Located 10 mins from Holetown, in one of the most desirable areas of the gorgeous West Coast, within walking distance of the famous Mullins Beach, this charming villa offers 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
Built in 1969, in its previous life the property was residence to both a prominent medical practitioner and then a diplomat. It has been completely renovated and extended, with a new dining/entertaining pavilion and pool. Offering a blend of the modern and traditional, the villa is spacious with excellent living, dining and entertainment areas.
On entering the home, you are drawn to the informal living area, which opens out to the beautiful gardens with many tropical fruit and palm trees, outdoor dining area and large pool. The main home boasts automatic shutters which open onto the lovely garden and pool area – a fantastic concept and excellent security. There are several formal and informal dining and living areas in the home, all very warm and inviting spaces. All the main living, dining rooms, landings, kitchen and utility area have ceiling fans, including the dining/pool pavilion.
All 4 bedrooms are on the southern side of the house, with three of the four rooms opening on to a deck overlooking and leading onto the pool area.
