Villa overview - owner's description

Illusion is a majestic home finessed with architectural panache and glamour within the prestigious gated community at Sugar Hill on the west coast of Barbados. So gracefully executed, it blends classical colonial design with world-class comforts.

Designed to resemble the Sandy Lane hotel, this home's facade is a strikingly symmetrical design finished with ornately curved external stair cases, timeless arched windows and pillared verandas. Indoor and outdoor living blend seamlessly, with a chic dining porch leading down to the glistening pool framed with terrace and loungers, to the upper balcony deck, where guests can wander out for morning coffee. The terrace is punctuated with two stunning pavilions, for al fresco dining and cooking.

Entering this enclave, guests will have the impression of arriving at a secluded, tropical idyll of flawless design, pristine lawns and charismatic living spaces, framed by an explosion of Caribbean colour - swaying palms, mahogany trees, as well as fragrant papaya and coconut trees.

There is an Oriental tone to the sedate and tranquil gardens, with the serene pond dotted with water lilies and trickling fountain, whilst the sea is just moments away.

The facilities are peerless, with discreet on-hand staff, a putting green, communal gym and access to tennis courts, guests may find they barely wish to leave this self contained oasis. The interiors are artfully finished with verve and finesse - marble flooring, a dazzling palette of whites off-set by salmon pinks, regal touches and grand piano fuse to create a space that is ornate, yet timelessly chic.

From the drawing room guests can look beyond the billowing curtains and arched windows onto the luscious gardens, and from the magnificent first-floor master suite, decked in accents of soft mauve, complete with its own sizeable dressing room. Guests can enjoy sparkling sea views from the bed. There are four bedrooms, each with a bathroom, balcony, air-conditioning and safe.

The dining room is a fabulous space for entertaining, with solid timber dining set beneath the art-piece chandelier, or for informal dining, the wicker chairs and outdoor lounges will hit the right note, perhaps for a rum cocktail as the sun softens in the evening. The pavilions are decked out with Bose surround sound, making for a rocking pool party set-up!

From arriving at its rather dignified entrance with antique carriage lights, to wandering among the banana trees in the cooling trade winds, this enclosed world of quality and style will enrapture guests for a next-level holiday experience.

No detail is left under-thought at Illusion, no comfort left untended, this home delights and intrigues with its natural ease and charm - a little slice of magic!

Illusion is set on the exclusive “platinum coast,” the glittering West coast of Barbados which is known for its exclusive developments, fine sandy beaches with turquoise waters and colourful, historical towns.

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 (6.6 km) and Holetown (3.5 km) both offer abundant local flavour.

Holetown will offer 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 didn't 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 island's capital, Bridgetown (14.6 km distance) 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.
