Cinnamon Stones sits high on the hillside of Estate Catherineberg, a small prestigious community of luxury villas, surrounded by the Virgin Islands National Park. Overlooking Cinnamon Bay, Peter Bay, Francis Bay and Johnson's Reef, you can see from Lovango in the west, north to Jost Van Dyke and east to Tortola. It is a big, breathtaking view The house is on one acre of beautifully landscaped land. The steep hillside is covered with old stones and a very special thirty foot high rock outcrop. The colors of the stone were an inspiration for the interior of the house. The house was designed by St. John architect and artist Carolyn Caldwell, and constructed in 1999 by her husband, Ken Betts. It takes advantage of all the best features of Caribbean homes: thick concrete walls, an abundance of louvered doors on all sides, ceiling fans and cool stone floors. Skill and craftsmanship are evident throughout this very special house. The Great Room is painted a cool gray lavender, the color of the British Virgin Islands and the sea at dawn and dusk, which you see through six louvered mahogany French doors. All the mahogany doors and windows were handcrafted on St. John. The floor is imported Italian limestone. There is a vaulted kingpost ceiling over the sitting area which has two very comfy sofas, perfect for watching a movie. Or you may prefer choosing something to read from a collection of over 200 books of contemporary fiction - many award winners and best sellers of the past ten years. Original paintings by well known St. John artists hang throughout the house. Off the Great Room is a small office with desk, fax machine and more books. A guest bath is adjacent. Every door in the Great Room opens to the gracious verandah and the glorious blue sea. The comfortable teak furniture on the verandah includes rockers, big arm chairs, a love seat and a dining table for enjoying the indescribable view. You can sit in the swinging rope chair facing the rock shelter, the faint remains of stone terraced farming, the tyre palm grove, the bay rum tree and beautiful Cinnamon Beach below. At Cinnamon Stones you are surrounded by the beauty of the woods and the sea. The house is a tribute to architectural restraint and a sensitivity to Caribbean style. It is place to love and to return again and again.
