On The Market: Swim and sail from your front yard at Villa St. John

Perched on the shoreline in Chocolate Hole, Villa St. John offers amazing views and steady breezes right off the water.

The six bedroom, six bath villa is for sale for $3.45 million and would make the perfect getaway for large families or corporate retreats, explained Holiday Homes broker/owner Christie O’Neil.

“This property has it all,” said O’Neil. “The location is excellent — right on the beach — so you can moor your boat right in front of the house. Plus there is a large, sunny pool and a delightfully private hot tub.”

The property includes a main house and a guest house spread across the 0.63-acre beachfront parcel. Stretch out in the sun by the huge pool while watching the boats swaying at anchor in Chocolate Hole. Or relax with a book in the shade on the deck, which spans two levels.

Inside, custom hardwood cabinetry and stainless steel appliances make the kitchen a destination unto itself. Stay in and enjoy a movie in the open, two-story great room, which boasts native stone  walls and oversized windows.

Dine indoors off the living room or for the ultimate Caribbean living, eat al fresco on the covered deck just outside and listen to the waves gently crashing on the shoreline below.

All six of the spacious bedrooms are masters complete with en suite baths and whirlpools. Decks off each of the bedrooms ensure that everyone will take full advantage of soaking up those stunning views.

With so much space, the house is ideal for large groups looking for a little luxury.

“Both the main house and guest house are all masonry structures with large bedroom suites,” said O’Neil. “Villa St. John would be great for a family compound or to continue as a successful rental villa with the ability to accommodate larger groups. Or a buyer could live in one building and rent out the other.”

The grounds at Villa St. John are professionally landscaped with mature coconut and palm trees. The private hot tub will beckon you to spend evenings under the stars. While there are many impressive features at Villa St. John, the best part of the property is its location, explained O’Neil.

“The location is amazing,” she said. “You can go down and lay on the beach; you can take out a sea kayak, go stand up paddle boarding or sail a sunfish or a larger boat all right from your front yard.”
