  • $2,500,000
Upper Fern Hill - NEVIS

Description

This charming very private nature lovers villa is situated on an unusual 5 acre spread only a five minute walk above the Four Seasons golf course, with terrific views. This is one of the most popular locations on the island above Pinneys beach, which is considered the best swimming beach on the island.  Situated at an elevation of 700 feet with gentle breezes providing comfortable year round temperatures. Two of the best hiking trails can be walked from the property. It is only 12 minutes from town, 15 minutes from the airport and close to any other activities you wish to experience. The villa is approached by local dry stone walls on either side of a 600ft winding driveway that ends with a turning circle with the villa and cottage opposite each other.

The Villa is one of a kind on Nevis with the unique architecture providing an indoor/ outdoor ambience that makes it so special along with fabulous views of St Kitts and the ocean from every room. It is eclectically furnished with speciality items brought from the States. 

 As you enter the villa into the living room and dining area, the breath taking panorama of St Kitts sits majestically framed by only a few pillars and the swimming pool with paintings of monkeys on the overhead arch. Gazing over the pool is a six foot wide waterfall dropping into the stone walled garden below.

The planning of the garden has been arranged to see most of the larger flowering plants and trees as one gazes at views across the ocean. There are also planters hugging the pool. The surrounding terraces are the perfect oasis for breakfast, relaxing, yoga, and an evening sundowner while you listen to the soothing waterfall or fountain and take in an array of banana quits and humming birds.

SITTING ROOM/DINING ROOM

The sitting room and dining room open out onto the pool and the terrace and are furnished with a large dining set, comfortable sofas and a central chandelier.  The open walls allow constant cooling breezes making it a most inviting space.

It is styled in a shabby chic fashion, with stripped wooden floors, large shuttered windows, 

bohemian furnishings and lots of storage.

GARDENS

The owner has planted a dizzying array of flowers, shrubs and trees around the house and throughout the property and has created clever pathways through the estate so you can enjoy all the flora and fauna the Caribbean has to offer. There is part of the property left with the original rainforest plants and palm trees (including a cashew tree!) that have been maintained along with a jungle path which is one of the owners favourite spots. The horse and two pet donkeys are contained in the middle of the property and are let loose half the day to graze.

Exterior

The walls inside and out are finished with a coating that does not need to be painted and is maintenance free. The ceilings and most of the wooden is pickled so no repainting is required and the outside roof will last forever, it is resistant to fire and maintenance free. It was imported from Belgium and looks like the traditional curved roof tile from Mexico.
