Villa Destiny – Great River Claimed

Villa Destiny - Great River

Be the first to review

Destiny is a dramatic achievement of architecture and design. Its rooms stretch over 10,000ft² of indoor-outdoor living space.

Almost beyond description is the very piece of land chosen for this remarkable home: seven acres of lush tropical hillside 500′ above sea level … with a breathtaking 270-degree panorama of Caribbean Sea, densely wooded river valley and dramatic mountains. Spectacular by day, Destiny becomes even more magical after sunset when the lights of passing cruise ships and reflections of the distant hillside over Montego Bay dance across the water.

A beautiful five-minute drive through manicured acres of brilliant hibiscus, avocado, palm, grapefruit, orange, lime and mango groves brings you to the villa … secured by a bougainvillea-draped wall and electronic gate that opens to an Italianate courtyard.

Destiny’s largest pavilion is the living room, designed with clean lines and superb style. Set under a Jamaican-style vaulted exposed-beam ceiling, the living room has white walls, magnificent Balinese art, cool stone floors, and sliding glass doors that disappear into pocket walls to reveal the amazing view on three sides.

All interior rooms open to the massive verandah and north pool terrace, where the true splendor of this prize location is enjoyed. Here are the outdoor dining pavilion, where breakfasts are served overlooking the sea and river valley ~ the thatched roof gazebo with television, VCR, wet bar, icemaker and cushioned seating for 20 guests ~ and the huge mountaintop swimming pool. Cooling tradewinds and mountain air currents refresh the entire space. The morning mist drifting by Destiny down to the sea is a magical experience early each day.

The state-of-the-art kitchen has a ten-burner gas cooktop, microwave, deep fryer and gas grill ~ equipped to match the talents of the professional chefs.
