This beautifully proportioned plantation house was built in the early 19th century and has a rich history. Purchased in 1976 by Brian and Sandra Parsons, now Baron and Lady of Ormiston, it has been sensitively updated and lovingly maintained over the years. A collection of crystal, silver, furniture, and Mrs. Parsons’ personal paintings add to the ambience of historical continuity.
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!
