CALABASH BOOM — Soak up stunning views of Coral Bay’s Johnson Bay, across to East End and out to Tortola and chain of British Virgin Islands dotting the horizon from this unique property on Calabash Boom.

The property at 29 FJ-1 Calabash Boom is a 0.231-acre of land with two separate, one bedroom, one bathroom cottages is for sale for $595,000, explained Lynn Giovanna of Islandia Real Estate/Sea Glass Properties.

“There are extraordinary unobstructed views of Coral Bay, East End, Tortola, the BVI chain and beyond from these two, well-appointed one bedroom cottages located in Calabash Boom,” said Giovanna.

The cottages are tucked on a hillside in Estate Calabash Boom in the Coral Bay area of St. John. While you will feel worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Cruz Bay, the funky shops, fun restaurants and convenience stores of Coral Bay are just a few minutes away.

The property boasts mature landscaping and offers plenty of space to expand, Giovanna added.

“This Calabash Boom property has lush landscaping throughout and room to add a main house and pool,” said Giovanna.

The main cottage, called Giovanna’s Giardino Al Mare, is a masonry cottage with two levels of living space. The full bedroom and bathroom are located on the lower level while the comfortable living area and well appointed kitchen with stainless steel appliances are found on the upper level.

Step out of the living area onto spacious deck and soak up those water views as you enjoy a sun downer and watch the stars twinkle to life in the sky above. Giovanna’s cottage also boasts native stone detail in the fully paved driveway area.

The second cottage on the property, called Francesco Sorride In Mare, is a one-bedroom studio style cottage with a spacious deck and endless water views. Inside find a fully-stocked kitchen with new appliances and a cozy dining nook. The remainder of the cottage is encompasses the comfortable bedroom and living areas.

Francesco’s cottage also features a full bathroom with a private, outdoor mason and stucco shower. Just off the parking area, find a beautiful fish pond filled with Koi, goldfish and guppies with a native stone wall and a relaxing fountain and waterfall.

Both of these two separate cottages are busy short-term rentals, offering a new owner plenty of potential, explained Giovanna.

“Both cottages are currently income producing short term rentals,” Giovanna said. “You can continue to rent them out, or you can live in one while you rent out the other to help offset costs.”

With cooling trade winds, jaw-dropping water views and beautiful detail throughout, the Giovanna and Francesco cottages really must be seen to be appreciated.
