Property Type: Villa / House
Mill house, Orange Hill, St James, Barbados.
Walking into this property is like walking into an Oasis. From the outside one would expect nothing special but then one enters to the double surprise that this not only is one of the most magnificent views but that one did not expect it!!
More of the inside in a moment. The house is located just east of the highway and less than two miles to Holetown. One can easily access the highway, easily access the inland roads to take you to the east coast in under twenty minutes and only five minutes or less to Holetown itself.
The location is superb! Golf is available at Sandy Lane, Royal Westmoreland and Apes Hill, all three courses are less than five minutes drive. Tennis is at Sugar Hill and Holetown.
Restaurants of every type are five minutes away. Fine dining at The Cliff and Tides not to mention Hugos or Cin Cin are also only five minutes away. Budget dining at Lemongrass (Thai), Spago (pizza/pasta) Relish (deli) are all on one's doorstep.
Watersports are of course available all along the west coast.
The house itself is an absolute gem. One approaches the house thinking little of it, it is absolutely non assuming, understated yet clean and pretty in design. There are two garages, one for vehicles and one for a yacht that has a double height level for a mast. This "room" has now a mezzanine floor and can be converted easily into a fifth bedroom.
There is a beautiful Sugar Mill Tower in the front of the house which could be converted into anything one might want and then one enters into an open plan kitchen and living room overlooking the patio and pool and the stunning view beyond.
The kitchen is well appointed and there is a master bedroom to the left that also looks out on to the pool and deck and rooms to the right of the kitchen being the vehicle, old yacht port and a further bedroom and living room.
The photos and video say so much more than words can but there are two bedrooms on the main floor. There is an opportunity to increase by renovating the vehicle garage which is perfect for a room and en-suite facilities and to utiise the "yacht" port which is now divided by a mezzanine floor so this could be a bedroom and storage below or two bedrooms.
If these changes were made there could be 4 full size bedrooms on this floor alone, with the apartment downstairs having two bedrooms and being fully self contained with bathrooms and kitchen and patio.
There is over half an acre of land with this house and the house itself is over 4000sq ft of stunning property with amazing views. If you like the look of this property I suggest acting at haste as I sincerely believe this one will not be available for any length of time.
