A professional kitchen, below, will have you dining al fresco and soaking up the views from Villa Rendez-View.
Feel all your stress melt away as you gaze upon the mesmerizing Caribbean Sea from the expansive covered decks at Villa Rendez-View.
This three bedroom, two and a half bathroom home located in Estate Rendezvous and Ditleff is for sale for $985,000, explained Islandia Real Estate Broker Associate Marty Beechler.
The home’s convenient mid-island location is just one of its many draws, explained Beechler.
“Villa Rendez-View is conveniently located off Gift Hill Road, just above South Shore Road (Route 104) only a short drive from Cruz Bay,” said Beechler. “This charming three bedroom all masonry home features fabulous views of Rendezvous Bay, Ditleff Point, and the Caribbean Sea east to Rams Head and south to St. Croix.”
The home’s flat driveway and lack of stairs, both rare and coveted finds on St. John, also make the home inviting, Beechler added.
“Park your vehicles on the nice level area at the top of the paved driveway and walk just a few feet on a level path — no stairs — to the front entrance,” he said. “Every room is on the same level — a rather unique benefit not so readily available on St. John.”
Once you enter Villa Rendez-View, however, it’s all about that water view and the shaded, covered deck areas, Beechler explained.
“Enter into the great room and your attention is immediately drawn to the captivating view of Rendezvous Bay through the French doors that open to the covered deck which runs the entire length of the house,” he said. “The deck is completely tiled and is also accessible from the two corner bedrooms.
It provides attractive, covered outdoor living area for dining al fresco or just limin’ around while taking in the view and enjoying a sea breeze.”
An indoor dining room located between the living room and kitchen, offers another option for spending an evening in at Villa Rendez-View. And while the fine dining of Cruz Bay is only a short drive away, the professional grade kitchen at the villa will surely entice you to whip up a few meals at home.
“The kitchen features custom cabinetry, a six burner commercial-quality range and oven, a large center island and two large identical refrigerators with pull out freezer drawers,” said Beechler.
There is also a comfortable living room, which offers the ideal spot to curl up with a good book, as well as a half-bath located next to the front entrance, Beechler added.
With access to the main deck from the master bedroom and guest bedrooms, luxurious lazy mornings spent soaking up the view will hard to limit.
“The master bedroom opens to the main deck, has a king-sized bed and en suite full bath with a large tiled shower that opens to its own little deck with a privacy fence to provide a one-way view to the sea,” said the Islandia Real Estate Broker Associate. “The guest bedroom is located on the opposite corner of the house and shares a full bath with the third bedroom and also has an indoor/outdoor shower with a one-way view of Rendezvous Bay.”
What really sets Villa Rendez-View apart from other properties on St. John is in the details, explained Beechler.
“The owner of the villa is an accomplished builder who constructed this home with special care and pride in workmanship,” Beechler said. “The foundation and exterior walls are solid poured reinforced concrete.
The rafters are an integral part of the wall and are steel reinforced horizontally and vertically.”
With plenty of space to add a pool and numerous amenities, Villa Rendez-View literally has it all.
“Amenities include DISH network and wifi DSL, fully shuttered exterior, a 5KW generator, 200 amp electrical service with transfer switch and sewage treatment plant with gray water irrigation system,” said Beechler. “Additional living space could be added by enclosing the lower level masonry foundation columns and beams. The home already has two separate electric meters for this purpose.”
While Villa Rendez-View is currently in use as a full time residence, the home would also make a great short-term vacation rental, Beechler added.
“And, at only $985,000, it offers the discerning buyer quality at a reasonable price,” he said.
