Patrick Waldemar is known for his creative genius and exquisite homes. He's actually building another called Villa Monicove, on the southcoast - where he's grown fond of the people and the sophisticated, simple country life -- as a way of paying homage to his mum Monica. It's also the perfect opportunity according to Waldemar "to exercise 'his' concrete creativity". Indeed a joke he shares is that building his first house got him his MBA in combining Jamaican bad words; building the second got him the PHD in the same discipline.

Things are a lot better this time around thanks to contractor Peter Carbone and his fantastic all local crew who have taken Waldemar "back to kindergarten... it's 95 per cent finished and I've not had reason to use even one bad word. Villa Monicove born without a single expletive.

SO shares an exclusive peek and promises to take you back when it's complete.
