Description

Location: Stepney Ridge, St. George, Barbados

Price: BBD$10,000,000, USD$5,000,000

Stepney House is ideally located about 10 minutes’ drive from Bridgetown and the South Coast.  It is a mere mile and a half from the emancipation statue (Bussa) a well-known landmark on the ABC highway. A major shopping centre, gas station and mini mart are all within 2 miles. Access is via a concrete road connecting directly to Highway 5. This property offers a panoramic view of the fertile Bulkeley Valley and the ridge stretching from Cave Hill in St. Michael to District C in St. Philip.

The House is believed to have been built prior to the 1690’s and underwent changes through the ages.  A sketch “Stepney Barbados from Nature 1831” by James Hawkins, previously displayed at the Barbados Museum, shows the house with the same basic structure as it stands today. Stepney House is “listed” by the Barbados National Trust and bears its plaque.

Of Outstanding Character, it is built on a brow overlooking the Bulkeley Valley. Covering approximately 3 acres, the grounds feature unique buttresses and a 40-step stone stairway, 11ft wide. Also included are traditional “sweet lime” hedges, large lawns and generous paved parking areas. A 37ft swimming pool and gazebo is set in the gardens to the East of the house. Outbuildings include a two-bedroom cottage, watchman’s hut and staff quarters. The spacious dining room features large carved mahogany pillars and are complemented by a unique staircase of carved mahogany rails.

The entrance to the home features marble floor tiles, a stained-glass window over the front door, and a unique window similar to those swinging types found in old churches. Featuring a cellar, the home is built with a number of galleries and patios.  The main sitting room is surrounded by a number of paneled doorways leading to galleries.  Paneled windows with built-in hurricane shutters can be found on both floors. On the ground floor the polished pine floors add to the outstanding character of the dining and sitting rooms.

The kitchen wing contains a breakfast room, displaying its old stone finish, a modern kitchen and the old kitchen with its original chimney.

The garage, adjoining the kitchen wing, provides covered parking for four cars. The original stables have been converted into a two-bedroom cottage with two-foot wide walls and two patios. The modern kitchen and bathroom feature granite counter tops. A solar PV electricity system supplies a substantial part of the electricity demand at the property, and solar hot water systems provide hot water for the house and cottage. The pool also features a solar hot water heating system fitted to the roof of the Gazebo. Call or whatsapp us today at telephone number 1-246-256-5809. Visit our website at www.doscrealty.com.
