Barbados villa for sale in St James'
Luxurious Barbados house for sale in St James'
This house for sale in Barbados is a showcase for classic Caribbean luxury. The villa, designed by renowned architect Jeff Harrell, sits in an exclusive and private location in St James, overlooking Barbados’ Platinum Coast.
A curved cobblestone driveway meanders through the impeccably designed and maintained gardens to the front entrance of the villa, graced by an elegant fountain. Superb security features provide complete privacy and peace of mind – the eastern edge of the property is bordered by a natural gully, enhanced by walls and railings, while razor wire fencing hidden by extensive landscaping secures the north and south borders. Strategically placed, non-intrusive cameras with DVR backup recordings further enhance the security.
The stately great room is breathtaking and generously scaled, with soaring ceilings. The open layout of the Barbados house allows the cooling tradewinds in, while floor-to-ceiling pocket doors slide away to reveal panoramic views over the countryside, the Royal Westmoreland golf course, and out to sea.
Just off the great room is the kitchen featuring top-of-the range amenities including double oven, pantry, thick marble worktops, oversized double fridges/freezers/dishwashers and a marble-topped island. Floor-to-ceiling windows let natural light in and frame views of the countryside to the east. The formal dining room, accessible via the kitchen, features hand-laid herringbone wood floors, custom made wine cellar storage, high ceilings and sea views.
There is also an elegant wood-paneled library and office, two wine cellars, a fully equipped gym and games room, plus a state-of-the-art cinema with 15-ft. screen, surround sound and luxurious armchair seating.
A guest cottage, finished to the same high standards as the main house, provides additional accommodation.
The garden hosts a stunning freeform swimming pool with cascading waterfall, infinity edges and a swim-up bar. The adjacent terraces offer luxurious space with giant sun screens, retaining the views while creating shady spaces for the perfect lazy afternoon. Enjoy breezy al fresco lunches in the dining gazebo, or evening cocktails under a starlit Caribbean sky.
The composite concrete shingle-style roof, built to Dade County standards, provides full hurricane protection, as do the impact and weatherproof exterior doors. A silent, integrated air-conditioning system provides cool comfort throughout. Temperature, ceiling fans, lighting and audio in each room is controlled via laptop, iPhone or switch. In the event of a power cut, all security, lighting and amenities are instantly restored by a diesel-powered generator.
Facilities include a commercial laundry area, staff quarters, parking, covered space for up to 8 vehicles, and a separate garage for a golf buggy. All levels have stairwell and elevator access.
The house in Barbados for sale comes fully furnished and completely turnkey, inclusive of all fixtures, fittings and furnishings.
