Buy Donna Karan’s Seven-Acre Tropical Compound in Turks and Caicos
Escape to tropical luxury with this seven-acre compound in Turks and Caicos. The estate offers two minimalist villas, with panoramic views of the secluded island’s pristine surroundings in Parrot Cay, one of the most exclusive areas in the Caribbean.
Fringed with lush vegetation, the estate is home to two four-bedroom homes—both designed by Cheong Yew Kuan. Decorated in the “Urban Zen” aesthetic but with a Caribbean flair, both villas’ interiors feature dark wood and low seating, with coral and cedar accents. The homes also include African and Balinese art.
Sold fully furnished, each 3,850-square-foot villa boasts a second-floor master bedroom with a balcony to enjoy the white sands and turquoise water below. While the other three bedrooms may not have ocean views, all possess ensuite bathrooms.
The rest of the estate is a cluster of indoor-outdoor spaces. As an extension of The Sanctuary, the luxurious retreat belonging to fashion designer Donna Karan, this tropical compound was designed to host her big family and therefore can entertain many guests comfortably. In fact, Karan says she put the annex (70% of her property) up for sale since it’s even more space than she needs.
With seating for 20, the poolside dining pavilion, which is flanked by the two villas, is perfect for al fresco dining. The property also features three swimming pools, a chef’s kitchen, and staff quarters among other buildings. For the Zen-inclined, there’s a beachside yoga pavilion.
Christie’s International Real Estate will make the asking price for this Caribbean property available upon request. (When the home first hit the market in 2014, the Wall Street Journal reported it was listed for $39 million.) For more information, peruse the listing here and see more of it below.
