GoldenEye in Jamaica has always been a legendary destination.
One and two bedroom signature cottages, all waterfront with amazing views, are available for private ownership. The Jamaica properties are designed by award winning architect Ann Hodges and are adorned with fantastic porches, jalousie shutters, outdoor showers, intricate hand made furnishings, and top line appliances and fixtures.
The developer began construction in September 2009 and will re-open the resort in October 2010 with eleven new beach cottages, a new suspension bridge, and a fantastic water-front restaurant.
During the Fleming years, the Jamaica property of 17 acres was famous (and infamous!) for the annual trips Ian Fleming would make to his oasis on the North Coast of Jamaica where he wrote each of the Bond novels.
When Mr. Fleming passed away, Chris Blackwell had already founded Island Records and moved quickly to secure this spectacular property. Through the years, Mr. Blackwell added a number of small villas for his recording artists and friends to enjoy. In the 1990’s he acquired nine art-deco hotels in Miami (Tides, Delano, Marlin, etc.) and is credited with helping to revitalize South Beach Miami with his boutique approach.
GoldenEye was brought into his hotel group as the ultimate boutique retreat. His Island Outpost hotel group has been a trendsetter in the boutique style that has now become the rage globally. Years ago, he acquired the two small islands surrounded by coral reefs that are right next to the original 17 acres. Today, GoldenEye is comprised of 52 acres and will be home to 18 new cottages in October 2010.
This is quintessential, classic Caribbean architecture and represents the most intriguing private property for sale in Jamaica.
The initial phase is a collection of 11 cottages available for ownership.
