For Sale – Lot 16 and 18 Moncrieffe, Barbados. Anyone looking to purchase a property in Barbados with rich history should look no further than Moncrieffe. Located on the border of St. Philip and St. John this property features the historic Millwall from the original plantation.

The lot measures just short of 1 acre and would make a perfect spot for a grand Barbadian home.
The Moncrieffe “Mill Property” is located at an elevation of 560’ at the SE corner of the St. John plateau, which overlooks the East coast of Barbados and which, further inland, rises to over 800’ making it the second highest plateau on the island. The East to West trade wind of this latitude blows from the coast of Africa, across 2000 miles of Atlantic Ocean, until it makes its first landfall at the East coast of Barbados. When the trade winds reach Barbados, they are driven up by the elevated plateau and drop their rain on its slopes, making it one of the most verdant areas of the island. The adiabatic effect results in a slightly cooler and drier climate on top of the plateau. At the Moncrieffe Mill Property, a well-designed home, which allows for proper air flow, will not need air conditioning, a considerable saving in operating cost. In fact, some people who live in this area will use a light blanket when sleeping at night, during the winter months.
BENEFITS OF A HOME BUILT ON THE MONCRIEFFE MILL PROPERTY
A relatively cool and dry climate makes for very comfortable living.
The architectural feature of the windmill tower which is not available at any many other building sites in Barbados, can be incorporated into a unique home that will be the envy of all.
The low pollution levels delivered by the Atlantic breeze make for a healthy environment.
By refurbishing and maintaining the windmill tower, the homeowner will be preserving an important piece of Barbadian history.
