On The Market: Exceptional Craftsmanship Evident Throughout Susanaberg Cottage


Custom woodwork inside and flat land outside set the Susanaberg Cottage apart.

Situated on just under a quarter acre of flat land on a quiet cul-de-sac bordering the V.I. National Park in a convenient mid-island location, the Susanaberg Cottage offers excellent potential to add a pool, a hot tub or even a garage.

The one-bedroom main house, with a separate wood frame cottage which offers the buyer extra income, was recently reduced in price from $695,000 to $650,000, explained Christie O’Neil, owner/broker of Holiday Homes of St. John.

While the open floor plan, wrap-around screened decks and expansive flat land offer numerous options for a buyer, the exceptional craftsmanship in the Susanaberg Cottage is really what sets the home apart, O’Neil explained.

“This home is one of the best built affordable masonry homes on the island,” she said. “The owner/seller lives on St. John and builds fine custom homes. He is an artistic woodworker who formerly made custom furniture in New Mexico and he’s well known in the Santa Fe art community as well.”

The builder obviously knew what he was doing. No detail was overlooked during the construction of the home. From the flexible floor plan to the wrap-around screened-in decking, which could easily lend to re-configuring sleeping quarters, the Susanaberg Cottage offers beauty and practicality.

The builder’s attention to detail is evident throughout the impressive home. The large open-plan living area features beautifully crafted wooden built-ins. Incredible custom woodwork is also found in the open-flow kitchen as well as the charming master bedroom and expansive bathroom in the main house.

“The builder paid incredible attention to details and crafted the home in a simple, but elegant style,” said O’Neil.

The home is located at the end of a road in a very private mid-island location bordering the VINP and on a rare track of flat land, O’Neil explained.

“The property is exceptionally flat and very private,” she said. “The home is located on a cul-de-sac, and bordered by National Park land. The flat land offers plenty of room to add a swimming pool, hot tub and even a tennis court.”

The separate cottage just adds to the home’s value, O’Neil added.

“The separate wood frame guest house is rented long term and provides good income cash flow,” said the Holiday Homes broker/owner.
