About Lion Heart – Oil Nut BayOn the eastern tip of Virgin Gorda, in the coveted North Sound region, lies a place where life is spent in perfect harmony with the ocean tides, where pristine white beaches and lush terrain quietly intersect, and where world class architecture rests against the backdrop of an idyllic island landscape—a place of distinct refinement; a place called Oil Nut Bay. Spread across 400 exquisite acres and entirely surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, Oil Nut Bay offers freehold property ownership in the most pinnacle of locations in the British Virgin Islands. Accessible only by water or helicopter, the setting is exceptionally private and consciously preserved. Luxury villas custom-built into the island’s topography meld modern design elements with the natural elegance of the Caribbean, while island amenities including recreational activities, dining opportunities, and wellness services offer an altogether elite living experience in one of the world’s most sensational locales.
A Masterful collaboration between renowned developer, David V. Johnson and legendary architect Ken Kao, Lion Heart represents an unparalleled vision in luxury island living. 12.55 acres of a lush expanse of green and dramatic rocky cliffs which unfolds in undulating patterns against the backdrop of a turquoise Caribbean Sea in Virgin Gorda, the British Virgin Islands. Lion Heart features 2 built and furnished villas, Halo and Rainbow, and is designed to house an additional 4 guest villas from 1-3 bedrooms each. Both curved and flat rooflines follow the rise and fall of the landscape and a remarkable 7,450 SF green roof brims with native flora enhancing the villa’s seamless integration into the island’s topography. Lion Heart’s elevated cliffside position offers unrivaled 270 degree panoramic views of the sea, resort and neighboring islands- Necker and Anegada- as well as sweeping views of the entire coastline of Virgin Gorda. The approach to Lion Heart is marked by an impeccable stonewalled drive that emerges out of the natural terrain. Once inside the villas, unique architecture and immaculate design ensure that interior and exterior spaces blend seamlessly together.
