Dream House | St Ann Georgian country home has quite the history

On the wings of time, let’s together travel back to an era of gracious living in Jamaica, reserved for the rich, the titled and the infamous.

As we inquisitively proceed to find this past, our journey will ultimately permit us to come face to face with our architectural heritage. Every house tells a story, with its past and present occupants providing life to the space and bestowing it with a character of its very own.

A cordial reception awaits our arrival at this Jamaican, Georgian country home, sequestered high on a mountain plateau, 800 feet above St Ann’s Bay, in St Ann. Its undulating 15 acres (reduced from 165 acres) is rewarded with dramatic all-encompassing 180 views of sea and highlands.

Originally a pimento-producing plantation, the symmetrical house was built in the 1780s and first revealed in official records of enslaved people and slave owners of 1789. The cut-stone, block and mahogany wood 9,000 square foot structure is complemented by shuttered sash windows, wood floors, and cedar shingle roof. Ancillary buildings include a nicely tucked away self-contained two-floor cottage, servants quarters and other outhouses.

The stately, two-storey main house incorporates an entry portico, entrance hall, formal sitting and dining rooms, family/TV room, library, and a large kitchen. These areas are accompanied by five bedrooms, five bathrooms, with rooms on both levels having direct access to extensive viewing terraces and balconies
