Open House: Beauchamp Hall, St. John
The Open House programme is presented by the Barbados National Trust.
Beauchamp Hall, in St. John is this week's Open House.
It’s one of those houses you spot on a country drive and wish you could look inside. Abandoned for several years, it was redeemed in 1995 by owners who enlarged and remodelled extensively, accenting its plantation style features. It is filled with bright Caribbean art including five Boscoe Holder paintings, a melange of antique and fine reproduction furniture made here in Barbados, and interesting personal details. In some ways it’s a showcase, but it feels like a welcoming home.
From Highway 2A, turn inland at the Emancipation statue onto Highway 5 towards Six Cross Roads. Shortly after passing Bentley on your right, turn left to Edgecumbe. Continue past St.Philip’s Church on your right. After passing the prison, take the next left up hill and pass the District C police station. Near Moncreiffe, you’ll see Open House signs.
