Description of Scheherazade
Perched on a rugged volcanic cliff, hidden behind an electronic gate and nestled in a lush, flowering landscape, Scheherazade is your very own secret garden sanctuary. And you deserve it! Sleep in late on your Tempur-Pedic® bed wrapped in 900-thread-count indulgence and a pile of fluffy pillows. Wake up refreshed and …breathe in… the knock-out panoramic view of a dozen nearby and distant Caribbean islands from every vantage point within your exclusive palatial estate. It’s true! It’s not a dream - you really have found your bespoke tropical oasis. Breathe out….
Welcome to Scheherazade, the Villa of 1001 Stories! With no stairs at all, you can stroll easily from your private gated carpark along a canopied path of palm trees adorned with 10 different varieties of tropical orchids as your storybook setting unfolds before you: Scheherazade’s double arched all-glass grand entrance, her sparkling cliff-side pool and your amazing “down island” view, rivaled by none.
With her distinctive all-one-level Master Suite floor plan, Scheherazade’s indoor and poolside living space co-exist in seamless harmony. Custom-designed by noted builder Bob Schmidt in the prestigious gated Community of Peterborg East, Scheherazade’s cathedral ceilings, granite counter tops, travertine and mahogany hardwood floors and her open layout provide a rich setting for tasteful furnishings and decor. With enormous all-glass doors to the vast Atlantic Ocean throughout, the bright and airy ambiance of Scheherazade is enhanced by a soft pastel palette and graced with a large and ever-increasing collection of original fine art bedecking all the walls.
Within Scheherazade’s Great Room, you are surrounded by three walls of floor-to-cathedral-ceiling glass offering brilliant unobstructed views. These gracefully tall, arched glass doors showcase your picture postcard scenery, embrace the ambient light and, when opened, welcome pleasant trade winds to breeze throughout the villa. Not only does Scheherazade boast panoramic views of Hans Lollik, St. John, Tortola and a string of BVI Cays, you can photograph your friends as they tee off from the world-famous “Devil’s Triangle” golf holes at nearby Mahogany Run Golf Course while waves crash against the rugged Lovenlund Bay coastline below you. How cool is that?
You can be the “Host with the Most” with Scheherazade’s open, easy-flow design. Elegant, broad archways connect Scheherazade’s immense Great Room replete with generous and comfortable seating, to the spacious dining room, the wet bar (stocked with a variety of complimentary spirits and fine glassware) and the adjoining all-granite kitchen perfect for even the most skilled gourmand. Well-equipped with a gas stove and top-line appliances, Scheherazade provides everything you need to create and host an epicurean meal. Open the large double glass doors to unite the dining room with the connecting covered outdoor gallery and dine all together, both inside and al fresco! The elegant formal dining table seats 8, while the large all-season table has chairs for 6 or more; both are ready to be set with a variety of fine table linens. More casual meals may be served poolside, at yet another dining table set with 6 chairs.
Scheherazade’s grand-scale covered gallery also offers a comfortably furnished conversation area – your perfect outdoor living room! When you tire of entertaining, it’s easy to relax and “chill out” at peaceful Scheherazade. Her sprawling terrace surrounds three sides of the cliff-edge pool and provides plenty of space to bask in the sun at just the right angle on the cushioned reclining chaise lounges awaiting you. Or, gaze at yachts on the nearby horizon as they sail through the Leeward Passage while you float lazily (cold drink in hand) on an inflatable raft in the dazzling cliff-edge pool.
Enjoy the first-floor convenience of Scheherazade’s spacious and tranquil Master Suite, featuring a queen Tempur-Pedic® bed enveloped in 900 thread-count luxury, your own private balcony with spectacular down-island views, a walk-in closet, separate his and hers vanities, a stone-tiled shower plus a whirlpool tub-for-two that looks out over Hans Lollik. The second floor hosts a King Master Suite with a desk and printer, a large walk-in closet and an en suite bath that includes a double sink vanity and rainfall showerhead in an all-stone shower; a Queen Suite with a new Tempur-Pedic® mattress and an en suite stone-tiled shower; plus a fourth bedroom with a queen bed and sitting area. Both suites feature their own private terrace affording quintessential BVI views, and both queen beds are presented in 900-thread count linens. Full-size laundry facilities, including an iron and ironing board are also located upstairs should you need that convenience (though we hope not).
Ideal for honeymooners, the elderly or those with mobility limitations, Scheherazade’s accessible one-level, indoor / outdoor compatible living style is sure to satisfy the most discriminating guest. Larger groups or extended families will enjoy the second-floor accommodations allowing everyone to relax together in comfort, all under the same roof. Scheherazade’s ever-changing and awe-inspiring vistas begin with faintly muted dawns that blossom into brilliant sunny days to sunsets in glorious hues forming the perfect backdrop for your vacation memories. Come, create your own personal chapter as the star in one of Scheherazade’s 1001 stories.
