Set on five acres of gently sloping land with sea view and surrounded by manicured lawns, today’s Great River House
is the product of a massive renovation in 2008, recreating it as one of the newest homes in this group.
The large serpentine pool features an infinity waterfall edge, fountain, expansive stone terrace and divided shallow children’s pool.
In a private gated neighborhood of other upscale villas,
the entire property is fenced and entered through wrought iron gates, ensuring complete privacy.
Candlelight dinners are served in an interior air-conditioned
dining room or al fresco on the 2,400-square-foot pool terrace.
Various nooks and crannies are thoughtfully provided for
individual escapes. A flower-filled side courtyard with
out-door shower offers a special hideaway
for rejuvenating spa treatments on request.
