Cleary House – SOLD

  • POA
Golden Rock Estate Gingerland, Nevis


Lot size:  4 Acres

Cleary House offers the perfect opportunity for a house hunter who would love to live in the upscale enclave of Golden Rock Inn Estate.

From a vantage point of  800 ft above sea level,  the dramatic views over the Atlantic ocean to Montserrat, Redonda and Antigua on the horizon are hard to beat – it is a breathtaking panorama, best enjoyed from the generous  verandah that runs the width of the house.

Cleary House is for sale for the first  time in its history, it was built by one of the earliest expatriates to arrive on Nevis and make it their home.   The early birds got the pick of the  best lots, and this 4 acre lot is a rare find today.

This simple and eclectic  home was built in the 60s and could easily be upgraded –  there are unlimited options for building further structures on the land, without obscuring any views from the existing residence which is sited at the back of the lot.


The centre piece of the house, with large sliding glass doors opening onto the wide verandah, complete with fitted bar at one end.


A small but serviceable kitchen is accessed off the sitting room, fitted with wooden cupboards in a retro style and painted in a bright Caribbean Sea blue.


Pretty room with French doors onto the verandah and en suite bathroom – a local hand made 4 poster bed creates the centrepiece for this room, large built in wardrobes with louvred doors complete the room.


Both guest bedrooms are at the back of the house and have fitted cupboards and ensuite bathrooms.


The owner was a artist and had her studio at the back of the house – this could be converted to a further bedroom, gym or office if desired.


Garage close to the entrance gate.


The house is set at the top of this 4 acre lot providing ample opportunity for sub-division or to build another structure or two (subject to usual planning permission).  The current owner has already marked out an independent access road to the lower half to demonstrate a potential layout.

The land is filled with a bounty of tropical and indigenous plants and trees and is a wildlife haven.  At this elevation the vegetation is lush and colourful, providing the perfect escape and it is fantastic for hikers, with several great trails  available straight out the door to!

The  nearest hostelry is the fabulous Golden Rock Inn, which was bought a few years ago by New York Artists Helen and Brice Marden.  They have performed an almost magical transformation of this old family plantation and it is now one of the highlights of any visit to Nevis. 

The local residents of Golden Rock Estate have benefitted enormously from their association and proximity to this wonderful Inn.

Includes vintage Mini Moke in the sale.
