Ixora is located more than 1000 feet above the Caribbean on a scenic mountaintop that overlooks Coral Bay and the British Virgin Islands (Coral Bay - northern hillside). This location ensures constant cooling breezes and morning wakeups heralded by a golden sun rising out of the cobalt blue Caribbean Sea. To the east lie magnificent views of Coral Bay, Hurricane Hole, and Norman, Peter, Salt and other islands in the B.V.I’s, while the lush forests of Bordeaux Mountain dominate the views to the south and southwest. Like its neighbor, Bayview, Ixora borders the V.I. National Park and is surrounded by beautiful tropical landscaping including verdant hibiscus, oleander, bougainvillea, ixora, coconut palm, banana, lime, and papaya trees. If you can force yourself to leave this stunning setting, the tranquil, turquoise waters and white sands of Maho and Leinster beaches (part of the National Park) are an easy 4-7 minute drive. Cruz Bay is a 15-minute drive and 6 restaurants in the Coral Bay area are a 5-10 minute drive.
Thee living, dining and kitchen areas are in the great house, midway between the bedroom wings. The east (left, looking at the water) bedroom wing contains a master bedroom/bath on the ground level, and two more bedrooms that share a bath on the upper level. The west (right) bedroom wing contains another master bedroom and bath plus a guest bedroom and bath, both on the ground level. The hot tub is located in the patio off the west wing. The spacious living and dining rooms and the kitchen are located in the great house. An atmosphere of comfortable tropical elegance derives from the use of terra cotta tiled floors, cathedral ceilings with exposed cedar beams, ceiling fans, rich mahogany interior cabinetry, indirect valance lighting and 14 varnished mahogany French doors. The living room contains colorful wicker furniture, artwork and accessories. The floor and ceiling surround sound speakers provide great sound quality for the stereo, and there are also exterior speakers for music on the pool and deck. A 32” flat screen TV/DVD provides the viewing entertainment.
Ixora was built in 1993, and in 2001 it was extensively refurbished by its second owner, a very successful and best selling author and historian who loved to relax in his island home. Ixora was once again extensively refurbished in 2007/08, and with its new appearance and elegant finish, one cannot fail to be impressed by the beauty and style of this lovely villa. At night the breathtaking views, the low voltage site lights, tranquil privacy and the fabled Caribbean moonlight all combine to produce an irresistibly romantic, peaceful and relaxing evening setting. Ixora is a non-smoking house.
For dining, there’s an interior mahogany table that seats 8-10, while the poolside table under the gazebo seats 4-6 and is ideal for lunches or cocktails. The kitchen is clean and modern with granite countertops and a granite bar/counter that seats 4, a 4-burner gas stove and oven, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, and a complete assortment of pots and pans, dinnerware, cooking utensils and equipment, and a telephone. A washer/dryer, outdoor shower and gas BBQ grill are located outside the kitchen.
