This week's news that the Trust for Private Land has helped the VI National Park preserve what we all know as the Maho Bay beachfront is more than welcome. But there's more to worry about.
There's a 13.8 parcel of land, adjacent, that's prime for either a luxury resort development or as many as 25 half-acre home sites.
On its blog, Islandia Real Estate said, "The National Park along with the Trust for Public Land is doing a phenomenal job preserving the island of St. John."
Nonetheless, "There remains a rare opportunity to acquire this white sandy beachfront acreage in the confines of the Virgin Islands National Park."
The asking price for Estate Maho Bay is $23 million.
"This privately owned north shore beachfront property offers flexible zoning for any number of uses or a combination thereof; exclusive family estate holding, private planned residential community, ultimate upscale beachfront resort," Islandia explains on its listing.
The property has 850 feet of shoreline and a "crescent shaped beach of powdery white sand." "Well suited for luxury resort development … (or an) exclusive enclave of of luxury estates."
