Details

Built in 2012, the villa's architect has also masterminded luxury design projects in Italy, France, London and Kenya. The first interior view of this modern classic is offered by the double height living area with a ceiling fan feature. It faces the infinity pool with panoramic views to the ocean beyond. British interior designer Amanda Snow created a truly unique space indoors.

This ground level also houses the well-stocked kitchen, boasting solid limestone countertops and amenities including a microwave, dishwasher and ice-maker.

The dining terrace is perfect for enjoying delicious regional cooking. There is also a very useful mezzanine study area. The downstairs en-suite bathroom connects to an evocative al fresco shower, perfect for the wonderful Caribbean climate.

The upstairs master bedroom has its own balcony facing out to sea, as well as a king size bed and en-suite shower bathroom. A second bedroom has a queen size bed and en-suite with bathtub. The two further double bedrooms have a shared bathroom with a shower. All the bedrooms benefit from air conditioning. There is a large roof terrace offering astonishing views across the trees to the sea.

The focal point of the lush half acre of gardens is the striking infinity pool. There is an adjacent relaxation sun terrace and sun deck, as well as a BBQ grill area. The enclosed nature of the garden contributes to the overall sense of privacy and exclusivity.

Location

Lower Carlton is in Saint James on the West Coast of Barbados and can be reached by car, bus or boat. The airport is just over half an hour's drive away. Grantley Adams international Airport enjoys excellent connections with global carriers including Virgin and BA.

Atelier House is situated on a dramatic ridge in the village of Lower Carlton, on the West Coast of the Caribbean island of Barbados. It is close to some of the island's best stretches of coastline, which can all be freely explored as Barbados famously has no private beaches.

Barbados is extremely easy to navigate by car or bus, and Lower Carlton is near several useful towns for shopping and exploring including Holetown and Speightstown, with its candy-coloured houses.

A short distance from Atelier House, the Carlton Variety Grill & Bar is a firm Bajan favourite. Otherwise known as Jefferson's in honour of the larger than life owner, it serves excellent barbeque and fish fry. Barbados' most famous restaurant, the Cliff, is suited to those who want to experience it as a costly but wonderful special night out, with a gorgeous coastal setting.

John Moore's Bar, right on the beach near the property is a not-to-be-missed dose of regional authenticity with cheery locals chilling out and playing games. The coastal road also yields many other street food and rum shack delights.

Understandably, with stunning white sand beaches so nearby, including the celebrated Reefs Bay beach, a lot of Lower Carlton's attractions focus on the water. There are ample diving and snorkelling opportunities in an area rich in marine life, including turtles and sharks. The fauna can also be admired from one of many local glass bottom boat tours.

Back on land, there are some world class gold courses to enjoy on Barbados. Bridgetown, the charming capital, has a craft studio, some historic buildings to admire and plenty of duty free shopping opportunities.
