Nelson Gay

Road View, St. Peter, Barbados

Located on a half mile of pristine, sandy, beach with incredible swimming and a reef at one end ideal for snorkeling.

A large area immediately in front of house is roped off with buoys for safe swimming. The villa occupies a two acre beachfront site with spacious landscaped gardens and a 50 ft x 12 ft swimming pool has recently been added.

Many giant old trees offer shade and lush tropical vegetation. Villa originally built in 1950s for US Ambassador Scotten and constructed entirely of coral stone in the grand Palladian manner (14ft ceilings in the living room). Nelson Gay retains the charm of a bygone era with many original features including the floors, designed by Oliver Messel.

Accommodation consists of 5 bedrooms in main house and sixth bedroom in cottage on grounds. Two new covered terraces were constructed in 2001, from the north and south wing bedrooms (of main house) which offer additional privacy and comfort. Elegant, garden gazebo by beach seats up to 14 and equipped with wet bar and fridge.
