The Property

PREVIOUSLY $45 MILLION. NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE!  Offering 180-degree views of Drake’s Channel and Little Dix Bay, the spectacular residence known as Villa Katsura is the ultimate in luxurious island living. Sited on a peninsular lot of nearly 3 freehold acres, the estate was designed by world-renowned architectural firm OBMI and landscaped by Kurisu International, bringing the owner’s vison of creating a Japanese-style residence in the British Virgin Islands to life.

The residence is divided into three separate pavilions: the tri-level main house, which offers a living room, kitchen, library, media room, and dining room in addition to one guest bedroom. The secluded master bedroom suite is adjacent to the main house in its own private pavilion, and the third structure offers generously appointed guest bedrooms, all overlooking a private beach. The sights and sounds of water are featured throughout Villa Katsura, with 11 water features, 3 Koi ponds, and a meditative weeping wall at the entrance to the estate. Then there is the pool: surrounded by lush gardens and bamboo groves, the pool is a testament to the exceptional attention to detail paid throughout the residence. An adjacent hot tub and the spectacular pool are flanked by fire pits, bordered by a rock garden, and decorated with boulders echoing the cliffs surrounding the estate, creating a truly a spectacular vantage point for both sunrise and sunset. A poolside steam room, plunge pool on the path to the beach, and onsen-inspired outdoor shower complete the spa-like atmosphere.

Interior and exterior spaces blend seamlessly at Villa Katsura, with multiple balconies, terraces and three large, fully equipped indoor/outdoor living and dining areas. Though sited to take advantage of the Caribbean breezes, each room offers air conditioning and multiple fire pits stand ready to warm on brisk evenings. Seven washers and dryers make beach cleanup simple, and a covered, 3-car garage also offers a workshop, storage, and staff areas. Mechanically, no expense at Villa Katsura has been spared: the estate offers a 300,000-gallon cistern, additional desalinated water, a standby generator, water treatment plant, and solar power plant, all on-site.


In addition to the incredible amenities within the residence, the owners and guests of Villa Katsura have access to all of the comforts of Little Dix Bay Resort, which include paved golf cart roads, three professionally surfaced tennis courts, hiking trails, a therapeutic Rosewood spa, fully equipped fitness center, water sport gear, and the Rosewood Explorers children’s program. Three restaurants offer dine-in and take out meals, security checkpoints and remote-controlled gates ensure privacy, and complimentary high-speed internet and WiFi are available throughout the resort.
