Perfection is not a word we use often in the real estate business, but in this instance, we would not change a single thing about Casey Bay. From the cliff-top situation above a sandy beach to the quality of craftsmanship and materials used, Casey Bay is perfection through and through.
Renowned Colorado-based Berglund Architects designed Casey Bay and have blended innovative design with local architectural details and natural materials, which has resulted in an outstanding property in keeping with the local environment. Only the best hardwoods and artisanal stonework have been used in the construction of this outstanding property, blending unobtrusively into the hillside.
Every comfort and convenience has been considered in the design of Casey Bay. The villa features central air-conditioning throughout the property and ceiling fans in each room if you prefer to let the ocean breezes cool you. Each of the four luxuriously appointed bedrooms are situated to provide complete privacy from the main living areas of the house. The master bedroom and one other can be found in the main house, each with its own ocean-facing terrace and oversized bathroom.
A further two individual bedroom cottages can be reached by a stone pathway from the pool terrace. Such a layout makes Casey Bay ideal for vacation rentals and the house has proved to be a successful vacation rental property.
High cathedral ceilings and stunning hardwood doors, windows, and cabinetry lend an air of luxury to each room without any ostentatious glitz. Tasteful furnishings and neutral stone floor tiles do nothing to detract from the turquoise ocean views from each sliding glass door and window.
In addition to the glass doors that surround each room, smaller windows have been set high up under the cathedral ceilings to ensure there is always an abundance of light.
The main living area at Casey Bay has been designed to offer the ultimate versatility in island living. The open plan kitchen has been finished to the highest standards with hardwood cabinetry and stainless steel appliances.
The kitchen and dining area have glass doors on two sides, opening out on to an oceanfront dining terrace, bar with built-in professional grade grill, and lounge area. All of this is accented with beautiful local stonework and is covered from the sun. Enjoy an intimate dinner in the air-conditioned comfort of the indoor dining room or throw open all the doors and embrace the entire alfresco living area at once.
Adjacent to this covered living area is the free-form shaped infinity pool and surrounding sun deck. Access to the two bedroom cottages begins at the pool terrace and a stone staircase leads down from this pathway to your own sandy beach. The only access to this little-used beach is from Casey Bay, one neighbouring home, or by boat. We would be surprised to see another soul there.
Residents and guests of Casey Bay have full access to the facilities of Rosewood Little Dix Bay Resort, which is currently undergoing a major renovation and transformation. It is scheduled to reopen late in 2017 and when it does, not only will the standard of its accommodations and facilities be raised to a new high level of luxury, but so too will the value of the surrounding properties within the Estate. The iconic main buildings at Laurance S Rockefeller’s resort are being refurbished on the inside without altering the founder’s original vision of a resort at one with nature. The number of guest rooms is being reduced to 79 and some of the original rooms are being replaced by one and two-bedroom suites, complete with private plunge pools. Full property management services are available through the resort and a selection of reputable management companies.
Casey Bay is the complete package: a breezy hilltop location above a private sandy beach, world-class design, artisanal craftsmanship and ocean views to rival any in the world. We guarantee you will not want to change a thing!
