Property description

The Channel House: few homes in the world are as unusual and magical. Set in 2 acres of mature tropical gardens and 20 yards from the turquoise waters of the beach, this house was one of the early, old houses of Providenciales. Built in the traditional Bermudian style it is set high up 12 ft above ground level allowing superb views out over the waters of Leeward Going Through. The feeling is of living in a tree house which is accentuated by an enclosed verandah which wraps around the entire house, fully netted, letting the breezes in and keeping the bugs out. This is a natural and effective air conditioning system allowing the occupants to live and sleep in comfort.

Relax on the comfortable upper terrace with its wonderful sea views or stretch out in the sunshine on the patio area down by the private pool and absorb the beauty and the sounds of the tropical gardens.

The wave action is gentle in the Channel and this, together with the long stretch of white, powdery sand makes a lovely beach for swimming, sunbathing and beach combing.

As the house is situated opposite the Princess Alexandra Nature Reserve the bird life is amazing: watch the pelicans cruise past, listen to the terns calling and catch a glimpse of the osprey flying by feeding its young. A true paradise.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: As soon as we set eyes on Channel House we fell in love with it. Hidden behind overgrown trees it was falling apart, bug ridden and desperately in need of attention. Imagine our surprise when we found it was for sale - we had to buy it! And so began an ongoing project which, at times, has proved to be quite a challenge; but we have never regretted the decision to purchase the house and love it dearly.

Why the Owner Chose Grace Bay, Turks and Caicos Islands:
The location, for us, was perfect. We wanted somewhere private, on the sea and with enough land to allow us to make a tropical garden. The Channel House fulfilled all these criteria.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Staying at the property is, for us, a total break from the freneticism of our lives here in the UK. The house is incredibly peaceful and we can totally relax.
