Saban cottages are a wonderful blend of “Heidi” meets the Caribbean mixing alpine attitude with traditional gingerbread fretwork.
Residential Real Estate
Most Saban cottages are white wood or stucco trimmed out with lovely green or red shutters topped off with red roofs. Once in a special while, the cottage is built of indigenous, and stunningly attractive, grey volcanic rock. These are the most fabulous and unique of the all Saban cottages and rather rare. From a practical point of view, they are very low maintenance. From a style point of view, they are just simply gorgeous. They truly deliver Old World Caribbean living. The soft grey rock is a perfect backdrop for the traditional Saban vernacular.
This charming two bedroom stone cottage, located in Upper Hell’s Gate, has it all. The red roof, wonderful white fretwork and beautifully appointed Brazilian walnut doors and shutters add lots of style. Built in 1987, the cottage is in immaculate, move in condition. It’s a perfect turn key home. You needn’t lift a finger. Furnishings include crystal chandeliers, antiques, paintings, art work, fine china and even a car to navigate “The Road”! The interior also features a fully functional stone hearth.
Large, private tiled terraces afford stunning views. The east facing terrace has unobstructed views of all the easterly islands. The north facing terrace is nestled in a lush tropical garden. All the lawn and terrace furniture is included in the sale. Fabulous extras include two large storage units plus an attached storage/garden room to keep everything organized and tidy. The new roof was installed in 2003. The house has hurricane shutters and a 20,000 gallon cistern capacity. The house sits on 336 sq/meters.
Don’t postpone the joy of living the Old World Caribbean lifestyle.
