This rare historical Great House, the oldest on St Kitts, holds centre stage on 2.9 acres of lawned gardens, dotted with mango trees and Norfolk pines. Standing majestically for over 300 years it has been a loving family home for 3 lucky families and it has only changed hands twice in its lifetime.
In its colourful history it has been the Governors House and witnessed a fascinating history book worth of changes, as this wonderful island has developed from a sugar plantation dependency to the independent jewel of the Eastern Caribbean it is today.
This grand residence is currently being used as a wellness centre and is hosting some theatrical productions in the spacious great room – but with some clever renovation and a sympathetic eye it could lend itself easily to returning to a majestic residence, a boutique hotel or wellness retreat – the options are endless.
The winding driveway from the stone flanked gates, lends a sense of old world charm and grandness to your arrival and guests would definitely feel they have arrived somewhere special.
A further 3 cottages are in the grounds and are ripe for renovation for further accommodation or support services for the main house.
