Perched high on the slope of Ajax Peak, Winsome House looks out over Coral Bay, Hurricane Hole, and the British Virgin Islands. Nestled into the hillside 800 feet above sea level, Winsome House offers sweeping views of the Caribbean and complete privacy and quietude.
Winsome House provides an enchanting Caribbean experience for two couples or a small family. Built in 2004 in the style of the old plantation houses, a Great House provides the dining and entertainment spaces and a separate, two-story building houses the equal-sized bedrooms and baths. 1300 square feet of deck unites both buildings into one indoor/outdoor living space.
Glimpsed through five mahogany French doors, the sea is never far from view. The ambiance of the tropics is reflected in the Tommy Bahama and Indonesian furnishings throughout the house.
Mahogany kitchen cabinetry stocked with Villeroy & Boch dinnerware and Calphalon cookwear and cutlery will please the most discriminating guest. A beautiful carved wooden table provides an elegant dining experience when weather dictates. On a 30-foot, covered terrace, alfresco dining is possible in all but the most inclement weather.
An unobstructed view of the sea from the pool and the deck beckons for lazy days at home. Spacious decks, both covered and uncovered, accommodate all degrees of sun worshipping.
Separation of the bedrooms from the Great House and from one another assures privacy and independence for all guests. On the same level as the Great House, the lower bedroom opens onto the main deck and the pool through two mahogany French doors. The large shower, from which the sea can be viewed, opens onto a brick and native stone patio.
Up a wide, brick staircase separating the bedrooms from the Great House is the upper-story bedroom with king bed. The bedroom opens onto a private, covered deck with just possibly the best view in the house. The shower too with its sea view is sure to delight.
Situated ideally at mid-island, Maho Bay and the string of North Shore beaches are but a five-minute drive away. Ram Head, Salt Pond and the solitude of the East End are reachable within fifteen minutes, as are many of the island’s best hiking trails. Casual to fine dining is close at hand in Coral Bay or a mere 20 minutes away in Cruz Bay.
