Located within the prestigious Sandy Lane Estate is the luxurious property known as Olivewood. Olivewood enjoys a private ridge front location affording spectacular views overlooking the golf course and out to the Caribbean Sea.
The property occupies a double lot comprising almost 3 acres of land and was designed by Michael Gomes with a completion date of 2004. The architectural style is Classical Barbadian presenting a unique marriage of two vernacular styles of architecture; the Barbadian Plantation House as seen in the formal solid structures, wrap-around verandahs, plantation shutters and classical detailing as well as the indigenous Chattel House reflected in the use of the timber gingerbread facia boards, turned timber posts and decorative brackets.
Olivewood features large open spaces while affording maximum privacy. Balinese design principals influenced the layout with a collection of connected pavilions and intertwined garden courtyards set around a swimming pool with garden water features. Beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea, golf course and gardens as well as the natural cross ventilation is maximized due to the perfectly positioned pavilions.
Five pavilions make up the main house. The first is the bedroom building which features four rooms including the mesmerizing master suite which occupies the entire upper level. Other pavilions include the family room, garden entrance foyer, the living room & main verandah building, the dining room building and the breakfast/service building.
The dining pavilion is a unique space designed to look like a ruin. Covered breezeways connect it to the adjacent service pavilion and main verandah/living room pavilion. Constructed using the reclaimed coral stone from a demolished sugar factory, its oversized space with rugged window and doorway openings, natural coral stone walls with broken away areas allowing the garden in and high, exposed timber rood structure with crystal chandeliers all work together to create a magical setting for lunch or dinner.
In addition to the main house there are two more pavilions - the pool pavilion and a two bedroom guest cottage set around the central swimming pool with terraced gardens cascading down to the golf course. The self-contained two-bedroom cottage is presently used as an office area. The cottage is adjacent to the lot that the main house is on and boasts its own entrance and driveway.
Olivewood is a golfer's dream and is home to a custom designed Ian Woosnam putting and chipping practice green.
The property is completely enclosed and has electronically operated main gates. There is a triple car garage and a cabana at the Sandy Lane Property Owners Beach Facility.
