i like the neighborhood but i do like line dried clothing and sheets
Stiphy, would you please share your opinion of the top 5 places to live STX that includes Judith's Fancy? Thx L
For me the top would be Judiths Fancy, Shoys, Green Cay, Queen Quarter, and Questa Verde (since Im looking for 5 and I liked living there). I like having an HOA to enforce some basic rules, even if I dont agree with all them. I also like having a neighborhood around me....Judiths is great as the houses are spread out but it still feels like a neighborhood with active walkers, joggers and bikers around all day and evening. I also used to live in Boetzberg and liked it there and I still have a house in Tulipan Welcome that I rent out now but used to live in and I always enjoyed that neighborhood too.
Of course others have thier own list and whats great about STX is there really are styles of housing to fit everyone if you take the time to really look!
There are many other neighborhoods. We lived for 8 years in a rental house on property in estate betsys jewel, which is just over the hill from cane bay. Loved the location and never had a bit of trouble. We lived at the end of an almost quarter-mile unpaved driveway - only one way in and out. We felt very safe.
I would like to know about the realtors. We are coming in November maybe sooner if my husband gets the job. We have talked to Seaglass Properties in St. Croix.
I would recommend that you start your own thread. This one 3 1/2 years old. Some of your questions make me wonder if you have even visited the VI before accepting a possible job.
Friend lived there - too salty. She is also a RE agent. Sold her place years ago. Hot in summer I’m told too. Like AC mandatory kinda hot. I loved living west near rainforest. Was a gated hood too and so quiet. Perfectly positioned for breezes from east and no salt as wind blows east west. I’d never live in HOA again and when I looked at JF the houses were WAYYYYY overpriced for the junk they were.
These were my requirement when purchasing my home on STX
Elevated eastern exposure to take advantage of trade winds
Paved road to avoid dust/dirt during dry season
Upwind from industrial plants and dump - I don't want "stuff" on my roof and in my cistern
Close enough to a town for short errands
Garage and/or ample exterior storage for tools and yard equipment
I would advise now taking a really close look at the windows and if they will need replaced anytime soon. Also, the storm coverings and ease of use. All can be extremely expensive to change and should be factored into your offer if they are insufficient.
We love it in Judith's Fancy, yes salt destroys everything, the HOA has some silly rules-no yard work on Sundays and Holidays. Which sicks because I work six days a week, but it's central to everything, nice neighborhood to walk in, great for kids. Large lots, houses are not on top of each other, sometimes in Feb it gets so chilly you need long sleeves. We didn't plan on buying there but stumbled on a house there, don't regret it a bit.
