About This Property

A Wooded Wonderland

Bulkeley Great House represents one of the most unique properties in Barbados. Sitting in a wooded landscape across from the now-closed Bulkeley Sugar factory, it’s located adjacent to the St. George valley, the “bread-basket” of Barbados and one of the most fertile agricultural areas on the island.

The previous home of Sir William Bulkeley, a Member of Parliament in the 1600s, this property dates back to 1651 and has housed a number of prominent Barbadian families, including the Sealys and the Piles. It has seen many changes over the centuries, but still maintains its old-world charm. For instance, the front garden overlooking the entrance once contained a sunken deer run which was walled by an elaborate iron railing around the circumference; today this area houses stables and other dependencies.

The traditional covered patio, which surrounds the main house, has been recently extended on the eastern side to overlook a large free-form swimming pool. This pool has been constructed to give the appearance of a natural pond, with gently cascading waterfalls and a “sand-finished” bottom that extends beyond the water-level to form a shore.

The surrounding landscaping and complete impact of this pool is one of the most exceptional features of any property on the island. Another notable feature is the renovated outbuildings which now provide offices of an international standard. These offices create a mews-effect next to the main plantation house.

Bulkeley offers a total of 17,500 sq. ft. of total covered area, with the main house spread over three levels of 10, 170 sq. ft. of covered space. The charming property features five bedrooms and four bathrooms, two reception areas, ample dining and entertainment areas and a guest cottage. In addition to the first and second floors, there is also a cellar space which provides a separate laundry area and room for storage.

Bulkeley Great House represents an Altman Signature Property, which qualifies it as a unique property of special interest.
