Real estate agents have always lived by the view of location, location, location. Other elements of design, build quality, space, security,outdoor space and materials come far behind the initial "location".
This stunning 4 bed property located on the west coast of Barbados known as the Platinum coast (location covered) is truly incredible for all and every reason mentioned above.
The location: a minutes drive to beaches, a minutes drive to not one but two golf courses (Sandy Lane Old Nine and The Green Monkey). A five minute drive to Royal Westmoreland Golf. Restaurants such as Tides, The Cliff, Lonestar are but a stones throw away.
High end duty free shopping at Limegrove Entertainment Centre http://www.limegrove.com where Louis Vuitton, Boss, Cartier, Polo and Cutler and Gross can be found (to name but a few). Supermarket shopping is also a five minute drive as are beach bars such as Ju Jus
Hotels with their dining facilities and bars are also numerous and close by Sandy Lane, Coral Reef and Colony Club to name a few.
Then there is the house itself. Sitting in between Holders Polo and Sandy Lane Golf in the high end neighbourhood of Dairy Meadows and this stunning Barbados Home is located overlooking the golf at the end of a cul-de-sac.
The design team at Robertson Ward headed by the recently retired genius of David Senior responsible for some of the most attractive buildings not only in Barbados but through the Caribbean , his many years meant he understood the need for high ceilings, from which direction winds blow the need for air movements around a house in a hot climate, how to secure a home but retain open air aspects, the need for materials that will not ruin in the Caribbean climate etc.
Every detail in this house is top quality.
The security gates are classy but not gaudy, there are classic touches such as half cut window boxes that keep direct sunlight from windows, the floors are porcelain and travertine, the roof a stunning slate, the ceilings illuminated via dorm windows, the master bedroom suite a fabulous size, the master bathroom is one of the most beautiful spaces. The open plan living and dining "space" exits onto the rear patio via ornamental but classically modern grilles that are ideal for security but beautiful.
Doors and frames are naturally stained cedar after all why paint over a picture created by mother nature. There are two offices (his and hers) ideally located on different sides of the house.
The kitchen with its island, counter tops, tiled flooring and superior white goods are top notch. The two car , car port where one can move from car to kitchen without getting wet in one of our heavy downpours, if you have ever been in one, you will understand!!
This house is without doubt superlative to many houses with twice the price tag. This property will not stay unsold for any length of time and should be viewed at haste.
