Villa | 8 bedrooms | sleeps 16

<p>Bellevue is a spectacular, newly remodeled plantation estate home. The house sits in secluded woods at the end of a modest, unmarked road, a real surprise for those who chance on it unexpectedly. The imposing gates, the many mature trees and sweeping lawns tell you that something special lies beyond.</p>

<p>On a ridge overlooking a gully, amidst 3 acres of land, the house is now surrounded by tall trees, but must have once had a splendid view over Belle Plantation spread out below, hence the name, Bellevue. The property was known as Anton Hall in the late 18th century and is believed to have been built between 1735 and 1750. Owners over the centuries reflect the classic Barbadian plantation names: Dowdings, Connells &amp; Collymores.</p>

<p>The last owner was Dr. Arno Trieloff who recently sold it to the present owners, who have done a fabulous job of modernizing and providing every luxury, while keeping the traditional Barbadian style. The original house would have been the square Georgian block so common throughout the British Colonial islands however, the term 'Caribbean Georgian' was coined to describe the many delightful, tropical touches to this style that evolved in the West Indies; the use of limestone, adding of verandahs and galleries, raising the house over a full basement, imposing exterior stairs, push-out windows and jalousies shutters; all of which can be seen at Bellevue.</p>

<p>This house is a great property to be used for events such as weddings, incentive groups and retreats, as there are large entertainment rooms, spacious grounds with large swimming pool and bar area. Bellevue is located just 10mins from Bridgetown &amp; south coast beaches and has a lovely view across the Bridgetown Harbour. As you enter the grounds, you are immediately struck by the grandeur and grace of yesteryear, with a sweeping dual stairway leading to the large, wraparound verandah on the second level, from where guests can take advantage of the spectacular view of the Bridgetown Harbour and countryside and also watch the magnificent sunset while sipping cocktails. The entrance hall and formal living area with polished wooden floors and several antique pieces is located on the main level of the property.</p>

<p>The master suite and 3 guest suites are also on this level. They are all air-conditioned and 3 open onto balconies. On the lower level are 2 further guest suites, a large family room, featuring a mosaic design of the island of Barbados and a study. There are two large dining tables that are great for elegant dining or holding board meetings. The formal dining room opens on to the dining terrace, unusual bar, casual eating and lounging patio. This patio looks out to the large pool and deck, surrounded by a lush garden and mature trees.</p>
