Palace sights in Southern Jamaica
- Sort by:
The extravagant Huntingdon Summit mansion in May Day, about 3km southeast of the town center, forms the yang to Bloomfield Great House’s yin. The octagonal home is of palatial proportions, with wraparound plate-glass windows and artificial cascades that tumble into a swimming pool, from where waters feed into a pond in the lounge. The ostentatious furnishings reflect the catholic tastes of its owner, Cecil Charlton, a millionaire farmer, politician and self-promoter who served as the mayor of Mandeville during the 1970s and 1980s.
