Thank you all so much for your thoughts, prayers and well wishes as we weathered an unprecedented double Category 5 hurricanes in September! We are safe and secure and beginning the process of trying to rebuild St John. Please be patient as service and WIFI are very limited. Once the airport and post office have reopened – it will be much easier to get back to business. I can’t thank you enough and appreciate your patience during this difficult time. When communication return … I will be reaching out to one and all.
Chateau Margot offers a 6 bedrooms, 5.5 bath Villa, and is situated on Bordeaux’s eastern slope, approximately 1,000 feet above sea level. Overlooking the quiet community of Coral Bay, the impressive 4 1/2 acre estate affords majestic views of St. John’s East End as well as the British Virgin Islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Norman Island and several smaller cays along the Sir Francis Drake Channel.
Chateau Margot is only 1½ miles from the turn off Centerline Road that leads straight down to the amazing Maho Bay and Francis Bay Beaches and is only three miles from the center of Coral Bay. To reach the estate, travel five miles from downtown Cruz Bay, halfway through the Virgin Islands National Park, on cool tree-canopied Centerline Road. Only a short drive after passing the Reef Bay Trail entrance, the road to the estate forks off just to the right of the Bordeaux complex. From there, a half a mile of paved curves around and down to the grand white gates of Chateau Margot.
Chateau Margot shares a name with one of the world’s best wines. Margot, a red claret wine of “truly incomparable distinction and class”, always “well-balanced and unsurpassed by any other wine on earth” makes an appropriate namesake for this estate. Being distinctive and classy, Chateau Margot stands out and above most other St. John properties. This villa’s classic quality and exceptional superiority are impossible to deny when noticing the warmth of carved teak and mahogany woods; the lasting beauty and strength of polished granite, coral and marble tiles; and the innovative appliances, fixtures and electronics found all throughout its structure. The artistic blending of a rich regal decor, set within coolly casual curves and angles, adapted to the middle of a secluded tropical forest, gives this estate the well-balanced “premier grand cru” classification that it truly deserves.
Winding terraces, railed wooden decks, native stone paths, gardens and koi ponds connect Chateau Margot’s three large masonry buildings.
Completely renovated under the conception and direction of talented interior designer Adette Irish, this villa showcases original art from local artists such as: Amy Tracer, Les Anderson, Elaine Estern and Janet Cook-Rutnik among others. Well known names for linens, rugs and furnishings are artfully arranged against St. John handcrafted doors, cabinetry and native stone walls.
The interior living space is 6,165 square ft. and the exterior decking is 2,300 square ft. for a total of 8,465 square ft. of pure Caribbean paradise. The main level of the three-story Great House holds the living, dining and kitchen areas, as well as the infinity-edged pool and sundeck.
A center planter of Philodendron Selloum separates the living room doors on the right from the individual doors for office, laundry and powder room on the left. The office has abundant built-in desk space with two chairs, a computer with wireless satellite hookup, phone, fax, copier, scanner and set of encyclopedias for those guests who just can’t leave their work behind. The laundry room contains a washer and two dryers, iron, built-in ironing board and a working table. A small powder room is located between the other two rooms for quick and convenient access from the most used living areas of the house.
The Margot Master bed/bath Suite and the Pineapple and Parrot bedrooms are on the upper level of the Great House.
Situated beside the Great House, is the 2 level Guest House, containing both the Orchid and Bamboo bed/bath Suites.
Overlooking the Great House, is the free standing Coral Cottage, a very private bedroom/bath that also has a kitchenette.
All bedrooms contain ceiling fans, and each has its own A/C. This countryside villa is ideal for one, two or three families. The arrangement of the three upper bedrooms in the Great House is perfect for parents with younger children.
