$55 Million Barbados estate sets price record
February 28, 2014 - Saint Peter
A Barbados estate has listed for $55 million, the highest-ever asking price on the open market for the Caribbean island, according to listing agent Paul B. Altman of Barbados-based Altman Real Estate, an associate of Savills.
If it sells for that price, the 2½-acre waterfront estate will set a record for the most expensive home sale in Barbados, Mr. Altman said.
Another home located about a mile from this property sold for just under $50 million last year, he said.
Located in the parish of Saint Peter on the west coast of Barbados, the house overlooks Gibbes Beach, one of the better-known beaches on the island.
The estate has a roughly 17,000-square-foot, six-bedroom main house, a pool, a pool house with a gym and an octagonal gazebo overlooking the beach. All the home's bedrooms have balconies and views of the Caribbean Sea.
The grounds also have mature trees and flowers; the owners "took great pride in their garden," Mr. Altman said.
