Space, Style and Sophistication at The Somerset
The Somerset on Grace Bay – among Providenciales’ most upscale beachfront developments – is the dual effort of a Manhattan- centered developer and a Turks & Caicos- based team. And in both concept and design, The Somerset reflects a unique blend of cosmopolitan elegance and a comfortable tropical lifestyle…literally the best of both worlds.
Well spaced over a 4.6 acre site, with nearly 300 feet of beachfront on Grace Bay, The Somerset places a premium on privacy and space. In fact, the 16 condominium units in the four oceanfront buildings are referred to as Estate Homes. With only one residence per floor, each spans 3,500 to 4,600 square feet, with the top floor, two- story penthouses offering over 5,200 square feet of magnificent living space.
Each residence in the oceanfront Carlyle, Flintwick, Dundee and Welwyn buildings occupies the entire floor, residents enjoy unobstructed vistas of the mesmerizing turquoise ocean just steps from their door. Private terraces on four sides expand the sense of limitless space and promise the whisper of sea breezes in every room.
Complementing The Somerset’s cosmopolitan style of architecture, interiors echo its grandeur. Accessed by private elevators, Estate Home penthouses feature a central entrance foyer that leads to a high-ceilinged Great Room with walls of wood-trimmed windows open to 60 feet of private seaside terrace. Step up the sweeping staircase to a balcony overlooking the living area and leading to upper-level bedrooms, of which no two share a common wall. Master bathrooms include a Jacuzzi – indoors and outdoors on the terrace, which is also serviced by its own wet bar. Kitchens are state-of-the- art, with built-in china cabinets and wood-fronted refrigerator/freezers, lit by elegant chandeliers. Peruvian hardwood flooring, wood moldings, marble countertops, hand-forged iron railings, pre-wired audio systems and a premier level of appliances, fixtures and finishing detail make The Somerset among the most luxurious residences on Providenciales.
Just behind the Estate Homes is Stirling House, a larger building housing 24 one to three bedroom, ocean view condominium residences. With combined interiors and terraces ranging in size from 1,500 to 2,600 square feet, these stylish condo suites offer a generous amount of living space. Elegant penthouses, with roof top terraces, duplicate the charming features of those in the Estate Homes.
Beyond the reception fountain and croquet lawn, ten English Cottages offer a third option for a Somerset lifestyle. These two-story, 2,600 square feet townhomes boast private gardens fashioned after the tranquility of the English countryside, while just steps from Grace Bay beach.
With a gated entrance, enclosed parking, private walkways and lush tropical landscaping, The Somerset property serves as a private retreat for its owners and guests. The site itself is well-situated, tucked between The Regent Palms upscale condominium development and Rotary Park on a tranquil, and especially wide and gently sloping stretch of Grace Bay Beach’s 12 mile splendor.
A focal point of The Somerset’s grounds is a lengthy series of cascading pools. Although primarily designed as a residential property, The Somerset offers owners and guests all the amenities of resort living. The elegant, fountain-fronted reception area is also suitable for private parties. An on-site gourmet restaurant, beachfront cabana bar and grill, fitness center . . . and even an English-style rose garden.
Somerset offers resort management and a rental program for owners interested in renting their suites when not in residence.
