On The Market: Enjoy the Sound of the Surf at Recently Reduced Calabash Boom


Soak up water views and enjoy the sound of the surf at Calabash Boom house, above.

You’ll never tire of listening to the waves lapping the shoreline just a stone’s throw away from this unique and private Calabash Boom home.

This three bedroom, two bathroom, pod-style house was recently reduced to $595,000 from $655,000, explained 340 Real Estate broker/owner Tammy Donnelly.

“What makes this property unique is that great sound of the surf from the home’s quasi-waterfront location,” said Donnelly.

Located across the street from the Coral Bay harbor area, this Calabash Boom home affords sweeping views of the East End and the British Virgin Islands and allows you to keep an eye on your boat as you relax on your deck.

“You could keep your own boat or a dinghy just across the street,” said Donnelly. “A fisherman or sailor’s delight.”

While this Calabash Boom home is found on the quiet side of St. John in the Coral Bay area, its convenient location means you’re never really isolated.

“This house is nestled among mature trees just across the street from the water’s edge,” Donnelly said. “And it is on the bus line. Plus you can walk right over the hill to Shipwreck Landing Restaurant and shops.”

Relax on one of the multiple decks at this Calabash Boom home while soaking up those cooling trade winds. There are two separate units on the roughly one-third of an acre of property. The layout of an upper home and a lower home offers plenty of possibilities, Donnelly explained.

“There are multiple options for living either in one section and renting out the other section, or rent out both for two separate, income producing units,” she said.   

Inside the lower home, find a spacious and airy living room, a comfortable loft bedroom, a bathroom, a second pod bedroom and a recently remodeled kitchen.

“The kitchen was recently upgraded and features new tumbled marble counter tops and brand new cabinets,” said Donnelly.

The upper home on the property consists of a bedroom, one bathroom, a kitchen and living room as well as both upper and lower decks with water views.

With a fully fenced yard and even space to expand, this Calabash Boom home would be ideal for families with children or dogs, Donnelly added.

“There is a fully fenced in yard, so the property is dog- and kid-friendly,” said the 340 Real Estate broker/owner. “And the property goes up the hill a ways from the upper cottage so there is room to add on as well.”
