Know Before You Go...

The high vaulted ceilings and cool tile floors of Stargate keep this property cool inside on even the hottest of days. The trade winds that blow in off the ocean also contribute to a pleasant interior even without turning on the air-conditioning. You can spend your days swimming or sunning around the pool, or find a good book in the Great Room and curl up on the covered terrace for a little reading. In the evening, light a fire, and then head out to the terrace to watch the sun go down. You can put a little soft dance music on the stereo and dance under the stars. If the evening turns chilly, you can snuggle down in front of the fire and share a little wine and some good conversation. Either way, it's a fine finish to a wonderful day.

Breathtaking Views

This home sits atop Picara Point in upscale Estate in Peterborg, surrounded by 330-degree ocean views. Three levels, all beautifully detailed and furnished, offer wonderful panoramas.

On Stargate's fully air-conditioned main floor is the Great Room with an arched stone fireplace. Just outside is a sunny swimming pool overlooking heart-shaped Magens Bay. The main level also offers a formal dining area, a gourmet kitchen with native stone and granite counters and wet bar, a powder room, and two air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suites.

French doors open from the Great Room and from the four-poster king bedroom to a deck bordering the entire Atlantic Ocean side of Stargate, providing down-island views-miles and miles of sea vistas punctuated with islands in the distance.

A handcrafted mahogany spiral staircase leads to Stargate's upper level and the air-conditioned king master suite, offering a private balcony with a view of aqua Magens Bay. The staircase continues up to Stargate's observatory tower, with views from Magens all the way around to the British Virgin Islands and St. John.

Below, a gate opens to a short driveway and to the villa's attached garage where you may park your rental car.

Watch tropical sunsets from the pool, then after a leisurely dinner, move to the deck on Stargate's opposite side. What a spot from which to stargaze or watch the twinkling lights of Tortola. Set atop a ridge, Stargate offers romance and relaxation surrounded by inspiring vistas.
