Located in a peaceful, well-established cul-de-sac just a few minutes’ drive away from Gibbs Beach, one of the most popular beaches on the west coast of Barbados.
Mariposa is an immaculately maintained home built to a high standard, from its granite counter tops to its well thought out open plan layout and amazing potential already in place.
This home was built with the best of Caribbean outdoor living in mind allowing the trade winds and sunlight to flow through the home within its many bright and cozy entertaining spaces to choose from.
The infinity edge pool also has many areas to entertain or relax in, whether it be reading a book under the trees, afternoon tea in the garden, sunbathing on the deck and cooling down under the outdoor shower or cocktails and grilling with friends and family at either of the BBQ al fresco dining areas under both pergolas, facing east for country views and west for sea views depending on the time of day and the view you fancy.
When you aren’t entertaining, the master suite is truly a sanctuary with its spa-like en-suite complete with bidet, enclosed toilet, jacuzzi bathtub, double vanity and walk in closet. The two other guest bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom and there is a powder room for visiting guests off the main entrance.
Mariposa has been purpose built with opportunities for expansion, the plot itself has already been subdivided into two plots, the house sits on the main lot of 15,855 square feet with an opportunity to build beneath the pool deck for a separate gully/valley view apartment facing east or up another level through its finished bonus room above the wide foyer which is designed to accommodate stairs should one want to build on another level or use the existing finished 15’ x 18’ crow’s nest accessed by a pull down stairwell as a home office, gym, art/craft room or fourth bedroom.
As an optional extra to the house as advertised, the second lot is 4,209 square feet located in front of the house facing west which has planning approval for a cottage as another separate rental opportunity for accommodation, media room, home office or whatever suits your needs. The home is also eco-friendly with its large non-potable rain catchment tank under the west facing pergola and is set up to be solar powered.
Simply put, Mariposa is an amazing property and a must see, as it represents an excellent value proposition with ample potential.
