Sitting on a ridge above the West coast of Barbados with dramatic views out to the ocean, Atelier House is a stunning Caribbean retreat.

Designed by architect Alistair Downie, in close collaboration with the owners, the property was completed in 2012. It is quite unique in Barbados, eschewing the prevailing executive-style home for something more akin to Brazilian Tropical Modernism.

The accommodation comprises four bedrooms with beds for eight people. There are three bathrooms, an outdoor shower and a service kitchen and utility room. The dramatic double-height living space and a wall of glass maximise the stunning views of the extensive outdoor terraces and pool, and further beyond across a protected, mahogany-tree-filled gully to the Caribbean sea.

Externally, the property is surrounded by gardens that have been planted with indigenous species of palms, lilies, bougainvillea and many flowering shrubs. In addition to the pool and terraces, there is a large roof terrace and mezzanine study area with stunning views. Measuring 1/2 acre, the garden is accessed via a large and secure gate and has parking for several cars.

St James is widely considered as the jewel in the crown of Barbados, with unmatched white sandy beaches, high-end hotels and food that ranges from world-class restaurants to makeshift food stalls serving delicious local fare.

Other attractions and local activities include watersports, horse riding, the farmers' market at Holders, golf at Sandy Lane and Westmoreland, gully walks and stunning beaches.
