Situated on a 1.3 acre hill top over-looking the Caribbean and Atlantic,this architecturally unique home captures stunning sea views as well as the engaging topography of pastoral landscapes and Carriacou’s highest, aptly named peak, High North. Built by hand by local craftsmen in 1989, before Cherry Hill electricity and cement mixers were in use on Carriacou, the green heart and masonary structure blends a contemporary aesthetic with a sturdy traditional island grace. The flooring throughout is of locally made coconut fiber tile. A 23 foot living room ceiling opens onto a vast deck with plunge pool, providing easy entertaining yet affording an uncomplicated and intimate lifestyle. Murals, depicting local folklore, by American painter Barbara Jenny, decorate the entry areas. The Shell House features an en-suite full bath, two bedrooms with private decks, outdoor shower, mature gardens and wood furnishings by skilled Kayak artisans.

The property includes a separate guest cottage/caretaker apartment (see slide show below) and garage, three hammock cabanas, and a colonial style wood-fired beehive oven. Lots A & C some 22,587 sq. ft, with full sea view, may be sold off or developed.
