Yorkshire Great House is a beautiful traditional Barbadian plantation home that dates back (we believe) to around the middle of the 18th century. Records that are still in the owner's possession show that considerable restoration work and improvements were done to the property in 1910. This traditional Barbadian plantation home sits in an elevated position on the southern side of the St. George Valley and offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of Barbados' history.
The property has been well maintained by its current owner with much of its original period charm and historic elegance carefully preserved. Antique furnishings and original paintings adorn Yorkshire Great House and enhance the authentic setting that graces this historical private residence.
Yorkshire Great House also features a grand and spacious reception room with original hard wood floors and high vaulted ceilings. The property also comes with the original hurricane shutters and a beautiful, grand, mahogany staircase, which all combine to give an insight to the splendor and charm that this historical colonial period enjoyed. The property also benefits from 5 expansive bedrooms all with air-conditioning and large windows to allow in the country breeze and natural lighting.
Yorkshire Great House is ideally located just a few minutes north of the ABC Highway with quick and easy access to all the amenities on the south coast of Barbados. Purchasers can enjoy beaches such as Accra, Carlisle Bay and Maxwell Beach all within 10 minutes' drive of this wonderful home. In addition to all the charm of the home the surrounding gardens provide a peaceful, green countryside setting that enjoys a cool breeze from the north east trade winds that gently blow across the island.
The grounds are well kept with mature trees spreading their massive branches over the lawns that surround the house. A lawn tennis court which sits to the south east of the large rear patio will offer countless hours of fun and frolic for the family that buys this wonderful home.
