Sunset Point is located on two of the best-positioned lots totalling 1.12 acres the western most tip of Britannia Estates. The site overlooks the Britannia Jack Nicklaus Championship golf course and beyond to the North Sound and the Caribbean Sea.

Designed over three storeys the residence affords stunning panoramic views, is a fully automated home with the latest state of the art technological features and the finest finishes, fixtures, fitments, appliances and furnishings available.

 The property utilises only the finest materials such as Jerusalem stone, Canella olive root millwork, artisan metalwork and an exquisite selection of marbles.

Steps lead up to the grand double door entrance that opens on to the hall, marked with a coffered ceiling, elegant chandelier and marble inlay to the floors, with guest powder room to the side.

The great room, with double volume ceiling and dual aspect picture windows and impressive chandelier above, lends itself to both casual and formal entertaining with plenty of comfortable seating and a marble topped bar, easily accessed from the patio area.

The elegant dining room easily seats twelve or more and French windows open on to the patio and pocket doors can be closed from the kitchen and breakfast room if desired. To complete entertaining space there is a 7 seat home cinema with drop down rear projection screen and Kaleidoscope server room. Steps head down to the climate controlled and computerised wine cellar, a dumb waiter takes bottles up to the kitchen and dining area.

Handcrafted using the finest materials and highest quality equipment, the kitchen is of a professional standard yet family friendly. The heart of the kitchen is the La Cornue range, with Miele ovens, warming drawer and coffee station, Sub Zero fridge freezer and wine cooler. To complement the Smallbone of Devizes solid Oak cabinetry and granite countertops the hand painted barrel ceiling and two candelabras create a warm, traditional ambience to the room.

There is a ground floor guest bedroom suite with French windows to the patio and pool area and leading from the kitchen is the utility room, laundry cupboard and triple car garage with automated and reinforced doors.

Above the well-equipped gym and triple air conditioned garage is a large study/boardroom complete with coffee station and bathroom facilities alongside
a self-contained staff suite.

An elegant wrought iron staircase sweeps up to the second and third floors, as does the elevator. The galleried landing flows above the sitting area below and opens on to the master study complete with extensive panelling, a casual family room shares a pool side balcony with the study and second bedroom suite which has North Sound and golf views, fully fitted walk-in wardrobe and large bathroom. There are two further bedroom suites of equal proportions both individually designed.

The Master Suite
The master suite, which comprises the whole third floor, is a sumptuous sanctuary boasting a velvet lined headboard, coffered ceilings, pop up TV and two private balconies for sun and shade.  A coffee station and built in fridge under a breakfast bar is an added touch of luxury and convenience. Two dressing rooms lead on to private bathrooms, ‘His’ impressively fitted with solid Walnut cabinetry and ‘Hers’ with more delicately painted Oak both featuring Kohler hardware, soft close toilets and stunning granite counters.

Gardens and exterior
Both parcels are surrounded by verdant greens and ocean breezes for year round enjoyment of the warm tropical breezes. Dense, mature landscaping enhances privacy and provides shade around pool and patio, which is served by a wonderful all weather gazebo, with marine grade stainless steel bar, kitchen and cabinetry, gas barbecue, out door rated TV and speakers all enclosed with retractable shutters.

To the front of the residence remote controlled gates open onto the driveway, with access to the garaging and shaded parking either side.

This magnificent residence is undoubtedly one of the finest properties in the Cayman Islands and the Caribbean. Whilst substantial in scale, Sunset Point succeeds in achieving a perfect balance of
a grand, yet highly liveable, family home.
