This stunning St. Croix estate was recently featured
in Architectural Digest, celebrating its unique and historic charms.
Painstakingly restored and built around an old stone windmill
from long-ago sugar cane plantation days, Clairmont Mill is set
like a jewel atop a breezy knoll and surrounded by green acres
of privacy in an unspoiled nature conservancy.
The grand entry hall invites you into this stunning
villa, elegantly furnished with original art and antiques and
accented by treasures and collections from Indonesia and from
other world travels. The Great Room encompasses part of the stone
mill; a few steps up into the mill itself brings you to the gourmet
kitchen, fully equipped with a Viking gas range, every spice and
condiment imaginable, and lots of space in which to create delectable
snacks and meals.
Bordering the Great Room is a covered alfresco dining
pavilion; a few steps lower is the blue-tiled pool and sun deck.
These areas enjoy breathtaking, limitless views of St. Croix's
North Shore and the aqua ocean beyond. A handcrafted teak staircase
spirals up within the stone mill to two separate air-conditioned
bedroom/bath suites which offer even better long-distance views
and cooling tradewinds.
The air-conditioned king master suite lies across
the entry hall from the Great Room; the fourth bedroom with a
bath and air-conditioning lies within the mill and kitchen area,
and has its own private entry.
Just off the pool deck is the fifth bedroom - a
private sleeping cabana, air-conditioned and with its own bath,
which may be set up with a queen bed or two twins.
This superb residence offers plenty of privacy for
everyone in a gracious and unforgettable natural setting encompassing
nearly 6 acres. Below Clairmont Mill are the centuries-old ruins
of the old plantation.
