Paradise has an address – above Towers Estate over towards Frenchman's Cay. Did you ever see such a beautiful place that you had to pinch yourself to make sure you were really there? Welcome to Paradise! The breath-taking views await you from sunrise to sunset and beyond. At night the twinkling lights of St. Thomas and St. John are enchanting. The expanse goes from Norman Island, to St. John, to St. Thomas, to Soper’s Hole at West End, and to Jost Van Dyke. This new 3-bedroom home offers tropical leisure and comfort on both levels with wrap around balconies on each floor. It speaks fun, happy, and relaxed. Perched 600 ft. high on the Towers Estate hillside up above Ft. Recovery and looking down on the Sir Francis Drake channel, boats passing along provide constant enjoyment.
Light abounds in Paradise Villa, with the main living room exposed on all sides, where glass doors slide back into the walls. The indoor living area merges onto the outdoor infinity edge pool deck with covered dining area. The main living area has a mural of a tropical landscape to complement the bougainvillea draping the slope surrounding the pool area. For guests, a powder room is located on the main level.
The master bedroom on the ground floor has access to the pool and deck separate from the main room. This bedroom has an en suite bathroom and glass block walk-in shower with access to a walk-in closet. Furnishings with crisp white slats throw light back through the rooms. King size beds whisper comfort, and promise an easy transition as you wake up and breathe in the day. On the wall entering the master bedroom is a plaque that says “Paradise ain't cheap,” and certainly the luxury isn't kept secret.
This delightful home has the feel of a traditional beach house, with its tropical paintings lining the staircase leading to the guest bedrooms. One bedroom has two queen beds and en suite bath. The second bedroom has a king size bed and walk-in bathroom leading to the office on the other side. With a desk at each wall, the office is a functional work space or private retreat.
The European-style kitchen shines with modern stainless steel appliances; abundant lighting, and solid surface counters. Washer, dryer and dishwasher are all neatly tucked in; the pantry provides abundant storage.
Completed in 2006, modern amenities are prevalent throughout the house including air conditioning in all bedrooms and the office. A high-definition flat screen is wall-mounted, so as not to deter from the Channel view in the living room. Low maintenance was a priority in the construction. Your Paradise is available for immediate occupancy. If you are ready, paradise awaits.
