Half Century House is sophisticated home in the Sugar Hill Resort, offering a dazzling facade modelled on the traditional plantation style architecture, finessed with peerless quality and comfort, and plenty of lavish character. Set majestically around a shared pool, framed by swaying palms and tropical plant life, this commanding home is executed with stunning symmetry; colonial style at its finest. Arched windows, decorative balustrades and a formal grander are offset by pillared balcony and veranda, finished with a curved Art-Deco style gable. The interiors are a flawless blend of vivid creams and whites, cool marbles and immaculate styling. Like walking into the pages of a glossy interiors magazine, this home doesnt miss a trick. The gardens feature a central pool, set within a pristine terrace, with a distinctive gazebo styled with a little Oriental flair. This pavilion style building has a Japanese feel, and offers seating for twelve - ideal for rocking pool parties and evening cocktails. When illuminated at night, the setting here is nothing short of magical. A refined, sunken living room is framed with balustraded coral stone steps, the characteristic colonnades and a charming space featuring dazzling whites offset with mustard and crimson upholstery for a regal edge. This opulent home is both grand and home-like; its proportions are stylish, the use of sleek marble and coral add to its airiness, whilst the elegant and civilised tone of colonial dining and reclining is manifested in the solid mahogany furnishings, and ample potential for leisurely meals. Up to twelve guests can be accommodated across six bedrooms, and from these serene abodes guests can enjoy magnificent views across the pool and gardens. Each of the bedrooms offers flawless style and comfort - with the grace of a boutique hotel, top-grade cotton and exposed coral walls set against billowing curtains and chic, restorative accents of dusty pink. The facilities at Half Century House are peerless, with discreet on-hand staff, as well as accessories to a putting green, private gym and tennis courts; guests may find they barely wish to leave this self contained oasis. Half Century House is a dreamy abode, timelessly chic yet unapologetically lavish; no detail is left under-thought - guests will build memories to cherish. #### Features The Villa Half Century House is an inspiring 6-bedroom villa that has fine facilities.

This sumptuous property is located in the Sugar Hill Resort Community where guests have access to a Clubhouse, acclaimed restaurant, two swimming pools, and four championship tennis courts. Tennis stars such as Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniaki have played on these courts! The beach facility, Fairmont Royal Pavilion, is only a five minute drive away, whilst the world class Royal Westmoreland Golf Course is only 1.1 kilometres distance. This is one of the most prestigious corners of the exclusive west coast, whilst being a short distance to local life, trade and traditions. Speightstown and Holetown, both a few kilometres distance, both offer abundant local flavour. Holetown demonstrates a vibrant slice of local Bajan life as well as duty free shopping. The Chattel village is a melting pot of artisans, offering local crafts, art and jewellery. The Chattel houses provide a striking contrast to the colonial residences with their dazzling white coral facades and open verandas; the former are vividly coloured with fancy gables and gingerbread fretwork. The Chattel houses date back to plantation days; the small wooden shacks were designed to be movable, yet this didnt limit their decorative charm; finished in candy pinks and pistachio greens with pretty shutters and sloping roofs. Speightstown is also known as “little Bristol” - this town offers evocative local life, fisherman casting their catch on the jetty, a distinctly nautical feel along with street vendors and eclectic dining options. The islands capital, Bridgetown is known for its British colonial architecture and historical sites blending with colourful shopping, an abundance of sea based activities and UNESCO world heritage status.
