One of the unexpected gems for those looking for that perfect home is OLEA – a waterfront community that will encompass 124 condominiums, townhomes and duplexes constructed over four phases starting this month. A joint venture between Dart Real Estate and NCB Group, OLEA’s design aesthetic is based on classic Caribbean architectural heritage rendered in contemporary lines. Located south of Camana Bay’s Town Centre and adjacent to Cayman International School, OLEA’s top-quality construction, sustainable building design and beautiful landscaping all add up to a lovely residence that is unique in Grand Cayman.
Wake up each day to peaceful views of outdoor spaces in your beautiful, environmentally-friendly townhome – a home that maximises value without compromising quality, style or privacy. Residence 203 offers 2,660 square feet of delightful and sustainable living space. The three bedrooms, each with its own en suite, occupy the second floor of this thoughtfully designed townhome with a balcony featured off the master bedroom overlooking the garden below. Relax in spacious living areas like your open-concept kitchen, dining and living room. With solar panels, geothermal cooling systems, LED lighting, energy-efficient appliances and water-conserving plumbing fixtures, you can rest assured that your home is as efficient and sustainable as possible. Your windows even reflect the sun’s energy back out to the atmosphere as they are “low E” windows, keeping you as cool as possible. Add in the fact that it will be built using ICF construction, which has a solid concrete wall featuring insulation on both sides that keeps hot air out and cool air in – ensuring you and your family will live comfortably all year round. With all the energy-efficient features and use of renewable energy in these homes, it is estimated that homeowners will save upwards to 70% off of their monthly electricity bills.
When not enjoying your tranquil indoor living spaces, you can take advantage of the beautifully landscaped outdoor areas designed by Dart Real Estate’s horticultural experts, or take a leisurely swim in the resort-style pool that is surrounded by the island’s first lazy river, providing hours of endless fun for the young and young at heart! Dine al fresco at the outdoor community BBQ and dining area where entertaining friends and family is effortless. There’s also a community herb garden to help add flavour to your culinary creations.
OLEA also offers three children’s playgrounds and a waterfront boardwalk, as well as a fully equipped gym if you or your family want to stay active. The meandering footpaths and the waterfront boardwalk are also perfect for running or strolling when you want to get in an outdoor workout. When you need to unwind, spend some quality time in the lovely outdoor yoga garden – the perfect spot for sun salutations and a little meditating. The outdoor spaces will all be developed with sustainability as the main feature, with landscape designs that exceed LEED© requirements by incorporating native and other plants that are drought tolerant. Cisterns are also planned to capture rain water.
All common areas and amenities are powered by the sun – another appealing benefit – as OLEA will have the largest solar array of any residential community in Grand Cayman. There are even electric car chargers for the buildings and onsite collection for recyclable materials, so it’s easy to recycle every day.
Residence 203 is one of those finds that is well worth pursuing: exceptional community living with environmentally sustainable and beautifully designed spaces that you will love.
