A new luxury residential resort is being developed on the Turks & Caicos. Rock House, created by Grace Bay Resorts, will be a Caribbean version of a Mediterranean retreat overlooking the ocean. Rock House which will break ground later this year, is now offering a select number of homes for purchase. The resort will officially open to guests in 2020.
Located on a majestic 14-acre oceanfront site with 600 feet of frontage and peaks soaring up to 95 feet above sea level, Rock House is the first residential resort tucked into the rugged, untouched limestone cliffs of Providenciales’ north shore inspired by the glamorous seaside resorts of the French Riviera. This residential resort is highly exclusive as it is a low density within a prestigious residential neighborhood that cannot be replicated.
Hilltop Homes Available For Purchase
Currently, nine Hilltop condominiums are available for purchase. These units will be located in three two-story buildings with a mix of one-bedroom and two-bedroom units on the first level and full floor penthouses with expansive views of the sea directly above. Each Hilltop condo will overlook the main resort and will be set among lush native vegetation with ancient trees that date back hundreds of years, offering a secluded escape from the sanctuary below.
Thirty-nine cottages and four hillside homes in total are being developed.
The breathtaking focal point of the Hilltop Condos will be a quarry pool that is being carved directly out of the limestone cliffs, blending into the site’s natural beauty—a first for Turks and Caicos. Homes in this section of the resort are priced between $695,000 and $1.475 million. Homes are already more than 50% sold.
The condominiums are being designed by celebrated AD100 interior designer Shawn Henderson and local Coast Architects who will incorporate elements of Rock House’s natural surroundings into its Capri-inspired design.
Rock House homes will boast spa-like outdoor shower gardens and feature walls made of the local limestone as well as 13-foot vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors and private pools for the ideal afternoon dip.
Hilltop Studios, one and two bedroom units will feature ceilings of 10 feet on the first floor while second floor units will have ceilings of more than 12 feet. Italian porcelain tile floors will be found throughout each unit and each will be wired for high-speed internet, Wi-Fi, television and phone. Each unit will also have air conditioning with dedicated condensers and gas-powered instantaneous hot water heaters.
One and two bedroom units will feature kitchens with high-end appliances including wood-paneled Sub-Zero refrigerators, while bathrooms will offer Waterworks fixtures, Caesarstone-topped vanities and oversized showers with full height frameless glass enclosures.
A comprehensive furniture package, designed by Henderson, will be offered to owners before completion of the homes. The package will also include linens, artwork, audio visual equipment and accessories. If elected, the cost of the entire package will be approximately 8% to 10% of the cost of the unit.
Residents will enjoy such amenities as The Beach Club which features a 100-foot infinity swimming pool, a decadently private beach sandwiched between crystal-clear waters and limestone cliff, and a signature restaurant. There will also be restaurant and bar, spa, fitness center and arrival pavilions, each offering a 180- degree view of the Atlantic Ocean and Providenciales. At dusk, the sunset will be reflected in the pools while the club lanterns will be lit and the poolside daybeds will be transformed into evening loungers located beneath palm trees.
Residents of Rock House will have their own pristine private beach, measuring approximately 250 feet and resting at the base of the resorts iconic 25- foot limestone cliff. The Rock House beach will be the antithesis of large resort beaches, as it will accommodate only 30 guests.
Rock House is conveniently located less than 10 minutes from the Providenciales International Airport. For more information, visit The Rock House website or watch this video about the development.
