Licence to thrill - 18 residences for sale at legendary GoldenEye, Ian Fleming’s estate in Jamaica
By: Ann Adenius of Signature Residences Worldwide
Jamaica, the third largest Caribbean island is a place of extraordinary beauty, with waterfalls, golden beaches, the Blue Mountains and dense, lush vegetation. This is the home of reggae and Bob Marley: music is never far away.
This is also where the Bond story began. Ian Fleming wrote all James Bond novels from GoldenEye, his house overlooking the sea at Oracabessa on the north coast.
The house is still there today, an understated bungalow with windows opening on to the blissful gardens bursting with frangipani and almond trees and steps down to a private beach.
The GoldenEye estate was acquired in 1977 by music and entertainment entrepreneur Chris Blackwell and since then has been turned into a luxury boutique hotel; loved and frequently visited by celebrities, political figures and musicians.
18 residential waterfront cottages are now available for private ownership and are a natural expansion to this legendary resort. The one and two bedroom cottages reflect the character, intrigue, and inspiration that provided a creative sanctuary for Ian Fleming and endless notable artists.
Just like the original GoldenEye estate, the cottages all effortlessly blend the considerable outside spaces with the light filled living areas.
A select few will be able to own a residence in a community already appreciated as the ultimate Caribbean hideaway. This is a golden opportunity to buy a slice of ‘007’ history.
Prices from US$750,000.
