This is a gracious, traditional, colonial-style house, beautifully furnished with hand-painted and decorated walls. Once the residence of the American Ambassador, it was extended by Oliver Messel, creating a very spacious reception/living area.

There are masses of comfortable seating areas and the prettiest coral stone-covered patio, cooled by overhead fans and perfect for al-fresco dining. The patio overlooks the walled garden, which is filled with an array of tropical trees and plants and has the pool as a focal point.

From the house you cross the drive to a secret gate opening directly onto one of the best beaches on the island. The clear, sheltered water is roped off for safe swimming and is ideal for all water sports. Or you can stroll along the beach and watch the sun go down from the bar terrace of the charming and luxurious Cobblers Cove Hotel.

Four of the double, air-conditioned bedrooms are situated on the first floor, each with private bathrooms. A fifth bedroom and bathroom are located on the ground floor for easy access.

The house has a wonderful team of staff including a butler and chef, and is surely one of the most elegant and refined houses on the island.

This is just a selection of some of the villas we represent. We are constantly on the lookout for new properties to add to our portfolio and are always delighted to look for that very special house if you haven’t found what you are looking for. Properties are available throughout the year by arrangement.

So do call, we would love to talk to you.

Old fashioned Bajan living at its best.
