With 10,000 Sqft of living accommodation, this Jones Estate luxury house is possibly the largest private house on Nevis.
The setting is wonderful as this home occupies just under 4 acres of well-maintained gardens. The sea views offer a horizon filled with the sister Island of St Kitts.
The property rents extremely well as the layout is flexible and the rooms are generously proportioned. There are essentially three properties. The main four bedroom house, a 3 bedroom guest house and a one bedroom apartment.
The house is practical too. It has a wrap-around patio on the ground floor, together with a similar terrace on the first floor. This gives outside access from every room, and allows the cooling breezes to flow through.
The use of exotic hardwoods throughout give the whole home a Great House ambience. That effect continues when you see how large the bedrooms are.
Access to this secluded house is via a palm-fringed driveway, leading to a turning circle with a beautiful Flamboyant tree at its center. You also have drive access to the garage block and guest house.
INTERIOR (Main house 8,000 Sqft 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms) : The Great Room is dual aspect and has wonderful exotic hardwood floor-to-ceiling book cases along one wall. There are double doors that open onto a rear patio with steps down to the large solar heated swimming pool.
The hand-built kitchen has custom granite counter tops with a granite top island unit. The kitchen is well equipped with appliances. The kitchen gives access to the dining area on the patio, seating at least 12.
The main house has four very large bedrooms. There are two master bedrooms, each equipped with a 4-piece en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobes. They also have King size four-poster beds and a private seating area. The large guest rooms are equipped with 3-piece en-suite bathrooms, walk-in wardrobes and queen size four poster beds.
The house has an additional staff bathroom and a guest powder room.
INTERIOR (Guest house 2,000 Sqft 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms + a 1 Bedroom apartment) : Mango Corners Cottage is set well away from the main house. It has recently been re-fitted and is ideal as guest accommodation, for rental income, or for a caretaker property.
The cottage is open plan with a fitted kitchen, sitting room, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large veranda with garden views.
In addition to the cottage, there is a one bedroom basement apartment, with a bathroom and laundry area.

The large, 20’ x 40’ solar-heated swimming pool is close to the main house.
There’s a variety of outbuildings including a 3-car garage with a workshop and sel-contained flatlet suitable for staff accommodation ( About 2,000 Sqft), a large shade house for a plant nursery, a laundry room with staff bathroom, a generator house with a 16-KVA auto transfer diesel generator and 2 tool sheds.
