This magnificently appointed luxury residence commands spectacular panoramic views of Antigua. Overlooking the west coast, St. John's harbour and the lush, rolling hills beyond, it is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after locations on the island. Rooms are well proportioned and airy, but nevertheless well protected from the elements.
The two-storey construction takes full advantage of the dramatic hillside site and the architectural style of the building is in keeping with the uniquely Caribbean setting: there is a distinctive use of natural materials (wood and stone in particular) as well as traditional West Indian detailing, such as fretwork, louvered windows and hand crafted interior stairwell wrought-iron railings. Symmetry and grandeur have been introduced to the exterior of the property by means of an elegant double staircase that leads from the main verandah to the ground floor. Equally striking is the use of local, hand-cut stone for the interior and exterior walls. Interior features have been selected with care and sensitivity and include an impressive range of European and North American antiques. A large verandah flanks the property on three sides, maximizing the potential for outdoor living and for enjoyment of the property's mature, tropical gardens and outstanding views.
