architectural style of Devon House has been described
as Jamaican-Georgian displaying very formal and symmetrical
lines. The Georgian style came about in England between
1714 and 1811 when four Kings named George reigned successively.
The design shows a mixture of Creole and Georgian styles
adapted to the tropical climate. An elegant, single staircase
sweeps up to the beautiful wooden façade with its
many jalousied panels. Exquisitely carved fanlights can
be seen above the doorways.
House is furnished with a collection of Jamaican, Caribbean,
English and French antiques and Jamaican reproductions
that evoke a Jamaican Great House from the years 1860-1870.
There are several distinctive features of the era that
continue to thrill visitors to the Devon House Mansion
including the Ballroom which boasts the original English
Chandelier that George Stiebel, purchased for the room.
The ceiling, done in Wedgwood style, is also original
to the House.
