Harding’s International ™ are pleased to offer for sale “Highpark House” at Prior Park in Saint James Barbados.
Highpark House is a stunning 6-bedroom private home nestled within a well-manicured, 1-acre lot on a quiet cul-de-sac in Prior Park, St. James. The current owners have extended and completely modernised the property while maintaining much of its original character. The property is being offered for sale unfurnished, however the owners are open to selling some of the pieces that make this home so special. High Park House offers a unique opportunity to own a fully renovated young Barbadian plantation family home.
This is only the second time the property has come on the market in circa 60 years since the Gill family built it to withstand hurricanes, shortly after Janet had left her mark in 1955. They picked the ideal elevated location to maximise the sea views and the breeze and kept the house central to its expansive and private plot.
The main floor of the property has a wonderful open plan living and dining room that flows beautifully through to the breakfast bar and large, custom built, contemporary kitchen, with views over the West Coast of Barbados to the sea beyond. Four of the six bedrooms are located on the main floor, including the master suite which has wonderful sea views and an expansive open-air walk-in closet that leads to the large bathroom with both shower and soaking tub. Two of the other bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and dressing areas. The fourth bedroom is beautifully designed with custom-built fitted bunk beds, a bookcase & storage, ideal for siblings to share. The guest bathroom across the hall is a vintage design utilising some of the original fittings of house.
Downstairs, there are two further bedrooms with garden views and large low windows that allow for a constant cool breeze, and which share a spacious modern bathroom. There is a fully equipped laundry room overlooking the kitchen/ fruit garden with a large storage cupboard opposite. The triple aspect living room provides the best of indoor/outdoor living as it opens to the covered patio where you have a formal dining area and full wet bar, all overlooking the private pool and pool deck.
Outside there is access to storage rooms and a large cellar which may has great potential for conversion to additional living areas or even a wine cellar. The garden has an abundance of mature trees and includes the pool area, a kitchen garden, the play & adventure area, and a formal front lawn excellent for entertaining or enjoying a game of Croquet.
Highpark House has fantastic character. Whether it is the exquisite antiques or our favourite; the guests’ entrance gate which is over 100 years old and salvaged from the Waterfront Café in Bridgetown; or the wood floors salvaged from the plantation home of the original builder, there are various little bits of Barbadian history throughout.
With its ideal location in upper St James, Highpark House is minutes away from all the most popular amenities in Barbados and the perfect place for you to call home.
