A rare opportunity to own a piece of Antigua’s history. Today, only ninety-three sugar mills of about 174 that were built, remain standing. This recently built, architect-designed villa is privately located on 2.5 acres of the Warner family’s former estate property (ca. 1640s to 1760s). The property is fully gated and is embraced by beautiful tropical trees, flowers, and an expansive lawn.
This private 2.5-acre parcel is among the largest residential parcels in the Falmouth Harbour area. Old Savannah Mill can easily be expanded to include a tennis court, multiple private guest, or rental income cottages, or even subdivided into two or more parcels for private homes, if one wishes. Or simply enjoy the peace and solitude of this expansive, secluded setting and modern, solidly constructed, 2-bedroom home. The top of the sugar mill could be converted into a wonderful “sitting lounge” for enjoying ocean views and star-filled evenings with friends and family.
Upon entering the home, one quickly finds themselves welcomed by a spacious entertainment living area. This well-designed room features an attractive, wood-beamed ceiling and tiled flooring. The natural breezes flowing into the bright and airing living area are further enhanced by ceiling fans to ensure ultimate comfort. No air conditioning is necessary in this perfectly designed sitting area. The living lounge is serviced by a half bath with toilet and sink.
Two sets of sliding glass doors open onto a combination lounge and dining verandah. From this inviting outdoor vantage point one can enjoy views across the expansive lawn and gardens and the historical, stone sugar mill. The verandah is further enhanced by the property’s newly constructed, custom-designed swimming pool. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon poolside with friends and family.
The kitchen is conveniently located just off the living room. Glass sliding doors lead out to the dining/living lounge verandah. Large, bright, and functionally designed, the kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, a breakfast table and a center island cook station.
The main level master bedroom is complemented with sliding doors out to the gardens, air-conditioning, a large closet area, and full ensuite bathroom. The bath offers a double sink vanity and a spacious shower, all finished in attractive travertine tiling. The second bedroom is on the lower level and offers a private entrance, perfect for ensuring guests enjoy privacy from the main living area. It can be rented as an apartment for those seeking rental income. The laundry room is also on this lower level.
Old Savannah Mill is offered fully furnished with high quality, attractive and tasteful furnishings. The home is fully equipped and secured with hurricane shutters and security grade window screens. Old Savannah Mill presents a rare and unique opportunity to acquire a historic estate. Quietly located in an almost parkland style setting of 2.5 acres of rolling gardens, this villa offers an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of English Harbour and Falmouth, and yet it is only a 3 minutes’ drive from all the amenities of English Harbour, including shops, restaurants, beaches, and historic Nelson’s Dockyard. The capital of St. John’s and the international airport are about a 20-minute drive.
The property is fully serviced with Government electrics, 20,000-gallon freshwater cistern, internet, cable TV, 13k diesel backup generator housed in a detached garden shed, swimming pool pump room, and electric security gate.
