From the moment of its conception, the creation of One Sandy Lane has been undertaken with a rare determination to achieve the pinnacle of excellence in every aspect of its completion. The team that fashioned One Sandy Lane has paid minute attention to detail and utilised the very finest materials from around the world, along with exclusive designs and custom-made architectural features. For example, the elegant white pewter and iron balustrades that grace the magnificent spiral staircase and are found throughout the property have all been manufactured by Les Ateliers St. Jacques of Paris. This eminent French company is renowned throughout the world for executing exceptional renovations of historic buildings, most notably the Palace of Versailles. The balustrades have been entirely made by hand and they are unique to The Sands. The many beautifully curved and vaulted ceilings in The Sands are made of traditional French ‘staff’, which is a very special mixture of plaster of paris and fibres that can form designs of any shape. In order to deliver the very highest quality, E. G. Deco of Monaco actually set up and operated a complete workshop inside The Sands for some two years. The impressive architecture of The Sands embraces traditional tropical features such as expansive verandas, timber posts and the use of coral stone. The Barbadian coral stone, carved and shaped by local craftsmen, provides a complementary match for the superb quality Italian marble that is used throughout the building. In the ongoing quest for perfection, the marble was selected at the quarry by experts from Bufalini Marmi, then cut and pre-assembled in Italy to guarantee uniformity of colour and vein. In a similar manner, no compromise has been allowed with regard to the exceptional quality of the paintwork on the interior walls of The Sands. French artisans have used natural pigments to make the paint, then applied it with a palette knife, adding as many as seven different layers of texture and tone. The end result of this traditional method is a truly magnificent finish that adds a remarkable visual depth to the décor. The Sands has been meticulously designed to ensure that each individual residence is as independent as possible and benefits from the maximum privacy. Protected by vigilant but discreet security, and with the benefit of a centralised Security Control Room and secure underground parking, residents at The Sands can rest assured that their privacy will not be disturbed. Residents of One Sandy Lane enjoy the dual luxury of knowing that while they are guaranteed the privacy and security of their own, very exclusive residence, they are still able to benefit from five-star facilities and services. The developers have established an initial range of amenities for immediate use, which the new owners will have the option to amend or enhance at their own future discretion.
