"Glasstonia" is on Maxwell Main Road, Christ Church - Newly renovated three (3) bedrooms house with the Master Bedroom with A/C. The house and land which has been in our family for over a century is the pride and joy of our family. It’s legacy is rich, to think the farthest ancestor we were able to trace was a my 6th generation great-grandmother, Margaret born a slave on the Beachy Head plantation in St. Philip. By the circa late 1800’s her descendants owned over an acre of land which the house is on today. Although the property is no longer over an acre, this 20,000 sq ft property is perfect for any family or the solo traveler who just wants room to spread out.
A gated front lawn for children to play and enjoy in a secure enclosed area. For security, we have sensor lights and gates placed at the front, by the drive way, gallery and front door. Plugs for the electrical outlets.
