Features &


Built in the early 18th century, this stately home of coral stone exudes traditional charm. The 11-acre property set in the north of the island, was re-designed between the late 60s - early 70s by celebrated English theatrical designer Oliver Messel for Charles Graves (brother of poet Robert Graves). His signature style was in making indoor and outdoor spaces seamlessly flow together-creating a comfortable and elegant family home of exceptional beauty.

The extensive property is perched on a coral ridge with unforgettable views of the Caribbean coastline, with a park of mahogany trees amidst mature, lush gardens - designed by the landscape designer for the Royal Palace of Hampton Court. The impeccably kept grounds with a koi-filled lotus lake, provide a peaceful oasis to stroll or relax.

The seven luxury suites in four separate wings, are spaced far enough to give optimum privacy. The Pavilion at the bottom of the Tropical Ravine has a suite with an outdoor shower and a kitchenette. The huge reception room boasts a high-tech home cinema: 60" plasma, high definition television, Blu Ray DVD and a Martin Logan electrostatic speaker sound system. This area is surrounded by wrap-around purple heart wood terracing - with a mahogany tree growing through the west deck.

The natural lagoon-shaped pool designed by Messel, is fed by ionised water - similar to swimming in a natural spring. At night the pool evokes magic with its lights set below. The expansive sun deck adjacent to the pool, is built over the ravine within the trees -like a giant tree house. Picture yourself with the scenic view as your backdrop, tanning or having an aperitif before a sumptuous dinner prepared by chef on staff (formally of Lonestar Restaurant and Maddox fame).

Fustic House Private Estate, the ideal getaway for large families or groups, offers the finest in Caribbean island living.
