RECORD SALE REALIZED FOR VILLA DELFINA IN THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS

The Luxury Villa in Peter Bay on the Caribbean Island of St. John Sells Through John Foster Real Estate, an Exclusive Affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate

Peter Bay, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands— Villa Delfina, Peter Bay’s most fabulously equipped luxury villa, has sold. Listed for US$8,495,000, it realized the highest price for a property sold on St. John in the past two years. The sale was closed in 45 days by Peter Briggs, listing broker and owner of John Foster Real Estate. “We handled both sides of this transaction, bringing together a seller from the West Coast and buyer from the East Coast,” says Briggs. “This illustrates the diversity of the Virgin Islands marketplace and collective outreach of John Foster Real Estate and Christie’s International Real Estate.” The 13,100-square-foot, five-bedroom residence was constructed in 2007. The luxury villa affords spectacular views and was designed to provide incredible privacy along with ample room and facilities to entertain. Among the highlights are a main living area; a coral-stone courtyard; and a covered balcony overlooking an infinity-edge pool surrounded by private courtyards replete with palm trees, a wet bar, a grill, a hot tub, hammocks, and alfresco dining areas. The lower-level entertainment center, unrivalled in the Virgin Islands, comprises a billiards room, a wet bar, a media room, a projection and sound system, pinball and electronic games, a business center, and fitness equipment.
