After numerous visits to Nevis and the Golden Rock area in particular, three lifelong friends from Britain decided to forego their traditional hotel visits
and build a home, to reflect their own interpretation of what island living should be. After much searching in 1999 they came across the perfect location. Over 3 acres of wild forest on a sugar plantation,
with sensational views to the Atlantic Ocean and the neighbouring islands of Antigua, Montserrat and Redonda, were shortly to become 'Sugar Hill'.
The approach to the house is an experience in
itself. Up an exciting, mile long road through subtropical mahogany groves where wild monkeys, donkeys and goats abound... Sugar Hill is totally private but not isolated, at an altitude of 1100 ft with the magnificent
as a backdrop. The property with its four bedrooms with ensuite baths features the main house on two levels, and two individual cottages ten paces from the house, an element that gives guests a little more privacy. Steps lead down to the L shaped pool through a tunnel of miniature palms. A banana grove - coupled with the occasional mango- and a jade vine that envelops the pool pergola, provide adequate shade.
Comfortably furnished in up to date English country house style with a mix of antique and decorative objects and furniture. Large fully equipped kitchen and eating deck with gas-fired
BBQ, laundry with washer and dryer, and a generator for those occasional island power outages. The floors are a mixture of tile and antique pine. All the bedrooms have sea views and all rooms ceiling fans.
