My Notes

Edit
From the moment you drive though the stately columns of this East End, mountain top residence, you realize you have entered one of the most exceptional settings in the Virgin Islands and understand why it is aptly named ''Paradise Found''. While standing on the 1,000 square foot deck you can see the majesty of Buck Island and on a clear day St. Thomas, St, John, Tortola and Virgin Gorda, as
well as the many colorful sail boats and cruisers a the St. Croix Yacht Club. During the early evenings cruise ships often show off their lighted decks as they head down island. To the east you can enjoy the splendor of the lush green mountain peaks, and the Contessa?s Castle that sets atop the adjacent ridge. For the early riser, mornings provide a glorious tapestry as the sun rises out of the ocean. The south shore begs your attention with its white caps as the waves crash against the rocks.
The almost constant breeze makes sitting outside under the cabana a luxury and it eliminates the need for air conditioning. Many nights you may actually need a light blanket while lounging on the deck watching a movie or your favorite show or sports team.
This spectacular home is high enough on the ridge to see both the north and south shorelines, and yet low enough to hear the crashing of the ocean waves. Often frigates and pelicans fly by as they search for food. You may need a bigger birdhouse to accommodate them.
Sixty percent of the 1,000 square foot outdoor living space is covered to provide a comfortable shaded lounging area. A custom built outdoor kitchen with built-in ceramic grill and 25 pound ice maker offers hours of outdoor cooking, dining and entertaining. A convenient pass through window between the indoor and outdoor kitchens, makes food preparation and serving a pleasure. Two chandelier lights offer plenty of light for reading or playing games and directional lighting over the cook area makes evening cookouts a joy.
In the event of inclement weather, a covered porch which spans the entire length of the back of house offers protected passage from the inside living area to your cabana.
The remaining 40 percent of the deck is uncovered for those who enjoy sunbathing.
As you enter the interior living space of the residence, you will notice exceptional quality and care have been taken in renovation. An abundance of windows allow for plenty of natural light and create frames for the spectacular views that surround this home. From the beautiful flooring to the custom built kitchen cabinets, stainless appliances, and granite, no expense has been spared.
The home boasts high ceilings with exposed beams, warm colors, a comfortable atmosphere and beautiful Caribbean style.
It is a perfect place for a romantic refuge whether as permanent home or vacation getaway, or wonderful home for a small family. The home provides a superb opportunity to enjoy some of the island?s most beautiful panoramic views or at the end of busy day a peaceful oasis.
This is a truly exceptional property in a rare setting abundant with privacy and beautiful dual shoreline views.
And this home is not only pretty, it's also smart! Practical amenities include solar power consisting of 18 panels which typically generate enough energy to limit monthly power bills to an unbelievably low $20 to $30! Below the home is a storage/laundry room which also serves as a storm shelter. There is an auxillary 600 gallon "water buffalo" cistern which gathers water from the cabana roof and that can be used for watering plants, etc.
