Windwardside Village, Saba – Authentic Saban Cottage for Sale
Nestled into a hillside overlooking the Caribbean Sea, this charming cottage is one of only about 125 remaining authentic heritage cottages on Saba designed in traditional vernacular.
From its quiet and peaceful hillside location, the cottage enjoys views of the sea, Mount Scenery, the lush green hills and valleys and the nearby island of St Barts in the distance.
Complete with white clapboard exterior with green trim, Caribbean fretwork, shutters, classic red zinc roof, original chimney and stone kitchen, this rare historical home was built by the Hassells, one of the original Saban families.
The cottage features a long sitting veranda with terracotta floor which runs along the front of the cottage and faces a pretty terraced tropical garden planted with bananas, avocado and frangipani.
The veranda leads to the living room which in turn flows into the kitchen and dining area.
The interior features charming touches such as original stonework, artworks by local artist Robbie Lynn, original wide plank wood floors, high ceilings and arched doorways.
The dining and kitchen area leads out to a large double terrace with spectacular views of the sea and mountains.
There is a lovely gazebo on the lower level which was designed by a Canadian architect known for his outdoor structures for national parks – perfect for morning coffees to cocktails at sunset.
The two (recently upgraded) bedrooms (both of which include en suite bathrooms) are located on either side of the great room. The bedrooms come equipped with air conditioning.
There is parking available in the private driveway in front of the cottage.
