Perwinkle, Cayman Islands
How Caribbean charm and sustainable living come together to create an extraordinary new development underway in Grand Harbour.
Words By Natasha Were
As the first planned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified community in the Cayman Islands, Periwinkle is a ground-breaking development moving full speed ahead. An innovative project, Periwinkle is a nine-acre village-style development where Caribbean homes are complemented by native landscaping, outstanding communal facilities and 1300 feet of canal front.
“We wanted to create a community that was different, which is why we designed it according to LEED standards,” explains Ryan Ostendorf of Periwinkle Development Ltd. “What this means for Periwinkle homeowners is an amenity and activity-rich community with high-performing, efficient homes surrounded by green space.”
In keeping with the key principles of New Urbanism, Periwinkle balances the need for privacy at home with well-designed shared spaces that connect neighbours to each other and to their environment. Picture waterfront views, private clubhouse with 60-foot pool and Jacuzzi and exclusive farm-to-front-door delivery, all within the comfort of a gated community with on-site security. Imagine being able to walk next door to the grocery store, meander through the neighbourhood on a family sunset walk or take an evening stroll with friends for dinner at a nearby restaurant. With private docks for boating enthusiasts, paddleboards and kayaks for water lovers, walking path and a children’s wet zone, Periwinkle is a development that pays attention to the details.
Those who are searching for quality, spacious residences will find the three-, four- and five-bedroom homes at Periwinkle are ideal. For those in the market for something on a smaller scale, the two- and three-bedroom cottages await. Each residence is envisioned to combine classic Caribbean with a modern flair and offers a range of Cayman-style porches, courtyard balconies or serene waterfront views.
“Periwinkle is perfect for anyone looking for a home within a well-connected community with a strong sense of place,” says Ryan. “On a per-square-foot basis, Periwinkle presents one of the best values for investment in Cayman.”
