2018 Open House Season - Bleak House
FROM 01:45 PM To 05:00 PM
Bleak House was built in 1860, and was probably named after Charles Dickens’ 1853 novel. In 1983 it was bought as a burnt out shell and rebuilt in classic Georgian style with innovative practicalities. Now the home of Richard Goddard and Margaret Deutsch, Bleak House stands on 166 acres overlooking the Scotland District and still functions as a working farm. Its antique furnishings go back to the 15th century.
The Barbados National Trust Open House Season, which has been a 'must do' on Barbados' events calendar since the 1960s, continues in 2018 with a showcase of some of Barbados' most historically interesting and architecturally magnificent private homes. In addition to 'lively talks', narrated by some of Barbados’ most well-known historians and architectural aficionados, the Open House Season 2018 will also feature live music, cultural performances by local schools, beautiful handmade Barbadian craft sold by artisans and many more enjoyable surprises!
