This 5 bedroom (all en-suite) house is predominantly white with driftwood finishes and splashes of greys and taupes which create a calm, relaxing sanctuary above the vibrant blue of the Caribbeab sea below. This stunning property is on the site of the house formerly owned for many years by comedian, Bob Monkhouse. We think this is one of the best properties for sale in Barbados.

There is a gym, a pool, bar, BBQ area and the current owners are in the process of installing a second pool and outdoor bar right over the sea.

Cockade House

We absolutely love Oliver Messel houses. Messel was originally a stage set designer and he was a great friend of Princess Margaret and other royals. Although he died some time ago his legacy in Barbados remains and Messel houses are amongst the most sought after in Barbados. Not just because of their history but because Messel was able to create dreamy, romantic residences with exquisite gardens in classic timeless style.

Cockade House, Barbados

Cockade House-Messel designed property for sale in Barbados US$11.5m

It is difficult to depict in photos the elegance of a Messel home. In our view any Messel property which is on the market has to be on any list of the best properties for sale in Barbados. There is something fairy tale like about them with their Romeo and Juliet balconies, Messel green lattice work, symmetrical dimensions and fanlight windows.

Messel was an artist and romantic designer rather than an architect and the properties he designed are truly unique.

For obvious reasons Messel properties rarely come on the market but there is one currently for sale on the west coast of Barbados.

Cockade House is a completely refurbished plantation house set in 5.5 acres of grounds within a few minutes drive from Holetown with fabulous views to the sea over the famous Green Monkey golf course.

Cockade House offers 7 bedrooms in all including those in the tastefully designed garden guest cottages which work brilliantly to accommodate friends, multi-generational families, teenagers and staff.
