The Wall Street Journal recently featured our clients, The Stapleton’s, in an article about turnkey properties in the Mansions section. The article, In the Caribbean and Bahamas, Turnkey Properties Are the Biggest Luxury, shares how vacation-home buyers in hard-to-reach destinations opt for fully furnished properties.
Turnkey properties, or as the article calls them, “toothbrush ready,” are pretty common on St. Croix. As such, many homes are sold furnished or partially furnished. This 8,000 sq. ft. residence in Estate Shoys, named La Belle Hortense, is offered with tasteful art and furnishings, so you truly only need to bring your toothbrush!
The main house of this turnkey property has 4 bedrooms and 4 en suite baths. Plus, there is a detached one bedroom with one bath guest house. Outdoors is a beautiful courtyard, pool, BBQ and wet bar. Meanwhile, inside is a gourmet chef’s kitchen, deluxe wine cooler, spacious closets, and the finest in amenities and finishes. The home is a practical investment, too, with solar and net metering, private well and drinking water filtration, and hurricane resistant windows.
Perhaps one of the most important features…La Belle Hortense is just steps away from sandy Shoys Beach.
