, Julia Roberts
, Kate Moss
and Naomi Campbell
all go there for a getaway – now you can call it home. Pink Sands
, the exclusive resort on idyllic Harbour Island in the Bahamas
formerly owned by famed record producer Chris Blackwell
is now offering a limited number of private residences
on the picturesque property built to owners' specifications. Only 13 of the elite estates
will be constructed on the celebrity hideaway's 20 acres overlooking the most beautiful stretch of pink sand beach
in the Bahamas. Building lots are priced fro $700,000 – $1.995 million, and the resort's luxe amenities including the concierge service, housekeeping, private dining, beach chairs and umbrellas, massage studio and more will be available to estate owners.
Once they've acquired a lot owners can choose to hire their own architect
or pick out one of Pink Sands' unique turnkey plans, and can also stay at the posh resort
while their villas are being built. One of the first estates, designed by the award-winning Garcia Stromberg architectural firm, is a three-bedroom villa
with panoramic views of the beach and the bay, a beautifully landscaped private outdoor courtyard, an open-air sitting area with fireplace and a private swimming pool
, and a guest cottage. This villa will also be available to rent with weekly rates starting at about $19,000 during the off-season, as will certain others, with the option of joining the rental program open to all purchasers.
