The intimate enclave’s eight villas, which are sized from 8,000 to 9,500 square feet, feature air-conditioning and exquisite European details such as Bufalini Marmi Italian marble and white pewter and iron balustrades by Les Ateliers Saint-Jacques, the French firm responsible for renovations to the Palace of Versailles. Interiors have been plastered by E.G. Deco of Monaco and painted in natural pigments by French artisans. Locally sourced coral rock and expansive verandas nod to the island’s tropical colonial heritage. Barbados’s vibrant history is alive and well at One Sandy Lane.

Owners may customize design and decor for layouts with full kitchens, interior and exterior living areas, and five bedrooms including a master suite and four guestrooms. Each suite has a safe and full bath whose mirrors hold smart TVs.

The finest local materials combined with the commissioning of skilled craftsmen from Europe, it stands to reason that that the property’s elegant architecture and noble construction are extremely rare for the region. It’s the perfect balance of fine living and a laid-back lifestyle in a naturally beautiful setting.

The limited number of villas add to the desire to reside here. High-profile owners also can rest assured that they and their families are protected through closed-circuit cameras and biometric fingerprint technology.

One Sandy Lane is the jewel of Barbados.
