Tucked into an emerald green hillside, lies a very special property. Winsome House is an escapist’s dream...a world away, yet convenient to everything. Only a quick 5 minute drive takes you to the world renowned beaches of St. John. Ram Head trail, Salt Pond beach and the solitude of the East End are reachable within fifteen minutes, as are some of the best hiking trails on St. John. Both casual and fine dining as well as provisions are close at hand in Coral Bay. Cruz Bay lies just a few minutes more away.
Winsome House, a no smoking villa, is nestled into the hillside 500 feet above sea level. Enjoying cool breezes and sweeping views of the Caribbean guests can relax in complete privacy and quietude.
This enchanting Caribbean home offers state of the art conveniences including air conditioning, cable television, high speed WiFi, 40 inch flat screen HDTV and BluRay player with iPod dock...but there is so much more. Built in the elegant style of historic plantation homes, this villa is as beautiful as it is functional.
The inviting Great House provides interior dining and entertainment spaces, which open through handcrafted custom mahogany doors to a beautiful covered gallery for savoring an al fresco meal while enjoying the incredible ocean views. Island ambiance is reflected throughout with designer furnishings, hand selected for both beauty and guest comfort.
Immediately adjacent to the Great House is the two story bedroom unit housing two equal and elegant bedrooms and baths,ensuring privacy and independence for all guests. The lower king bedroom opens onto the main deck and the pool area through two mahogany French doors. The large shower with view to the sea opens onto a private brick and native stone patio.
A wide stone staircase leads to the master bedroom above also furnished with king bed. The master bedroom has its own private, covered deck with peerless views of Bordeaux Mountain, Coral Bay and the valley below. The en suite bath offers a shower with exposure to the Caribbean and the tropical gardens to the East. Both bedrooms pamper the guests with high quality bedding a bath linens to delight and soothe after a long day at the beach.
Custom mahogany kitchen cabinetry stocked with Villeroy & Boch dinnerware and Calphalon cookware and cutlery will please even the most discriminating chef. A carved wooden table provides an elegant dining experience when weather dictates.
Step outside onto the large ipe teak deck and enjoy a cool dip in the pool which is furnished with a solar cover to keep the water temperature balmy year round. Colorful, professionally maintained tropical gardens surround Winsome House and watching hummingbirds dart from flower to flower could become a new pastime. Both sun and shade areas beckon for lounging, with unobstructed views of the turquoise Caribbean, Bordeaux Mountain, and the islands and bays below making it very, very hard to leave this magical spot.
