On the secluded western tip of St. Thomas in the 397-acre gated community of The Preserve at Botany Bay, you’ll find this magnificent Villa, which can be yours for $14,5 million. Dubbed “Pearl,” this spacious Villa has 270 degree views over the surrounding cays, two exquisite half moon bays and the meeting place of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. This private, top-of-the line 19,000 square foot home has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a caretaker house and two guest cottages along with a four car garage, custom tiled pool and spa, and a large formal kitchen with cabinetry designed, by Clive Christian.
All interior flooring is of coral stone. A large gazebo with wrap around seating and the children’s play area with fish pond and fountain will entice one to the pool deck.
The main building upper level consists of the master suite, children’s room, great room, formal dining room, and a large formal kitchen. The lower level contains an in-law suite and laundry room, as well as a large playroom with a full bath, walk-in closet and arcade/game room that could be converted into another large master suite.
On the upper level of the pool house, decks extend where you will find a full outdoor kitchen, bar and gas grill for entertaining by day or night under the stars. Under the Gazebo is a large room that would make for an excellent Artists Studio or a place to display large works of art.
The two guest cottages are identical and include two queen beds, a screened porch, full bath, wet bar and walk-in closet. The “Tower” is an observation deck, and houses a second master suite, an office constructed of rich mahogany wood and tile floors and a dungeon. And, not to forget helipad access.
There are possibly some of the best views in the Caribbean from just about any spot on the property. You can see as far as the Spanish Virgin Islands of Vieques and Culebra and Puerto Rico on a clear day. The villa also overlooks secluded Mermaid’s Chair and Sandy Beach which is arguably the nicest beach on St. Thomas. James Edition has the listing.
