Tucked into the hills, just minutes from the fantastic Golden Rock Inn, this simple, but comfortable house has panoramic views of Montserrat and a wide expanse of sea. With room for a larger main house, or a second dwelling, the property has numerous wonderful building sites located at the edge of the rain forest. The property is heavily wooded with tropical plants and trees in the mountain at about 800’ elevation. One of the earliest home sites on the island—and one of the best.
