Smith’s Cove, Cayman Islands – Sandalwood Residence
Located at the heart of South Sound with main schools, the charming beach at Smith’s Cove and the popular Dart Park just few minute’s walk away Sandalwood residence prides itself on possessing 15 mature trees such as Breadfruit, Frangipane, Travelers Palms and Mahogany, which provide shade and privacy, plus young trees, exotic flowers and a clutch of banana trees. The views of this impressive and well planted garden are enjoyed equally by the main living areas and large veranda and a pool deck.
With 3,000 sq ft of interconnecting interior space and decking the property feels breezy and open. On the ground floor there is an entrance hall with a staircase, living room, dining room, kitchen, an office/studio and a half bath. The upper floor has 3 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a walk-in dressing room.
Interior floors are tiled, cabinetry is custom-made. The property benefits from an alarm system and the air conditioning system is conveniently split between the two floors and independently controlled in each bedroom.
Sandalwood’s master suite boasts a high ceiling, custom made walk-in closet and an interior designed master bathroom with bath/shower, two sinks, toilet and solid cabinetry with a mahogany stain and two recessed cabinets concealed behind the wall-mounted mirror.
The kitchen also features solid wood cabinetry doors with European style stainless steel appliances and a concrete countertop creatively merging into a solid walnut bar on the dining room side. The French doors opening onto the pool deck make cooking a delight and entertaining a breeze. When it comes to dining, you have a choice between the formal dining room or casual time on the veranda which is long enough to welcome both an outdoor dining area and a relaxing seating area.
The 30′ salt-water pool, 7′ deep at one end for diving, retains the sleek concrete theme of the kitchen while the deck is laid with the same tiles as inside to create visual continuity between indoor and outdoor. The gentle sound of the pool fountain, the hammock swinging between trees and the atmospheric night lighting in the garden complete the scenery for many magical occasions.
