Sit back, relax and enjoy the views of Fish Bay, Ditleff Point and beyond.
Sliding doors can bring in the breeze, or close for air conditioning.
With two spacious master suites and a separate private one-bedroom cottage all perched on a hillside in Fish Bay, Unicorn by the Sea offers exceptional views from every single room.
The three-bedroom, four-bath villa, extensively remodeled just a few years ago, is for sale for $1.595 million. The home features sweeping views of Fish Bay, Ditleff Point and beyond from each of the well-appointed rooms, explained Islandia Real Estate broker/
associate Marty Beechler.
“Unicorn by the Sea is perched high on a hillside overlooking Fish Bay, Ditleff Point and the Caribbean Sea to St. Croix,” said Beechler. “This awesome view is enjoyed from every room including the separate guest cottage. The home was completely remodeled only two years ago and is easily accessible via paved public and private estate roads no more than a
10 minute drive from Cruz Bay.”
The main house boasts an expansive great room as well as an open-air gourmet kitchen, Beechler explained.
“As soon as you enter the house the view captivates you immediately as you look across the living area which is usually open to the breeze and the sunshine streaming in across the deck,” he said. “This area can also be quickly closed up should one prefer air-conditioned comfort. A large gourmet kitchen complete with an island seating area is bright and
tastefully adorned in a tropical motif.”
The main living space also includes a dining area as well as both outdoor and indoor seating to take full advantage of those stunning water views. With air conditioning an option, no one will be uncomfortable in Unicorn by the Sea.
“Just past the half bath is the glass door to the study which has ample comfortable seating from which to enjoy the sound system, wide screen Sony and of course the fabulous views south to the horizon,” said
Beechler. “ Or just one touch of the remote and the A/C kicks in when you need to put on the chill.”
The two master suites, each with en suite baths and outdoor decks, are located on the lower level of the main house, just steps away from the crystal clear pool.
“Two air-conditioned master suites are located on the pool level,” Beechler said. “Oversize impact resistant sliders show off the amazing view of Ditleff Point and the Caribbean Sea from both bedrooms looking beyond each room’s tiled outdoor deck.”
“The bedrooms are tastefully furnished with cheerful decor and a Caribbean flair,” said the Islandia Real Estate broker/associate. “In addition to the en-suite full baths, an outdoor native stone shower is also available for a touch of variety.”
The inviting pool and deck area which includes a full a wet bar is sure to be the center of entertainment at Unicorn by the Sea.
“The kidney shaped concrete pool is only steps away from the two master suites and is surrounded by a generous deck area complete with a gas barbecue grill and wet bar ready for an afternoon or evening of outdoor entertainment,” said Beechler.
A separate guest cottage is situated on the 0.82-acre property to afford the perfect amount of privacy, Beechler added. “Also located on the property is a one bedroom guest cottage situated below the pool area just far enough away from the main house to afford its occupants a bit of privacy when preferred,” he said. “It has it’s own entrance from the driveway as well to make it practical as a separate stand-alone dwelling for guests or a long term tenant or caretaker.”
Unicorn by the Sea is a popular vacation rental already, but the home would also be ideal as a long-term rental or a family residence, Beechler explained. “Unicorn is currently an active vacation rental villa generating an attractive income stream for its current owners when they are not using the home themselves,” he said. “Unicorn by the Sea is a delightful example
of Caribbean style living, perfect for a vacation retreat, a permanent residence or a bit of both.”
