As guests of the Fustic House Private Estate Barbados, you are treated to a magnificent stately home, which exudes a wonderful traditional charm. Built in the early 18th century, this 11-acre property is set in the northern parish of St Lucy and was re-designed in the 1970’s by celebrated English theatrical designer Oliver Messel. This designer’s signature style was in making indoor and outdoor spaces seamlessly flow together – thereby creating a comfortable and elegant coral-stone family home of exceptional beauty. Fustic House is the ideal getaway for large families or groups and simply offers the finest in Caribbean island living.
The extensive property is perched on a coral ridge with panoramic views of the Caribbean coastline. You immediately feel at one with nature here as you are surrounded by a park of mahogany trees and mature, lush gardens designed by Todd Langstaffe-Gowan, landscape designer for the Royal Palace of Hampton Court. The impeccably kept grounds, complete with koi-filled lotus lake, provide a peaceful oasis to stroll or relax.
There are seven luxury suites in four separate wings, all equipped with similar amenities and spaced far enough apart to give optimum privacy. There are two suites in the Great House; Two in the Plantation Wing; two in the Messel Wing and one in the Pavilion Wing. There is a huge reception room equipped with high-tech home cinema: 60″ plasma, high definition television, Blu Ray DVD and a Martin Logan electrostatic speaker sound system. This area is surrounded by wrap-around purple heart wood terracing – with a mahogany tree growing through the west deck
The natural lagoon-shaped pool designed by Messel, is fed by ionised water –which reduces the need for chlorine thus giving the experience of swimming in a natural spring. At night it is beautifully lit. Soak up the sun by the pool, on the expansive deck, which is built over the ravine within the trees – much like a giant tree house. Imagine yourself and loved ones enjoying a sundowner with the scenic view as your backdrop, before a sumptuous dinner prepared by professional chef Andy Taylor.
