Built into the limestone cliffs of Providenciales’ north shore, Rock House was inspired by the glitzy beach resorts of the French Riviera. Set on a 7.6- metre limestone cliff that overlooks the glittering Atlantic Ocean, the 4.6-hectare brainchild of Grace Bay Resorts is built around gnarled, centuries-old joewood trees and native orchids. Coast Architects is working with a local artisan to create raw limestone facades that will wrap around the interiors and exteriors of each home. All 41 of the studio- to two-bedroom houses will feature outdoor showers made from the same stone, 3- to 4-metre vaulted ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling walls of glass that maximize the waterfront views.
Residents will be able to dine at the hilltop restaurant (which will offer 180-degree views of the barrier reef and ocean) or cool off in the quarry pool that is being carved from limestone (the first of its kind in Turks and Caicos). The best place to take advantage of nature will be the private beach with a beach club jetty that will extend 100 feet into the protected waters of the north shore.
The project is on track to break ground by the end of this year. Current prices range from USD$600,000 to USD$1.6 million.
