Nestled on the South Coast of Jumby Bay island on the shores of the Caribbean Sea, Egret House is a true architectural masterpiece. Conceptualized by renowned architect, Andrew Goodenough, and crafted in 2004 by Robert Construction, the estate’s polygonal rondavel-style structures and interwoven system of ponds and waterways work to create an extraordinary design aesthetic that is reminiscent of an African Village. The 7-bedroom, 8.5 bath house sits on 3.77 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and offers breathtaking views of the seascape and across to Bird Island, Guiana Island and of mainland Antigua. Egret House is a work of art set amidst a tropical landscape and represents the pinnacle in private island living.
Impeccably designed with rounded structures and grand, open spaces, Egret House strikes an impressive chord and boasts fine interior finishes. Custom-built wooden doors and windows in deep, rich stains complement the palatial home and allow rooms to be flooded with natural light, while ornate fixtures by Philippe Starck enhance Egret’s artistic appeal.
Jumby Bay is located just minutes away from V.C. Bird International Airport that runs daily non-stop flights to and from North America and Europe. The journey is a matter of just 4.5 hours from New York or Toronto, and 7.5 hours from London. The excellent private jet facilities at the airport can make the journey times even shorter.
Flanked by substantial obtuse columns and delicate palms that both work to frame magnificent water views, the main living room is a grandiose rotunda. Open on all sides, the majestic space is built in perfect harmony with the awe-inspiring seascape and Caribbean breeze and flows organically into the outdoor landscape.
Situated amidst native flora and fauna and encircled by ponds full of koi carp and tilapia, the dining pavilion seemingly floats in the 6-foot waterways that surround it. A true tropical haven, the space accommodates ample seating for outdoor dining against the glorious scene of a glistening bay.
Vivid wood tones adorn the rich flooring and palatial ceiling of the master suite and work to create an opulent oasis that exudes tranquillity. Orientated to optimise views of Bird Island which sits across the bay to the East, the master suite looks out over a turquoise expanse of Caribbean waters that makes for a true island escape.
