Located in one of Grand Cayman’s most distinguished neighbourhoods, this splendid canalfront home with a private 60-foot boat dock is among the most coveted properties at the Yacht Club.
Charmingly named “The Pineapple House,” from the moment you arrive at this luxurious property, you are greeted by the luscious landscaping that perfectly adorns the property. From the welcoming glass pineapples at the gate to the lush palms to the bright flowers, the placement of the flora in both the front and back yards provides even more privacy on this perfectly positioned corner lot.
Built in 2018, the 10,500-square-foot, two-storey residence features six bedrooms and five full bathrooms. The spacious first floor of the home has canal and garden views from the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home, inviting light into every room. The chic interior design in the open living areas is thanks to local design firm, Design Studio, the masters behind the recent renovation with modern furniture upgrades and mosaic tile. With bright yet neutral colours, this home has a modern feel with a touch of classical elements such as a large clock, chandeliers, built in shelving and a dragon backsplash in the kitchen that adds extra character. The gentle hues of blue in the main living area complement the fresh whites to provide a Caribbean feel.
Tucked away on the second floor, the spacious master suite contains large his-and-hers walk-in closets leading to an enviable en-suite bathroom with a tiled shower and grand soaking tub as the centerpiece. This room provides the perfect relaxation escape with the adjoining, expansive independent terrace overlooking the picturesque canal. Three of the over-sized bedrooms on the second floor feature en-suite bathrooms, and the final two bedrooms are joined by a Jack and Jill bathroom.
The outdoor areas of this home are perfect for those into wellness with a yoga zen garden complete with a Buddha watching over. The vanishing-edge swimming pool is great for laps and the hot tub that uses purified water in its recycling drain relieves sore muscles. And the expansive and open patio area provide ample areas for entertaining, whether it be grilling in the cabana or relaxing with a cocktail by the pool after a day’s boating from your 60-foot dock to Rum Point and Stingray City.
