On The Market: Enjoy Water, Breezes and Convenience at Innstead


Sunset views and outdoor living space abound at Innstead.

Perched on a quiet hillside in the Estate Enighed neighborhood, Innstead offers beautiful water views and cooling trade wind breezes with the convenience of near-town living.

This two bedroom, two bath home is for sale for $649,000, explained Holiday Homes of St. John broker owner Christie O’Neil.

“Innstead has a fabulous location,” said O’Neil. “The home is convenient to everything.”
Nestled on a quiet cul de sac atop Jacob’s Ladder, the restaurants and nightlife of Cruz Bay and the alabaster North Shore beaches are all just a short drive away from Innstead.

Enjoy fantastic water views across Pillsbury Sound from the spacious tiled deck. Soak up the colors of a stunning Caribbean sunset and watch the lights of St. Thomas twinkle to life in the distance.

With the two bedrooms at Innstead located on separate floors, the home offers a variety of living arrangements, explained O’Neil.

“Innstead is ideal as either a two-bedroom, two-bathroom single family home, or it also works as two separate units,” said the Holiday Homes of St. John broker owner.

The flexible floor plan features those beautiful water views from both levels. Upstairs find one bedroom and one bathroom, a comfortable living area and a cheerful kitchen. The covered deck expands the living space at Innstead, allowing for al fresco meals while gazing at the stars.

Downstairs find a spacious studio with the second bedroom and bathroom. This unit could be rented separately from the upstairs unit, or use both as a single residence.

The gentle grade of the property offers even more potential, O’Neil added.

“The home is on a very gentle grade, so the entire one-third-acre property parcel is usable,” she said. “There is plenty of space to expand with an additional building or add a beautiful, large pool.”

The home features native stone details, tiled floors, air conditioning in both bedrooms and roll-up hurricane shutters on the oversized covered deck. With mature trees and colorful landscaping, you’ll feel a world away from it all at Innstead. But just a few minutes will have you at the nearest grocery store or gourmet restaurant.

A new owner looking for help paying the mortgage will be glad to know that Innstead is already an income producer, O’Neil explained.

“Innstead has a very active short-term rental program with many repeat guests who have fallen in love with the cooling breezes and great views,” said the Holiday Homes broker owner.

While priced similar to condo offerings on St. John, Innstead offers a great value for an all masonry home with plenty of potential.

“This all-masonry construction has been well-maintained,” said O’Neil. “It is a better opportunity than buying many of the condos in the same price range. I think this home is a gem.”
