Real Estate Tips
Our feature home this month (http://www.christiesrealestate.com/eng/sales/detail/170-l-78516-1512311242482206/fairways-sandy-lane-sj) is located in one of the most exclusive estates in the Caribbean and is definitely one of the most exclusive addresses in Barbados. Sandy Lane Estate is the go-to development on the island and has long remained the most sought-after choice for high net worth individuals looking to invest in the luxury residential real estate market. One of the main reasons for this is that despite the global economic challenges faced by every square foot of real estate between here to The Solomon Islands, Sandy Lane Estate has managed to remain robust throughout these tests and maintain its value and desirability. Owning property within the luxurious estate includes some clear advantages and here are just a few:

  • The estate is owned by the property owners themselves which means there are no ‘third-party’ entities that can dictate the rules or annual fees
  • Owners and guests of owners are granted full access to the Sandy Lane Beach Facility (which includes private showers, toilets, seating areas and staff to make your trip to the beach as comfortable as possible)
  • Access and usage of the exclusive Sandy Lane Property Owners Association Tennis Courts

In some cases, for a select few homes there is also the added benefit of access and ownership of their own private beach cabana which allows owners to enjoy the shaded comforts of being able to relax on one of the best and most exclusive beaches on the island fringed by tall, large, shady trees in the relaxing warmth of the sunshine. Some of the other unspoken benefits are the association and affiliation with a world class, 5-star luxury brand that provides unsurpassed service and excellence synonymous with the estate itself.

Golf

Green Monkey Golf Course

One of the other unique features of our feature home this month is that it sits on the renown ‘Old Nine’, which is a nine hole course and was built along with the famous Sandy Lane Hotel in 1961. There are two other golf courses within the development: The Green Monkey and The Country Club, and these are both 18-hole championship courses that were designed by the well-known golf course designer Tom Fazio. The Green Monkey has been reported as being the one of the most expensive golf courses ever built.
