Oistins, Christ Church, Barbados
This charming Barbadian-styled home has been cleverly subdivided into two, separate, 2-bedroom units (sharing a party wall), each with their own entrance, parking, and a separate garage. The north section of the home was originally built in the 1800's with the south section added on in the 1950's. In 2008, the home was completely renovated and the only remaining parts of the original home are the beautiful thick coral stone walls and the solid louvred wooded doors. At the time of the renovation, the home was divided into the north and south sections.
The home sits on lot 1 of 3 spacious lots, which together form a gorgeous front lawn with mature trees spread around the grounds. Located just off the main thoroughfare, Highway U, to the east of Oistins, the property is currently used as a private home with an income, but could be turned into a larger single residence, subdivided into 3 individually owned properties, or converted into a commercial property with its superb location offering great visibility to passing trade.
The house retains much of its original charm with traditional, solid wood louvred doors opening out from the living areas onto the covered patios which in turn open onto the front lawn and the grounds. The wood floors, thick coral stone walls and high ceilings with exposed wooden rafters all come together to represent a traditional, old coral stone style Barbadian home. The property has been cleverly restored and modernized to turn it into two very comfortable modern homes with character.
The garden and grounds are expansive, giving the homes a feeling of openness and space although they both have their own fully enclosed yards. The two-storey south section of the house has its own storage shed.
