ESTATE SHERPENJEWEL is the pinnacle of perfection amongst St. Thomas, United States Virgin Island homes. It resides several hundred feet above Magens Bay, repeatedly voted as one of the top ten beaches in the World. There is a well maintained hiking trail which leads thru Nature Conservancy land, from the border of the property to the white sand beach and stunning blue Caribbean waters below. The views are spectacular, and no other home on island can boast of such a perfect location.
Adjacent parcels are also available for a truly ultra-private estate. There is ample green space which aptly separates this property from the closest neighbor, assuring that no development will come near your sanctuary. Hundreds of acres below the home are owned by The Nature Conservancy and assure that surrounding property will remain undeveloped.
Entry thru the gates of Estate Sherpenjewel is majestic, with the immediate realization that privacy and nature abound. The road winds thru the manicured gardens, past the first three undeveloped parcels, until you arrive at the perfectly situated home. Wild parrots fly by talking to each other. Deer wander into the yard with a watchful eye. Fruit bats scour the skies for insects at nightfall. Hermit crabs rustle the nearby bushes. Iguanas soak in the sun. There is an abundance of local trees, plants, and shrubs which are maintained to perfection. The property is amazing in that it captivates you even before you see the home.
Beautiful mahogany entry doors open to a very warm living room, a focal point of the home for gatherings and parties of all sizes. However, this area also opens to the covered veranda via sliding doors, which further extends to the pool deck. Because of the pleasant temperatures in the Virgin Islands throughout the entire year, the flexibility of this home to open up to its environment is quite amazing, as it allows a seamless joining of inside and outside.
