Built in 2009, Hummingbird Hall has been a magnificent family home, vacation villa and - most recently - a multi-award-winning wedding villa (https://hummingbirdhall.com). Nestled on the private, gated and exclusive 5,000-acre Rose Hall Estate shared by the White Witch and Cinnamon Hill golf courses; Hummingbird Hall boasts spectacular views, tranquility, security, palatial proportions and lush grounds.
The design of Hummingbird Hall plays homage to space, natural light, breath-taking scenery and cool ocean breezes. In the main house there is a formal sitting room, a study and a reading nook (all double-heighted); a dining room, a TV room, a piano room and a bar; a gym with steam room and bathroom; two cloakrooms; a well-designed kitchen, a spectacular deck with panoramic views and an infinity pool. There is also a dreamy Jamaican hardwood staircase and 4 en-suite bedrooms; three of which have large dressing rooms and two of which have huge balconies. The property is characterised by a refreshing sense of space, understated grandeur and plays tribute to Jamaica’s breath-taking scenery.
The cottage, nestled in the grounds, is self-contained and ideal for a holiday cottage or overflow accommodation. It boasts a further three en-suite double bedrooms, a balcony and a reception room. Plumbing remains for a kitchenette that can easily be reinstalled. Additionally, there are further self-contained rooms and a bathroom that have been used as staff quarters in the past.
True to its name, Hummingbird Hall is frequented by a plethora of tropical birds and butterflies. The grounds are incredibly fruitful with mango trees, ackee, grapefruit, avocados, limes and coconuts but a few of the natural delights. There are sun terraces, grassed areas and many large oversized trees for shade and hammocks. The property is serviced by mains electricity and water but also has a backup generator and water tanks. The property has not been decorated since being used as a wedding venue and would benefit from cosmetic upgrading.
The Rose Hall Estate on which Hummingbird Hall is located is internationally famous. The 5,000 acre wonderland – which includes the White Witch and Cinnamon Hill golf courses, lakes and a waterfall - can be enjoyed on foot or via golf cart. The Rose Hall Great House and the country music legend Johnny Cash's country house is also on the Estate. The Estate is also the former home of both Elizabeth Barrett-Browning and the seasonal waterfall on the 15th hole was featured in the James Bond movie “Live and let Die”. Furthermore, plush Rose Hall hotels, including Half Moon, Hilton, Hyatt, Palmyra, Sandals + Iberostar are moments away. The Estate also benefits from extensive 24-hour manned security.
Additionally, the property’s website and domain name - https://hummingbirdhall.com – is included in the sale. The wedding business has the potential to be a lucrative lifestyle business with an annual turnover of US$250,000+ if managed well.
