Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Saint James - Atelier House Barbados

This magnificent home suits those who appreciate contemporary design and style.

Atelier House is a luxury contemporary villa with stunning architecture and breathtaking views. It sits on beautiful ridge half a mile from the famous beaches of Barbados' platinum coast, with sunset views out across the Caribbean. It has been designed to maximize the views from this beautiful location.

The limestone terrace and infinity pool also overlooks a protected gully filled with ancient Mahogany and Flamboyant trees, where Green Monkeys regularly ramble.

The house presents a unique offer on Barbados with stunning contemporary design, modern furniture and materials throughout and contemporary art adorning the walls.

The layout is designed to maximize the views from the plot so the shape of the building follows the lines of the boundary. We separated day/living space from night/sleeping space for reasons of practicality — i.e. when the kids are in bed the adults can play without disturbing them!

The interiors use a simple palette of limestone and white painted walls to provide unity in all spaces and allow carefully chosen pieces of art and furniture some space to breathe.

The dimensions of openings, walkways and rooms is intended to provide comfortable mobility such that a guest should never feel pinched for space.”

The gardens are planted with indigenous shrubs, trees and palms and the plot measures half an acre. Amanda and I selected all the plants and put a lot of them in ground ourselves!

The house has a large infinity pool measuring 9x5 meters and sun loungers dotted around it. It has outdoor eating, lounging and cooking space and a roof terrace linking the mezzanine and master bedroom suite

The house suits those that appreciate great design and contemporary architecture and can accommodate 2 families with 2-4 children.

Atelier House comes with a house keeper and a cook can be arranged by request.

About Sean OHalloran

Amanda and I are involved in the creative industries in the UK. We work in digital media, furniture, fine art and interiors,

W designed and built Atelier House between 2010 and 2012 on a virgin piece of land overlooking a stunning mahogany wood with beautiful views to the sea. We always wanted to build a house from scratch and, once we saw this plot, knew it had to be here.

Sean OHalloran purchased this villa in 2010

Why Sean OHalloran chose Barbados

Atelier House is unique on Barbados. It brings a touch of relaxed contemporary chic to an island that sometimes displays a bit of faded glory.

Atelier has been a labour of love for Amanda and I. Together, we shaped the house we wanted to live in ourselves. She selected all the interior materials, finishes and furniture and designed all the stonework in the kitchens and bathrooms. In so doing, we seem to have created a landmark building for Barbados.

Visitors are genuinely amazed at the quality of space, light, finish and of course the views. Seeing people really positively affected by the building, by something that we’ve created, is a very special feeling.

Atelier is best enjoyed as you find it. Do as much or as little as you wish. Hang around the house, swim in the pool, watch the wind in the trees and the boats bobbing by down below.

Stock up with freshly caught fish and salad from the stall down the road and fire up the barbecue for a simple, healthy lunch. Or hire in a chef for a special night — we can arrange this. Most of all, bring friends. Or make them locally. It’s a house that suits friends.

What makes this villa unique

The west coast of Barbados has long been highly prized for stunning white beaches, warm lapping waters and glorious sunsets. Just a few hundred meters in from the shoreline the land rises steeply in a series of ridges. Up on these ridges the breeze is cool and the views are magnified.
