Watch the boats in the bay and soak up sunsets over St. Thomas from Grandview.
With postcard perfect views of Great Cruz Bay harbor and beyond, deeded access to two beaches and the convenience of being only a few minutes from town, Grandview has it all.
This two bedroom, two bathroom home is available for $875,000, explained Holiday Homes broker/owner Christie O’Neil.
“The name ‘Grandview’ says it all,” said O’Neil. “This is a charming home above Great Cruz Bay with two equal master suites.”
The home is located in a private, quiet neighborhood on Roman Hill on a gently sloped 0.53-acre parcel about five minutes from the dining and shopping of Cruz Bay.
“The neighborhood is quiet and private,” said O’Neil. “Grandview is located on Roman Hill circle with spectacular water views over the center of Great Cruz Bay to St. Thomas.”
Grandview comes with deeded access to two beaches on Chocolate Hole and Hart Bay, plus access to the dinghy landing area on Chocolate Hole Bay.
Outside enjoy beautiful and mature landscaping with ample room to add a pool, explained O’Neil.
“There is plenty of room to expand,” she said. “Plus one could easily and inexpensively add a pool. The current owners have a boat, so they are on the water every day and do not want a pool.”
“When the owners are not in residence, Grandview does well on short term rental, even with out a pool,” said the Holiday Homes broker/owner.
Inside Grandview, find two air conditioned master suites each with en suite bath. An expansive great room leads into a charming open-plan kitchen and dining area. A covered deck wraps around three sides of the home for plenty of space to enjoy the breezes. There is also a large uncovered area, perfect for stargazing.
Constructed by St. John architect Bruce Roberston, Grandview is a classic Caribbean home with exotic hardwood and native stone details throughout.
The home is also energy efficient, explained O’Neil.
“There are great breezes at Grandview and superb sunset vistas,” she said. “And the home is energy efficient so electricity runs less than or around $100 per month.”
With stunning views of the harbor below, the ideal buyer might just be a boater, according to O’Neil.
“The perfect buyer of Grandview might be a boat owner who could keep an eye on their boat in the harbor below right from their deck,” said the Holiday Homes broker/owner. “The home would also be good for a small family, a single owner, newly-weds or a retired couple.”
