A tropical oasis set into the gentle green hills of St. Croix overlooking Green Cay and the Caribbean Sea. Through the gated entrance, park under the vaulted portico and enter this stunning home with soaring, vaulted cypress ceilings and an open layout with views from every room. The kitchen features a Viking gas stove and a Smeg convection oven to inspire the chef of the house. Large picture window and floor to ceiling built-in shelves with a rolling library ladder are the highlights of the home office. Privacy abounds with the expansive primary bedroom suite in the main house, a second suite with a loft in the pool house, a newly built casita with it's own rooftop deck and an elegant one-bedroom apartment. Ample outdoor entertaining space surrounds the mosaic tiled pool where you can relax and watch the sailboats go by. A grid tied solar system has been built adjacent to the main house zen garden (net metering has been applied for). A wifi run irrigation system and a 120 ft well with an automatic pump to keep the gray water cistern full protect this tropical paradise which produces mango, avocado, mamey sapote, passionfruit, tamarind, Surinam cherry, guinip, carambola, papaya, lime and coconut. Built out of steel reinforced concrete and steel reinforced concrete masonry, this house was built to withstand a sustained Category 5 hurricane simultaneously with an 8.0 earthquake on the Richter scale. The estate is fully self contained with an auto start generator, 30,000 gallon fresh water cistern, a 10,000 gallon gray water cistern and a reverse osmosis drinking water system.
