For someone looking for an historic project, look no further. This fabulous site, just outside Charlestown, sits on a hill overlooking the sea with the remains of one of last standing great Houses on Nevis. The property includes two houses in good repair-renovations of a stable and carriage houses on the property; also a bake house, and the great house remnants. Over the years, the estate had many owners, first James Tobin, who then mortgaged the estate to his friend and business partner John Pinney, who had many holdings on Nevis. Needless to say, the estate has a very interesting history down over the years--once part of a 358 estate that includes cane lands and pasture.
