Estate Belvedere

Overview

6 14 6 + 1/2

An electronic gate ushers you into Estate Belvedere's magnificent four acres, past a fenced formal garden with a fountain, and back into a part of St Croix's Danish history of centuries past.

The centerpiece of this estate is the sugar mill dating back to 1763, a place where sugar cane was refined into precious sugar and the molasses into Cruzan rum; other ruins of the old plantation still grace this lovely island property. Extensive historical research was done by the current owners in both St Croix and Danish archives, and after several years of careful and loving restoration, Estate Belvedere is now receiving guests fortunate enough to enjoy its unique history, spectacular landscaping on spacious grounds, and its beautiful interiors.

The sugar mill is the central gathering place for everyone. The mill's entrance opens to an art gallery in the round, complete with the old Danish brick floor, showcasing the owners' collection of Caribbean art and historical memorabilia. A powder room with a hand-painted tropical mural is tucked off to the side. Built to encompass the curve of the sugar mill are the living area, gourmet kitchen and home office area, which open through french doors onto an expansive terrace looking out to the sea, set with cushioned furniture for the cocktail hour and lazy stargazing when night falls. A covered pavilion is just off the kitchen on this terrace, with a handy pass-through/bar to the kitchen for easy serving, providing a shaded, cool spot for alfresco dining.

Three air-conditioned suites on two levels of the mill named sunrise, hibiscus and jungle suites offer luxurious privacy. Outside, a staircase winds up and around the sugar mill to its very top and to spectacular long-distance vistas in every direction. A hand-painted mural maps the islands you see in the distance from this high vantage point. Off to one side of the estate are old plantation ruins of long ago where vivid bougainvillea now bloom part of this area has been made into a lovely patio for conversation or quiet reading, where cool trade winds prevail.

Estate Belvedere's extensive and beautifully-preserved ruins include a classic Caribbean welcoming arms staircase and graceful arches framing the lush gardens, providing a fascinating look at sturdy Danish stonework done over 200 years ago. Accessed via one of the old stone staircases is the tower building, a modern two-story pavilion with two very spacious, air-conditioned ocean and coral suites, each suite with a large living area, a full kitchen and two queen beds. These colorful and completely equipped suites are perfect for family privacy, and further, enhance the child-friendly nature of the estate.

Just beyond is the garden cottage, built as a new extension of the ruins, its entry patio incorporates some of the old stone rubble walls. Air-conditioned and very private, this suite also offers a sitting room with a small kitchen and a queen bedroom.

Walkways connect the buildings and the ruins, meandering under tall, shady trees, past fruit trees and glorious tropical gardens fenced by elegant wrought iron, displaying riots of vivid flowers and exotic plants, and through green manicured lawns. The pool house, the generous swimming pool, and the air-conditioned home gym are situated beyond the sugar mill and tower building, the pool area and surrounding lawn are screened by trees and shrubbery for complete privacy.

Estate Belvedere is a masterpiece, an important bookmark in St Croix's colorful history. Every modern convenience and amenity is here, the decor is today's classic Caribbean, but the spirit of early island days prevails. A perfect place for families or for building more memories with close friends, time spent within this elegant Estate will be relished and remembered by all fortunate enough to find this very special property.
