Located in Landrail Point, it comprises two former Loyalist compounds. The estate covers 3.6 acres, with an artillery battery, plus a house with a kitchen. The great house was the centerpiece of a 19th-century plantation around the time of George V of England.

Today, the ruins are embraced by aloe and numerous other plants that were part of the estate's orchards and gardens. A variety of local flora and fauna can be found here.

This protected landmark became a National Park in 2002, managed by the Bahamas National Trust.
