    About this property

    • Clifton Hall Great House is a beautifully furnished historic six-bedroom, six-bathroom home, with a two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage consisting of 13,686 square feet, set on just under 4 acres. The grounds offer an orchard with mature trees and manicured lawns.

      The home was restored in 2009 by the current owner, who was passionate about preserving the historic site and returning the Great House to its former glory. The history of Clifton Hall Great House has been widely documented, including features in the publications such as Country Life magazine (USA), MACO Caribbean, Living Barbados, The Spectator and notably ‘Historic Houses of Barbados' by Sir Henry Fraser and the late Ronnie Hughes.

      As you enter the main house you are met by a magnificent arcaded verandah and a double staircase to a central pedimented porch. The beautiful verandah tiles originate from Massa Carrara in Tuscany, Italy. The ground floor hosts a grand dining room, study, and drawing room. The kitchen, laundry room, bathroom and two rooms, also located on the ground floor, make up the oldest part of the home dating back to 1656. The courtyard and swimming pool are found steps away from a terraced bar and lounge area. There are three chimneys and two fire ovens which were revealed during the restoration project. These have now been renovated creating wonderful and unusual features.

      On the western side of the house you will find a beautiful al fresco dining terrace with a lounge area, which looks on to the orchard. This portion of the house hosts an office and spacious TV room with a fireplace. The second floor hosts the master bedroom with a spacious dressing room and bathroom. Four of the other five bedrooms, also located on the second floor, have en-suite bathrooms with hand crafted coral stone showers.
      The two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage has unique modern finishes while retaining the historical charm of the property. The cottage is approximately 2100 square feet. Other buildings on the property offer a three-car garage and two storage rooms.

      The property is well known for hosting events and tours, of which the revenue has exceeded the annual running costs of the home. Therefore, this property is ideal for a purchaser who may be seeking a business venture in tourism and events, or someone who wishes to own a piece of Barbadian history.
