Patricks Island is its own slice of tropical bliss – a canal-filled residential community on Grand Cayman.
The tax-free haven, the largest of the Western Caribbean’s Cayman Islands, is known for its beaches, resorts, snorkeling and scuba diving sites. The lifestyle is laid-back, the scenery stunning and buying property provides a route to residency.
Quality healthcare and schools have also made it an attractive spot for expats – most coming from Jamaica, the Philippines, the U.S., the United Kingdom and Canada – in search of a slower pace of life. English is the main language.
This lushly landscaped residence is a prime example of the type of luxury house for sale in Patricks Island. A mix of steeply pitched and gently sloping roofs, wide overhangs and wraparound verandas reflect the vernacular architecture of the region.
The executive home looks out on the open water and takes in unobstructed views of the North Sound. Multiple patios, a swimming pool and a dockside gazebo seating area provide options for outdoor lounging and activities.
The light and airy home has more than 7,700 square feet of living space including five bedrooms, a den, four full bathrooms and a powder room.
The main level features open-plan living and dining rooms topped by a tray ceiling, an informal living area and a center island kitchen with a pantry. The bar has integrated wine refrigerators.
A guest suite with a bedroom, a kitchenette, a full bathroom and a walk-in closet are also on the ground floor.
The second floor contains the primary suite, the den, and the additional bedrooms and balconies.
Patricks Island is about 10 minutes from the center of the capital city of George Town with shopping, restaurants, a museum, government offices and a buzzing financial services industry. The 150-lot enclave was developed largely from the late 1980s through the mid-90s.
