About Jim Leavitt
Owner purchased the condemned hulk of a 2 story castle and 750' of shore in 2002 out of a foreclosure sale. Sold the last 200' of sandy beach to a friend and later sold another 100'; keeping 450' for the estate. Neither owner has built as yet, but he would like the neighbors!
Jim Leavitt purchased this villa in 2002
Why Jim Leavitt chose Grand Cayman
The Castle is 24' above sea level and has a commanding 180 degree view of the east end reef, is within walking distance of the best dive shop in the Caribbean (2013) Ocean Frontiers; and had room to install a large infinity pool and 2BR guesthouse. Owner added a story to the Castle as well.
What makes this villa unique
Unique privacy, space and views. The stone patio out on the point offers guests the opportunity to watch for shooting stars at night and observe the kite-boarders and dive boats during the day. Eagle Rays and even the Christmas Manta have been seen in front of the Castle in the shallows.
