Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Northside - Outrigger House
4 Master Bdrm 5 Bath Luxury Home w Breathtaking Views
Located on a ridge 300 ft. above town, the newly built Outrigger House affords views of the mesmerizing Charlotte Amalie harbor with cruise ships, yachts, marine ports, downtown and the neighboring Water & Hassel islands' vistas.
Construction of Outrigger House began in 2012. A lot of thought and planning took place in the building process. Renowned Caribbean Architect, Michael Helm, & Interior Design Specialist, Twila Wilson, teamed up in this project to ensure that your stay is a pleasant & memorable one. Caribbean breezes will flow through the many open spaces throughout the property keeping the house at a comfortable cool temperature.
This property is replacing the former St. Thomas Archbishop's home which had a frail wood structure unable to withstand the passing of Hurricane Marilyn in 1995. Most of the stone walls located in the landscape remain untouched. The 1.05 acre property was bought by the current owners in 2008 & almost immediately native trees & flowers were planted in the perimeter where the main house used to be. Today, you will be able to enjoy some of the fruits from the old & new trees: seasonal mangoes (May through Sept), & all year round papayas, bananas & passion fruit among others.
The 4 post king size beds, night stands, kitchen cabinetry, tables, shelves, handrails, stairs, windows & door frames are made and crafted using local mahogany wood. Outdoor furniture is mostly teak, including a nicely cushioned Bali Bed with lots of pillows located in the Veranda.
There are 4 equal sized Master Bedrooms--1 of the Master Bedrooms is located on the ground floor with easy access (no steps) and the remaining 3 Master Bedrooms are located in the upper level. Everyone will have the best bedroom. There is also a powder room (toilet & wash bowl) conveniently located on the ground floor.

About Steve Lammens
Steve and Maria Lammens live in St. Thomas where Maria is a Dance & Fitness Instructor and Steve is President of a Construction Company. They have spent the last 1 1/2 years building the dream home in Paradise for the enjoyment of their guests.
Steve Lammens purchased this house in 2008
Why Steve Lammens chose Northside
This property is special--the location has breathtaking vistas and it has a little history. Before the hurricanes of 1989 (Hugo) and 1995 (Marilyn), it was the Catholic Bishop's home. In 2008 Steve and Maria bought the property and it still has some of the old walkways through the lush trees on the 1+ acre property that were used for quiet moments.
What makes this house unique
You will enjoy the harbor, neighboring islands & town views from the seat in the corner of the pool and just about anywhere you are in the house. Also, watch for the parrots that fly around the property or walk through the fruit trees planted on the property to pick your limes, mangoes and 'carambolas' (star fruit). Or simply relax on one of several decks with terrific views and gentle breezes.
Outrigger House's proximity to all attractions (beaches, water sports, historic downtown, duty free shopping, fine dining, golf course, tree top canopy tours, sight seeing, ferry dock, airport & more) make it easy for guests to get around.
