Description

Harding’s International Realty offers for sale ‘Cockade House’. This impressive villa was originally built in the eighteenth century as a sugar plantation home set in 5.5 acres and was part of Bennetts Plantation. In 1971, it was later redesigned and transformed by the renowned English theatre designer, Oliver Messel.

With Oliver Messel’s reputation and tasteful decoration Cockade House is now one of the most exclusive properties on the island. Messel reconfigured the interior of the house, raised the height of the ceilings, added the verandahs, redid the façade and incorporated a lovely swimming pool.

Today, Cockade House can be marveled as a delightful country house hidden behind a driveway of Mahogany trees with stunning views of the Caribbean Sea and Sandy Lane Golf Course. The main house offers 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, study, living and dining room, a large, well-equipped kitchen with pantry, terraces and an inviting swimming pool, beautifully framed by a delightful arched folly, lily pond and garden pathway.

Additional bedrooms and bathrooms are available in the separate guest cottage and self-contained pavilion. The property therefore offers a total of 7 en-suite bedrooms. There is also a small office and staff quarters located behind the cottage.

Retaining all its characterful charm whilst conveying a timeless idiosyncrasy in design, Cockade is not only an artful masterpiece but a long standing luxury home, which so clearly tells an expressive story to its visitors without uttering a word.


BARBADOS

Barbados is the number 1 destination in the Caribbean for UK residents, with daily direct flights bringing over 1 million visits annually!

The Caribbean island offers sunshine everyday, all year round, with constant trade winds offering cool breezes to keep the temperature around 28C during the day and around 23C at night. This is one of the many reasons we, at Harding’s International enjoy being on the island in any given month through the year.

December to May in Barbados are mainly the driest of months, while afternoon rain showers fall during the months of June to November. Although the rain can sometimes be a heavy tropical rain storm, these are often welcome to cool down from the warming sun and nearly always only last up to 30 minutes.

Whether you’re a welcomed customer, client or friend of Harding’s International, a well-loved tourist, or a laid back, loyal local – there really is something for everyone on the idyllic island of Barbados. Rolling lush hills, flourishing botanical gardens, colonial plantation homes, dramatic cliff lined coasts, world-class restaurants, spectacular flat, calm beaches and a varied cultural calendar in which fish festivals and reggae carnivals sit alongside sailing, cricket and polo tournaments.
