Commanding a strategic position atop one of the highest points of Tryall, Following Seas is a gracious, visually arresting house that combines the attributes of a much-cherished family home with the world-class facilities of a boutique hotel and the aura of old Hollywood glamour. Surrounded by seven acres of meticulously landscaped gardens, this is a house that is true to its name for as you stroll from drawing room to veranda, from flower-filled gardens to pool or from bed to patio; the view follows the line of the glistening sea below.
Stylistically, Following Seas has brought together the blues of the sea, the sky and the greens of the lawns and surrounding trees, bringing them inside to create an interior that is both exhilarating yet also tranquil. Splashes of colour inspired by the flowers that bloom outside brighten cushions and curtains; a remarkable collection of Jamaican artwork provides contemplation as well as stimulation and the classical Jamaican architecture affords a seamless flow of air and space. Above all, Following Seas is a byword for comfort such as thoughtfully placed tables upon which to place your drink, sofas and chairs to sink into and beds that are eagerly anticipated when it is time to retire. Space is a keyword where everyone can come together or retreat to their own favourite newly-discovered corner. An expansive covered terrace with dining area overlooks the sparkling infinity pool as well as the ocean with a separate private Jacuzzi spa and terrace further along. With a deck that overlooks the magnificent bay and perfectly placed to observe the setting sun is a large media cottage complete with an 80 inch flat-screen television and bar area. A perfect square with the original fretwork tray ceiling, the drawing room is one of the loveliest at Tryall and a perfect place to escape with a book and built around natural rock and surrounded by gardens is the dining gazebo where up to thirty-five guests may dine in comfort.
The latest technology includes satellite radio, an intercom system, high-speed wireless internet in every room and a Netspeak phone line that provides free calls to America, Canada and most of Europe.
In the main house there are four bedrooms. They comprise a master suite with a hand-carved king bed and two private “his” and “her’ bathrooms, an outdoor shower and dressing area; a bedroom with a king bed, one with two full-size beds and a fourth with two twin beds which can be converted to a king. Each bedroom has a private double bathroom expertly fitted with marble and granite custom-built cabinetry and crystal cupboard and draw handles that mirror the colour of the bedroom walls.
Off the main house is a hideaway guest cottage which offers two bedrooms separated by a sitting room. The master bedroom – with what is arguably the finest bedroom view at Tryall - has a hand-carved four poster bed, covered veranda and private sun terrace as well as outdoor shower under a majestic 90 foot palm tree. The second bedroom has two full beds as well as splendid views and both bedrooms enjoy a private plunge pool and kitchen with breakfast area. All six bedrooms have flat screen televisions. A charismatic, engaging and knowledgeable staff of eight provides hospitality for which Jamaica is legendary for and guests have at their disposal four golf courts to explore and traverse the Club.
