Sir Richard Branson’s passion for the British Virgin Islands began more than 40 years ago, when he purchased the now-famous Necker Island and set about turning it into one of the world’s most exclusive private island escapes. In 2007, Branson purchased the nearby Moskito Island, located within the protected waters of the beautiful North Sound. His goals in development included preserving and protecting the island’s natural beauty, while also creating a prestigious community of like-minded homeowners as his neighbors. Over the ensuing years, Branson and his team carefully developed the 120-acre island, with nine three-acre private estate home sites available for selective sale, saving one estate for his own family.

These lots have all been strategically positioned for secluded single-family estate homes. Each shareholder currently holds equal and joint ownership in the remaining 90 acres of undeveloped greenbelt lands, communal docks and shared facilities, thereby reducing operating costs for each homeowner, and ensuring social and managerial success for this exclusive island community.

Moskito Island’s Lot 8 presents a rare, exquisite opportunity to be a part of this incomparable homeowner community, with a premier position just a short walk from the island’s communal estate docks, tennis and basketball courts, pool, hot tub, game rooms, gym, water sports center and fine dining facilities. One of the most alluring features of this windward-facing waterfront property is direct access to the secluded white sandy beach on Lime Tree Bay within walking distance of the Manchineel Bay Communal beach with its outside dining pavilions and barbecue area. This unique property offers views toward Blunder Bay and on to Anguilla Point and the undeveloped shorelines that contribute to incredible sunset vistas. The lot features two charming, independent stone homes, each with kitchen, living and dining areas; one is a spacious two-bedroom, two-bath guesthouse, and the other is a one-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath main house with lovely decks and lounging areas nestled in the trees just above the beach. The main construction area above these cottages has been cleared for development of a primary residence on a grander scale.

The island’s 90 acres of walking trails and gardens include a tropical nature preserve with many endemic species of flora and fauna, and a thriving flamingo pond and animal sanctuary. The surrounding turquoise waters of the Caribbean are perfect for sailing, kitesurfing or venturing out for a dive or snorkel. Completely enveloped by tropical sun, crystal-clear waters, cooling trade winds and year-round 80-degree temperatures, an opportunity like this rarely surfaces for the discerning individual who yearns for a truly secluded private island retreat.
