About The Property
Top architect Larry Warren’s latest plantation style designed Hemingway House is tucked away between the serenity of Gibbs Beach and the highly popular Mullins Beach.
Hemingway House 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 colourful Bougainvilleas cascade. The garden’s statement piece is a lovely outdoor candelabra that was a gift from the architect and it hangs beautifully from a shady tree completing this tranquil setting.
The villa’s ground floor includes a fabulous “indoor/outdoor” living room/dining room which opens onto the wrap around ocean view terrace. There is a garden room bedroom overlooking the pool with a fully marbled en suite, a powder room and terrace. The ocean facing veranda offers 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. There is also a bedroom on this level, furnished with a queen size bed and ensuite bathroom.
Hemingway House boasts a fully state of the art kitchen with a professional Wolf range and oven; Miele microwave and double oven; ice maker, a Sub-Zero 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.

Hemingway House is a beachfront home.

Every effort has been made to depict the beach in front of this property, but temporary changes may occur.
