Exclusive private house in the British Virgin Islands

Midsummer House is a fantastic Caribbean property situated on the main island of the British Virgin Islands – Tortola, on a gently sloping piece of land with fantastic sea views. The property, sold freehold, is built as three pavilions with a large outdoor terrace for the (unusually large) swimming pool. The house itself was built with a distinctly Caribbean flavour with a lively colour scheme of bright yellows for the main house and blues for the bedroom pavilions.

The two-storey main pavilion includes kitchen, covered dining area, living room and porch on the main level with library, hobby room, full bathroom and laundry on the lower level.
