Photographic images provide a descriptive commentary on this featured home and engage us far more emotionally than words ever could.

This ornate house of marble, granite, porcelain, and considerably more finishes, occupies almost 7,000-square-foot on one third of an acre, on the lower slopes of Johnson Hill, Hellshire Hills, St Catherine. Its 55-year-old proud possessor is one of downtown Kingston’s foremost purveyors of shoes and clothing. The owner of Bobby’s, he never thought he would own a house like this.
