The Bromefield Estate is situated in the north of the island close to Port St Charles and Speightstown providing easy access to beaches, boating and restaurants. Previously owned by Sir Charles Williams, Bromefield has in recent years been run as a stud. As champion breeder in Barbados for many years, Sir Charles’ racehorses and polo ponies were bred at Bromefield. With its own irrigation well, the land could easily revert to agriculture.
Bromefield House is an imposing and elegant period house set in the middle of 50 acres which provides exceptional privacy and security. In a beautiful setting with paddocks, mature trees and a pond, the house is approached by a drive lined with Foxtail Palms and Frangipani trees. There are formal gardens to the front, a pool garden to the rear of the property and lawns leading away from the house to the east across the pond. Built in 1664, the house has been meticulously renovated to provide 9,352 square feet of accommodation to include 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on the first floor, all with sash windows and hoods and shutters in the traditional style. The ground floor has plenty of retained features, high ceilings and wooden floors. In addition to the main house, there is a guest bedroom suite, a 1 bedroom guest cottage and a 2 bedroom Coach House to provide accommodation of 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms in total.
There are a number of outbuildings including a large barn which has recently been used as stabling offering development opportunity. In addition, to the south of the property and accessed by a separate driveway are three houses, two with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and one with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms set around their own swimming pool. These houses are currently rented long term.
Bromefield provides a rare and exciting opportunity to purchase an impressive estate offering privacy and security with an exceptional period home and within easy reach of the West Coast restaurants, beaches, golf courses and polo fields.
