Sustainability and Seclusion

24.10.18

The first phase of Barbados’ newest residential resort development, Beach Houses, is set to be unveiled next spring, offering an exciting new prospect for buyers seeking sustainability and seclusion. The team at The Crane tell Abode2 all about it

A removed, low density development overlooking the quaint Skeete’s Bay Beach and Culpepper Island, Beach Houses by developer Crane Resorts, has been designed to accentuate the property’s exclusive location of the 1% of East Coast that remains outside of Barbados’ National Park.

“We were fortunate to acquire a magnificent site on the island’s East Coast, where land development has been historically restricted,” explains Paul Doyle, Managing Director at Crane Resorts. “The preservation of most of the East Coast as a National Park ensures that this beautiful stretch of coastline will remain untouched forever.”

Inspired by this preservation, Beach Houses features a terraced, single story-design, with freestanding villas spread across a gently sloping 50-acre hillside. Each villa sits on approximately 1/5 of an acre of land commanding breathtaking ocean views.

“We’ve successfully created harmony between the design of the development and the natural environment,” comments Shawn Archer, Design Manager. “For example, landscape displacement is virtually unnoticeable as each building’s footprint has been thoughtfully moved to the roofs, revealing clear sightlines as the development recedes from view.”

But more than just aesthetically pleasing, these ‘green roofs’ mitigate the buildings’ heating loads, reducing A/C and power consumption. Similarly, each generously scaled two, three and four-bedroom villa features beautifully appointed open-plan spaces and floor-to-ceiling glass windows, which simultaneously allow for natural cross-ventilation and reduce the need for artificial light during the day, while revealing 180° ocean views.

Other sustainable measures include the use of LED lighting throughout, water-efficient kitchen and bathroom fixtures as well as rainwater collection and the treatment of waste-water for irrigation use.

Ownership at Beach Houses offers a sustainable and secluded home-away-from-home tailored to your lifestyle. Residential and Fractional owners both receive unprecedented benefits, including developer-managed rental options, turn-key services and all the amenities and services of a world-class resort.

Phase one of Beach Houses currently under development and is expected to open in spring 2019. Fractional Ownership prices start at US$180,000 (four weeks); Residential Ownership prices range from US$1.9 - US$2.9M.
