One Caribbean Estates proudly presents Bulkeley Great House for sale, a distinctive gem nestled within Barbados’ lush landscape, opposite the historical Bulkeley Sugar Factory ruins. This property, set adjacent to the fertile St. George valley, Barbados’ agricultural heartland, encapsulates a blend of historical significance and natural beauty, making it a standout offering in the luxury Caribbean homes for sale market.
Originally the residence of Sir William Bulkeley, a notable Member of Parliament in the 1600s, Bulkeley Great House has a storied past dating back to 1651. It has been the home to various eminent Barbadian families such as the Sealys and the Piles, and despite the passage of time, it retains its enchanting old-world charm. The property has evolved, featuring stables and dependencies where a sunken deer run once lay, framed by an ornate iron railing.
The estate’s traditional covered patio has been thoughtfully extended to encompass a large, free-form swimming pool designed to mimic a natural pond. This pool, complete with gently cascading waterfalls and a “sand-finished” bottom that melds into a faux shore, stands as one of the most captivating features any Barbados property for sale could offer.
The meticulously landscaped surroundings and the pool’s naturalistic design contribute to a serene and visually stunning environment, unmatched by any other on the island. Additionally, the renovated outbuildings have been transformed into modern offices, maintaining a mews-effect adjacent to the main plantation house and blending historical elegance with contemporary functionality.
Spanning a total of 17,500 sq. ft. of covered area, with the main house alone offering 10,170 sq. ft. across three levels, Bulkeley Great House is a substantial and inviting estate. It features five bedrooms, four bathrooms, two reception areas, extensive dining and entertainment spaces, and a guest cottage, along with a cellar space dedicated to laundry and storage.
Bulkeley Great House represents a rare opportunity to own a piece of Barbados’ rich heritage, ideally suited for those seeking a home with character, history, and a touch of architectural innovation. Its unique combination of historical charm, modern amenities, and an idyllic location makes it a premier choice for discerning buyers in the Barbados real estate market.
