This wonderful estate-type property built in a traditional West Indian-style is the perfect location for outdoor country living. Surrounded by mature gardens, the two-bedroom house affords amazing sea views and a bounty of local vegetation. Wonderfully cultivated fruit trees and vegetable gardens enhance the property, built on the side of a gently sloping hill with established terraces and hand-built stone walls. Fine dining at Golden Rock, Hermitage and Montpelier plantation inns are just minutes away. The area, at the edge of the rain forest, is Nevis’ bread basket, and the cooler, greener side of the island. For the country farmer or discerning cook, this would be the perfect property.
