Description of Ventana
Located in a prestigious neighborhood, this traditional Caribbean mansion sits on over 2 acres on a scenic hilltop overlooking spectacular views of Charlotte Amalie's harbor, town and tropical sunsets.
An avenue of palms leads from the entrance through lush tropical gardens to the brick courtyard, carport, and into the spacious, elegant Great Room. This large living area, furnished with plush, comfortable seating, a baby grand piano and accented with warm mahogany pieces, is the heart of Ventana.
Just off the Great Room is the covered dining gallery and wraparound verandah set with a sofa, chairs and a hammock for relaxing. The adjoining kitchen features custom cabinetry, a Viking gas range and Sub Zero fridge, and there's also a private pantry area for wait staff which can double as a home office area.
A few steps from the Great Room take you to Ventana's upper level and to two bedroom/bath suites, both with air-conditioning, cable TV and marble baths. A few steps down from the Great Room is the large king air-conditioned master suite complete with cable TV, a sofabed, a generous marble bath with mirrored french doors, and its own private patio just outside. From the master bath, a doorway and a few more steps access the adjoining exercise room.
Walkways threaded through the gardens and lawn lead to the compact air-conditioned two-twin bedroom and bath, situated in a charming small poolside cabana separate from the main house.
From Ventana's brick terraces and the dramatic horizon pool, you can watch the cruise ships come and go by day, and enjoy the magic of twinkling lights of our harbor and town at night. Ventana celebrates Caribbean style with its captivating views, superb gardens, plentiful outdoor living spaces, restful colors and original island artwork; villa aficionados will appreciate the drama of this vacation estate's perfect privacy in a gracious old-world setting.
