Amy Land-de Wilde presents
Surround yourself in the well-preserved history of Clairmont Mill! This spectacular five-acre hilltop estate with sweeping Caribbean Sea views was once featured on the cover of Architectural Digest as one of the fantasy homes around the world and for good reason! The estate includes a distinctive five-bedroom great house that is built around and within a historic sugar mill – a rarity on St. Croix! There is plenty of indoor and outdoor living area all perfectly arranged around the 18th-century mill, with a gourmet kitchen at its base and a lookout bedroom suite at the crown of the mill—the crow’s nest. The great house hosts a swimming pool surrounded by ample deck space with incredible Caribbean Sea views in every direction. Three of the bedrooms, including a master suite, are housed inside the sugar mill. The lower-level executive suite is located on the same level as the great room, complete with a private lanai in a garden setting and bath en suite.
Additionally, there is an art room, with a half bath and wet bar, situated off the pool deck. The room’s romantic setting allows natural light and scenic views to fill the space – an inspiration for any artist!
This Caribbean estate has historic ruins, a detached cottage, classic architectural elements including grand archways throughout the corridor, soaring cathedral ceilings tied into the sugar mill, Caribbean-style shutters, Danish brick interspersed throughout, tray ceilings, and mahogany stairs. All of these amazing features were built into the sugar mill by the well-known builder, Michael Helm, in 1990.
Clairmont Mill is the dreamiest home in the Caribbean, no wonder it was featured as a fantasy home!
