On The Market: Views and Green Amenities Make St. John Livin’ Unique


Enjoy a refreshing dip while soaking up views of the BVIs and Coral Bay harbor.

With stunning views of the Coral Bay harbor and the jewel-like string of British Virgin Islands, it will be difficult to pull yourself away from the private plunge pool and expansive deck at St. John Livin’.

Located in an elevated portion of Estate Carolina, yet close to the dining and shopping of the quaint town of Coral Bay, the one-bedroom, one-bath home is for sale for $649,000, explained Islandia Real Estate sales associate Jane Kelly.

While the view alone will make your jaw drop, St. John Livin’ boasts numerous amenities as well as the latest in green construction, Kelly explained.

“There are a number of great things about St. John Livin’,” said Kelly. “Part of what makes this a great purchase are the ‘green’ amenities; bamboo flooring, trex decking, and the photo voltaic system, to name a few.”

“The  photo voltaic system (or PV system) is a system which uses solar panels to convert sunlight into electricity,” Kelly said. “This feature significantly helps to reduce the cost of electricity for the villa.”

The outdoor space also includes a flat area which would be ideal for a buyer with a green thumb, Kelly added.

“This is a ‘picture perfect’ home with attractive, indigenous landscaping,” said the Islandia Real Estate sales associate.

“And there is a large, flat lawn that would be perfect for a garden.”

This Caribbean cottage style home includes a great room, complete with a tiki bar, and open style kitchen with custom hard wood cabinetry. Open the sliders and stop out onto the 700-foot trex deck to soak up those views and enjoy the increased living space.

“This home has over 700ft of trex decking which totally enhances the livable outdoor space with the phenomenal Caribbean, down island and  Coral Bay views,” said Kelly.

Designed by local Architect Bill Willegerod, the high quality home takes advantage of cooling trade winds and views while supplying the perfect Caribbean charm.

Tucked on the hillside in the laid-back Coral Bay area, St. John Livin’ will sway you into a relaxed lifestyle.

“This sweet neighborhood has underground utilities, a gate to keep out the donkeys and a paved drive for easy access to the home,” said Kelly. “High quality construction, custom cabinetry, tasteful decor, a pool and a spa are what gives this villa value. Add that to the easily accessed drive to St. John Livin’ and it culminates in a very relaxing, low maintenance, stress free lifestyle.”

St. John Livin’ would be perfect for someone looking for their second home and, with its successful short term rental history, the villa could even off-set some of those second home costs, Kelly explained.

“The ideal buyer would be someone who is looking for a second home and someone who would also like to defer some of the costs of maintaining a second home by continuing it as a short term rental,” said the Islandia Real Estate sales associate.
