Frankfort is a historic 17th Century fortress, brilliantly restored as a remarkable four bedroom home, on its own pristine white sand beach.
For decades, Sir Harold and Lady Mary Mitchell hosted an array of renowned guests to Frankfort and a peek at the leather-bound guest book hints at a fascinating history of names: Winston Churchill, Queen Mary, Prince Edward, Dr. Henry Kissinger and Sir Noel Coward to name a few. Today, although the original two-foot thick rough stone walls and gun slots are still in place, Frankfort is a paradigm of 21st Century laid-back elegance.
With no expense spared a brilliant half million dollar renovation introduced Italian Travertine floors, chic and comfortable sitting areas in crisp white fabrics, and stunning modern bedrooms with all new bathrooms and glass-wall showers. Floor-to-ceiling bookcases divide the ground floor into two sections: one, an elegant dining space and the other, a comfy living room, television, music and games area.
The adjoining 80 foot veranda is the gathering area for drinks, hors d’oeuvres and al fresco dining as the sun sets over the sea. The villa’s beach is soft, white sand and the swimming water is wonderful with a live reef three hundred yards offshore. It is on the beach the staff may surprise you with a torchlight beach feast one night!
