Hemingway House is a newly built property tucked away between the serenity of Gibbes Beach and the highly popular Mullins Beach, the latest plantation style design of top architect Larry Warren. The holiday home offers a gorgeous and unique vantage point with Mullins Bay to the north, and the glistening, vast ocean directly in front.
The two-storey retreat is finished in coral stone on both its exterior and interior with handcrafted sconces, recessed lighting, ceiling fans and air condition throughout. There is an oceanfront gazebo with a marble dining table set within the lush tropical gardens that is the perfect spot to enjoy outdoor dining. The lagoon pool borders the gazebo and is partially enclosed by a beautiful rock backdrop from which Bougainvillea cascades. A lovely outdoor candelabra is a statement piece in the garden which completes the tranquil setting, a gift from the architect hanging beautifully from a shady tree.
The villa's ground floor includes a fabulous open plan living room/dining room which opens onto the wrap around ocean view terrace. Here there is an alfresco dining area, colourful Kilim furniture, bespoke light fixtures and finely crafted iron gates that fold back, opening the whole area to the sea and gardens. The home also boasts a fully state of the art kitchen with a professional Wolf range and oven; Miele microwave and double oven; ice maker, a Subzero double door fridge, dish washer, a walk-in pantry and David Mellor cutlery. Adjoining the kitchen is a fully equipped bar connecting to the living room featuring two separate wine coolers that can keep different wines at appropriate temperatures; a second ice maker as well as a butler's sink. There is a laundry area off the kitchen as well as staff quarters on the outside of the property.
One of the villas guest bedrooms is on the ground floor overlooking the pool with a fully marbled en suite bathroom, a powder room and terrace, while the first floor houses the remaining three bedrooms. The master bedroom suite spreads along the entire upper sea-facing side of the home, featuring a large en suite bathroom with freestanding bath, his-and-hers vanities and a separate shower; a walk-in dressing room; and a separate study. There is a private wrap-around balcony with panoramic views and comfortable lounge chairs offering the perfect spot to unwind and watch the sunset.
The second bedroom sits beside the master suite, has a walk-in dressing room and opens onto a balcony overlooking the bay, pool and garden below. The bedroom's large family en suite has a shower and bathtub as well as his-and-hers vanity, and marble floor. The third bedroom also opens onto the balcony with views of the pool and garden and has an en suite with his-and-hers vanity and a walk-in shower room. All four bedrooms feature king size beds, their own televisions and Sonos sound.
This home is ideal for a large family or friends looking for a private beachfront retreat with modern amenities. A cook, housekeeper and laundress are on hand to make your stay even more comfortable.
