Located on Cooper Island, sitting atop a cliff at the Northern tip of the island overlooking the Sir Francis Drake Channel and the stunning Manchioneel Bay, is Quart-A-Nancy Point. This BVI property for sale is set on 2.75 acres of freehold land and faces West into the sunset with a panoramic view of the neighbouring Islands. Salt Island and Peter Island lay close by, as does the main Island of Tortola, with St John and St Thomas USVI in the distance. On a clear day, St Croix lays on the horizon 40 miles away.
The construction of the house first started in the 1960s as an artist’s retreat by Chess Master Bill Hook. Quart-A-Nancy Point was built to withstand everything that nature could throw at it. The poured reinforced concrete columns and native Caribbean stone walls have withstood the Caribbean’s worst storms over the past 60 years, a testament to the Islands’ labour-intensive building traditions.
Cooper Island, located in the centre of the British Virgin Islands, is approximately 30 mins from Road Town, the capital of the BVI. It is only reachable by boat, and there are no roads or cars to worry about. Quart-A-Nancy is a hideaway, a retreat, a bolthole in a stunning location with total privacy. It is somewhere to treasure, as sites like these are getting harder to find and, in today’s uncertain climate, a property of actual value for their remote but secure location.
The house comprises three bedrooms, two bathrooms. A covered porch runs the entire length of the West facing side of the house with glorious uninhibited views out over the Ocean. Al Fresco dining is the order of the day, supplemented by a large kitchen and courtyard BBQ area.
The house is eco-friendly and provides its solar power with 110 Volt electricity to run all usual household devices. Backup batteries continue to provide power at night, and there is also a backup generator.
World-class sailing, diving and snorkelling are literally at the end of your drive, and the crystal-clear warm waters of the Caribbean Sea is your lawn.
Quart-A-Nancy has the bonus of its private dock, complete with a 25ft twin-engine powerboat that comes with the property. Ideal for shopping trips or pleasure cruises around the Islands.
Although the house provides unparalleled privacy and seclusion, on the days you want to eat out or have a cocktail or even fill your dive tanks, the neighbouring and well-established Cooper Island Beach Club is only minutes away along the beach.
Providing lodging, restaurant & bar, boutique and dive shop facilities to the visiting yachtsmen.
