Charlotte Amalie house description

Located on a ridge 300 ft. above town, the newly built Outrigger House affords views of the mesmerizing Charlotte Amalie harbor with cruise ships, yachts, marine ports, downtown and the neighboring Water & Hassel islands' vistas.

Construction of Outrigger House began in 2012. A lot of thought and planning took place in the building process. Renowned Caribbean Architect, Michael Helm, & Interior Design Specialist, Twila Wilson, teamed up in this project to ensure that your stay is a pleasant & memorable one. Caribbean breezes will flow through the many open spaces throughout the property keeping the house at a comfortable cool temperature.

This property is replacing the former St. Thomas Archbishop's home which had a frail wood structure unable to withstand the passing of Hurricane Marilyn in 1995. Most of the stone walls located in the landscape remain untouched. The 1.05 acre property was bought by the current owners in 2008 & almost immediately native trees & flowers were planted in the perimeter where the main house used to be. Today, you will be able to enjoy some of the fruits from the old & new trees: seasonal mangoes (May through Sept), & all year round papayas, bananas & passion fruit among others.

The 4 post king size beds, night stands, kitchen cabinetry, tables, shelves, handrails, stairs, windows & door frames are made and crafted using local mahogany wood. Outdoor furniture is mostly teak, including a nicely cushioned Bali Bed with lots of pillows located in the Veranda.

There are 4 equal sized Master Bedrooms--1 of the Master Bedrooms is located on the ground floor with easy access (no steps) and the remaining 3 Master Bedrooms are located in the upper level. Everyone will have the best bedroom. There is also a powder room (toilet & wash bowl) conveniently located on the ground floor.

All 4 Master Bedrooms have wall mounted air conditioning units, have a King Size Bed, Wi-Fi, Wall mounted HDTV, In-suite bathroom (toilet & easy step in shower) with his & hers washbowls, spacious walk-in closets, private balcony with Harbor & Town vistas & i-Phone docking station with Digital Radio Alarm Clock.



The kitchen is fully equipped with a 6 burner Viking gas stove / oven, a French style refrigerator / freezer, dishwasher, espresso & regular coffee maker, microwave, toaster, blender & much more. It also has a breakfast nook with pool & harbor views as well as a wet bar (ice maker, wine cooler, wine rack & sink) which is also accessible from the outdoor Terrace & Pool areas.

Yes! There is an infinity edge solar heated pool from where you will enjoy Harbor and Town vistas as well as cruise ships' sunrise arrivals & sundown departures mimicking beautiful giant sized floating lit up birthday cakes. Wi-Fi is also available in the pool area.

The Family Room area is located in the upper level and equipped with a big screen HDTV with Satellite & Blu-Ray / DVD player.

The living room is a comfortable seating area with 25 ft. high ceilings good for lounging or leisure reading while listening to your favorite music playing on the Bose sound system with an i-Phone docking station to play your favorites and a CD player with a 50 page album stocked with a wide variety of music choices.

The dining room table accommodates 8 adults and there is also plenty of outside seating in the 75 ft. long veranda, including a picnic table. A list of private chefs and catering services are available from owners.

A big Terrace / Picnic area is perfect for weddings, birthdays & other celebrations & will lure those guests who enjoy Barbecuing. There is a Weber grill, a Picnic Table & several enchanting seating pockets......all nestled among the lush bamboo as well as the hibiscus and orchids' landscape. Wi-Fi is also available in the Terrace / Picnic area.

A 'M'Ocean' Studio is also available below the pool deck with its private bathroom (powder room) equipped with dumbbells, yoga mats & Pilates exercise balls, and, of course, with a large window facing the harbor.

And to ensure that you have uninterrupted electrical power, Outrigger House has its own Generator with an automatic transfer switch.

Outrigger House is located in an exclusive residential area and has its own private electronic gated entrance with a spacious parking area which can accommodate up to 6 cars.

Outrigger House's location provides easy & close access to historic downtown, waterfront, French Town, duty free shopping, beaches, golf course, sea aquarium, butterfly garden, water sports, Sky Ride, fine dining, ferry & seaplane docks & airport.

Come visit and be among the first guests to experience the comfortable, relaxing & luxurious ambiance at the Outrigger House!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Steve and Maria Lammens live in St. Thomas where Maria is a Dance & Fitness Instructor and Steve is President of a Construction Company. They have spent the last 1 1/2 years building the dream home in Paradise for the enjoyment of their guests.

                      Why the Owner Chose Charlotte Amalie:
                      This property is special--the location has breathtaking vistas and it has a little history. Before the hurricanes of 1989 (Hugo) and 1995 (Marilyn), it was the Catholic Bishop's home. In 2008 Steve and Maria bought the property and it still has some of the old walkways through the lush trees on the 1+ acre property that were used for quiet moments.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      You will enjoy the harbor, neighboring islands & town views from the seat in the corner of the pool and just about anywhere you are in the house. Also, watch for the parrots that fly around the property or walk through the fruit trees planted on the property to pick your limes, mangoes and 'carambolas' (star fruit). Or simply relax on one of several decks with terrific views and gentle breezes. Outrigger House's proximity to all attractions (beaches, water sports, historic downtown, duty free shopping, fine dining, golf course, tree top canopy tours, sight seeing, ferry dock, airport & more) make it easy for guests to get around.
