Description: “Camden House, is an ultra-contemporary beach house located on the North side of Grand Cayman. Resting on a large, elevated sand ridge at Rum Point with over 100 ft of prime beachfront on one of Cayman’s most spectacular shorelines, this futuristic beach house makes a design statement of it’s own. With 8,000 sq ft of living space, this fine example of luxury real estate incorporates 4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, a striking swimming pool and stunning roof terrace with uninterrupted sea views.
The exceptional design of Camden house is original and uncompromising with clean, modern lines and bold architectural angles, truly a multilevel masterpiece combining modern style, convenience and comfort. The fractured crossover of levels create unique interiors and exteriors which in turn embrace the best of tropical outdoor living, with dramatically angled walls and overhangs that maximize shaded outside space. Three roof terraces provide ample space for alfresco lounging as well as striking views of the surrounding landscape, including the lush Mastic Reserve to the east. The largest terrace, found on the uppermost level, delivers a 70-foot long party deck complete with garden, state-of-the-art Savant entertainment system, shaded outdoor kitchen and bar and an artificial turf putting green.
On the lower level, the light-filled central living area benefits from floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to the elements, blurring the distinction between the inside and out. A turquoise L-shaped lap pool cuts a sharp angle in the wooden deck mirroring the bold lines above, with the hammock adorned private beach beyond. The streamlined kitchen, complete with Miele and Bosch appliances, was custom-built by award-winning UK firm, Roundhouse Design. Its crisp white lines softened by natural stone textures and oak cabinetry which infuse warmth while connecting the different open-plan areas for cooking, dining, entertaining and working. The custom finishes reflect an unparalleled level of quality for those who appreciate the finest of details. An intimate snug and adjacent child’s playroom looks out on a secret courtyard and the fourth bedroom is neatly tucked away behind a floor-to-ceiling pocket door. Slicing through the three floors of the house, a dramatic steel cantilevered staircase clad in oak and edged with glass divides the house, delivering modernity upon entering the residence. On the upper floor, all three en-suite bedrooms have glassed-in balconies, providing uninterrupted views of the Caribbean Sea. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than in the master bedroom where a floor-to-ceiling glass wall provides a magnificent 180-degree view.In addition, the landscaping is kept in perfect harmony with this luxury property’s architecture. Boundaries between garden, pool and beach are blurred at one with the island of Grand Cayman.Inspired by the innovative minimalism of contemporary spanish architecture, this bespoke Rum Point home, won the Governor’s Award 2015 for Design and Construction Excellence in the Cayman Islands.
