On The Market: Enjoy Privacy and Panoramic Water Views at Wild Orchid


Views from Wild Orchid include a large stretch of the pristine V.I. National Park.

Inhale the intoxicating scents of jasmine and orchids while taking in the views stretching from Ram’s Head to Bovocap Point at Wild Orchid.

This Estate Fish Bay home, which offers elevated privacy and panoramic water views is for sale for $980,000, explained Holiday Homes broker/owner Christine O’Neil.

While the home’s flexible floor plan allows for a variety of configurations, Wild Orchid is currently operating as two separate living units. The home could easily, however, function as a four bedroom and three-and-a-half-bath villa, O’Neil explained.

“This flexible floor plan lends itself to a variety of options that could appeal to most buyers,” she said. “The layout currently is income producing as two separate long term rental units — above and below — which each featuring two bedrooms and two baths, as well as private living areas and kitchens.”

“Or buyers could occupy one unit and rent the other unit either for long- or short-term which would be good income,” said the Holiday Homes broker/owner. “The two units could also easily be reconfigured as a four bedroom single family home. With the addition of a pool or hot tub or both — plans are available — it would rent well on the short term market too.”

Inside, you’ll find custom woodwork crafted from exotic hardwoods like Ipe, Yellow Heart, Santa Maria, Manchichi and Cumaroo complimented by beautiful native stone work. Large bedrooms and an open flow floor plan leads out to stunning views from two levels of tile decks at Wild Orchid.

The home also includes a special “spa deck,” which is waiting for a new owner to install a spa or hot tub and architectural plans for a 10-foot-by-12-foot masonry swimming pool have already been approved as well.

It is easy to picture yourself soaking in the hot tub under the stars and enjoying the tropical scents of flowers wafting on the wind.

With views of tropical sunrises and sunset colors reflecting off the cliffs of Reef Bay, Wild Orchid offers privacy from its elevated perch. With views overlooking V.I. National Park lands, the pristine vista will remain just that, O’Neil explained.

“It’s hard to choose the best feature of Wild Orchid,” said O’Neil. “It might be the lovely, steady breezes or the private location. The views extend across the National Park down the south shore coast all the way to Ram Head. Those views are exquisite and mesmerizing and will continue forever.”

Nestled in the upscale Estate Fish Bay subdivision ‘Skytop,’ the neighborhood boasts quiet privacy, O’Neil added.

“Just as the name implies, ‘Skytop’ is the upscale area at the top of a mountain with incredible water views,” she said. “The area has a good number of desirable rental villas where repeat visitors return year after year, but also has year-round appeal for residents who appreciate the privacy and quietness offered by the location.”
