The airport is a ten minute drive, the south coast with it’s bars and restaurants is nearly 15 minutes away and golf can be reached in less than that. Grocery shopping at Six Roads is no more than five minutes away and once one get’s home with the shopping there would be little reason to leave. Only five minutes to Grantley Adams International Airport, ten minutes to the south coast and St Lawrence Gap with all the bars, restaurants and nightlife one could want
It is a low density high revenue area with large land plots and a true feeling of seclusion and tranquility.
In close proximity are two beaches of outstanding beauty.
The 8,600 sq ft house sits on over an acre of water front land with uninterrupted views of the atlantic. Set back a few hundred feet from the 30 ft high cliff edge one can enjoy the spectacular views of the sea crashing along the coast line and blasting through the blow holes along the rock front.
All the plots in the area are covered by a covenant so that no one is able to disturb the views of a neighbour by implementing a strict building line.
Whispering Palms has just been completed.
One enters through palatial front doors into the travatined tiled great room. The hand built stair case swirls to the second floor and the combined living and dining room opens on to a large covered terrace overlooking the garden and sea.
There truly is a feeling of space with the grande room being the epicentre of the house with the kitchen leading off on one side and the bar and tv room on the other.
The kitchen opens onto the wrap around terraces at both the back and the front of the house. It has an island with hob and black granite work surfaces and the whole kitchen is hand crafted.
Leading out from the kitchen is the air conditioned office , utility room, work shop and garage.
On the opposite side of the grande room is the tv and bar room , again this is fully air conditioned.
Adjacent to the tv room is the 1000 sq ft air conditioned one bed one bath cottage. It boasts a seperate entrance and has it's own covered patio and sundeck. Again travatine tiles are found throughout , the bathroom sports Italian fittings and the bedroom has sash windows with louvres on either side to best utilize the south east breezes and palmleaf styled fans with coral stone light fittings complement the modern building.
Back in the grande room one takes the magnificent stair case to three bedrooms. The house is wonderfully symmetrical. The master bedroom with its covered terrace is vast with a walk in wardrobe the size of an office. On the opposite side of the bedroom is located a fabulous bathroom with Duravit bath and mosaic tiling. .
The two bedrooms on either side of the master are also en suite and have views of both the ocean and land.
The swimming pool is set to the side of the house so as not to interrupt the ocean views. It is 30 ft by 15 ft and is surrounded by an ample sundeck.
The house is truly stunning and is located in a very sought after area, a must see!!
