This is a land of Victorian homes and wooden chattel houses trimmed in gingerbread fretwork, of sophisticated hotels and their manicured lawns amid the open spaces of the golf courses, the cricket pitches, the polo field and the Garrison Savannah. It is a land of pirates castles with their fresco ceilings, ornate Italian sculptures from the 16 century and the Gothic churches. It is the home of movie stars living beside cane cutters, the aristocracy, the artisan and the fisherman. It is a blend of people, style and structure. It is Barbados.

A few examples of  Barbadian Chattel Houses.  Some of these examples are here no more as they give way to more modern homes.
