Every now and then as a Realtor, I walk into a Caribbean home and feel transported to a different time and place. While the Atlantic or Caribbean views tell me this is really the tropics, the interior of the home speaks of somewhere else. It’s an unexpected combination that can be charming. One such home is Sun Rose, in Peterborg’s Red Rock community. There’s a serenity about the home that contrasts with the whimsey of many Caribbean homes. Sun Rose emits a New England dignity, with tall ceilings, a rich mahogany custom kitchen and elegant white Corian counters. Steps away is the white, slip-covered sofa accented by a rustic Indonesian bench. Alongside the home’s cocktail pool is a small, one room, clapboard bungalow -suggestive of a New England cottage, which is used as a bedroom, but would also be ideal for an office or workout area.
Sun Rose is meticulously maintained, has a venerable air about it, and is priced with a quick sale in mind. Owners are moving to….New England. Four bedrooms – one outside and downstairs with a bathroom and outdoor shower, and three bedrooms, two (stone-tiled) bathrooms in the main home. Then there’s the bungalow for more sleeping or working space, and did I mention the lovely office bordering the kitchen? It’s just off the “vestibule” – another elegant old-world feature of this gated home, in a gated community with down island views that tell you – you are indeed in the Caribbean!
