Strolling along a secluded stretch of the magnificent Grace Bay Beach on Providenciales in Turks and Caicos, a young couple from New York City made a life-changing decision. The year was 1995 and the pair was on retreat from their fast-paced lives in the city that never sleeps.
They encountered the remnants of a house set in powder white sand dunes and surrounded by native bush and sea grass, sparking their imaginations of a dream home to come.
They spent the next four years designing and constructing one of the most unique homes in this island country. The result of their hard work and creativity is Coral House. Discretely located directly on the silky-fine sands of one of the world's best beaches, Coral House is a stunning beachfront villa that marries the essence of the Caribbean with extreme luxury. Inspired in equal measure by the needs of an active, growing family as well as an acute eye for design, Coral House is 12,000 square feet of unpretentious splendor, sophistication and seclusion.
Here, days unfold with restorative walks on miles of pristine beach, al fresco yoga, rejuvenating plunges into the pool or soothing swims in the warm clear waters of the bay. The sand and sea provide ample opportunities for fun and relaxation with world-renowned dining, fishing and water sports at your doorstep. Fresh local fare takes center stage at the table followed by leisurely evening gatherings of friends and family under a vast canopy of moon and stars. The gentle rhythm of the waves and sultry ocean breezes calm the soul and usher in another restful night of sleep.
Coral House is an architectural masterpiece, influenced by the work of legendary theatrical designer, Oliver Messel and recalling the 18th century tradition of island plantation estates. The home has caught the attention of the international media as well as fans of Messel who admire how it exudes the charm and character of the Turks and Caicos. Coral House is spectacular to look at, and with its location, décor, amenities and layout, it is also extraordinary to live in.
The floor plan gracefully integrates indoor and outdoor spaces permitting simple yet sophisticated living. The boundaries between the natural and man-made worlds fade as one room flows into another providing cozy, comfortable nooks as well as formal areas to entertain and enjoy the ambiance. The attention paid to every detail doesn't stop with the furnishings. Coral House provides first-class, personalized services and privacy in a spectacular setting enabling you and those you love to experience a unique and unforgettable Caribbean holiday.
