Very private Allamanda Estate is situated on 6 acres of a breezy hilltop amongst lush, flowering gardens within prestigious "Little Mountain Estate". As the official residence of the Governor of the British Virgin Islands from 1998 to 2004, this property has been recently refurbished in a stunning blend of Indonesian, Chinese and Indian pieces and antiques.
The covered entry foyer is flanked by two stately urns, and leads inside to the tiled gallery strewn with Persian rugs and hung with original art. The gallery leads to the traditional drawing room, elegantly furnished with sink-into sofas and chairs and a reading library. Adjoining through large double doors is the gracious formal dining room which connects to the large kitchen. Glass sliders open from the dining and living areas to a covered portico where wide arches and tropical foliage frame a sweeping native stone terrace overlooking Beef Island's south side and across the sea to the south horizon - perfect for sunset cocktails.
Off the great room is a very spacious air conditioned king master bedroom with a romantic four-poster bed and an en-suite bath; this suite opens out to an L-shaped covered verandah and to a large Balinese daybed. Adjoining is a smaller bedroom/bath with twin beds (or one king, if you wish), dressed in sunny yellow and crowned by an Indonesian carved wooden screen. The gallery which connects these rooms offers a home office desk complete with a desktop computer with DSL line and a fax machine.
On the other side, the gallery opens to the sunny pool and tile terrace bordered with graceful palms and island flora, and set with cushioned chaise lounges. On one end of the pool terrace is a shady covered deep verandah, handsomely furnished with cushioned wicker seating, family TV, tables for casual dining and games, and a wet bar containing a mini-fridge, icemaker and a gas grill. Allamanda Estate's guest pavilion is adjacent to the pool verandah, ensuring guests' privacy and comfort, and offers two spacious, air conditioned king bedroom/bath suites with a convenient and cozy foyer between them equipped with a cushioned bench, table, sink, mini-fridge, microwave and coffeemaker.
Original artwork and potted plants throughout enhance this villa's gracious charm, and beautiful wood soffits with soft indirect lighting frame every room's ceiling, giving the villa a warm and welcoming feel. The bedroom suites are all fully screened. Allamanda Estate is also an ideal location for weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries and family get-togethers. Special arrangements may be made in advance for these special occasions, and you may also arrange for your own private chef, nanny, massages and day-spa services.
