Property Description

The property was re-designed between the late 1960’s and early 70’s by the famous English theatrical designer Oliver Messel for Charles Graves (brother of the poet Robert Graves). Oliver’s distinctive style was making indoor and outdoor spaces seamlessly flow together, creating a comfortable and elegant family home of exceptional beauty.

The extensive property with its mahogany park, exotic gardens and stunning views of the Caribbean coastline, is set on a coral ridge, close to the sea, but still benefiting from the cooling and welcoming breezes of the Easterly Trade-winds. The Estate has unparalleled and mature gardens, designed by Todd Langstaffe-Gowan, landscape designer for the Royal Palace of Hampton Court. The grounds are beautifully tended and one can find many unusual and exotic species of Flora and Fauna, making the park and gardens a pleasurable place to stroll or lounge in the shade of the majestic trees or sit to contemplate by the koi-filled lotus lake. With its play area and hidden places, the property is magical for children.

Nestled amongst the gardens is the world famous pool, formed like a natural lagoon, designed by Messel. It is fed by ionised water, making it feel like swimming in a natural spring. At night the pool is lit from below, making it even more romantic and magical. Adjacent to the pool is a large sun-deck, built amongst trees over the ravine like a giant tree house – an ideal place for sun-bathing or drinks before dinner, with the view of the Caribbean always present.

Fustic House has a high performance staff including chef Andy Taylor formally of The Lonestar Restaurant and Maddox fame. It is close to a quiet, sandy beach at Little Good Harbour (3-5 minute walk through Half Moon Fort fishing village). There are 7 luxury suites, housed in four separate wings, close to each other but spaced far enough to give optimum privacy. The Pavilion at bottom of the Tropical Ravine has a suite with outdoor shower and a kitchenette. The reception room 30ftx 20ft (10x7m) has a state of the art home cinema – 60″ plasma, high definition TV, Blu Ray DVD and a Martin Logan electrostatic speaker sound system. It is surrounded by wrap around Purpleheart terracing, with a mahogany tree growing through the west deck. Almost 300 years in the making, Fustic House Private Estate represents the very best in Caribbean gracious living.
