Property Description

High above the crashing Atlantic waves, on the fringes of the verdant wilderness growing over the steep slopes of Nevis Peak, Goldeneye is perched in its own dramatic terraced garden. a testament to decades of careful nurturing and coaxing of native trees. Nature has been tamed – but only just.

A broad verandah accessible from all the main living areas and the three bedrooms wraps around the bright yellow villa: living here is all about the garden, one which rivals that of its famous namesake in Jamaica. A dramatic stone staircase leads down to a cocktail terrace, buried deep in the sanctity of the highest trees is a meditation corner, and following the winding paths leads to a hidden gazebo. A swimming pool set to the side of the house is very much a part of the garden but not the purpose of it.

The entrance to Goldeneye is reminiscent of an English country estate, a vast vestibule with high ceilings and delicate wood carvings. It sets the tone for the rest of the house: a quiet hideaway cooled by the constant gentle breeze of the trade winds. This is a place for those seeking a secluded retreat, with a suite of rooms downstairs waiting to become an artist's studio or craftsman's den.

Additionally, Goldeneye occupies a coveted spot just a few hundred yards from the boutique Golden Rock hotel and restaurant owned by Brice Marden. Indeed, this is the perfect home for the discerning buyer who seeks absolute privacy within easy reach of quietly unassuming luxury.

Property Details

The inside of Goldeneye is defined by large, airy rooms converging to the veranda by individual doors. The entrance hall, a rarity in Nevis, is the focal point to access all areas of the house.

Living Room: Immediately past the hallway is the large living room used as a sitting area furnished simply with comfortable sofas. Dining takes place on the veranda to enjoy the view towards Redonda and Montserrat.

Kitchen: Cooled down by a ceiling fan the spacious kitchen is a separate room with plenty of locally built cabinetry providing ample storage. Convenient access to the dining area through a set of doors opening to the veranda.

Master Suite: Ideal for privacy, an entire side of the house is dedicated to the master suite. It encompasses an oversized bedroom furnished with an island made king size four poster bed, a generous walk in closet and remodeled 3 piece bathroom. The laundry room completes that aisle of the house.

Guest Bedrooms: At the opposite side are two guest bedrooms (one currently set up as an office). Both have ceiling fans, built in closets and multiple windows. A shared bathroom in the corridor is accessible by both guest bedrooms. Another half bath finished the layout of the main living space.

Downstairs: Opportunity to turn the available space into an additional bedroom with its own bathroom or convert it in an office, fitness place, etc.

A botanist dream! Walking through the garden reveals the extraordinary diversity of tropical plants and fruit trees. Quaint foot paths wander throughout with diverse resting places allowing for the contemplation of the incredible fauna and flora. 

The layout is conducive to multiple activities starting with sunrise yoga on the wooden platform to lunch under the gazebo, tea in the shade of one of the large mature trees ending the day with cocktails on the veranda where the constant breeze playfully gets the wind chimes to sing their tune!

No day would be perfect without a dip in the refreshing pool. Sited in close proximity to the house, the swimming pool is very private, surrounded by landscaping.
