BEACH CLUB AT CHRISTOPHE HARBOUR

Set on the Eastern Caribbean isle of St. Kitts, Christophe Harbour promises an island life enhanced by exclusive amenities, services guided by expert hands, experiences made authentic by Kittitian heritage, and rare Caribbean real estate opportunities unmatched in the region.

Beginning glimpses of Christophe Harbour’s remarkable blend of island beauty and Riviera-inspired glamour can now be seen – in oceanfront bungalows, tiled plunge pools, and the airy elegance of The Beach House restaurant. Soon, members will stride along an emerald-green golf course built atop sweeping mountain ledges. They will gather at a beach club that melds fire and water – with massive stonework and fireplaces, private dining patios, swimming pools, and cool waterfalls. And for those drawn to the sea, Christophe Harbour’s leeward-facing, mega-yacht harbour, marina and yacht club will become a centerpiece of daily life.  An aesthetic of sophisticated comfort is being set at Christophe Harbour.

The edges of nature and architecture are blurred at Christophe Harbour. Archways of locally hewn stone, rich upholstery in neutral tones, and walls that open to ocean views are some of the key elements. The overriding feel is organic, stylish, calming.  With a temperate climate, a near-even mix of indoor and outdoor living spaces is possible. As desired, custom architecture readily incorporates outdoor walkways and gardens, pools, seating, and cooking areas.Designed to be a treasure of the new Caribbean, Christophe Harbour’s development and amenities are guided by the aesthetics, impeccable service levels, and conservation ethos of its industry-leading team, led by Kiawah Development Partners.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the individual communities within the development…

SANDY BANK BAY

Set along a dramatic horseshoe bay with two reefs and a natural sand bank more than 100 yards long, the residential offerings at Sandy Bank Bay will give the 2,500-acre Christophe Harbour its initial identity, its first vital heartbeat. A marine sanctuary, the bay will remain free of boat moorings, so that sea life may flourish while wide Atlantic views are protected.

WINDSWEPT VILLAS

Nestled within a cozy harbourside niche at Sandy Bank Bay, Christophe Harbour’s Windswept Villas, a new, exclusive enclave of 11 turnkey residences, is being unveiled.

Choose a three, or four-bedroom, custom-designed Windswept Villa and enjoy exquisite views of the harbour, Atlantic Ocean, and Caribbean sunsets dressed in pale pinks, corals, and crimsons. Steps away will be Sandy Bank Bay Beach Club, a chic gathering place with white-sand beaches and home to luxurious pools, exceptional dining, and personal concierge services.

Windswept Villas are crafted in the tradition of the world’s great hideaways by Correia Construction and Bennett Hofford Construction, distinguished builders whose work is synonymous with excellence, reliability, and quality.

Each Windswept Villa will feature:

  • Environmentally-sound designs built to Energy-Star standards.
  • Expansive living and dining areas, replete with Viking appliances and SieMatic cabinetry, mahogany finishes, and ceramic and natural stone flooring.
  • Elegant furnishing packages and custom options are also available.

The aesthetic for both indoor and outdoor spaces will be guided by Christophe Harbour’s experienced design team to evoke pleasure, entertainment, and renewal—for now and generations to come.

In keeping with St. Kitts’ tradition, generous outdoor spaces naturally extend from the living areas with private walkways; well landscaped gardens; and a swimming pool accented by natural stone decks and patios.

Ownership at Windswept Villas includes the exceptional opportunity to become a Christophe Harbour Club Founding Member with all its associated privileges. Other key benefits of purchase are on-site builder concierge services and Christophe Harbour Club membership, which includes the Tom Fazio course playing up to 500 feet with unparalleled views and natural beauty.

HARBOURSIDE

Here you may shape your shores to fashion your own beach or craft protected settings for your outdoor living spaces, private dock, and boat.

A beautiful blurring of the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces is the hallmark of Christophe Harbour architecture. Designed by Hart-Howerton of San Francisco and New York, these schematic dwellings emphasize varied outdoor living areas and lush gardens, making the utmost of their unique harbourside settings.

This is life on (or over) the water – full of fresh air, worthy of paintings and poetry. You will experience sunrise to sunset…never losing sight of the sea. Make mariners of your children. Watch stars silently reveal themselves. Tell stories handed down for generations. Live life to its fullest.

Only seven homesites are available in this release. Ownership includes eligibility for Economic Citizenship and membership in the Christophe Harbour Club, whose amenities include the nearby Sandy Bank Bay Beach Club and Tom Fazio’s spectacular golf course.

CARDINAL POINT

Panoramic Atlantic sunrises with views across the harbour to vivid Caribbean sunsets, are parts of the daily joy of living on this vibrant hillside within Sandy Bank Bay,.

Home designs by the esteemed firm of Merrill Pastor & Colgan, Architects suggest, in combinations of stone and masonry, a lovely blurring of indoor and outdoor spaces along terraces designed with utmost privacy in mind. As you approach the shoreline, your immediate visuals are of the azure waters with white silk sand shimmering just below and plentiful reefs for all the exploring you like.

Cardinal Point is but moments from the dining and hospitality of the Sandy Bank Bay Beach Club. No other homesites in the Caribbean provide such height for perspective, such one-of-a-kind settings for gracious family homes to enjoy for generations.

Ownership includes membership in the Christophe Harbour Club whose amenities include The Beach Club at Sandy Bank Bay and Tom Fazio’s soaring, spectacular golf course.

MARINA SLIPS

Engineering and design of Christophe Harbour’s 300-acre marina is underway, and slip reservations are now being accepted. This remarkable port-of-call will be the centerpiece of one of the most ideal natural harbours in the Western Hemisphere.  Features include a protected entrance and safe inner harbour that benefits from gentle prevailing winds, and access to both the Atlantic and Caribbean oceans.

A select few mega-yacht slips of 100 feet to 250 feet are available at the center of the marina, and we can also accommodate yachts of 300 feet or larger. Whatever the size, the marina will offer exceptional services for yacht owners, captains, crews, and their vessels.  As a Marina Founder, owners are also awarded a reduced rate on real estate purchases, and qualify for a full Founders’ membership in the Christophe Harbour Club, which includes the Tom Fazio Golf Course, now under construction. (Golf club initiation fees and annual dues are waived, as long as slip ownership is maintained.) Slip purchases also include a Founders’ membership to the Yacht Club.
