Welcome to one of Peter de Savary's Homes in Grenada - Mount Edgecombe
The Mount Edgecombe Estate was created by Lord Edgecombe of Devon in the late 1700's and recently restored by Peter de Savary and now available for rental. The extensive Estate affords its guests a blissful and romantic escape. One which is entirely private but not remote.
Sitting serenely above the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, in a sheltered yet elevated location on the little-explored western coast of Grenada, the Estate is 30 minutes drive from the capital, St Georges and 40 minutes from the airport.
This impressive and elegant Great House evokes memories of grandeur and opulence. It is certainly the place to choose if you are looking to assemble your friends or family for a memorable occasion.
Situated amongst fruit trees, shrubs and exotic plants of the plantation, there are magnificent views from every aspect. The traditional Caribbean style of plantation house design has been used to good effect to create a home with well-proportioned rooms, magnificent terraces and colourful decoration, including teak floors and unique pieces of art and antiques from the personal collection of Peter de Savary.
The main house comprises a drawing room, snooker room, covered dining terrace, study, kitchen, master bedrooms suite with dressing room and bathroom and three further guest bedrooms with en suite bathrooms arranged over two floors. An expansive wrap-around veranda is the perfect place for just soaking up the views, reclining in the hammock with a good book, or enjoying leisurely meals.
Gardens lead down to the Long House with two further bedroom suites each with feature bathrooms and porches.
The highlight of the house is perhaps the airy living and dining quarters of the Great Room with its adjoining aviary, nutmeg courtyard and flower gardens and two dramatic infinity pools and teak-decked sunbathing terraces. Cooled by the trade winds, the Great Room has its own bar and separate plantation kitchen and sound system.
A cook and housekeeper are available throughout the rental and who live in separate staff quarters on the estate.
In the evening the pool and grounds are illuminated with soft lighting. The plantation and vegetable gardens offer fresh produce for your meals.
From US$9500 per week plus 10% service.
