Sitting on a ridge above the West Coast of Barbados with dramatic views out to the ocean, Atelier House is a stunning Caribbean retreat. The design was conceptualised in close collaboration with the interior architect / Owner, who has completed projects for discerning homeowners in London, France, Italy and Kenya.
The dramatic double-height living space maximizes the stunning views which extend beyond the outdoor terraces and pool across a mahogany tree-filled gully to the Caribbean Sea. In addition to the ground-level terraces and 32 x 27 ft. pool there is a large roof terrace and mezzanine-level study offering stunning views of the West Coast. The villa is surrounded by a half-acre of gardens featuring indigenous palms, lilies, bougainvillea and many flowering shrubs.
The accommodation comprises four spacious bedrooms; the upstairs master suite has a glazed balcony with views over the sea and a covered outdoor terrace for relaxing; the en suite bathroom has separate bath and shower facilities. The three guest bedrooms are all located on the ground floor; an en suite guest bedroom features an enclosed outdoor shower, while the two additional guest bedrooms share a bathroom between them.
The vacant 20,699 sq ft plot adjacent is also available for sale by request.
