About the Property

Traditional galleried villa restored and re-designed by Naomi Cleaver

Featured in the Times '50 Best Villas in the Caribbean' list, 15 November 2014

'The overall effect is a mash-up of Mad Men, Rudyard Kipling and James Bond. Features include a deep veranda, white cathedral ceilings, old metal fans, white muslin and a bathtub at the foot of the master bedroom's four-poster.' The Sunday Times.

'Cross Gone with the Wind with an early Bond film (think Dr No) and the resulting style will be something akin to that of Naomi Cleaver's gorgeous house on the Caribbean island of Nevis: ceiling fans, white muslin, lush colours and romantic verandas, plus leggy furniture, graphic fabrics and sleek mid-century minimalism.' Katherine Sorrell, Daily Telegraph magazine.

'Naomi Cleaver has kept it simple – white-painted wooden floors, cathedral ceilings and walls (except in the living room with grey/blue tones inspired by a cactus in the garden). And she brought over her Fifties’ furniture that was upholstered to match. The whole look’s a fantasy blend of Mad Men, Somerset Maugham and James Bond.' Cheryl Markosky, Primelocation.com


The Galleries has 5,500 feet of living space, with two air-conditioned double bedrooms – plus one fan-cooled double downstairs – three bathrooms, large living room, a galley kitchen upstairs and a vast chef's kitchen downstairs, studio and an air-conditioned media room with WiFi, Hi-Fi, books and 150 movies on DVD.

There is an acre of garden, with two outdoor eating areas. The garden features mahogany, banana, citrus, palm and mango trees and a variety of cactus, and bird life including herons, white egrets, warblers, banana quits, grass quits, finches and hummingbirds.

Plus a 70 foot swimming pool, with outdoor shower, and loungers.

Car: Recommended

Nevis is old-fashioned Caribbean. Just five miles wide, it’s a relaxed island rounded by beaches and rising through rainforest to a 3,200 ft peak.

“On the map Nevis is a pool of green champagne. Life here seems defined by the constant, although somewhat half-hearted, struggle to achieve maximum comfort for minimum effort.' Sunday Times, April 11, 2010.

Nevis has plenty of places to visit, from old plantation inns (like Montpelier, where Nelson was married in 1787, and The Hermitage), to funky beach bars (Double Deuce, Sunshine’s) and romantic restaurants set high in the rainforest (Golden Rock, Bananas).

There is tennis and an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones Jr. championship golf course. Hiking, cycling and horse riding are easy to arrange, as well as scuba diving and kayaking. We can also organise fishing charters and day sails.

We can also arrange car hire for your stay. But please note: there are no traffic lights on Nevis

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We have been visiting for over 20 years, and we've owned the villa there since 2005. We lived there for two years 2008-2010 while we managed a major refurbishment. Naomi wrote her book 'The Joy of Home' there (Conran Octopus 2010).

Why the Owner Chose Cliftons, Saint Kitts and Nevis:
The villa is elegant and funky, mainly stone and wood with natural breeze and a wide wraparound veranda gallery. There is secluded 70 foot pool and large airy kitchen. Nevis itself is small and peaceful (there are no traffic lights!) but with plenty to do - hiking, cycling, sailing, golf and tennis - plus beautiful beaches and romantic plantation house restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Designed and refurbished by Naomi Cleaver, designer, author and TV presenter ('Other People's Houses', 'Britain's Best Home', 'Honey, I Ruined the House', 'Grand Designs Trade Secrets', etc.) www.naomicleaver.com
