HILLTOP HOUSE FOR SALETuesday 21st February 2012
Beautiful, warm and intimate, describes this attractive 5000 square foot Caribbean home. Set atop a hill overlooking Falmouth Harbour on 0.67 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, the home features open-air architecture and luxurious island living. Enjoy refreshing cocktails and glorious sunsets as well as views of the numerous yachts at anchor. The home is a short five minutes away from all of the attractions of famed English Harbour where you can enjoy historic Nelson's dockyard, restaurants, shops, galleries, lounges, and the Antigua Yacht Club.
This unique and appealing Caribbean style villa is ideally suited for entertaining with its numerous spacious, inviting dining and seating areas. The home has high, wood-paneled ceilings that assure cool tropical living. Light, airy, and open, Hilltop Villa is crafted from high quality materials including travertine tiling, hardwood flooring, functional and attractive, fully screened wood louvered doors and windows, and hardwood decks and railings. Mature landscaped gardens complement the home and add to the charm to create a quiet, peaceful and private villa, conveniently located five minutes from all of the attractions of historic Nelson's dockyard.
From the circular driveway, a lovely garden pathway leads to 5 ft wide hardwood stairs which flow up to the main level of the home onto a handsome and impressive 15 foot wide covered verandah running the full length of the home. The verandah is accented with a large dining table for entertaining, outdoor wired speakers, ceiling fans, spacious seating areas, wide ten inch hardwood planked flooring, gorgeous plantation shutters, and four adjustable custom awnings. The expansive views to the west are delightful.
The doors and windows that open onto the verandah from the interior of the home have been fitted with custom, Armourmesh screens. These protective screens are made from rigid 316 grade stainless steel. They offer security 365 days per year, without darkening the home, or restricting airflow. They cannot be cut without specialized equipment, and can withstand any flying debris a storm is likely to throw at them. Armour Mesh is the most discreet type of hurricane / security device on the market today.
The main level verandah flows into the interior living area via a 14 x 20 foot great room finished with varnished, hardwood floors, ceiling fans, flat screen TV, entertainment center, comfortable seating, and tongue and grooved paneled ceilings. Off of the living room is a modern gourmet kitchen of stainless appliances including a double drawer dishwasher, five burner gas range top, convection microwave, large oven, double door refrigerator/freezer, wine cooler, and a center island food preparation counter covered in stainless steel as well. The counter tops and full backsplashes are made of attractive corian.
Off of the living areas to the east are two of the four bedrooms of the villa. The master bedroom and private bath offer a super king sized bed, double sinks, oversized tiled shower, and plenty of storage space. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed and is 15 ft X 15 ft.

A second custom made stoned tiled patio offers additional seating area and the terrace opens to the west onto the private 24 X 16 foot fresh water swimming pool with a tiled outdoor sun patio. The pool, set amongst mature palms and flowering plants, that surround this area and flow seamlessly to the large gardens and lawn area, invites you to enjoy a refreshing dip
