On The Market: Enjoy Stunning Down Island Views from Ixora


Views and breezes abound at the five bedroom villa atop Ajax Peak.

The stunning water views from Ixora are matched only by the elegant lap pool which stretches across the expansive deck.

The five bedroom, four bath villa located on Ajax Peak adjacent to V.I. National Park land is for sale for $1.45 million, explained Islandia Real Estate broker/owner Merry Nash.

“Besides the sweeping water and island views, one of the best features of this house is really the long, lap pool,” said Nash.

Nestled on a hillside on Ajax Peak, Ixora is conveniently located close to just about everything on St. John.

“Another big plus is the mid-island location which places the house midway between Cruz Bay and Coral Bay and just a short hop to the V.I. National Park’s North Shore beaches,” Nash said.

After finishing a few early morning laps, stretch out next to that spacious pool and soak up the stunning views from the expansive deck. Cool off in the shade from the perfectly situated gazebo.

Watch the full moon rise over Coral Bay harbor below and enjoy the cooling breezes which grace Ixora on a steady basis.

You’ll surely find it difficult to tear your gaze away from the British Virgin Islands lining the horizon past Hurricane Hole while the lush forests of Bordeaux Mountain fill the south and southwest views from the home.

Ixora consists of three buildings connected by the 60-foot pool and tiled walkways through the mature fruit trees and lush landscaping. The bedrooms are located in two buildings nestled on each side of the pool, while the main living spaces are found in the main house in the middle.

An east bedroom wing features a master bedroom with en suite bath as well as two additional bedrooms on a second level which share a bath. In the western wing, find a second master bedroom with en suite bath as well as an additional guest bedroom with en suite as well.
