Property Description

Exquisitely designed, Serenity embodies the best Caribbean living has to offer. No detail has been left unattended; its outstanding architecture blends with exceptional finishes, state-of-the-art technology and sumptuous furnishings to create a world-class villa that will appeal to the most discerning global property investor. Located on one of the most exclusive ridges overlooking Barbados' Platinum Coast, this newly built villa encompasses over 13,500 sq ft of covered living space and boasts unparalleled panoramic views of the borderline gully and island's countryside to the east, with the Caribbean Sea and stunning Royal Westmoreland championship golf course to the west. Upon entering the grounds, Serenity's mastering of the extraordinary is immediately apparent. The curved cobble stone driveway, bordered by expertly designed and maintained gardens, leads to the majestic entrance of the stunning coral stone villa; framed by beautiful gardens, its copper guttering, hand-crafted shutters and shingle-style roof create an awe-inspiring first impression of the home's beauty. Serenity's floor plan has been cleverly designed by renowned American architect Jeff Harrell to afford optimal views from every room of the villa; large sash windows and terrace doors are positioned to provide the best vantage points overlooking the countryside, sea or golf course. They also allow the cooling tradewind breezes to flow through the home, creating an unparalleled atmosphere of tranquility. The Great Room is simply breathtaking; with music hall proportions and soaring ceilings, it is the centerpiece of the villa's interior living space. The room features floor-to-ceiling pocket doors that slide away to reveal the spectacular views of the property's stunning double-sided free-form swimming pool with cascading waterfall infinity edges and a swim-up bar area. The pool's adjacent terraces offer luxurious space for sunbathing; as the sun reaches its pinnacle heat, giant sun screens automatically roll down, retaining the enchanting views while creating shady spaces for that perfect lazy afternoon. The dining gazebos and out door areas are ideal for breezy al fresco lunches or evening cocktails under a starlit Caribbean sky. The kitchen is a chef's dream; featuring top of the line amenities, it’s ideal for entertaining and informal dining. Whilst the kitchen has been designed to be open plan, it can be easily converted to an enclosed area accessible by doors or archway if preferred. The formal dining area features hand-laid herringbone wooden floors, custom made wine cellar storage areas, high ceilings and exceptional views of the Caribbean Sea beyond the adjacent terrace. An elegant, wood-paneled library and office with custom cabinetry, powder room and beautiful guest bedroom with private terrace complete the ground floor layout. The upper level features the master bedroom and an additional bedroom suite, all featuring exceptional finishes, hand-finished ceiling mouldings and private terraces with views of the entire West Coast of Barbados. The en suite bathrooms have freestanding cast-iron bathtubs, separate walk-in showers, hand-laid mosaic tiling and elegant vanities and cabinetry. The lower level of the home features an impressive array of amenities, including a state-of-the-art cinema with a 15 ft. wide screen, cutting-edge surround sound system and luxurious armchair seating, as well as a brick-lined, air-conditioned wine cellar and two additional rooms currently appointed as a fully-equipped gym, storage and games area and a self-contained apartment with its own entrance ideal for live-in staff or security. The guest cottage, accessible from the pool deck, has been built to the same exacting standards as the main villa. The self-contained unit has a spacious living room and kitchen, ideal for visiting family and friends. The two bedrooms feature high ceilings, crown-ceiling moldings and sumptuous finishes, as well as en suite bathrooms and private west-facing terraces with sun loungers for afternoon relaxation. Serenity's expert design extends beyond its physical beauty; the villa has been constructed with modern lifestyle, state of the art security and efficient upkeep in mind. No expense has been spared; built to Dade County standards; the villa’s external fixtures and finishes provide all-weather and impact protection, as well as superior soundproofing and security. Indeed, Serenity’s sense of security and privacy is second to none; a natural gully borders the entire eastern edge of the property, which has been enhanced by walls and railings, while razor wire fencing hidden by extensive landscaping lines the north and south borders of the property. Non-intrusive cameras with DVR back-up recordings are strategically placed along the perimeter of the building, The listing is inclusive all fixtures, fittings and furnishings. The current owner has also agreed to customise any design for a gym and self-contained apartment on behalf of a new owner at no additional cost. All appliances, equipment, windows and build include full manufacturer and/or builder warranties.
