Devon House was built in 1881 by George Stiebel, Jamaica’s first black millionaire. Devon House is a classic example of Jamaican Georgian architecture, and is a National Heritage Site. It is one of Jamaica's most celebrated landmarks.

This build has three floors. The first floor contains the main entry hall (Palm Hall), entry vestibule, dining room, living room, stairway hall, gentleman's games room, sitting room, fainting room, and bathroom. The second floor contains the upper vestibule, upper stairway hall, ballroom, master bedroom, master bath and two dressing rooms, Young Lady's bedroom, bath and dressing room, Young Lady's sewing/writing room, study, and sitting room. The attic is the servants' quarters, which contains the kitchen, laundry, servants' dining room, broom closet, four servants' bedrooms and two servants' bathrooms. The kitchen was very inspired by Downton Abbey. It contains no CC.

I hope you all enjoy! I had so much fun building it!

** Note this build is not an exact replica. The house has been renovated and extended over the years, and is now a public museum with cafés and shops. I decided to build it as it used to look, without the extended verandah and shops. As you can see in the attached images, some rooms were closely replicated, such as the Palm Hall, ballroom, vestibules, dining room, etc. But some rooms were improvised or altered, like if I could not find photos or if they didn't translate well, such as the downstairs bath, main staircase, upstairs living room, and servants' quarters. Another noticeable difference is the roof, which was difficult to translate.
