About Rhumb House
Rhumb House is one of Tortola’s landmark properties. Situated on an exclusive private estate on the south shore this property overlooks the channel and the surrounding islands including Cooper Island and Peter Island. The real beauty of this property is the feeling of elegance, seclusion and space it provides. Rhumb House has a gated and private driveway that leads up to the main house and a separate guest cottage.
The main house is striking, it is an expansive 8,000 sf six bedroom house, all with en-suites, with multiple living and dining rooms. Upon entrance you are welcomed into a spacious open plan living and dining area which extends to the great glass doors that open onto two patios, the pool and the views beyond. This open area provides ample room to entertain friends and family as well providing areas for quiet reflection and relaxing. The air-conditioned Great Lounge provides a formal reception room which is adjacent to the dining room with space for fourteen guests all sitting in the opulent banana leaf chairs. The key feature of this room however is the masterfully designed roof with its wooden accents setting the scene of this formal dining room. The spacious hallways have been left to flow from area to area with minimal wall décor, ready to be furnished to the new owners’ personal design. The neutral kitchen has recently been updated with white cabinets, neutral counter tops, stainless appliances, and prep tables with tropical teak free-standing buffet and stools. This can work either as private chefs’ area or a family kitchen. There is also a home study which is peaceful and overlooks the oceans below and perfect should need to work from home.
Rhumb House’s five interior tropical gardens are integral to the property’s design. The senses are purposefully engaged with the surrounding sounds and movements. The stepping stones are designed to lead from one space to the next with a underpinning the sense of adventure this property provides. The scope for redesigns are endless with the opportunity for a seventh bedroom suite or gym downstairs. There is also possibility for an outdoor kitchen, wet bar and lawn seating overlooking the nearby channel. Rhumb House is open on all sides to spectacular ocean views and designed to make you appreciate the natural beauty of Brandywine Bay and the subtle topical touches never let you forget you’re in the heart of the Caribbean.
After Hurricane Irma, under OBMI supervision, all roofs that were damaged or destroyed have been reconstructed. All windows and doors have been replaced with high quality hurricane proof ones; all vulnerable doorways and windows have new hurricane shutters installed.
The second property is a smaller guest house with two bedrooms & two bathrooms located to the east of the main house. This cottage is perfect for friends and family to stay in whilst still giving them their privacy or could be allocated to home help and support staff.
The 2-acre private property has recently been renovated & is a blank canvas ready for any buyer to come and redesign to their taste.
