Nestled in the exclusive Shannon Estate on Tortola, Samsara Villa rests on 1.287 acres of lush tropical vegetation and down a gentle paved access in the cool mountain air. Centrally located on the main island of Tortola this private property offers spectacular sunset views across the horizon edge pool which is surrounded by outdoor lounging terraces and wooden sun decks. Cane Garden Bay, Jost Van Dyke and the distant USVI islands paint a most incredible panoramic view over the turquoise and royal blue waters.
This is a grand residence with a dramatic 25 foot high cathedral ceiling that showcases its formal living areas as you enter through the large double doors and gaze toward the Atlantic ocean [delete] beyond. It offers a three and a half bedroom, 3 and a half baths private residence within a gated estate, just ten minutes to ferries, beaches, Road Town, and numerous marinas. The huge master bedroom with “his and hers” en-suite bathrooms and showers on either side of a spa bath with an overflowing horizon edge sets the stage for therapeutic bathing in the privacy of the master suite. All of the spacious bedrooms offer private balconies with incredible views.
There are two additional open informal lounging areas, with one upstairs as a loft overlooking the formal living room below and the second is a den/media room downstairs adjacent to the formal living and dining room. The separate kitchen with breakfast bar on the center island comes complete with wraparound granite countertops and another high cathedral ceiling. Any gourmet cook would find themselves right at home with the large stainless Wolf 6-range top burner, additional grill and double-door ovens.
The architect obviously appreciated entertaining and dining both inside and out because the house offers several large covered dining areas both on the decks and in the gardens upstairs and downstairs. The main living area opens onto the decks through four sets of double French doors and various large glass windows protected with hinged hurricane shutters open on all sides to allow the winds to ventilate and keep the house cool all year round. The mountain air is usually ten degrees cooler at Shannon then the temperatures in town or on the beaches. In the cooler tropical winters, one can even light a fire in the fireplace which divides the formal dining from the formal living room.
This home suffered very little, if any damages, during the past storms and has been built to last. Most all of the windows and doors have either aluminum or wooden hurricane shutters so boarding up is easy and uncomplicated. Entertaining for large groups or small intimate parties is a joy with the infinity edge pool complete with sunken stools and covered terraces.
Below the main house is a full guest apartment with separate living room and It’s own kitchenette and a private bath with walk in shower and wardrobe. Your guests can arrive and depart without disturbing the main house as there are lighted steps from the parking lot down to the lower apartment.
Samsara Villa is a very secluded home with ample parking for 6-7 cars, allowing for ease of maneuvering with a comfortable turn around. The property comes with its own 60kw diesel generator designed to keep all the water pumps, fans, lights, appliances and pool working in the event any power outages occur.
