(Property ID: 106305)
This one of a kind original Oliver Messel home offers a truly unique experinece. Located east of Sandy Lane Estate, Cockade sits on just over 5 acres of land and offers great sea views across the Green Monkey golf course.
This property was renovated and refurbished from the original old plantation house that had been re-designed by Oliver Messel, the celebrated theater stage designer in the 1970s. The renovations included a number of private cottages surrounding the main house offing a total of 6 en-suite rooms.
The property is surrounded by lands of Sandy Lane and the owners allow a well known Cricket Academy to use the lower field of the property, complete with a professionally laid pitch and a Pavilion
The Main House
The main house retains the beautiful Palladian style of Messel’s design and consists of a formal sitting room leading to informal sitting and dining. From here, the garden and sea views are the focal point. There is an extensive master suite, a private terrace opening to the swimming pool and the master bath opens to a tropical outdoor shower room. Also in the main house is either a 2nd bedroom or a media room, an office and a modern kitchen. The large swimming pool and surrounding terrace looks onto a “folly” a fish pond with coral stone ruin, another of Messel’s creations. The main house boasts an extraordinary kitchen, fitted out by Miele, including a large wine fridge, crepe station and its own BBQ room with a Miele grill station.
There are 3 other cottages set within the beautifully landscaped gardens, each with its own charming Barbadian design. Other outbuildings house a laundry and staff room, separate gardeners cottage and a 2 car garage.
The first cottage sits overlooking the driveway with a spectacular view of the west coast and rich foliage that give you the essence of “Caribbean living”. Just steps from the swimming pool, this cottage offers 1 king size bed, en-suite bathroom with tub and shower, kitchen area and private sitting area. This fully air-conditioned cottage is just the cusp of what Cockade has to offer.
The second cottage is located behind the main house, offing a wrap around porch, king size bed, en-suite bathroom with tub and shower and again, its own sitting room and kitchen nook.
The third cottage, which is fully air-conditioned, offers 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, perfect for a family with kids as one bedroom offers a king bed and the second offering a queen.
