If you're not looking for the bells and whistles of modern Caribbean architecture, Hanover House is right for you. Its high ceilings and small treasures from another century evoke the former grandeur and elegance of a dignified past Jamaican lifestyle.
A sweeping staircase brings guests up through the three-story entrance foyer to the salmon-hued soft brick pool terrace - a 1,500-square-foot outdoor living space around the 40' x 40' private pool, picturesquely framed in white stone arches. The adjacent large living room has satellite television and opens to more terraces and views. Four shaded sitting areas, poolside chaises, and two dining tables seat 15 guests. The breakfast table overlooks a 500-acre coconut plantation. Home-cooked meals here by Pam, the jolly and talented Hanover House cook, merit special mention.
No words can adequately describe the many views from Hanover House - truly breathtaking every hour of the day and night. The villa's architecture was designed to capture both glorious sunrises across the sea and unforgettable huge sunsets beyond the hills. If you rise early, look for the storybook clouds of mist wafting down over the Great River just to the east.
Interiors at Hanover House are characterized by a few priceless Empire pieces and several antique mahogany case pieces, richly restored with their original hardware and fluted bases. English botanicals adorn the walls. The large bathrooms have their original plain cabinetry and laminated countertops, but the very comfortable beds and views from each bedroom more than make up for the lack of Corian and granite. In summary, Hanover House feels like home and has a very distinctive brand of charm and spaciousness that have drawn many families back again and again.
