Kibanda means ‘small house’ in Swahili and the present owners may have bought a small house but they have transformed it into a wonderful home, exuding charm and quintessentially Caribbean character. The first impression walking up the path is a cozy familiarity, and when the front door opens it’s hard not to gasp at the beautiful view ahead. The entrance leads down a couple of steps to the main living area which is completely open to the spectacular ocean view. Two bedrooms and bathrooms lie to the left and the sitting room/office to the right. His master’s choice of dark woods and subdued colours make it cool, relaxing and very inviting. Walking through this area leads to the kitchen and dining room, with a dark, solid oak, dining table and chairs. The kitchen is completely custom built by local craftsmen and is a joy to behold. Beyond the kitchen is the large deck with outdoor dining and lounge chairs. The pool is beautifully set in the manicured garden and nothing has been overlooked, as testified by the decorated satellite dish that has been painted with a garden mural to better blend in with the surroundings. The deck wraps around the front of the house and steps lead down to two more bedrooms and bathrooms. Also at this level are the pump and filters for the pool which show a very professional installation. Kibanda comes fully furnished, with the exception of a certain pieces that have sentimental value. Listed at $1,800,000.
