Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: The Villa was restored by Dr. Christian who grew up and resided in the residence until going off to medical school and returning to St. Croix to serve the community of her father’s birthplace. Dr. Christian kept the original architecture and basalt stone (locally called “blue bitch stone”) from the actual excavation of the property. This stone is a very hard volcanic stone used by the Danes on many of the historic buildings that are still evident in the city of Charlotte Amalie, a nationally acclaimed historic city and balusters that her father and mother sat many an evening together in the early days of their 64 years of marriage as they filled the molds with concrete and applied the stonework to the structure. Throughout the residence are relics of the life of her family from her grandfather’s mahogany bed to the crystal chandelier from her mother’s bedroom that now serves as a unique and stunning planter, to the pool that has a inlaid rose at its bottom at the same location that her mother’s rose garden was and much more. It is a home that captures all of the elegance of a family that has four generations that utilized this magnificent site for parties of over 200 persons that represented all levels of Virgin Islands society. The Christian family is a family that has kept the traditions of the Virgin Islands alive while providing the comfort and accommodations of a 21st Century vacation site. All rooms have air-conditioning but also have fans that are the traditional way that most Virgin Islanders enjoy the trade wind breezes entering the home.

Why the Owner Chose Dorothea, St Thomas, USVI:
The Villa and view are just plain stunning. From the pool and sun deck there’s a 180-degree panorama: patches of crenelated green hills floating on cobalt-blue water, where the cruise ships begin making steam as the cocktail hour gets underway. They’ll exit the harbor with the sun; long lines of twinkling lights voyaging into the dusk. 'Dr. Christian kept the name, Christian Villa but reversed the words as it was named by her father, for this was his pride and joy. You will agree once you see the property that you can as her father, Judge Christian, did enjoy sitting on the southern porch with a cup of hot tea or coffee as the cruise ships entered the port in the morning or in the evening with a cocktail of Cruzan Rum and coke, J&B on the rocks or a glass of wine as the cruise ships departed along with the sun giving you magnificent sunsets. All rooms have walls of solid concrete and open into their own bathroom. The southern and western porches have electrically operated hurricane screens/shutters that filters out 90% of the heat yet allows one to see the views of the harbor. At the touch of a button, you can filter out the sun, shade the porch or enjoy the brightness of the sun as it descends on the western and southern sides of the residence. And in the evenings, one can shutter the entire porch if one cares to as one leaves for additional security beyond the gated entrance. The pool, which overlooks the harbor is on the eastern side with its own bathroom and a refrigerator for those who want to access a cold drink or snack without having to go to the spacious kitchen that has a large French door refrigerator spacious enough to accommodate the tastes of all of the residents. The view of the harbor can be enjoyed through the glass French doors or windows from the sitting room, the dining room or the living room as well as from the various balconies or pool.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
million dollar views; fully handicap accessible
