Set on five acres of gently sloping land with sea view and surrounded by manicured lawns, today's Great River House is the product of a massive renovation in 2008, recreating it as one of the newest homes in this group. In a private gated neighborhood of other upscale villas, the entire property is fenced and e...ntered through wrought iron gates, ensuring complete privacy. Grounds include a hard surface tennis court and a spacious grassy lawn with badminton and croquet. Royal Palms, citrus and pimento trees are gently lit each evening.
Built in 1956 by a member of the Dupont family, a renovation by modernist architect Tom Reed combines elegance, an expansive pool terrace, state-of-the-art technology including wireless Internet throughout, and cable televisions.
Locally crafted mahogany furniture reflects an old Jamaica ambiance, complemented by contemporary designer fabrics, a chefs kitchen, and Kohler en suite bathrooms with water tiles. Interiors are distinguished by artwork by famous illustrator Arthur Taylor, George Rodrique and original botanical and Jamaican watercolors and oils.
Candlelight dinners are served in an interior air-conditioned dining room where guests may enjoy a view over the pool and its infinity edge to the sea beyond. Meals may also be served alfresco on the 2,400 square foot pool terrace. The large serpentine pool features an infinity waterfall edge, fountain, expansive stone terrace and divided shallow children's pool. The chef treats guests to fresh fish and grilled lobster, and everyone's favorite, jerk pork and chicken prepared on our own jerk drum.
Various nooks and crannies are thoughtfully provided for individual escapes. A flower filled side courtyard with out-door shower offers a special hideaway for rejuvenating spa treatments on request.
A supplemental generator ensures that Great River House is never without electricity and air conditioning.
All five bedrooms have mahogany floors, fine linens, pillow menus, quiet remote control air conditioning, ceiling fans, iPod docks and are wired for internet. Bathrooms feature Kohler fixtures, wall sprays and rain tile showers.
