We love this villa because...
It's as close as you can get to the beach! Amazing views of Mullins Bay and the ocean. It's a beautifully designed new home with a state of the art kitchen!
Hemingway House is a 4 bedroom villa designed by top architect Larry Warren. It is designed in plantation style. This lovely home is quietly tucked away between the serenity of Gibbes Beach and the highly popular Mullins Beach.
Hemingway House offers a gorgeous and unique vantage point. Mullins Bay is to the north and the glistening turquoise Caribbean Sea is directly in front.
This two-storey retreat is finished in coral stone on both its exterior and interior. It has handcrafted sconces, recessed lighting, ceiling fans and it is air conditioned throughout.
There is an oceanfront gazebo with a marble dining table set within the lush tropical gardens. This 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 Bougainvilleas cascade. The garden's statement piece is a lovely outdoor candelabra. This was a gift from the architect. Larry Warren. It hangs beautifully from a shady tree. This completes this tranquil sea front setting.
The villa's ground floor includes a fabulous "indoor/outdoor" living room/dining room. This 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.
