Footprints, St James, Barbados

By Lauren Hill

In the exclusive St James area of the island’s west coast, this beachfront property combines its proximity to high-end restaurants, boutiques and golf courses with an enviable setting on a pristine strip of white sand, providing direct beach access and uninterrupted ocean views. The modern property was designed by architect Jeremy Gunn with ocean-facing glass doors and the integration of several terraces and balconies. The interiors were designed by Kelly Hoppen, who gave each of the five en suite bedrooms and the living and dining area a contemporary Caribbean feel. As the living space here leads out to the property’s private terrace, garden and swimming pool, the beachfront home is ideal for barefoot living.
