Villa Cockade House, St Thomas, Barbados.
With such unusual features as a folly, almost six acres of beautifully tended gardens and grounds, a stunning pool terrace, and 18ty century origins, the Villa Cockade House is sure to become your new favorite. Sitting above the western coastal area of Barbados, in the St. Thomas region, it is tucked into its private landscape and offers a truly private and opulent retreat. Sized for up to 12 guests, it was updated in the 1970s, and features remarkably modern features that blend seamlessly with the iconic island design and décor.
Rejuvenated by theater designer Oliver Messel in 1971, it retains all of its 1700s beauty and charm. It was once a sugar plantation known as Bennetts Plantation and features the sprawling and elegant porch so typical of that era. There are also many outdoor living spaces that include an array of beautifully furnished porches, a massive pool terrace with a charming and irresistible folly tucked at one end, and the gardens to enjoy. The verandah at the front of the house doubles as an open air or al fresco dining room and den, and the vast archways gazing out towards the gardens allow visitors to enjoy the scenery and fresh breezes from the stylishly comfortable interior spaces.
There are many shared living spaces inside of the beautiful plantation house, including an irresistible study or den, a large and formal dining room, a welcoming living room, and a truly world-class kitchen. With the kinds of gear and equipment meant to satisfy even a finicky cook or chef, it will become a treasured gathering space. The six bedrooms are divided between the main house and several charming bungalows.
There are two bedrooms in the main house along with two private baths. The remaining four suites are each housed in their own, private cottages. Each has a verandah, opulently appointed private bath (some with outdoor showers), and beautiful design and décor. They range in size from king suites, a queen suite and a single double bedroom.
As one of the oldest homes in the area, the Villa Cockade House has managed to weather the centuries beautifully and remain a stylish and welcoming holiday home. Utterly charming, it sits behind an avenue of old mahogany trees, and yet is close to such attractions as the Sandy Lane Golf Course (the Green Monkey) and the appealing western coastal area with its unforgettable beaches and wonderful shops, restaurants and sightseeing.
