Great River House
Great River Estate is eight miles west of Montego Bay International Airport. Conveniently located only a few minutes away from Round Hill, the North Shore of Jamaica’s most elegant hotel and four miles from Tryall Club with its internationally acclaimed 18 hole championship golf course and other facilities, Great River Estate is a private community of some twenty villas built on a hill overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

Set in over four acres of gently sloping land and surrounded by well manicured lawns Great River House commands sweeping views of the sea. The property has many mature trees including some fine old pimento trees and citrus together with many flowering plants and shrubs. The entire property is fenced and entered through wrought iron entrance gates ensuring complete privacy at all times. There is a hard surface tennis court with a covered area for spectators on the western side of the property and a number of attractive sites for the construction of a guest cottage should extra bedrooms be required.

Substantially Furnished

Designed by one of Delaware’s leading architects for the original owner, a prominent member of the Dupont family, Great River House combines a handsome appearance with a practical layout.

The villa is entered through a carved mahogany front door in to a large living room with views through to the Caribbean Sea. This in turn leads to an extensive covered terrace so that there is very much the feeling of indoor/outdoor living which is so much a part of Jamaican life. A feature of this terrace is a very attractive two level waterfall at the eastern end. Beyond the waterfall is the swimming pool and its surrounding deck while at one end of the pool deck is a very pretty pavilion which can be used for additional outside dining or a quiet place in which to relax.

Four bedrooms each with bathroom en suite are accessed from the living room area with three bedrooms on the west side and the master bedroom on the east side. The fifth bedroom is on a lower level next to a games area and ideally located for children. There is a very well equipped kitchen and a staff area with two bedrooms and one bathroom. There is also a garage adjoining the staff area.
