The Beach House was originally part of an estate belonging to Lord Lyle, and is situated about four miles west of Montego Bay in the village of Reading.

The main house and pool were built in the 1950s. The villa has many attractive period features – an intriguing mix of Jamaican colonial style and Miami art deco – which the present owners have sought to preserve.

Although the interior is spacious and elegant, the Beach House was – because of its unique location – designed for outside living. The north-facing patio commands uninterrupted views of the sea to the west, and Bogue lagoon (a protected marine park) and Montego Bay to the east.

The 150ft sea frontage includes a small sand beach and a jetty. One of its most extravagant features is the 51ft swimming pool – one of the largest private pools on the island.
