Nestling high and central on the rim of the 20 acre Galleon Beach Club, Lime Hill commands a spectacular view over Freeman's Bay, historic Nelson's Dockyard at English Harbour and Falmouth. Completed in 2002, this quality two storey Colonial style Villa is furnished in traditional Caribbean style, with each of the four air-conditioned bedrooms enjoying the breathtaking view.
On the upper floor, the fully equipped kitchen, with fridge/freezer/icemaker and water purifier leads into the spacious lounge/dining room, which features large glass wide opening patio doors on opposite sides to keep the whole room cool, assisted by paddle fans, enabling tropical outdoor/indoor living. The rear patio doors open onto the walled stonework terrace giving privacy and seclusion. The master bedroom is on the same floor, with super king bed, large ensuite bathroom with full size bath/shower, double basins and outside tropical shower. A second bedroom with king size double bed and ensuite bathroom with shower is also on this floor. Both bedrooms have their own balconies overlooking gorgeous Freeman's Bay.
The double Caribbean style over-arch staircase leads down to the pool area, off which are the two other bedrooms, one of which has a dividable super-king bed and ensuite bathroom with shower. Bedroom four, which doubles as a cable TV/video room has twin beds that can be joined to make a double, and has adjacent bathroom and shower. Both downstairs bedrooms have French doors giving direct access to the pool area, which has dining furniture for up to 10 people, and a gas barbecue.
The mature garden includes tropical plants such as Bougainvillea, Jacaranda, Paw- Paw, Hibiscus, Alamanda, Christmas Candle, and Oleander.
