Stonehouse enjoys an upscale and very convenient location in Great Cruz Bay. This is a preferred and well-established neighborhood that consists of expensive waterfront villas like Tennis Villa, Gull Cottage and Splash. Stonehouse sits on a large west facing lot with views of the harbor, St Thomas and blazing sunsets. This is a private and peaceful location, yet it's a 5 minute walk to a white sand beach with swimming and boating in the calm Caribbean waters at the Westin Resort. For dining options, it's an enjoyable walk to a beach side restaurant/bar under swaying palms at the Westin, or it's a 5 minute drive to the restaurants, bars and fine shopping in the nearby village of Cruz Bay.
This is a spacious 2900 sq ft, one level home with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, all surrounded by a sea of colorful tropical flowers. StoneHouse is an excellent example of classic Caribbean architecture with hand cut native stone walls; terra cotta tiled floors throughout, 10 foot tall mahogany doors, lush bountiful interior gardens, multiple decks and patios with beautiful views, and cathedral ceilings with ceiling fans and screened skylights. You park above the house and descend steps to the entry patio. To your left is the 1200 sq ft great room with the living, dining and kitchen areas and a deck that runs the entire 30 foot length of the great room. Beyond the great room on the left is the guest bedroom/bath with twin beds plus a very private deck. To the right of the entry patio are the master bedroom and the adjoining library bedroom, both of which share a large bath.
The roomy living and dining areas are comfortably furnished with rattan furniture, including a couch, loveseat and 3 club chairs. The great room doors are 8.5 feet tall and 25 feet wide and open to reveal beautiful views of sailboats at anchor highlighted by flaming sunsets and the twinkling lights of St Thomas. A glass topped wicker dining table seats 6-8, while a breakfast table seating 4-6 is set among the profuse foliage of the interior gardens. The entertainment package includes a 31" flat screen TV/DVD, wireless high speed internet and a stereo/CD.
The kitchen has tiled countertops with mahogany cabinets and is fully equipped with a cook top stove, a double oven with traditional and cook top ovens, dishwasher, trash compactor, s/s refrigerator/freezer, coffeemaker, blender and a complete assortment of cookware, server ware and dinnerware. A tiled countertop/bar with icemaker and sink separates the kitchen from the other living areas, while a washer/dryer is located off the kitchen.
The oversized master bedroom (300 sq ft) has a king bed and fully screened sliding doors that open to lovely harbor views and a private 200 sq ft deck that also overlooks the harbor. The library bedroom (queen bed) is so named because it formerly was the library. It adjoins the master bedroom and also has a harbor view. The master and the library bedrooms both share an oversized tiled bath with a garden shower and a screened skylight. The second guest bedroom (2 twin beds) enjoys great privacy on the opposite end of the house. It too is large (250 sq ft) and has screened doors with lovely harbor views, plus an adjoining bath with a tiled garden shower and skylight.
