                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: We designed and built Bay Grove as our home in 1994, intending St. John to be our final destination. Having purchased a farm in Puerto Rico in 2007, we now share our time between our two beautiful properties in St. John and Puerto Rico and decided to share our private home on St. John with guests wanting to relax in the comfort of a home and explore the beautiful island of St. John and surrounding outlying islands.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bordeaux Mountain:
                  We travelled to St. John on business in November of 1990 and fell in love with its beauty. We searched the island for the perfect piece of property to build our final destination home. We spent much time sitting on pieces of property at all hours of the day and nite just so we could find the perfect spot. We sat on parcels with views, parcels near the ocean, parcels on both ends of the island, parcels near town(s), and parcels in the woods. We finally found the perfect parcel on the top of Bordeaux Mountain where we built our home nestled in the grove of Bay Trees that existed on the lot. Our home is located on Bordeaux Mountain in the center of the island with easy access to both towns and all the beaches, and is one of the few lots that actually has a yard with grass! The 1200 foot elevation of Bordeaux Mountain combined with the constant flow of the tradewinds allows the fresh, cool, tropical air to flow through the large screened windows which cools our home naturally. We have recently (and reluctantly) cleared some of the Bay Trees to clear a view of the sunset over French Cap from the front deck.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We have always enjoyed the coolness of the altitude on Bordeaux Mountain, and the quiet, serenity of our home's location. It's a great place to relax, unwind, and get away from it all. From enjoying the presence of the humming and sugar birds, occasional wild deer, and donkeys, watching the sunset over French Cap, to star-gazing with the singing croakies at night, our home, Bay Grove, is one of our most favorite spots on earth and we are glad to be able to share all the comforts of our private home and Guest Cottage with you. We hope that you will appreciate and enjoy what Bay Grove has to offer. Thank you for your interest in Bay Grove.
