In the wake of hurricanes Irma and Maria, many are wondering what life in the British Virgin Islands will be like moving forward.

For luxury real estate Sotheby’s International Realty BVI and the developers of Brandywine Estate Bayside Residences, the outlook is shining as bright as the Caribbean sun.

The luxury town-home development is situated on one of Tortola’s premier waterfronts in the quiet community of Brandywine Bay Estate on the eastern end of the island, with stunning views of the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Their location is nestled among the natural beauty of the islands, and the environmentally-friendly design coupled with green building practices mean these residences get the best of both worlds when it comes to owning a piece of paradise in the BVI.

The three-bedroom town-homes are the height of sophistication and each include four and a half baths and a private dock per resident.

With three levels of space to relax and enjoy the gorgeous surroundings, the desirable properties feature spacious floor-to-ceiling windows with open water views. Each level of the properties boasts its own veranda, perfect for watching the yachts and for simply enjoying the views of the sea.

The main interior living area has soaring ceilings to further create an open feel and blur the lines between nature and the comfort of the great indoors. Plenty of uniquely-designed storage areas mean everything has its place, while keeping desired items close at hand, and the mixed-use spaces are perfect for entertaining family or guests. In addition to a private dock for each homeowner’s use, access to a separate parking lot with designated spaces is provided for convenience.

The hillside opposite the residences will soon be transformed into a green space for recreational enjoyment, full of pergolas and picnic tables that complement the natural foliage of the island. This green space is perfect for walking pets and for enjoying all that the BVI outdoors has to offer. Clean, modern and with all the amenities of a cosmopolitan waterfront home, Water’s Edge Brandywine Estate Bayside Residences have everything a homeowner wants, needs, and much more.

While the post-hurricane property market isn’t entirely clear, British Virgin Islands Sotheby’s International Realty is continuing to show and sell homes in the BVI, which is good news for the recovery of the islands. Infrastructure concerns are the main question being contemplated by buyers and builders, but the fact that the market is still positive and will continue to grow as the BVI continues to heal, is a welcome and positive sign.

The Brandywine Estate Bayside Residences development has not only survived the storms but sustained no damage. The all-local team of professionals has been working together on this project for more than two years, and their diligent research and pre-construction work ensured a high-quality product that is contributing to the sustainability of the structures and overall project. No storm surge reached the property, and the hurricane shutters and windows to be used throughout the property performed well, further proving that the quality of the materials chosen are suited perfectly for a property in the Caribbean.

As the project was newly under development when the hurricanes moved over the BVI, the Brandywine Estate Bayside Residences development team has since assessed the property and have made slight adjustments to the project’s completion timeline. One of the condos at Brandywine Bay was under offer at the time of writing this publication, and the project is moving forward.
