Property Description: 

 

Chimborazo Great House, built in the early 1700s at over 1,025 ft, is the highest plantation residence in Barbados. The main house has been newly renovated and is a must-see, unique island home. The 400ft driveway secured with automatic gates leads up toward the main house with dense jungle of tropical vegetation to either side. The property is home to indigenous trees such as age-old rubber trees, bay leaf and an imposing Banyan Tree. The Great House itself is constructed from natural materials - solid coral stone with wood details. The interior layout resembles that of the traditional plantation home with a lofty baronial central hall, traditional enclosed galleries, a 48ft long salon, and a verandah overlooking lush tropical trees and plants - it is the quintessence of grandeur.

 

Inside the main house, you will fall in love with the charming living quarters including drawing room, family room, gallery and study. The large kitchen with modern, stainless steel appliances, leads into a formal dining room with bar and an alfresco dining terrace. There are three bedrooms, two of which are en suite. The home includes a large cellar with laundry and staff facilities. 

 

Passing through the house, you will reach the sundeck with the sparkling infinity-edge swimming pool, a modern feature which dramatically complements the historic home. Surrounded by nature, the pool appears as if it spills directly into the orchard below.

 

Just behind the main house is the quaint Chimborazo Cottage, a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with open-plan living and kitchen, dining area and study. It includes a laundry area and a private garage. The cozy cottage features a stunning wrap-around deck with stunning views of the surrounding forest and the coastline in the distance.

 

Great House and Cottage sit on 4 acres of terraced tropical forest and an orchard with a variety of tropical fruits. The expansive gardens with multiple entertainment areas are perfect for afternoon picnics, dinner parties, cocktails or simply snuggling with a good book.

The Great House has been recently renovated to include a new deck, swimming pool, air conditioning in all bedrooms, landscape lighting and a landscaped paddock. 

Chimborazo Great House is just a 5-minute drive from some of the most picturesque East Coast beaches and a mere 15 minutes from commercial centres Warrens and Holetown on the west of the island.
