Pimento Hill is a beautiful home with a legendary history. The home overlooks the Caribbean Sea and is conveniently located just a five minute drive from the exclusive Round Hill Resort where guests enjoy complementary beach membership.
The villa was originally built in the late 1950's for the French Count and Countess Jacques and Vera di Sibour in the period of time when Jamaica was known as a glamorous destination that attracted the likes of John Wayne, Sidney Poitier, Noel Coward, Ian Fleming and the Kennedy's among other celebrities. When Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip visited Montego Bay at the end of their Caribbean tour in 1966, they stayed with the Count at Pimento Hill. There is a scrap book of newspaper cuttings in the villa detailing all the famous guests Pimento Hill has hosted.
In the late 60s Rosser Reeves, a hugely successful American advertising executive and pioneer of television advertising, bought the villa from Count de Sibour. The AMC program, Mad Men, uses Reeves as the model for the professional accomplishments of the main character, Don Draper (Jon Hamm).
In 2007 the current owners bought Pimento Hill and extensively renovated the villa while trying to retain the period, colonial features. Owned by a family in London, the villa's atmosphere is a marriage of the grandeur of a by-gone era with modern amenities.
The villa is surrounded by 6 acres of lush gardens with many water features - water lilies, ferns, dragonflies and butterflies abound. There are mango trees, coconut palms, banana plants and even an old cotton tree. There are also large grassy lawns to play cricket or football on.
