Thursday, 17 March 2016

A stunning Barbados island estate, one of only nine luxury homes in the exclusive Westland Heights gated community, will be sold at absolute auction with no minimum bid and no reserve on Tuesday, April 19th, at 2:00 p.m. by Grand Estates Auction Company. The elegant island villa offers spectacular ocean views from its hilltop vista, three bedrooms in the main house with two poolside guest houses, a 50-foot infinity pool, outdoor entertaining space, breathtaking views from every room, exquisite finishes and architectural details, and state-of-the art systems throughout the home. One of the most desirable properties in Barbados, this home offers tranquility and gated seclusion just minutes from all the best of Barbados, recently voted “The Caribbean’s Best Destination of 2016” by Expedia.

“A luxury vacation home in Barbados’s exclusive Westland Height community becoming available for purchase is extremely rare, and presents an amazing buying opportunity,” stated Grand Estates Auction Company Director of Operations Jeremy LeClair. “When the gavel drops on April 19th, there will be a new owner of this hilltop Caribbean retreat enjoying ocean sunsets that take your breath away. We are excited to present the first ever luxury real estate auction in Barbados; it is sure to be a special event.”

The light-filled residence, offered fully furnished, features three bedrooms in the main residence with two poolside cottages for guests. In all, the home has five large bedrooms; seven bathrooms; a custom-designed gourmet chef’s kitchen; formal and informal dining and entertaining areas; and expansive indoor-outdoor living taking full advantage of the ocean views. Architectural design elements include coral stone render, marble, onyx, and granite finishes; custom millwork; and Greenheart hardwood flooring. A property-wide Creston audio and lighting system and a Voltaire solar power system, which allows the property to operate off-grid if needed, are among the state-of-the-art technology features of the home. Resort amenities include a 50-foot infinity pool and a separate four-foot-deep kids’ pool; approximately one acre of lush, mature gardens, incorporating a gazebo and koi pond; and abundant outdoor entertainment space on the Brazilian limestone verandas, terraces, and poolside bar.

The Caribbean paradise of Barbados is a favorite of celebrities and connoisseurs who choose to live and play on the vibrant island. For the athlete, Barbados boasts five world-class golf courses, including the renowned Sandy Lane Resort, Royal Westmoreland, and Apes Hill; tennis; trail and beach horseback riding; deep-sea fishing; scuba diving; snorkeling; sailing; and surfing. The social scene includes cricket matches, polo tournaments, and Barbados’s famed yachting regattas. Cultured pleasures are around every quaint corner: designer shopping at the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre featuring couture shops such as Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, Armani, and Cartier; five-star dining at Holetown; the premier jazz festival of the Caribbean; or a waterfront stroll under a breathtaking sunset on the Platinum Coast.
