Palm Terrace is a delightful property nestled on the hillside in St George’s Parish with far reaching views over the Atlantic to Montserrat on the horizon.
Lovingly conceptualised and built by the current owner, an interior designer by trade, this quirky property has a casual, outdoorsy easy feel that is immediately warm and welcoming. With the main living space on the upper level it ensures you can make the most of the dramatic views and have a birds eye view of the flora and fauna in the lush landscape surrounding the property.
The lower level, consists of a large room, with traditional latticed windows and shutters. It was used as the owners design studio but is also doubles up as the second bedroom.
There is a ensuite powder room with laundry facilities.
Large double doors open onto the garden and a lower verandah, where you can relax on the Adirondack chairs and while away the afternoon.
The upper level is the ultimate in outdoor living, the open plan sitting and dining room has fantastic views which creates the perfect backdrop any time of day. It is decorated in a unique palette and finished off with an eclectic range of furnishings, vibrant fabrics and chandeliers. Most furniture will be kept by the vendor but seeing the potential ‘in situ’ is a real treat.
The bijou well equipped kitchen lends a nautical feel, and like a boat is well equipped in a minimal and no nonsense fashion – one doesn’t spend hours baking when you have a sunny island life to enjoy!
MASTER BEDROOM and MASTER BATH
The master bedroom is on the Upper Level and is traditional Caribbean style, with screened wooden latticed windows and Bahamian Shutters on the exterior.
The ensuite bathroom is equally cute and provides a WC, Shower and basin.
The cottage is reached via a decked pathway that winds through the garden and has in the middle a outdoor patio area.
The traditional cottage is completely self contained with a bedroom and bathroom (with WC and basin). A marvelous outdoor shower presents a unique option for bathing.
The extensive garden has been lovingly planted over several years and is now an established tropical wonderland. It is well stocked with gorgeous succulents, ferns, lilies and rock plants, alongside traditional Caribbean fruit trees and a host of exotic palms.
For those tired limbs at the end of a day “liming”, take some time out to enjoy a rum punch sundowner in the outdoor Hot Tub.
There is a integral garage under the house, this could also be converted to further living space or kept for storage.
The nearest hostelries are the wonderful Golden Rock Hotel, The Hermitage (the oldest wooden structure in the Caribbean) and The Montpelier – all three plantation Inns are in private ownership and are friendly and unique.
There is wonderful hiking in the area and lots to explore, everywhere is close on Nevis so beaches can be reached in 10 minutes, as can the quirky capital Charlestown.
