I personally love history and I am excited to give a brief background on this property which is now back on the market for sale.
Monsieur de Longueville once owned a vast majority of this northern region and in the 1740s built a massive house which boasted amazing sea views of Pigeon Island in the distance and an expanse of gardens and lawn. It was completely destroyed during a slave rebellion during the French Revolution fifty odd years later. A distant relative Comte de Brette took over the property and built himself a grand mansion with the largest sugar cane fields which was demolished in 1817 by a hurricane.
Retired British Lieutenant Colonel E Harrison reconstructed the house in the 1960s which then became The Great House restaurant. This establishment became known for exquisite French cuisine infused with local touches and formed part of the nearby Hotel’s dining experience for guests, visitors and locals alike. A marvelous venue for catered weddings and parties with its open patios and courtyard. Later on the Sir Derek Walcott outdoor theatre was built among the matured trees and foliage of many variety. Seating for 200 persons with a center stage for dance, music and drama.
Today this historic and rare oppourity is available for sale. Three separate plots totaling 10 acres including the building and theatre.
