Hawk’s Cry is a 3 level apartment with a private Plunge pool and a shared large pool in the Allamanda development. The views over the ocean to Martinique and the nearby hillsides are truly spectacular.
Hawks Cry stands on six ½ acres of land, purchased by the present owners and their partners at the time. The temperature varies between 28° and 35° throughout the year. As Hawks Cry is in the north of the island, the rainfall is less than the south. The mountains in the centre of the island, attract the clouds, providing moisture to the rain forest. Often you can see rain in the distance, leaving the north sunny. The gardens are landscaped with palms, tropical flowers and colourful shrubs which attract Hummingbirds to feed from the blossoms. The entrance into the property leads into a light and airy open plan kitchen and dining area.
The kitchen is of Italian design with black granite worktops and a breakfast bar. The dining room sits 8 comfortably. The present owners have used natural materials to tastefully decorate all areas including Humming Birds and local fish and flowers on the mosquito nets and beaded tie-backs to the voile curtains. Driftwood, sea fans, bamboo, found on the beaches and in the hills, enhance Hawks Cry. A lovely feature is the sand decorated splash back above the cooker.
