Harding’s International Realty offers for sale “The Ridge” in St Peter, Barbados.

The Ridge was designed by world renowned architect and interior designer, Mr. Peter Inston. Widely acknowledged as one of the iconic leaders in his field, Mr. Inston’s prestigious portfolio includes the Ritz Carlton, Champneys, Savoy Hotel in London, Taymouth Castle in Scotland, Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire, Gleneagles in Scotland, The Emir of Qatar’s palace, as well as designing and building the Irish and Barbados homes of Lord of the Dance star Michael Flatley.

The stunning and unique nature of the Ridge meant it took nearly five years to complete. No expense was spared in its sensational construction with many of the features imported from around the world including all the Italian marble, the centerpiece fountain as well as the courtyard statues. Such attention to details meant even an international artist was flown in from the UK to paint the spectacular dome as you enter the main house.

This palatial property sits on 2.68 acres of land and offers 11 bedrooms; there are 5 in the main house, 4 in the charming “chattel house” and 2 in the cottage. The Ridge is the ideal estate for entertaining with fabulous outdoor spaces to suit any occasion. It is complete with a phenomenal temperature-controlled wine room, cinema, spa, hairdressers, gym, and tennis court. The total floor area is circa 19,000 square feet.

The Ridge can be linked to various properties with beach access offering the best of luxury country and beachfront living.

The treasure trove of contents within the property has been skillfully selected over the past decade with many of the special and unique items having a strong connection to the Caribbean. Highlights include exceptionally rare film memorabilia such as Charlie Chaplin’s personal cane and a very rare vintage film poster collection, including an original for one of the few Hollywood movies to be shot in Barbados, Island in the Sun (1957) starring Harry Belafonte and Joan Collins. There are exceptionally rare furniture pieces by designers Carlo Bugatti and Viscount Linley, as well as incredibly scarce sketches from artist and designer Oliver Messel, who designed many of Barbados’ most illustrious houses. Alongside are works by celebrity photographer Terry O’Neill and the largest known Caribbean painting collection of English playwright Noel Coward, accompanied by works from world famous Russian-born French artist, Erte, who visited Barbados many times during his distinguished career.

There is even a special painting signed and created by Lord of the Dance star Michael Flatley who placed paint on his tap shoes and danced on the canvas!

There are many other priceless pieces and collections that were painstakingly and lovingly put together over many years to make The Ridge the truly magnificent home that it is.


Barbados is the number 1 destination in the Caribbean for UK residents, with daily direct flights bringing over 1 million visits annually!

The Caribbean island offers sunshine everyday, all year round, with constant trade winds offering cool breezes to keep the temperature around 28C during the day and around 23C at night. This is one of the many reasons we, at Harding’s International enjoy being on the island in any given month through the year.

December to May in Barbados are mainly the driest of months, while afternoon rain showers fall during the months of June to November. Although the rain can sometimes be a heavy tropical rain storm, these are often welcome to cool down from the warming sun and nearly always only last up to 30 minutes.

Whether you’re a welcomed customer, client or friend of Harding’s International, a well-loved tourist, or a laid back, loyal local – there really is something for everyone on the idyllic island of Barbados. Rolling lush hills, flourishing botanical gardens, colonial plantation homes, dramatic cliff lined coasts, world-class restaurants, spectacular flat, calm beaches and a varied cultural calendar in which fish festivals and reggae carnivals sit alongside sailing, cricket and polo tournaments.
