Securely snuggled into the verdant green hillside of Bordeaux Mountain, Estate Chateau Margaux 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 and several smaller cays along the Sir Francis Drake Channel. This property is only 1 1/2 miles from the turn off Centerline Road that leads straight down to the amazing Maho and Francis Beaches and only 3 miles from the center of Coral Bay.
To reach the estate, travel 5 miles from downtown Cruz Bay, halfway through the Virgin Islands National Park, on cool tree-canopied Centerline Road. Only 3/10 of a mile after passing the historic Reef Bay Trail entrance, the road to the estate forks off just to the right of the famous Chateau Bordeaux restaurant complex. From there, a 1/2 mile paved drive curves around and down to the grand white gates of Chateau Margaux.
Chateau Margaux, like its nearby neighbor Chateau Bordeaux, shares a name with one of the world's best wines. Margaux, 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 Margaux stands out and above most other St. John properties.
