Property Description

Price: Reduced. US$2,975,000.00 The Estate, originally over 350 acres, was granted to Mr. James Weatherill by the Crown in 1660 and by 1706 the estate was converted to a sugar and sea island cotton plantation. Many of the outbuilding including the sugar mill date to this period. The existing Plantation House was built in 1882 and has been maintained in pristine condition and is ready for modernization while maintain the character both inside and out. A choice 6 acres of a total 35 acre estate has excellent elevations and undulating hillsides.

You will also enjoy the Cedar Valley 18 hole golf course (ten minutes drive), as well as excellent restaurants, a modern supermarket and a wonderful local farmers' market (all one to three miles away).SHORT HISTORY OF WEATHERILLSJames Weatherill received the land called Weatherills Estate by crown grant in 1660, and developed it at as a sugar cane and cotton estate. Since then it has been owned by only 5 families; the Hallidays (1740-1870), Viscount Combermere (1870-1882), the Lane family (1882-1945) who moved the house to its present location in 1882, Mrs. Maginly (1945-1946), and the Schaflers (1945-present). The mill itself (Peggy Halliday) ground the sugar canes until 1912. After this time, the canes were harvested and transported by train to the centralized sugar factory. Weatherills remained a productive sugar cane and sea-island cotton Estate until the 1970's when this kind of large-scale farming ceased in Antigua.
