America’s fascination with spy thrillers has certainly paid off for best-selling author Ken Follett. The writer who has penned a total of 29 books in the last 35 years — a combo of thrillers and historic novels — (some written in this actual lush estate), has just put his “thrilling” Caribbean estate up for sale for $25 million.

The beachside property located on a private island off the coast of Antigua called Jumbo Bay Island features an 11,000-square-foot home called “Bananaquit” after a local bird.

Town and Country provides a peek at the exclusive location overlooking Pasture Beach.

The stunning property has such noteworthy features as eight bedrooms, a tennis court, a 50-foot fresh water pool with attached spa, two six-set golf carts and even a private chef, housekeeper and every crime novelist’s scapegoat: a butler.
