Flag Hill, south central - 4 bedroom villa
This unique luxury mansion in a prestigious neighborhood sits on over 2 acres on a scenic hilltop, overlooking spectacular views of Charlotte Amalie's harbor and of tropical sunsets. An avenue of palms leads from the entrance through lush tropical gardens to the brick courtyard, carport, and into the spacious and very elegant Great Room. This large living area, furnished with plush, comfortable seating and accented with warm mahogany pieces, is the heart of Ventana.
Just off the Great Room is the covered dining gallery and verandah set with a sofa, chairs and a hammock. The adjoining, just-remodeled kitchen features custom cabinetry, a Viking gas range and Sub Zero fridge, and also has a private area for wait staff, which doubles as an office area with computer, fax and printer. A few steps from the Great Room take you to Ventana's upper level and to two bedroom/bath suites, both with air-conditioning, cable TV and marble baths.
A few steps down from the Great Room is the large king air-conditioned master suite complete with cable TV, a sofabed, a generous marble bath with mirrored french doors, and its own private covered patio just outside. A few more steps from the master bath access the adjoining exercise room.
Walkways threaded through the gardens and lawn lead to the air-conditioned twin-bedroom suite, situated in a charming small poolside cabana separate from the main house - and to the brick patios and dramatic horizon pool, from which you can watch the cruise ships come and go by day, and enjoy the magic of twinkling lights of our harbor and town at night.
Ventana celebrates Caribbean style with its captivating views, superb gardens, restful colors and original artwork; villa aficionados will appreciate the drama of this vacation estate's perfect privacy in a gracious, old world setting - five stars!
