Description of this Residential Type Property for Sale in St. Croix:
A dream in the making, this impressive estate is yours to finish to your liking.Three separate buildings on 3.69 acres on St. Croix's most coveted beachfront, this iconic property has been the talk of the island for years. The romantic Italianate style main house, as-yet unfinished, has over fourteen thousand square feet of interior living space, an additional 14,412 square feet of exterior living space and a roomy 955 square foot garage. The finishes already in place are of the highest quality and include marble, granite, and limestone.
Enter the main residence and you'll be enthralled with the grand winding marble staircase hugging the wall to the floor above. Look up to a fabulous fresco adorning the striking entry hall ceiling.
The dramatic interior design style continues from room to room with detailed coffered ceilings, more frescoes, and everything is delightfully oversized Ã¯Â¿Â1/2n each room, the ceiling height, and the lake-size swimming pool sitting beachside. Of similar stature is the unfinished fountain flanked by stately columns which occupies the rear of the grounds.
Arches line the seaside gallery - once again over scale and voluminous. The many areas designed for grand entertaining include the poolside alfresco kitchen with coffered ceilings and detail on the wood cabinets. Columns frame views of grand palms planted throughout the estate. The tropical atmosphere and lavish ambiance abound throughout.
In fact, one could imagine the residence all a buzz with social activity, the galleries full of fashionably dressed ladies, leaning over the balustrade and trying not to lose a single word of what was being said below. Certainly, this is a residence truly suited to lavish affairs and laughter echoing the hallways.
Located a short distance away on the grounds is the Secondary Residence which in and of itself is a charming island home. The floor plan includes 6,625 square feet of living space consisting of five-bedrooms, 7.5 baths, a swimming pool, ample outdoor living space and a generator. There is a separate two-story outbuilding which could easily be a lovely guesthouse on its own. It was last used as an office and storage but was a residence previously. The architectural design contrasts that of the main house and reflects West-Indian style flair which includes cathedral open rafter ceilings,several spacious covered and open outdoor galleries, West Indian style storm shutters which are aesthetically pleasing and functional and wainscoting. Some furnishings remain on property and the kitchen is outfitted with appliances (working order unknown) and lovely wood cabinetry.
