Description

The northern reaches of Nevis offer some of the wilder, less developed spaces on the island. Here, views reach across open fields – wild with long grasses, splashes of flamboyants and scattered palms dotting the landscape – and down towards the deep blues where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic. The nearby beaches are quieter than those on the popular western shores, splashed bright pink with the insides of washed up conch shells and at times home to nesting turtles. Farniente, or ‘carefree’, is in an appropriate corner of Nevis for its name.

Caribbean traditions have been embraced in a home that features characteristic gingerbread stylings and a partial cladding of shingles. A bright blue pool sits in tropical gardens, the pinks and reds and oranges of the plants the perfect addition to a landscape dominated by green fields and blue seas and skies. Thought and care have been put into all the stylings, with a kitchen sink that looks out to sea and white, light and open cabinets.

And this is a theme that continues throughout the house: nature has been the inspiration for, and is indeed the primary source of, the splashes of colour. A frangipani tree rustles just outside the bathroom window – surely the perfect scented shower experience – and wide double doors mean the bedrooms look directly out to the garden and beyond. On the whole the walls and ceiling and white and crisp, but the colours that have been included – a gorgeous ochre or a gentle sea-foam green – perfectly anticipate the outside world.

Two courtyards have been created to establish a gentle, cooling airflow, one by the living room and another by the guest and master bedrooms. These are generously sized spaces flowing from one to the other. There’s also a third bedroom nestled on the ground floor along with a half bathroom and outside shower: it is ideal for development into an office, or perhaps as a studio for a budding artist. This is a home that is ready to be moved into.

The block and wood construction in 0.5 acres of gardens is the right choice for this part of the world, creating a solid, safe space in a wild hideout. Farniente has the perfect vantage point for both sunrises and sunsets, the only other rhythms of the day provided by the handful of prop planes that land at the nearby Nevis Airport. The new owners can expect privacy and peace as an integral aspect of this home: you may be at the farthest point on the island from the bustle of Charlestown but it is still barely more than a ten minute drive away.
