I've seen some deep discounts recently but this has to be one of the biggest. Emerald Cay, a private island in the Turks & Caicos Islands was for sale last year at $75 million. Now you can get it for millions less. The incredible property is a luxury hideaway that is accessed via a remote-controlled swing bridge and a Turkish marble driveway.
The island is on over two acres sits surrounded by turquoise water and white powder beaches. The magnificent estate encompasses approximately 30,000 square feet of interiors all wired for everything through a Crestron system. A three-story great room has 45-foot-high cypress ceilings. There is also a three-story library, a master bedroom pavilion and an award-winning home theater.
The estate includes three guest suites, a 6,000-bottle wine cellar, two adjoining swimming pools with a waterfall, a barbecue pavilion, tennis and volleyball courts, two boat slips, a boat house, a guest house, a caretaker's home, and two private beaches. Life's short - but your quality time doesn't have to be, says Lyle Schmidek, owner/broker of the Christie's affiliate for the Turks and Caicos Islands who has listed this home at the new low price of $48.5 million.
