Belmont House



Built in 1895 by Captain Lastic
Belmont House was constructed in 1895 by an industrialist, who traded in coal, a prominent resident called Captain Lastic. The house has also been known as the Lastic House.

Set amongst 8.5 Acres
Built in a prime location amongst acres of verdant estate this property is quite simply unique upon the island.

Original Antique Floors, Shutters & Doors
It is probably the best preserved large Creole house in St. Lucia and would rate as one of the finest Creole houses in the Eastern Caribbean.

Built from Cured Green Heart
This astounding property was constructed of cured green heart, a dense tropical wood that is resistant to insects and humidity. Much of the original construction was assembled with dowels and legs, not nails. The roof is galvanised metal. The wooden house sits on a raised concrete arcaded plinth. The ground floor is surrounded by a wide 360 degree verandah.

Prominent Position in Capital
Due to the nature of Captain Lastics business interest Belmony House was positioned to enjoy first rate views over the harbour and ocean.

Only 4 Owners to Date
Belmont House in the last 115 years has had only four owners, among them the Lastics and the present owner who has spent twenty-seven years conserving the house and the eight and a half acres that form its park.

Perfect Position, Cooled by Tradewinds
The house was sited to take full advantage of the refreshing trade winds that blow from the northeast almost every day of the year affording a natural consistent ventilation. No central air conditioning is required.

Surrounded by Rare Indigenous Breeds
The properties grounds is lush and hardwood trees, medicinal plants and trees, decorative trees, fruit trees and rare palm trees abound. The majestic local white cedars for which this area of Castries is named flourish to the rear of the house as do mahogany, silk cotton, six varietis of mangoes, varieties of palm from sago to gwi-gwi to talls. There are giant bamboo groves, golden apple trees, tamarind trees, breadfruit trees, windflowers, orchids and wild orchids. The park is a refuge for rare birds.
