Glamorous 9,000 ft² private estate on six landscaped acres overlooking the sea
Pimento Hill is a spacious private home with a legendary history. The villa overlooks the Caribbean Sea and is located just five minutes from chic Round Hill where guests enjoy complimentary membership.

It was originally built in the late 1950's for French Count and Countess Jacques and Vera di Sibour in the period when Jamaica was a glamorous party destination for the early jet set. It attracted the likes of Noel Coward, Ian Fleming and the Kennedys, among many other notables. The Master Suite was the residence selected for Queen Elizabeth II when she visited Jamaica to open the Queen's Highway.

In early 2008, Pimento Hill was extensively renovated and refurbished to a high standard while retaining many period features. Today, owned by a family in London, Pimento Hill's essence is the tasteful marriage of Colonial grandeur of a bygone era complemented by modern amenities and comforts one would expect in a luxury villa. Priceless chandeliers and antiques define character. Marvelous meals emerge from the modern kitchen. Comfortable bedrooms feature top-of-the-line mattresses and en-suite bathrooms. Delicate orchids adorn the rooms. The grounds include water gardens, hidden walkways, an arched bridge and sprawling grassy lawns.

Pimento Hill's six acres are a virtual orchard of mango, orange, grapefruit, breadfruit, lime, tangerine, avocado and even a cotton tree! Large lawns encourage children to run around and even learn a bit of cricket from senior gardener Ralston.

Architecturally, the villa is constructed in four defined areas connected by footpaths:
Entrance Hall and Main Villa:
One enters the Main Villa through a classic Italianate pink and cream marble entrance hall. This building houses the 1,000 ft² Great Room on original mahogany floors and the extraordinarily large modern kitchen with six-burner gas stove and wide granite countertops. The inside formal dining area features a gleaming mahogany table and 10 Queen Anne chairs under a stunning crystal chandelier. The Great Room opens onto the long verandah with bar, comfy couches for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, and al fresco dining area for up to 20 guests.

Completing the Main Villa is the 800 ft² Blue Bedroom with antique French crystal chandelier. The en-suite bathroom includes a bathtub and separate shower. The Blue Room offers optional kingsize or twin beds plus a daybed for a child. French doors open to a small garden porch where eye-opener coffee or tea is placed early each morning.

Master Villa 2,000 square feet:
Just across a porte-cochere is the second building which houses the impressive Master Suite with renovated his & and hers bathrooms, jacuzzi bathtub in ladies room, kingsize four-poster bed and two adjoining 175 ft² dressing rooms. One dressing room is fitted out with two twin beds for children; the second has a 13' antique dressing table and daybed for another child. Both the children's room and the dressing room open to their own individual en-suite bathroom with mosaic-tiled circular sunken bathtubs with showers.

The 1,500 ft² Master Bedroom opens through 12 louvered doors to garden and sea views, and to a private porch where eye-opener coffee or tea is quietly presented early each morning. French doors on the south wall of the Master Villa open to a 35' covered brick walkway to the Study.

Study 540 square feet:
Just across the covered walkway from the Master Bedroom is the cozy Study. Its 100 ft² bedroom has optional king or twin beds, small shower room, and separate small toilet room. The adjoining study has a 32" flat screen TV, desk for laptop users (wireless Internet access), and twin-size daybed for an additional guest.

Pool Cottages:
A 80' path through the shaded water garden leads to two more private bedrooms located on the pool deck. One bedroom has a kingsize bed; the other has optional king or twin beds. Each has an en-suite bathroom with bidet and tiled bathtub with shower.

While the large, deep swimming pool gets all-day sun, the adjacent terrace has a covered sitting area and unique copper bar for poolside drinks. On request, lunch will be served by the pool in sun or shade.
