Richly verdant and privately positioned on 3.8 acres within the Robert Trent Jones-designed Port Royal Golf Course ( ranked amongst the world's best public course by Golf Digest and Bermuda's best course by the New York Times), Lemon Hill is a charming Grade 1-listed home of architectural significance combining one of the best examples of 18th-century Bermudian architecture with 21st century land-use potential including existing subdivision for three additional building lots. Newly priced for a limited time, this property is well suited to equestrian and horticultural interests, as well as those who appreciate the potential of an authentically Bermudian golfer's haven or family compound,. Lemon Hill is believed to have been in the King family for over two centuries. They inherited the property from the Leacrafts, who the second Norwood Survey (1663) indicates as owning Southampton Share 32, on which Lemon Hill is positioned. The earliest section of the house forms a 'T', and later additions have been added with sensitivity. The steep pitch of the roof, the flush gable ends and the windows set under the-wall plate are all signs of great age. An ancient cedar door lead to the living room with high tray ceilings and wood floors. Adjoining this room is a fire-lit library. The bedroom hall leads to a generous master bedroom with a recently renovated bathroom plus two additional bedrooms (one with fireplace) which share a bathroom. To the south of the living room is a quarry-tiled dining room with fireplace. An interesting feature is the walled hatch to the water tank and its old hand pump. A large pantry adjoins the dining room, as does the a spacious kitchen with excellent potential for modernisation and a separate laundry with shower room. Also accessed from the dining room is sun room with exposed rafters and access to the swimming pool and sun terrace.
