Yorkshire Great House
Yorkshire Great House is a beautiful traditional Barbadian plantation home that dates back (we believe) to around the middle of the 18th century.This traditional Barbadian plantation home for sale sits in an elevated position on the southern side of the St. George Valley. The property has been lovingly 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.Located just a few minutes north of the ABC Highway this Christ Church property offers easy access to the south coast. In addition the home also sits in a peaceful, green countryside setting that enjoys a cool breeze from the north east trade winds that gently blow across the island. Records that are still in the owners possession show that considerable restoration work and improvements were done to the property in 1910.Other features of this South coast house includes spacious reception rooms with wooden floors, high ceilings, wooden architraves and picture rails. There are also 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 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 and which no doubt offered countless hours of fun and frolic to previous generations could easily be brought back into use should the desire arise.
