Masters of waterfront living - The WaterColours & The Residences of Stone Island
The concept of luxury waterfront living in the Cayman Islands reached new heights when the finishing touches were added to The WaterColours in summer 2014. Now, the same developers are bringing decades of property expertise to a very different project, The Residences of Stone Island.
Words by Natasha Were. Images are artist's concept.
A ground breaking development in more ways than one, not only has The WaterColours created sumptuous beachfront residences that are more spacious and finished to higher specifications than anything that has come before them, but it has also introduced a new lifestyle concept: For the first time, luxury private residence ownership comes with access to all the amenities and services typically found in a five-star resort.
Within the privacy of their few remaining apartments, owners enjoy unparalleled sea views, flawless design and the finest fixtures and fittings one could wish for. A state-of-the-art fitness studio, spa treatment room, owner’s conservatory and stunning pool are just some of the amenities at their disposal, while the 24-hour security, dedicated concierge, guest suites and luxury car service mean that residents’ every need is effortlessly met.
The development team behind The WaterColours is now channelling lessons learned from past projects into a different interpretation of luxury waterfront living.
The Residences of Stone Island will be their first non-beachfront development but will feature the same top quality construction, design criteria and focus on lifestyle amenities that the firm is known for.
Located on a private peninsula in the sought-after neighbourhood of the Yacht Club, Stone Island is a secure, gated community of 44 spacious waterfront homes.
The close proximity to the renovated Cayman Islands Yacht Club with its boating facilities, restaurants and services, and the planned pedestrian trail to Seven Mile Beach, are bound to make Stone Island one of the most desirable residential addresses in Grand Cayman.
A boardwalk, with space to dock owners boats, encircles the ‘island’, and the residences are positioned around its perimeter.
A series of berms and elevations create an undulating landscape that further enhances privacy, and ensures the expansive common pool set at the highest point benefits from the full effect of the infinity-edge design.
An ideal environment for young families, Stone Island is pedestrian friendly with minimal traffic and plenty of greenery, as well as shared amenities that include a playground, pool clubhouse, barbecue and park area. A separate common building at the entrance to the gated community and adjacent to the tennis court, includes a fully-equipped gym, a soft play area for children, a private screening room and an owners conservatory, where residents can host dinner parties and events.
With up to 4,600 square feet, the spacious homes of Stone Island include three bedrooms complete with ensuites, a first level full bath and second floor half bath. Double garages, plunge pools and terraces for dining alfresco are standard on the first floor, with an open concept kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, dining and living area occupying the second floor, and the bedrooms on the upper floor. Master bedroom suites overlook the water and feature vaulted ceilings, a private terrace, freestanding bathtubs, double sink vanities, spacious showers and walk-in closets.
Elevators, built-in barbecues, main level serving kitchens, luxury stone and other extras are optional, and the earlier one purchases the greater the scope for modifications.
In order to give potential investors an idea of the possible configurations, the first three-unit building, due for completion in 2016, is being professionally and completely decorated and furnished by International Design Group (IDG) to showcase three different styles and layouts, for a broad appeal.
Welcome home, to Stone Island.
