Serenity is the embodiment of classic Caribbean luxury. Designed by world famous architect Jeff Harrell, this majestic home delivers privacy, security and opulence in an exclusive ridge front setting, overlooking Barbados Platinum Coast. A curved cobblestone driveway meanders through the impeccably designed and maintained gardens to the front entrance of the villa, graced by an elegant fountain. Serenitys hand-carved coral stone entrance, copper guttering, hand-crafted shutters and shingle-style roof create an awe-inspiring first impression of the homes beauty. A bridged entrance over a tranquil koi pond sets the tone for the interior.
The stately great room is breathtaking and generously scaled, with soaring ceilings. Its open layout allows the cooling trade winds in, while floor-to-ceiling pocket doors slide away to reveal panoramic views over the countryside, the Royal Westmoreland golf course, and out to sea. From the great room one can also enjoy the view of the propertys stunning freeform swimming pool with cascading waterfall infinity edges and a swim-up bar. The 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 the perfect lazy afternoon. Enjoy breezy al fresco lunches in the dining gazebo, or evening cocktails under a starlit Caribbean sky.
Just off the great room is the kitchen a true epicures delight featuring top flight amenities including a double oven, pantry, thick marble work surfaces, oversized double fridges/freezers/dishwashers, custom cabinetry and a marble-topped island perfect for sharing informal moments with friends. Floor-to-ceiling windows let natural light in and frame views of the countryside to the east. The formal dining room, accessible via the kitchen, features hand-laid herringbone wood floors, custom made wine cellar storage, high ceilings and sea views.
This outstanding home expertly marries physical beauty with smart functionality and was built with state of the art security and efficient upkeep in mind. The composite concrete shingle-style roof, built to Dade County standards, provides full hurricane protection, as do the impact and weatherproof exterior doors. A silent, integrated air-conditioning system provides cool comfort throughout. Control temperature, ceiling fans, lighting and audio in each room via laptop, iPhone or switch. The buildings water supply is specially filtered to provide optimal quality, as well as to ensure the longevity of all appliances, equipment and piping. In the event of a power cut, all security, lighting and amenities are instantly restored by a diesel-powered generator.
This masterfully designed sanctuary encompasses every detail required for fine living, including an elegant wood-paneled library and office, two wine cellars, a fully equipped gym and games room, a state-of-the-art cinema with 15-ft. screen, surround sound and luxurious armchair seating. A guest cottage, finished to the same exacting standards as the main residence, provides additional accommodation. All levels have stairwell and elevator access.
