CURATES HOUSE, SPEIGHTSTOWN, ST PETER, BARBADOS
Curates House is a charming four bedroom, three bathroom home with an additional one bedroom, one bathroom apartment, which is situated on an impressive elevation that overlooks Speightstown and the West Coast.
Curates House is thought to be approximately 200 years old and was used primarily as the Curate’s house (and for a short time as a school) – assisting the Vicarage which is next door. As such it is steeped in history, with an old liquor room and brick bread ovens in the cellars.
Coming off the road one is greeted by the delightful crunch of gravel under tire. To the left and right is manicured garden and in front the 200 year lod house immaculately brought back to life by the current owners. The front door leads you directly into the family room , with dark wood and white walls. The staircase in front of the enrance can take you up to a couple of bedrooms, a bathroom and roof terrace or you can go down to the cellar and apartment. Back on the ground floor one can enter into the guest or master bedrooms or to the fabulous modern but cottage styled kitchen and out onto the pool deck and gazebo that houses the dining and bbq area .
The pool is an adequate size and the whole deck is being changed from wood to tiling to reduce the need for maintenance and further to add to the amazing appeal of this historic property.
Out on the deck one can sunbathe or relax under one of the gazebos and watch the sunset over the Caribbean which sits perfectly in the distance from this elevated position.
