The Dome House - A totally unique, mid-century modern architectural masterpiece that blends art and science in an extremely beautiful way! The 360 degree views from this commanding and peaceful knoll top are unparalleled on the island. Highlighting the 4600 sq ft interior is a 24ft. Lexan dome skylight. Functional as well as beautiful, you'll be amazed at the low maintenance costs!
The Dome House....An architectural masterpiece on top of the world where you can roam naked both inside and outside 365 days a year, watch the weather come and go, see the sun rise and sun set over the water, and be completely at peace.
St Croix, the largest (and largely undiscovered) of the US Virgin Islands, is home to this unique home, a mid-century modern work of art that sits above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean sea. The 360 degree views include both the north and south shore of the island, verdant hills and valleys, vast expanses of both green and blue, fiery sunsets, and a sky so full of stars you won't believe it. What you DON'T see are neighbors, highways, tall buildings, bright lights, or anything to remind you of the fast-paced and hectic world you long to escape from. Here, you can re-connect with nature. Find yourself. Be at peace. There's just no place like it.
The home was built in 1964 by Henry Rockefeller for his wife Happy. It has recently been tastefully remodeled and lovingly landscaped with native plants. And even though the home is a spacious 4600 square feet, maintaining it when your'e not there is not going to break the bank. Thanks to thoughtful engineering of both mechanicals and nature, your average monthly carrying costs will rarely exceed $250!!! And don't worry about security; the home is fenced and gated, and secure.
The home has five bedrooms, because no doubt you will want to share this oasis with your closest friends and family. You simply have to experience this home to fully appreciate how other-worldly it is. And once you do....you'll be hooked. Oh, and the price tag? You'd expect millions, but the asking price is a mere $1,499,000. No way to even get close to finding such a spot as this and building on it for even double that figure. This is an incredible bargain. And the peace you'll experience here? PRICELESS.
