Jamaica's Rose Hall Developments debuts new residential community

MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica -- Rose Hall Developments -- owner of 7,000-acre Rose Hall Plantation and Cinnamon Hill Golf Course adjacent to Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa -- announces the establishment of Founders Village, a new, luxury residential community.

Founders Village lots range from three to four acres and feature unobstructed golf course, ocean and mountain views. Located 500 feet above sea level and only 15 minutes from Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, lots average $500,000 per acre.

"Our newest addition to Rose Hall's real estate offerings is sure to please luxury connoisseurs," says Michael Rollins, Vice President of Rose Hall Developments. "Panoramic Caribbean vistas and easy access to beaches, golf, shopping and Jamaica's culture enrich vacation homeowners and retirees."

The master-planned, gated community will be equipped with all modern-day accoutrements. Residents will also enjoy preferred tee times at Cinnamon Hill and other area golf courses, as well as access to a new beach club.

The Greens, a neighboring residential community, has only seven lots remaining. Featuring golf course frontage, each is about one acre and $350,000. Nearby retail and office space, as well as beachfront property for resort development, is also available.

Historic Rose Hall Plantation was purchased more than 40 years ago by the late American entrepreneur John W. Rollins. It has since been transformed from 18th century sugar-cane farms into a popular sanctuary for recreation and relaxation.
