Property description

Securely snuggled into the verdant green hillside of Bordeaux Mountain, Estate Chateau Margot is situated on Bordeaux's eastern slope, approximately 1,000 feet above sea level.

Overlooking the quiet community of Coral Bay, the impressive 4 1/2 acre estate affords majestic views of St. John's East End as well as the British Virgin Islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Norman and several smaller cays along the Sir Francis Drake Channel. This property is only 1½ miles from the turn off Centerline Road that leads straight down to the amazing Maho and Francis Beaches and only 3 miles from the center of Coral Bay. To reach the estate, travel 5 miles from downtown Cruz Bay, halfway through the Virgin Islands National Park, on cool tree-canopied Centerline Road. Only 3/10 of a mile after passing the historic Reef Bay Trail entrance, the road to the estate forks off just to the right of the famous Château Bordeaux restaurant complex. From there, a 1/2 mile paved drive curves around and down to the grand white gates of Chateau Margot.

Chateau Margot, like its nearby neighbor Château Bordeaux, shares a name with one of the world's best wines. Margot, a red claret wine of 'truly incomparable distinction and class', always 'well-balanced and unsurpassed by any other wine on earth' makes an appropriate namesake for this estate. Being distinctive and classy, Chateau Margot stands out and above most other St. John properties. This villa's classic quality and exceptional superiority are impossible to deny when noticing the warmth of carved teak and mahogany woods; the lasting beauty and strength of polished granite, coral and marble tiles; and the innovative appliances, fixtures and electronics found all throughout its structure. The artistic blending of a rich regal decor, set within coolly casual curves and angles, adapted to the middle of a secluded tropical forest, gives this estate the well-balanced 'premier grand -cru' classification that it truly deserves.

Completely renovated under the conception and direction of St. John’s talented interior designer Adette Irish, this villa showcases original art from local artists such as: Amy Tracer, Les Anderson, Elaine Estern and Janet Cook-Rutnik among others. Well known names for linens, rugs and furnishings are artfully arranged against St. John handcrafted doors, cabinetry and native stone walls.

Enter into the Great Room and let your senses be caressed by the soft breezes flowing around and down the hillsides into this magnificent airy space. Radiant tropical light glows through six sets of 8'x 8' screened sliding glass doors that wrap around three of the walls. Look out to see the glistening infinity-edged pool and lounge deck beckoning. Raise your eyes further and gaze at a most spectacular view of emerald crowned hills tumbling down to serene Coral Bay. See the translucent turquoise seas curve and tuck around the coastlines of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands.

The kitchen can be accessed from three different entryways: a hall from the living/dining room, a door near the grill on the pool deck and from a utility door near the parking area. A state-of-the-art Kitchen-Aid flat surface cook-top sits on a large dark-wood center island. The cooking surface is surrounded by a gold and brown granite countertop. Large storage areas are built-in below. All new Kitchen-Aid appliances, including a convection oven, microwave, dishwasher and side-by-side refrigerator are handsomely enclosed in pale creamy cabinetry. To the sea, make dining at the four-seat wicker table an exhilarating treat.

The tiled pool deck wraps around a 14 x 28 foot infinity-edged pool that has corner steps for entry. The depths of the pool go from 4 foot to 13 foot. For toddler safety, a nylon mesh barrier may be installed around the pool, by advance request. Six lounge chairs and six sitting chairs, placed around faux stone-top tables, can be arranged in many directions to capture the sun. Whip up a frosty blender drink and relax as you cook some fresh local-caught fish or other delicacies on the Weber gas barbecue grill.

Three bedrooms and two baths occupy the second story of the Great House. The Margot Master Suite is accessed two ways, by private entrance from the upper terrace garden by the koi pool, or through a door and staircase found out on the pool deck.

The garden entrance opens into the luxurious master bath. Open, airy and light, the vast size of this room is overwhelming. A 13-foot handmade granite-topped vanity, with double sinks, bronzed lighting, bronzed fixtures and a 10-foot mirror are perfectly built into a sidewall. Across, an alcove, with picture window views to the lily pond and Guest House, contains a platform Jacuzzi tub and a separate granite-topped vanity with mirror, drawers and a round padded stool. Off to the side, behind a privacy enclosure, there is a toilet and bidet. Besides both vanity's storage areas, there are beautiful built-in floor to wall cabinets, which add to the master bath's tremendous storage space.

The upper story of the Guest House, which sits beside a koi pond, is accessed from a terraced stone path leading from the main house's central entrance or from side steps near the lower Guest House bedroom. Comfortable Coral Cottage perches above both Guest and Great House. It offers an even more elevated, awe-inspiring view over Coral Bay and the down island chain. Enter the cottage and find yourself in a romantic private retreat. A bedroom/bathroom/kitchenette suite all in one, it becomes the perfect getaway.

Chateau Margot offers a quiet castle-like retreat away from the rest of the world. Being her own little universe of serenity, Margot may entice you to skip the day trip, and stay comfortably home, daydreaming in her warm embrace.

The villa accommodates a maximum of 12 adults plus 2 extra children 12 years or younger. Please call or email for extra person rates.
