BARBADOS - real estate for rent

Chimborazo



Enjoy a holiday of unique, timeless elegance in the seclusion of this gracious 250 year old, coral-stone plantation house. Set in 4 acres of lush tropical gardens in a commanding position high on the hills of Barbados, this three bedroom house is arguably on the highest point of the island and offers magnificent views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.
Lovingly restored original polished wood floors, lofty ceilings, antique furniture, paintings, and tall shuttered windows, all express the spacious charm of another age.

Gourmet Dining

Your stay at Chimborazo can be enhanced by enjoying the culinary delights of our own Master Chef who has worked exclusively in many international private homes tantalising the rich and famous with her Asian, European and Caribbean specialties. She will pamper you and look after all your needs including shopping and catering to any special diets. There is an organic vegetable garden and free range eggs. Chimborazo is the perfect setting for entertaining friends or just relaxing for a family meal.
The Pool

Chimborazo House boasts the most unique designer pool on the island - built out over the orchard with views of the Caribbean horizon, the water appears to flow over the outer edge and into the trees. Secluded, but sunny the large sun deck boasts a barbecue, dining area and sun chairs. The pool is heated when required.
The House

Chimborazo measures 3000 sq. ft. and is typical of the plantation houses of the 18th century with wide indoor galleries enclosing large formal reception rooms. The music salon boasts a grand piano and a midi hi-fi which is also wired to speakers in both the kitchen and the master bedroom.
The 48 foot long drawing room has a large television offering satellite TV and there is a video library. The owner's collection of objets d'art, acquired over many years of overseas travel, add an air of stylish sophistication to the decor.
Sunny, yet cool, the north gallery, with its crystal chandeliers, is ideal for the taking of afternoon tea overlooking the wild east coast and the lawn.

The professionally equipped kitchen has antique Mexican furniture and delightful ceramics. There is a dishwasher, a fridge/freezer with an automatic ice maker, a cappuccino coffee maker and a breadmaker for hot fresh bread in the morning.
The kitchen opens out on to a completely secluded teakwood deck on the edge of a valley giving the impression of being suspended high in the trees through which the local monkeys gambol. Sunbathing in utter privacy, dozing in the hammock, or dining under the stars - this deck is the owner's favorite spot. The south-west master bedroom, styled in opulent oriental luxury, has a large king size bed and en suite bathroom. The blue bedroom can be either twin or king size and features large casement windows facing east and south. It also has en suite facilities. The East bedroom has a double bed and its own bathroom and extra beds or a crib may be added if needed.

Property Viewing

 
The Garden

The N terrace, with its pond and fountain, runs the length of the house and overlooks a lawn and mature garden which has spectacular vistas in all directions and is dominated by a 200 year old Sago Palm with circular fan-like branches which filter the evening sun. The garden is abundant with flowering plants and shrubs and is attractively lit at night.
The orchard to the South of the house offers seasonal fruits such as Avocado, Mango, Cherries, Pawpaw, Banana, Guava, and Breadfruit plus a well stocked herb garden.

Location

Situated in the Scotland District of St Joseph, the house is just 15 minutes from the popular West Coast Beaches of Barbados or 10 minutes from the ruggedly scenic East Coast with its deserted beaches.
It is 15 minutes from Bridgetown and a half hour drive from the Airport.

Staffing

Included in the quoted price, is a daily maid and a local cook.
A car with driver, and the gourmet chef are negotiable according to how often they are required.
