This unique piece of history sits on a south-facing ridge at 1,000 feet with spectacular views east over the Atlantic (Antigua, Montserrat and Redonda) and to the west over the Caribbean Sea. First developed in the 1680s, the property has undergone many restorations as a sugar estate until 1911. The property includes a two-bedroom house with a windmill, plus a two-apartment cottage, each with its own kitchen, perfect for the extended family traveling together. Amazing panoramic views from the large lap pool area overlooking the sea and valleys below and the surrounding historic ruins and gardens.
