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. In 2007 we purchased an abandoned farm in Ponce, Puerto Rico and we now share our time between our two beautiful properties in St. John and Puerto Rico. After purchasing the farm we decided to share our home on St. John with people seeking to relax in the serene comfort and explore the beautiful island of St. John and surrounding outlying islands.

Why the Owner Chose Upper Carolina (Coral Bay, St. John, USVI):
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 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 Rum Trees that exist on the lot. Bay Grove is located on Bordeaux Mountain in the center of the island with easy access to both towns and all the beautiful north shore 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. There is a beautiful sunset view to the south and west over French Cap, St. Croix, and the Caribbean Sea.

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, deer, and donkeys, watching the sunset to the South over French Cap, views of St. Croix and the Caribbean Sea, to star-gazing with the singing croakies at night, Bay Grove is one of our most favorite spots on earth and we are glad to be able to share all the comforts and wonders of Bay Grove with you. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
