This world class super luxury villa includes 5 en suite bedrooms, a self contained suite (plus permission for a further 2 bedrooms and bathrooms) as well as a large covered terraces, double infinity edge pool with bar, dining gazebo, gym, office, banquet room, cinema, self contained apartment, wine cellar, elevator, staff/laundry areas and secure parking. The ridge from position offers stunning panoramic sea views over what will be the new Royal Westmoreland golf course. 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 the stunning Royal Westmoreland championship golf course to the west. From the moment one enters 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 front entrance of the villa, with turning circle and elegant fountain. The majestic entrance, hand-carved from solid coral stone, took six artisans weeks to create. The stunning coral stone villa is 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. A bridged entrance over a stunning fish pond filled with rare Koi fish sets the scene for the breathtaking interior found just beyond the impressive double entrance. Serenity’s floor plan has been cleverly designed by the famous 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 no exception; the main living space is simply breathtaking, with music hall proportions and soaring ceilings, it is the centerpiece of the villa’s interior living space. The entire room opens to spectacular views through floor-to-ceiling pocket doors that slide away to reveal 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. Adjacent to the Great Room, the kitchen is a chef’s dream, featuring top of the line amenities including a separate pantry, thick marble work surfaces, double-oven, oversized double fridges / freezers / dishwashers, custom-built cabinetry and a large marble-topped island, ideal for entertaining and informal dining. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the idyllic countryside view to the east, providing the kitchen with a graceful natural light, that welcoming morning sunrise and an airy atmosphere. 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, accessible from the kitchen by sliding floor-to-ceiling pocket doors, features hand-laid herringbone wooden floors, custom made wine cellar storage areas, high ceilings and exceptional views of the Caribbean Sea.
