Villa Description

With its exclusive ridgetop location and panoramic sea views, this spacious 5-bedroom home offers ultimate privacy and tranquillity. Escape from the crowd and avoid recurring communal fees by choosing this freehold, Insta-worthy property surrounded by mature gardens, ample land with planning permission, and wonderful walking trails in all directions.

Sugar Ridge is a unique, much-loved private family home, custom designed and built in 2010 by the current owners. The distinct eco-friendly minimalist design enables comfortable, open-air relaxation – an easy, breezy way of life. Constant tropical breezes keep things cool, with several passive ventilation features including extraordinarily high ceilings and beautiful jalousie shutters, an example of contemporary vernacular architecture.

Throughout there’s a sense of expansiveness and potential. Unusual in this market, Sugar Ridge is not over-developed; there’s plenty of scope to add personal touches and adjust internal layouts. If you relish a small building project – perhaps for rental or visitor accommodation – there’s room and permission for two further houses and a tennis court.

On entering Sugar Ridge, you are immediately struck by the generous space apportioned to the open-plan living and dining area which allows for a seamless flow into other areas of the home and to uninterrupted, breathtaking views of blue skies and the shimmering Caribbean Sea. A fully equipped and outfitted kitchen, enclosed kitchen garden and TV/entertainment/media room are situated to the back of the home with 4 substantial bedrooms positioned on either side of the central living space and a separate 1-bedroom apartment below.

The 2 master suites both include 8 folding doors which open the entire western wall of each bedroom onto the spacious pool deck area, allowing in as much or as little natural light as desired. Along with plenty of space for sun loungers and tanning on the pool deck, there is a covered gazebo for outdoor dining, family gatherings, weekend BBQs, sundowners and a few moments escape from the sun. To work from home, the entire open loft elevation provides a generous home office with commanding views – this space can be enclosed and air conditioned, if required, or converted into another bedroom.

 Development opportunities:

  • Existing 5-bed design allows easy conversion of loft and storage room to create 2 additional bedrooms

  • Potential to expand the loft space over the main living area

  • Opportunity to upgrade the 1-bedroom lower-level apartment

  • Includes two plots of land, each with planning permission for one house

 Sun Group Inc. is on the verge of launching a new Barbadian Lifestyle Centre. Located in the heart of St. Peter, this is one of the largest repurposing projects in Barbados. What was originally Haymans Sugar Factory is now Haymans Market, a destination of retail, dining, offices, apartments, community facilities and cultural venues. An indoor market place, bars, coffee shops, fitness centre and a kids club are some of the features of this innovative new development which is slated to be fully opened this coming March.
