Apes Hill Plantation encompasses 10 acres of picturesque land, offering captivating vistas of the Caribbean Sea along the west coast. Situated on one of the island’s highest points, the Plantation is located just outside Apes Hill Club, adjacent to Hole #2 of the Golf Course.
With a rich history dating back to the mid-1600s, Apes Hill Plantation has witnessed its share of events, including the unfortunate loss of an entire story in the hurricane of 1681. Presently, the home boasts four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, benefiting from the refreshing Tradewinds that render air-conditioning a luxury rather than a necessity.
The main house is primarily situated on a single floor, while the kitchen and laundry facilities are located downstairs. Its robust rubble walls ensure coolness even during the hottest days.
Additionally, two other dwellings grace the property. The first is the historic Boiling House, a charming 8,000 square foot, two-bedroom residence. The second is a cozy studio apartment nestled within the grove of majestic Mahogany Trees in the paddock.
Moreover, the property features several other old buildings that present enticing opportunities for conversion and repurposing.
Of particular note, two old Mill Walls adorn the estate. The first served as a windmill until 1939, later transformed into a white lime kiln. The second, a remarkable water mill, stands as the sole remaining structure of its kind on the island.
The home is tastefully furnished with exquisite antiques, offering the option for a furnished sale, allowing the new owner to seamlessly embrace the timeless charm of the property.
