Fern Hill house description

Privacy and unobstructed, panoramic views define Island Time, an exclusive villa on the unspoiled island of Nevis. Designed in traditional West Indian style, Island Time has soft Saltillo tiles and plantation-style furnishings and details throughout. At 850 ft elevation, the villa abuts a conserved palm forest to the north, with beautiful views of Mt. Nevis to the east.

Island Time has a terrace level pool, beautifully landscaped gardens, and 4 spacious air-conditioned bedrooms, 3 with ensuite bathrooms. From the Sunset Terrace, you have a spectacular view of four islands. From the screened Dining Pavilion you can watch the sun rise over the mountain and the sun set over the tropical blue Caribbean Sea, while shy monkeys cavort in nearby trees. From the Garden Terrace, you're surrounded by tropical flowers and hummingbirds.

A short drive from the villa meanders through the world-class Four Seasons Resort, golf course and local villages, bringing you to unspoiled beaches, wonderful restaurants, luxurious spas, shopping districts, historic sites, museums and beautiful, unspoiled beaches.

                  Who says the tropics are hot? The temperatures at Island Time are 10 degrees cooler than on the beach, due to our elevation. Perfect for night time swims in the pool, plus drinks, dinner and stargazing on the sunset terrace. From here you can watch Monkeys cavort in the nearby trees. Our special 'Island Time' schedule of nearby activites and the hottest spots for live entertainment and dancing will keep you busy every day or night if you can tear yourselves away from Island Time's luxurious amenities and the great views.

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: We've been coming to Nevis for more than 30 years. Carol used to manage one of the Island's hotels and brought Peter here when they married. When we decided to build on this very special Island, we were lucky to find the very spot Carol had always dreamed about.We think we've got the most beautiful site and home on the island. We are avid sailors and sail on our 42' sailboat to Nevis every year from New England where we enjoy our summers sailing mostly in Maine. We have 3 sons, 8 grandchildren, and lots of neices and nephews.

                  Why Fern Hill:
                  When Carol lived in Nevis over 30 years ago, she used to hike in Tower Hill Estate, a huge privately owned and now, protected plantation next door to our property. The views are considered to be the best on the island. Carol always wanted to live here, and when this site came available, we bought it and built our home. And yes, the ocean views are still unbelievable, looking northwest across the Nevis Narrows (body of water between Nevis and St. Kitts), to nearby St. Kitts. From the sunset terrace you can see the 'greenflash', over cocktails, or from the pool! And now we can see the stone ruins of the adjacent plantation. Nevis is a special jewel of an island; unspoiled and very careful of its historic and natural treasures, of which there are many. We especially love the people of Nevis; open, warm, friendly.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We enjoy every time of the day at Island Time. The view from the sunset terrace changes all day long; we never tire of it. The morning sun rises above Mt. Nevis behind us, shining on St. Kitts across the Narrows, and bringing morning sun to the dining pavilion. When the sun is high overhead, the sea becomes turquoise and it seems like we can touch the islands in our view. At sunset, we watch the sun go down with a drink on the terrace. The pool is spectacular all day (and for late night swims!). We love to hike in the nearby rainforest and watch the monkeys play in the trees. Sleeping is wonderful here because it is so quiet. And no mosquitoes -- except in the rainy season in September and October, and then only a few. Our elevation guarantees cooler temps than at the beach. If needed, every bedroom has air conditioners, and there are ceiling fans in every room. And the kitchen! It has everything. Lots of good meals have been created in this kitchen. Also, we love the pool floats! We try to spend an hour or more together floating in the pool, planning the day or evening, or just listening to the quiet and birds.
