South Bank is a residential resort and marina community being developed along 2,200 ft of beach and iron shore including a unique peninsula located on the southwestern end of Long Bay beach, offering some of the finest views over the Caicos Banks.
Banks Villa resides on .61 of an acre & at 82’ wide, maximizes the width of its oceanfront position. With a low-slung build form that hugs the landscape and 107’ of frontage this is a home which reveres the horizon line from its landscape orientated view out to the ocean.
An L-shaped reflection pond & landscaped entry courtyard provide contrast to the turquoise blues, visible beyond the double front door. An outdoor seating area bordered by a reflection pond & shaded by pergola framework provide a place for quiet respite on the south elevation.
Once inside, this contemporary home spans 5,581 sq. ft. of covered area (8,764 total sq. ft.). The open plan layout contains a 42’ colonnade which acts as a conduit between the ground level master bedroom & remainder of the house, framing the 56’-wide grand room. The spacious grand room serves as a multi-functional space encompassing living area, dining room & kitchen, openly laid out for complete flexibility of use amid a background of ocean views. The master bedroom on this level enjoys a private covered terrace, indoor/outdoor double shower, and en-suite bathroom complete with double vanity & oversized bath tub.
The most remarkable component of the Banks House design sits just beyond the grand room, a 57’ L-shaped pool spanning almost the entirety of the home, with differing depths. A unique option exists with this design: the addition of a dramatic seemingly cantilevered pool design, adding to the existing L-shaped pool. The 41’ long serenity pool design mimics the peninsulas of this varied landscape, jutting out towards the ocean. Culminating with a seamless finish, glass pool end, opening the barrier between pool & ocean.
The upper level on its ocean side follows in narrative from the arrival experience, with framed pergolas providing shaded outdoor terraces to all four upper level ocean facing bedrooms and embedding the structure into its surrounds. With two master & two guest bedrooms, all four upper level bedroom suites maintain bragging rights. The master suites occupy corner positions & additional perks in their enlarged en-suite bathrooms such as an outdoor shower, respectively double shoer & oversized soaking tubs. Amenities include prep kitchen, office nook & owner’s storage.
