The Bay Islands in the Western Caribbean offer some of the most unspoiled amenities of the Caribbean. One of these islands is Roatan, where tropical forests, cloudless skies, pristine beaches and an azure ocean that is home to an amazing coral reef all combine to envelop one in a world that many would describe as paradise. It is here on Roatan that a visionary engineer named Dan Taylor discovered the perfect locale to develop a community second to none in design and quality. Using his experience in creating projects the world over, he saw on Roatan an opportunity to build a residential development designed for those who are used to the finest things in life. Thus began the odyssey that grew into what is now known internationally as Keyhole Bay. Keyhole Bay encompasses the intimate beach in the “keyhole,” single family estate home sites, and luxury townhomes and condominiums. Soon to take its rightful place in the master scheme is Keyhole Village, which will include a shopping mall, medical and attorneys’ offices, grocery and boutiques – anything to make the residents’ lives as easy and carefree as possible.

An Idyllic World on Roatan Island The luxury condominiums are the focal point of a private Caribbean community catering only to those who are accustomed to surrounding themselves with the finest of everything. The Condominiums at Keyhole Bay are priced from just $372,000 for a spacious one-bedroom 1,500


square foot home to just over $1 million for the elegant 3,900 square foot penthouse suite. A typical townhouse in The Condominiums at Keyhole Bay is built with only the finest-grade materials, hand-crafted inside and out, set in a sea of manicured lawns, towering trees and lush vegetation. One of these, a two-story, 3,675 square foot seaside home, brings new meaning to the term “luxurious living.” Ensconced on the first and second floors of the nearly completed Tarvisio building, the lavish townhouse has two spacious bedrooms, with two and a half baths. On the first floor, the domed 10' x 10' entrance foyer opens into a 17' x 22' Great Room, with hand-laid travertine floors and walls ascending a full 24 feet up into the second floor loft. The Great Room continues on the outside of sliding window walls leading to a column-surrounded patio. The stateof-the-art kitchen is equipped with gleaming stainless steel appliances, hand-crafted cabinets of South American white teak, and a peninsula crowned with Spanish granite. The kitchen adjoins an expansive dining area crowned by a massive dome and bounded by massive arches. The second floor of this picturesque townhouse continues the Keyhole Bay keystone of elegance with a 16' x 16' master bedroom that opens onto a generous 481 square foot private balcony. From here, you not only can hear the sound of the rolling ocean, you can see the cresting waves as you enjoy your morning latte. Recently, the Chairman of Real Property Marketing Group, George Lane, visited Roatan and was thoroughly impressed with the Keyhole Bay development. Says Lane: “Rarely have I seen such care taken in the creation of a project. Dan Taylor’s painstaking efforts and commitment to quality ensure that Keyhole Bay is nothing short of first class.” Still not convinced? There’s nothing that proves the old adage that “seeing is believing.” To experience the Keyhole Bay lifestyle, consider a visit to the relaxing island of Roatan and judge for yourself what others have already discovered – “this is the place I want to call ‘home.’” Please visit www.keyholebay.com or www.caribpro.com/KeyholeBay_ Roatan/index.php, or call our US number 228-533-2001 for additional information.

Here the flowers bloom all year-round against the backdrop of fabulous views of the Atlantic Ocean, casting their scents within the peace and serenity of the 10 acre gardens and walkways. Tir Na Nog is located in the most sought after location in Eleuthera, the Atlantic seashore on Banks Road, where there are a select number of Estates overlooking an amazing beach and only minutes from nearby restaurants and the charming Village of Governors Harbour. At Tir Na Nog your senses will be indulged. Interiors were recently renovated and designed by the gracious David Flint-Wood, co-author of “Island Style,” a wonderful book of what Island Life is. Applying the very flair that made the Island Style decor renowned, he used simple wood and white linens, organic materials, soft lighting and tropical touches ― warm and soothing to the senses. The Land: 10 acres of coconut lined rolling dunes and pathways lead to one of the most fabulous beaches you have ever seen. Stroll the miles long beach; stop in at Tippy’s restaurant for a cool drink or a bite. Lounge in the sun, in the hammocks strung in the coconut grove or under the beachfront gazebo. Covered with coconut trees and a variety of fruit trees, there is always something to pick and eat.

Across the driveway is the main bedroom house complete with a beautiful covered veranda with three large bedrooms all decorated with a similar feel to the main house. Towards the ocean are two self-contained, one-bedroom cottages with an amazing view out over the palms and the beach beyond. These five bedrooms all have private entrances and en suite baths, Three bedrooms are located in a house across from the dining hall. They are private and tranquil with exquisite furnishings in the simple Island Style ― crisp and refined. Two additional bedrooms are separate bungalows with private decks overlooking the coconut grove, and the shades of the crystalline of the beach and the azure of the Atlantic. Situated above the tennis courts with sweeping views of the estate and the sea, the living and dining room is a gathering place for all for fine dining, relaxation and entertaining. Outdoor grilling and dining is an option on the Northern deck, with upper deck for even fuller views and very much a retreat. This property truly is a treat to behold.

American luxury estates

Edgefield Bridgehampton, New York “One of life’s greatest luxuries is to own and to live in a great estate where we can breathe and relax. A place to enjoy with those we love the most. Where memories and friendships are formed to own forever,” explains James Michael Howard (JMH) owner and designer of Edgefield, now in construction on Highland Terrace. Sprawling across 2.6 acres looking over farm fields to the south and the ocean beyond, this 10,000± square foot, seven-bedroom estate is Jim’s vision of the perfect house. Upon entering the gated property and continuing through the porte-cochere, the arrival court welcomes guests with warm stone paving and intricate plantings. “I wanted to design an expressive residence that was rich with detail and filled with light.” JMH. An intimate foyer and paneled galleries welcome all across French limestone floors. The formal living and dining rooms have a multilayered design aesthetic that includes coffered ceilings, elegant moldings and French limestone mantels. The library secludes the master wing from the public entertaining areas. Luxurious fixtures, cabinetry, custom moldings, a bespoke wooden mantel and beams are the hallmarks of the master wing. The master bath has custom mosaic marble flooring. The kitchen offers Sub-Zero, Viking and Miele appliances while the morning room opens to the covered patio with fireplace. Upstairs a guest master shares the second floor with three guest suites, an office and laundry room. The lower level offers recreational spaces, media, wine and exercise rooms as well as a living room with fireplace, two staff suites and kitchenette. A Crestron system controls the entire estate that is powered by a combination of geothermal and gas systems. “I have always seen the landscape as one of endless opportunity,” JMH. Gardens of boxwood hedges and hydrangeas anchor the lawn on the west side of the house. Beyond the dramatic pool pavilion and 54’ pool and spa is a terraced lawn. The gardens on the east side of the house consist of boxwood parterres featuring hornbeam hedges and obelisks shading the path from the arrival court to the sunken tennis court. “If I could sum up in one word what all great estates should hold sacred, it would be imagination, a place that would be magical to its new owners.” JMH.
