Sotheby's International Realty - Westmoreland, 04

The Calijandra Estate features beautiful uninterrupted views along the West Coast with its azure sea and clear blue skies. This substantial property is approached along a majestic avenue of royal palms. Sand Dollar presents over 8000 sq. ft. of pure style and luxury and is designed by London based architect Alister Downie (Harper Downie) and built by Guy Caunter Berridge, an English bespoke property developer who has made Barbados his home since 2004. The open plan design is both spacious and practical, featuring five en-suite bedrooms, stunning kitchen, dining pavilion, numerous courtyards and balconies, a media room, study, central living pavilion, provision for a gymnasium, garage and 15m infinity pool – all complimented by and nestled within over 0.5 acres of indigenous landscaping, an integral aspect to the architectural design of the property. Additionally there is a spacious 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom guest apartment at garden level which provides the owner a degree of privacy. No time, expense or attention to detail has been spared in creating this breathtaking home. Total luxury comes as standard without the ongoing high running costs often associated with second homes in the Caribbean. Energy saving measures includes passive ventilation techniques to encourage airflow and reduce power consumption, large overhanging balconies to reduce solar heat gain and low energy fixtures and fittings. The finest materials, craftsmanship, design and logic have created what is undoubtedly one of the island’s premier residences.
