On The Market: Enjoy Stunning Sunsets in High Style at Riley’s Retreat in Estate Pastory


Chill out by the pool, on the covered deck area, in the kitchen, or in the bedroom at Riley’s Retreat.

Watch the tropical sun dip below the horizon while enjoying the cooling trade winds from the spacious covered, tiled decks at the exquisitely appointed Riley’s Retreat.

This six bedroom, five bathroom Estate Pastory home is for sale for $1.445 million, explained 340 Real Estate broker/owner Tammy Donnelly.

“Privacy and comfort describe this beautifully appointed, ocean view villa,” said Donnelly. “And you get that while enjoying the convenience of being close to Cruz Bay’s fine restaurants, bars and grocery stores, which are only one and a half miles away.”

Perched on a hillside in Estate Pastory, Riley’s Retreat offers jaw-dropping water views across Pillsbury sound to St. Thomas and even out to St. Croix and Puerto Rico in the distance.

“Enjoy cocktails and dine on the beautiful balcony with views of Pillsbury Sound and St. Thomas,” Donnelly said. “On clear days you can see St. Croix and Puerto Rico. From this balcony there is a gorgeous sunset about half the year, roughly from mid-October to mid-March.”

The six bedrooms at Riley’s Retreat are spread among two levels in a main house and a separate cottage on the 0.35-acre property.

“Riley’s Retreat has a total of six bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, and five bathrooms, in two separate apartments and a stand alone island cottage,” said the 340 Real Estate broker/owner.

The main house features stunning travertine floors, mahogany trim throughout, beautiful island stone  and genuine Venetian plaster walls. The upper level consists of three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a professional kitchen and an oversized great room.

The master bedroom boasts a grand en suite bath with a large stone shower and access to a charming outdoor shower as well. All three bedrooms have new split air conditioning units to ensure perfect comfort.

The spacious great room is anchored by a pool table, a Bose entertainment system and a 52-inch plasma TV. The kitchen on the upper level at Riley’s Retreat includes granite countertops, Brazilian cherry wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances and a large island.

A spacious balcony area offers the perfect place to enjoy meals al fresco at the outdoor dining table. Or kick back with a cool cocktail and enjoy the view from the comfortable covered seating area.

With the same travertine floors and mahogany trim throughout, the lower level at Riley’s Retreat boasts an additional two air conditioned bedrooms, one full bath and separate kitchen with custom cabinets and granite countertops. And you’re not giving up that view downstairs either, Donnelly added.

“The balcony on the lower level is equivalent to the main level balcony with the same spectacular view,” she said.
There is also a stand alone cottage on the property at Riley’s Retreat which features a full bathroom and decorative countertops.

While the villa is located just a short drive away from the world-class beaches of the V.I. National Park, the large pool might keep you home at least a few days.

“The pool area is very private and also has a hot tub,” said Donnelly. “The pool deck also includes a bar area to enjoy snacks and a conveniently located bathroom.”

The professionally landscaped grounds with mature fruit trees and solar energy system just add the appeal of this special Estate Pastory home.
