With some homes that are upwards of US$1 million, Cherry Gardens is one of the most-coveted neighborhoods in Jamaica.
Located in upper St. Andrew, houses there could have been featured on MTV’s Cribs.
Ironshore, St. James
Head east of the Sangster International Airport along the coast and you will find a stretch of beach, speckled with golf courses, all-inclusive resorts, high-end condos and expensive shopping. Here you will find Ironshore, about 8 kilometers east of Montego Bay, is the epicenter of this little window of luxury.
The Lagoons, St. James
The Lagoons is an enclave of ultra high-end homes and apartments in a peninsular close to the Montego Bay Yacht Club. The neighborhood offers a shared outdoor swimming pool, 24-hour security, plus tennis courts and a fitness center. Quarter-acre lots start at US$500,000 and some of the most expensive homes can be valued as high as $3.25 million. Restaurants and bars and other high-end developments can be found within just 1 kilometer, and Montego Bay City Center is only a 10-minute drive away and 3 kilometers from the airport, making this neighborhood one of the most sought-after in the western end of Montego Bay.
Treasure Beach, St. Elizabeth
Treasure Beach is a gem for locals in search of the off-beat path. This is perhaps the most authentically charming and relaxing place in Jamaica. Located in Jamaica’s southwest, this quiet desert town is highly sought after by the elite.
Spring Farm, Montego Bay
For a suburb, it is the closest thing you’ll get to a “Goldilocks zone” in Kingston. It’s prestigious and definitely home to some of the most expensive houses in Jamaica.
Discovery Bay, St. Ann
In 1492, Christopher Columbus’ ship docked in this very cove that today we find an area referred to by locals as “Millionaires Row” for the plethora of ultra-modern luxury homes situated on this shoreline.
Greenwich, Blue Mountains, St. Andrew
High in the hills of the Blue Mountains lie the private homes in the community of Greenwich that are idyllic for enjoying and exploring. Near the Newcastle Soldier Camp, at 3,500 feet, just below Catherine’s Peak, these homes offer the very best in fresh mountain air, thrilling panoramic views and the gardens that are a pure delight. Many have visited and felt as though they were at heaven’s doorstep.
San San, Portland
Situated on the island’s northeast coast in an area dubbed the “Jamaican Riviera,” the neighborhood of San San sits on the mouth of the Blue Lagoon, the site of many Hollywood films. Luxury villas on this strip range from between $800,000 and $2 million.
For the pinnacle of luxury living situated along the northwestern corridor of Jamaica, people can find Georgian-style great houses and ultra-luxurious private villas in the parish of Hanover. Most properties look out over a legendary championship golf course to breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea. Homes range from $500,000 for a one-bedroom villa to upwards of $7.5 million, possibly the highest anywhere in Jamaica.
The Golden Triangle, Kingston
Manor Park and Waterworks
Adjacent to some of the other neighborhoods on the list, this area is central, lively and prestigious.
In proximity to Jacks Hill, not only is it a great location in Kingston, but it also has some great views.
With breathtaking views and US$1 million-plus homes, Stony Hill is definitely a neighborhood anyone from around the world would aspire to be in.
Smoky Vale and Cooper’s Hill
Although tucked away high up in the hills, these areas boast some of Jamaica’s most sought-after real estate.
This area has been elite since the 1970s and 1980s, and today it continues to be a great area for people.
It’s not a neighbourhood but its definitely worth adding!! As a prime location for many Jamaicans from the Diaspora who return home, Mandeville is a great mix between the hustle and bustle of the capital city, Kingston, and the beauty of the rural areas of the country.
