The Little Hill estate in the legacy resort of The Tryall Club is a masterpiece of understated elegance infused with Jamaica’s welcoming lifestyle. Completed in 1959 by acclaimed architect Robert Hartley in the classic West Indian style and as the first home built at Tryall, it commands the club’s premier location atop a 200-foot hill, providing breathtaking 360-degree views of the Caribbean Sea, surrounding hills, and the club’s internationally acclaimed championship golf course. Completely renovated in 2012 and magnificently furnished, the villa is built around a circular 30-foot-diameter swimming pool, with extensive covered terraces throughout and gardens bursting with bougainvillaea and anchored by mature trees. Ideal for entertaining, Little Hill has been host to international celebrities over the years, including the late Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother who stayed here. On the west side of the villa is a covered terrace, 100-feet long and overlooking the sea, with a dining area which easily seats 24 people and, because of its elevated position, enjoys gentle breezes throughout the year. A tennis court with covered spectator-viewing area completes this alfresco oasis. The villa is magnificently furnished and has a particularly fine collection of Jamaican paintings, as well as lovely linen, china, and objets d’art. Tryall Club represents one of the most exclusive and prestigious homeownership opportunities on the island. Boasting 1.5 miles of coastline with beautiful beaches, a challenging 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, fitness centre and spa, massage centre, kid’s club, beauty salon, water sports facilities and other amenities, this prestigious 2,200-acre community is ideal for family vacations surrounded by luxury or for purchasing an investment property offering the potential for generating high rental returns.
