South Bank is a residential resort and marina community being developed along 2,200 ft of beach and iron shore including a unique peninsula located on the southwestern end of Long Bay beach, offering some of the finest views over the Caicos Banks.
Inspired by the beachfront homes of Malibu where outdoor decks connect directly on to the beach, the Lagoon Villas are designed as contemporary family homes both in aesthetics and in layout to capture the essence of casual beach living. The concept provides a calm beachfront area for family and beach activities, swimming, and non-motorized water-sports, with easy access to motorized water-sport activities at the affiliated Marina at South Bank.
These efficient designs offer two roof silhouettes at the option of the owner – a contemporary flat roof and a butterfly pitched roof, which gives the building form a dynamic quality. Set on .26 acres the 3-bedroom design spans 2,968 sq. ft. of covered area (3,982 total sq. ft.), providing a unique opportunity for purchasers to enjoy a beachfront villa with resort amenities from $2 Million. Some of the Lagoon Homes have private dock space for boats up to 25 feet.
An enclosed landscaped entrance courtyard provides a calm welcome and doubles as a play area for children, suitably accessible from the first bedroom by floor to ceiling glass sliders which highlight the garden outlook from this spacious ground level bedroom. A 40’ kitchen/dining and living space area conveys panoramic views over the beach and swimming lagoon. A 25’ pool with a cantilevered daybed, lounging terrace and covered dining space are the highlights of the exterior space, which appears raised from the beach and shoreline to provide long vistas over the lagoon and direct access to the beach. Externally the ground level is seen as a plinth emerging from the white limestone, continuing the considered vision of Blee Halligan, while maintaining the natural aesthetic of the setting.
The upper level contains two lagoon facing bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and private terraces that draw the views inwards through use of glass balustrades which create a completely connected sensibility to the serene surrounds of this area.
Options include an additional 4 th under one roof or 5 th bedroom via a guesthouse, garage, outdoor kitchen with electric roll-down screens for the covered dining area, as well as a car port with entrance gates.
Anchored by a full service Marina, Southbank is the newest collaboration of Windward Development Ltd. and architect Blee Halligan, following on the success of their ‘Blue Cay Estate’ in Leeward. Each neighbourhood is architecturally diverse yet united in a “livable contemporary” aesthetic.
Management and services will be provided by Grace Bay Resorts, of the iconic Grace Bay Club, offering an optional rental management program.
Amenities will include Marina, fitness center and spa, tennis court, clubhouse with pool, bar and restaurant, café, lagoon peninsula with lounging cabanas, non-motorized water sports, beach club and Long Bay beach access.
