Dotted along the Emerald lagoon in Oracabessa, St. Mary, Jamaica, this large lot, listed for $3 million comes with a unique 750-square-foot starter cottage to be expanded to a four-bedroom, four-bath villa.

This home is within the select community of GoldenEye Resort Villas & Spa, which showcases multiple villas and cottages, and was “Ian Fleming’s Jamaica retreat when he wrote all 14 of the James Bond novels,” says listing agent Sandy Tatham of Coldwell Banker Jamaica Realty. “The property offers quiet serenity and multiple sporting and wellness activities.”

Goldeneye was conceived by the visionary hotelier Chris Blackwell and is destined to remain a world apart with two restaurants, watersports, field spa, tennis and freshwater and saltwater pools. GoldenEye makes an ideal vacation home with “its close proximity to the Ian Fleming International Airport (private aviation) — convenient for the luxury traveler,” says Tatham.
