A once in a lifetime opportunity has emerged to purchase a spectacular beachfront property in Barbados.
Jane?s Harbour, a beautiful six-bedroom home with uninterrupted sea views and two acres of landscaped gardens, is located on Sandy Lane next to the famous Sandy Lane hotel.
The property was previously owned by the late Robert Sangster, one of the most successful racehorse owners and breeders of his generation, who passed away last year.
Mr Sangster?s trustees have now decided to sell: ?For many years Jane?s Harbour has been a private home which has provided a great deal of happiness to the Sangster family and their many friends. The location of the property is second to none and we are sure that it will continue to provide great pleasure to a new owner,? said a spokesman for the trustees.
Situated just five miles from Bridgetown, the island?s capital, and half an hour?s drive from Grantley Adams International Airport, Jane?s Harbour has undergone extensive renovation in recent years.
The house is flanked by two detached wings, and is built around a swimming pool. The wings provide additional bedrooms and reception rooms, while the main building houses a large, airy salon which opens onto a terrace, an elegant formal drawing room, a bar room, the master bedroom and two further bedrooms.
Within the grounds there are two further cottages providing additional accommodation, one of which is currently occupied by the housekeeper.
Charles Weston-Baker, Director of International Sales at Savills, the estate agents handling the sale, said: ?Barbados is certainly the leading destination for luxury properties in the Caribbean, if not worldwide. It is rumoured that there are 18 billionaires owning beachfront property within six miles of Sandy Lane. We expect considerable interest in this property from individuals of standing as well as from potential developers.?
