Queens Fort 5 is truly special. This serene 5-bedroom property has been a passion project for one of Barbados’ most well-known designers, Sophie Domenge, as she re-imagined and carefully redesigned this home with her partners’ blessing. Sophie chose one of the island’s premier contractors to assist her with this transformation to ensure the very best in finishes and workmanship. She worked alongside local artisans to design and install completely bespoke interiors, from perfectly sized furnishings to the finest decorations, each, thoughtfully placed, to enhance the experience of home.
Designed as a circle with entertainment and enjoyment spaces at its heart, the project’s main home stretches beside the pool deck allowing the rooms to benefit from beautiful views and ample natural light. Stand out features include 3 beautiful en-suite bedrooms including a playfully decorated kids’ bedroom, rain showers which open to the sky and feature delicate live orchids, the ”hidden” office and television lounge spaces, and a welcome lounge decorated in soft sand tones which flows onto the dining terrace.
The home’s main kitchen features integrated stainless steel appliances and carefully planned storage and work spaces and is complemented by a lounge with bar and barbeque area shaded by the poolside gazebo. The gym sits across the pool, with durable wood toned floors, standing mirrors and large framed glass windows overlooking the tropical gardens.
Double en suite bedrooms, each with a dedicated private terrace, flank a quaint country style kitchen in the guest cottage. The perfect spot for guests to enjoy their own space.
The property’s sought after and unique Queens Fort community location, on the island’s famed west coast, encourages early morning, and ”any time” ocean swims, after meandering down the private beach path close by. The beach access opens to a gorgeous stretch of beach which has recently been enhanced and protected and invites long strolls along the ocean’s edge.
As the sun sets, the thoughtful design beckons guests to return to Queens Fort 5 and relax around the carefully crafted fire pit in the private garden, sparkling with soft fairy lights, and inviting chatter and laughter.
Queens Fort 5 is turnkey with it’s bespoke design and immaculate finishes inviting a new owner to simply arrive and enjoy this truly special property.
