Golden Rock Estate

Windfall, a charming historic home built of stone and redwood in the 1960s, has survived the test of time and now enjoys many modern updates. With its simple, colorful furnishings, the house has taken on a boho vibe. An endless wraparound veranda surrounds the house. The classic home is timeless with its large rooms, fabulous views, and lush, peaceful Golden Rock location. The current owners updated the kitchen and baths, and added a fabulous large pool and sundeck with amazing vistas. Windfall is truly a gem for some lucky new owner to create a future in this wonderful historic home, with the lines and grace that are truly Nevis.
