Sunwatch – Sugar Hill Resort, St. James, Barbados
Set in two acres of beautifully landscaped gardens on a ridge directly overlooking the Caribbean Sea, this spectacular home, Sunwatch, is one of the finest on the exclusive Sugar Hill Resort Community. Sympathetically designed by the renowned local architects Gillespie and Steel, utilising the natural features of the land contours and the cooling tradewinds, this spacious single storey villa offers magnificent, panoramic, unobstructed views of the beautiful west coast.
From the drive one enters the house over a wooden bridge crossing a lily pond set in a quiet garden-courtyard to be greeted by the breathtaking view. The central part of the house is the main living area, with airy double height vaulted ceiling, which opens out onto an expansive covered terrace. Off the living area is the bedroom wing to one side and the bar servery, kitchen and the picturesque dining terrace to the other.
