Featured on Christie's International Real Estate and the Wall Street Journal, “The Castle” is a sweeping 9,500 sq. foot property sitting atop a mountaintop. With landscape and design reminiscent of a fairy tale, this 6-bedroom 6-bath property in St. Croix is the epitome of luxury. The architecture is made up of white domes and Moorish designs, with panoramic views of the north and south coast.

The castle is spacious with a gatekeeper's cottage, a sandy, palm-lined beach and a beautiful sheltered lagoon. It commands a private, secure hilltop setting, surrounded by 102 acres of prime St. Croix real estate. Adjacent to the St. Croix Yacht Club, this property has three acres of beachfront land, a half-acre marina site, eight-acre commercial parcel (former university lab), and over 90 acres of pristine valley and hillside leading up to and surrounding ”The Castle.”

“The Castle” was previously owned and designed by Countess Nadia Farber who was enchanted by the extraordinary 360-degree views. She was born to a noble family in Bulgaria and was an operetta singer and actress, American entrepreneur, philanthropist and Spanish countess. According to Mansion Global, the Countess was well known in the area and often entertained guests or hosted celebratory parties. Folklore and a sense of nobility surrounds this property. The Countess was also known for giving back to the community to improve the life of others.

“He who helps the hospital helps the community”, she said. “The two things we need to support most in order for our community to thrive are our schools and our hospitals. Without the hospitals we are a family without a home”.
