                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: In 1968 Irene and her husband Stuart honeymooned on St. John in the US Virgin Islands. The rest is history... In the early 80's they introduced their young children to not just St. John but the US and British Virgin Islands. Although the dream was to move to St. John and begin a new life in paradise, it was not until 2000 that Irene, and her daughter Christine, and son Justin, together purchased the 8 acre peninsular estate known as Steele Point.

                      Why the Owner Chose Steele Point:
                      Steele Point Estate is perhaps one of the most unique, and stunningly picturesque, properties anywhere in the world. The property encompasses the entire Western Peninsula of the Island of Tortola. The estate is exclusively private, with three homes, all with magnificent views and unique tropical open architectural styles. Quite simply it was a most intriguing opportunity for the family to own not just a piece of paradise in the British Virgin Islands, but also one of the most impressive properties anywhere in the world.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Oh and did we mention the view? The peninsula itself is one of the many headlands that make up the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Beyond the channel is picturesque St. John however, the view from Gestalt is of the 7,000+ acres of undeveloped National Park. If the aforementioned views were not enough, from Gestalt you can also see BVI National Parks, Great Thatch Island, Sandy Cay, and Sandy Spit along with eight other islands. Another unique feature of this property is living on the very peninsula where quite literally the Atlantic and Caribbean converge. Furthermore being part of the Steele Point Estate this villa is directly in the center of not just the USVI or BVI, but all the Virgin Islands. Everything wonderful that the Virgin Islands has to offer is equidistant and easily accessible. Lastly, because the peninsula is a gated estate you have the privacy of a private island, but the convenience of being on BVI's main island.
