Clifton Hall stands as a meticulously restored historic Great House, with a rich history dating back to 1656. Nestled on just under 4 acres of beautiful grounds, adorned with mature trees, an orchard, and lush lawns, this property is truly enchanting.
The Great House itself boasts six spacious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, offering ample comfort and privacy. Additionally, there is a charming two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage on the premises, providing a delightful retreat for guests.
The front entry of the Great House exudes grandeur, featuring a generously proportioned two-story section with a magnificent arcaded verandah that wraps around three sides. A central pedimented porch, dating back to the home’s origins, is accessed through a double staircase, lending an air of historical significance.
Within the ground floor, you’ll discover the formal dining room, a captivating drawing room, a study, and a delightful bar area with a bathroom. The oldest part of the house, dating back to the 17th century, showcases sturdy rubble stone construction and includes a large kitchen, laundry room, powder room, and an area designated for pool changing. The west wing houses a comfortable sitting/TV room with a fireplace and an office, which opens onto an al fresco dining and sitting terrace, offering breathtaking views of the back garden and orchard. The wings on the ground floor surround a picturesque courtyard with a pool, creating a serene oasis.
Ascending to the upper level, you’ll find the master bedroom, complete with a dressing room and an expansive bathroom. Additionally, there are five other guest bedrooms, four of which boast en-suite bathrooms with coral stone showers, ensuring the utmost comfort for residents and guests alike.
The Great House spans an impressive 13,500 square feet, and its interior has been adorned and furnished in a manner that preserves and honors its unique character and heritage.
On the property, you’ll also discover a separate 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom guest cottage, spanning 2,100 square feet, as well as additional outbuildings providing a 3-car garage and two storage rooms. Two separate entrances and parking areas further enhance the convenience and accessibility of the estate.
Having undergone meticulous restoration between 2009 and 2012, Clifton Hall has served as a beloved family home while also hosting tours and events. The revenue generated from these activities has not only covered the home’s annual running costs but also presents opportunities for expansion. Adding more outbuildings and converting the garage into additional bedrooms could further enrich the estate’s potential as a unique business venture, benefiting from tourism concessions.
In essence, Clifton Hall is a magnificent and well-preserved piece of Barbados history, exuding character, charm, and an undeniable sense of heritage. To truly grasp its historical significance and splendor, one must experience this beautiful Great House firsthand.
