioned bedrooms are all named in a British family tradition: in the Main House, the king master bedroom/bath suite, which is built within the original gunpowder store, is "Union." This suite has its own private terrace and also accesses the main terrace. "Jack" is the other bedroom/bath suite, which also has french doors opening to the main terrace.

Steps from the covered terrace lead to the infinity-edge pool and sun deck and to an outdoor shower. Three paths then thread through tropical landscaping - to the private dock with a boathouse for shade and steps for easy access into the ocean, to the top of the Point, and through the garden to the beautiful white sands of next-door Smugglers Cove beach.

A native stone walkway connects to Gun Point's Guest Pavilion, with three more bedrooms and a study: "Fish," a king suite, and "Chips," a suite with a king or two twin beds, both have air-conditioning, ensuite baths and private terraces. And "Salt" is the double-bed bedroom which shares the bath with "Chips." On the slightly-lower level is "Pepper," offering a study with air-conditioning, a home office with computer, a double sofabed and a half bath with a covered alfresco shower just outside - perfect for teenagers.

Gun Point also includes the culinary talents of professional chefs, who will prepare your special welcome dinner, and your breakfasts and lunches five days per week during your vacation, and who are available for more fabulous dinners if you wish to be further pampered and spoiled.

This wonderful, electronically-gated family estate offers serene, secluded luxury for guests of all ages, a sense of history, and a spacious and relaxing island hideaway for groups large and small. Enjoy the Caribbean seascape in one of Tortola's most peaceful and private homes - gourmet magic in the kitchen, superb snorkeling, sun-kissed days at the beach and romantic nights of stargazing, the sound of soothing waves, and the natural beauty surrounding this very special place will enchant you.
