On a stunning promontory, once the site of an old stone fort, sits a remarkable new home named Fortlands Point. From its breathtaking location on the tip of the peninsula, the commanding view encompasses the turquoise water of Discovery Bay on one side and the deep blue Caribbean Sea on the other.
The views are simply magnificent. The clear buoyant water and adjacent reefs are a paradise for snorkelers and divers. Just a few feet from the point, the protected reefs are a colorful coral world of Jackfish, Parrot Fish, Wrass and Sergeant Majors. The stereophonic sound of waves lapping the coral and beaches lulls guests to sleep each night.
Textures of teak, cedar, Italian tile and Persian rugs complement the dramatic architecture. With families in mind, seven bedrooms (including two specifically for children) have been thoughtfully designed on individual split levels.
The comfortable verandah is complete with black granite bar, ice maker and television. Sunset cocktail hours here drift into leisurely long dinners under the stars on any of five open-air dining areas. Inside is the formal dining room with 100-year-old 12′ mahogany heirloom table. As a special treat, the staff will serve dinner on the very point itself, followed by a seaside bonfire if you wish ~ making for evenings to treasure and remember.
Seven old cannons dot the two-acre grounds. Across the lawn is the indoor glass-backed squash court. The adjacent mirrored fitness room includes a universal weight machine and elliptical cycle in a breezy space with a wonderful view of the sea.
Child friendly, Fortlands Point offers two complimentary port-a-cribs, one high chair and games for children (and adults too). The DSS television system includes Disney and and other children’s programming. For more water adventures at various costs, the 52′ Suzie Q will take guests sport fishing and picnicking, a wonderful treat for adults and children alike. If you’ve left your own pets at home, you’ll be happy to see two playful German Shepherds romping on the lawn. They love children.
