Highpark House is a stunning 6-bedroom private home located in Prior Park, St. James, on a one- acre lot in a quiet cul-de-sac.  This fully renovated Barbadian Plantation family home has been modernised and updated while maintaining much of its original character.

This property was built to withstand hurricanes shortly after Hurricane Janet had left its mark on Barbados in 1955.  The Gills picked an ideal elevated location to maximise sea views and breezes and left the house central to its expansive and private lot.    This is only the second time the property has come on to the market in the c60 years since the Gill family built it.

The main floor provides a spacious open plan living and dining area that flows through to the breakfast bar and large custom-built contemporary kitchen, with views of the West coast and the sea beyond.  Four of the six bedrooms are located on the main level, including the master suite with an expansive open-air walk-in closet that leads to the large bathroom with both shower and tub and boasts sea views.  Two of the other bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms with dressing areas.  The fourth bedroom is beautifully designed, currently with custom built fitted bunk beds, a bookcase and storage.  The guest bathroom across the hall features a vintage design with some of the original fittings of the house.

On the lower level there are two additional bedrooms that share a spacious modern bathroom.  These rooms have garden views and large low windows that allot for a constant cool breeze.

There is a fully equipped laundry room overlooking the kitchen, fruit garden with a large storage cupboard opposite.  The living room provides both indoor and outdoor living as it opens onto the covered patio with a full wet bar, overlooking the private pool and pool deck.

There is access to storage rooms and a large cellar from the outside of the house which has great potential to additional living space or a wine cellar.  The garden is home to many mature trees and includes a kitchen garden, the play and adventure area and a formal front lawn excellent for entertaining or a game of Croquet,

Highpark House features some truly special relics, like the entrance gate which is over 100 years old and the wood floors salvaged from the plantation home of the original builder.  Snippets of Barbadian history!! 

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.

Located 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.
