Here’s Your Chance to Buy a Private Villa in Turks and Caicos
Turks and Caicos has long been a hidden gem in the Caribbean. White-sand beaches, azure waters, and coral reefs make it hard not to fall in love with the secluded sanctuary. Travelers who want to call the area home will the perfect opportunity this year. Gansevoort Turks and Caicos, a Wymara Resort is launching five Gansevoort Villas, a collection of waterfront residences located on the southern shore of Providenciales.
Designed by Coast Architects, the two-story glass-and-stone structures provide a striking visual contrast to the blue waters just beyond. Showcasing high ceilings, pickled white timber panels, and hardwood floors, the four- and five-bedroom villas effortlessly merge indoor and outdoor living. Walls of glass and sliding doors create an open-concept, beachy feel. Subtle white and gray shades pair with stone and wood touches for a natural, sun-drenched look. Every inch of the homes—from open-air kitchens equipped with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances to living rooms outfitted with wood light fixtures and wraparound glass windows—focus on laidback beach living. Second-story terraces seemingly hover in the sky, offering a bird’s-eye view of the ocean.
Private courtyards are equipped with both dipping pools and infinity pools, sunken lounge stations, fire pits, and stone and hardwood decks. Walls made from locally sourced stones pay homage to the island and form privacy partitions in the backyards. Wood steps lead to private, ocean-level swimming platforms equipped with lounge chairs, umbrellas, and see-through sunbeds that extend over the water. The platforms provide direct access to the shallow, turquoise-tinged water, which is between 4 and 8 feet deep depending on the tide.
In addition to sunbathing and swimming, islanders can participate in popular pastimes such as snorkeling, boating, deep sea fishing, whale watching, paddle boarding, kayaking, and diving. Those who prefer to stay on the shore can opt for golfing, horseback riding, bicycling, and ATV riding. A private concierge team will plan boating and fishing trips, make restaurant reservations, perform housekeeping and laundry services, and more.
Residents can also take a door-to-door shuttle service from their homes to the resort, where they can cool off in the 7,000-square-foot infinity pool, relax at the spa, or dine and get drinks. Visitors can stay in one of the hotel’s 91 well-appointed guestrooms, which overlook the island’s endless blue waters and white-sand beaches.
The villas start at $3.75 million, and a furnishing package is available for an additional price. Villa owners can place their residences in the resort’s rental program; nightly rates will start at around $8,000. The residences will all be completed this year, with the first one scheduled to debut in March. (gansevoortvillastc.com)
