Price Range:

Description:

The official residence of the Prime Minister of Jamaica, it was formerly known as Prospect Pen, after it was constructed by one of the richest planters in Jamaica, Sir Simon Taylor. The Jamaican Government bought it in 1928 to house the British Colonial Secretary Sir Reginald Edward Stubbs. Vale Royal was refurbished to become the residence of Jamaica’s first prime minister Alexander Bustamante in 1962. It was found to be too small and was instead used for the Minister of Finance. In 1980, it was refurbished again and became the official residence of the Prime Minister. Today, Vale Royal is used for state functions, ceremonies and meetings.
