Valley Trunk Estate, jewel of the British Virgin Islands in the exclusive enclave of Virgin Gorda, offered for US$48,000,000
Commanding 1,000 feet of isolated beachfront on 18.4 acres, the estate encompasses ten suites spread across five free-standing villas, which boast airy, open-plan interiors with stunning boulder fields further insulating the property
New York, New York, (January 7, 2022) — The Valley Trunk Estate was designed with full respect for its natural splendor. The vast parcel is an oasis of calm, notable for its mature trees and manicured tropical gardens with spectacular ocean views on full display from almost every room. The sunset vistas over Sir Francis Drake Channel are stunning. Another rare geological feature are the magnificent boulders, some of which rise from the sand and stand three stories tall like benevolent sentries over this Caribbean treasure. The boulders also provide natural security and privacy to the property.
The architecture typifies understated elegance with windows opening to expansive porticos to invite the outdoors in. The property’s free-form infinity pool is sublime.
Owned by the same family for more than 40 years, the time has come to pass Valley Trunk to its next stewards. The property has served as a family compound through four generations and recently found success as an ultimate luxury wellness destination.
The estate borders the entire length of Big Trunk Bay, named after Virgin Gorda’s endemic leatherback turtles and stretching more than 1,000 feet. Ultimately private, with world class snorkeling in pristine coral reefs, kayaking and standup paddle boarding right out the door, it is widely considered the finest beach in all of the BVI. Valley Trunk Estate also offers a floodlit tennis court and premiere yacht dockage is nearby.
Encompassing 20,000-square feet of built space, Valley Trunk offers 14 bedrooms across the 10 suite main residential compound and the separate four bedroom villa, each with enough space to find a quiet spot for solitude when needed. There are also staff quarters. The Estate is represented by Edward Child of Smiths Gore, with global marketing provided by Christie’s International Real Estate.
Said Danielle Austin, Senior Vice President of Christie’s International Real Estate: “Valley Trunk Estate exists in such close concert with its environment and is so remote and private that even residents of the island aren’t aware of its existence. All the furnishings, except for the art work, are included in the sale and were just recently updated. The result is a lovely retro aesthetic with modern and sophisticated appointments all while allowing natural beauty to take center stage.”
The standalone villas include the primary residence with 10 ensuite bedrooms and 12 baths. This space is ideal for entertaining family and friends, as well as guests. In addition to a fully updated chef’s kitchen and formal indoor dining room, there are ample areas for al fresco dining, as well as a cinema and bar area with billiards room. The Ocean Villa has three bedrooms and the Garden Villa, four. The Poolside and Coral Suites complete the offering with one bedroom each, as well as the Master Suite. The structures are surrounded by soothing water features and flora that give the appearance of an oasis emerging amongst the breathtaking granite formations.
Said Mr. Childs, director at Smiths Gore : “We are delighted to offer Valley Trunk Estate to the market with Christie’s International Real Estate. This truly is a one-of-a-kind estate property offering the opportunity to control your environment on one of the best beaches. We expect that the property will appeal to a purchaser seeking a secluded and secure location but with the benefit of the amenities offered by Virgin Gorda. “
