For Sale - Clifton Hall: A Storied Gem of Barbados
Nestled within the picturesque landscapes of Barbados, Clifton Hall stands as a testament to time, history, and meticulous restoration. Dating back to 1656, this splendid Great House offers an exquisite blend of heritage, character, and modern comfort. Situated on just under 4 acres of lush grounds adorned with mature trees, orchards, and emerald lawns, Clifton Hall is a truly captivating property.
This architectural masterpiece encompasses six bedrooms and six bathrooms, accompanied by a charming two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage. The Great House exudes grandeur, with its generously proportioned two-storey front entry section. A magnificent, arcaded veranda gracefully envelops three sides of the house, while a double staircase leads to a central pedimented porch that bears witness to the home's origins.
On the ground floor, you'll discover the formal dining room, an elegant drawing room, a study, and a delightful bar area complete with a bathroom. The oldest part of the house, dating back to the 17th century, boasts a large kitchen, a laundry room, a bathroom, a powder room, and two small rooms, perfect for changing by the pool.
The west wing of the house features a comfortable sitting/TV room with a fireplace and an office that opens onto an al fresco dining and sitting terrace. This outdoor space is ideal for entertaining and lounging while overlooking the enchanting back garden and orchard. All three ground floor wings open onto a stunning courtyard with a pool, creating a tranquil oasis.
Ascending to the upper floor, you'll find the master bedroom, complete with a dressing room and an expansive bathroom. Five other guest bedrooms await, four of which boast ensuite bathrooms adorned with coral stone showers. The entire house spans an impressive 13,500 square feet and is tastefully decorated and furnished to preserve its character and heritage.
Additionally, Clifton Hall offers a separate 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom guest cottage spanning 2,100 square feet, along with outbuildings that house a 3-car garage and two storage rooms. The expansive grounds are adorned with a combination of beautiful mature flowering and fruit trees, graced by stately lawns, and featuring two entrance and parking areas.
Notably, this remarkable property underwent meticulous restoration over a three-year period starting in 2009. While it has served as a cherished family home, it has also hosted tours and events, with the revenue generated covering the property's annual running costs. There exist exciting opportunities for expansion, including the addition of more outbuildings and the renovation of the garage to create additional bedrooms.
Clifton Hall is an extraordinary historic plantation home, perfectly suited for individuals seeking a residence imbued with character, charm, and history. Moreover, it presents unique business opportunities that can benefit from tourism concessions. It is, without a doubt, a well-preserved piece of Barbadian history, and experiencing its history and splendour firsthand is an absolute must.
