3 Old Queens Fort Porters St James
This beautiful 5 bed room home sits on half an acre in possibly the most sought after location Barbados.
A half hour drive to Grantley Adams International airport. 2 Minutes drive to Holetown which is the center of touristic Barbados. There you can find high end restaurants such as The Tides as well as all manner of smaller restaurants and eateries, Thai food at Lemongrass, Italian at Peppenero, a local flavour at the Rum Stop to name but some of the possible offerings in Limegrove Entertainment Center.
Shopping is well taken care of with groceries available at Massy as well as high end Bistros in the immediate area. Clothes and jewellery at Polo, Michael Kors and other amazing high end boutiques. Diamonds international offer a vast range of high end jewellery, watches and accessories.
There is a cinema, spa, children’s play park and a 24 hr gym.
Close by you have Sandy Lane Golf and Royal Westmoreland Golf courses, both of the highest quality and design.
Waterporsts are everywhere along the coast but taking the direct beach access at the end of the private road of Old Queens Fort and turning south along the beach one raches Colony Club Hotel and Coral Reef Hotel and nestled between the two is a water sports center offering jet skis to sailing boats, diving to water skiing.
Driving into Old Queens Fort you are immediately impacted by the tall palms that lead you down the road. One can not miss the luscious , mature trees and gardens that mottle the grounds as the sun cracks through the foliage.
All the homes in this road can be considered spectacular, all a good size, all sit on half an acre or more. The road is abutted by Queens Fort, a similar road in layout and Bachelor Hall, a stunning beach front home with vast land.
The house itself is an Ian Morrison design. Ian was THE architect a few years back and he embraced mother nature. That could not be demonstrated any better than at this house.
The walls are soft touch, Wallaba poles run through the home giving the house a flow and feel of living under one roof, one covered terrace.
The living area is partitioned but not divided as such. Even the walls are designed in a way to not reach the ceilings to allow air flow as was the Barbadian way of building pre air conditioning.
The house is designed to feel like one is living in a covered open terrace and it certainly achieves that. The bedrooms are similar but all have their own detail and the main bedroom and main bathroom are especially warm and inviting.
The eastern side of the property is aimed more at one’s guests with a full bathroom for the use of visiting guests and those using the pool. There are two more bedrooms here a little smaller but designed in the same impeccable way.
Old Queens Fort is one of the most interesting and beautiful homes on the island and should be viewed at haste.
