This lovely property is located just below a ridge top that is connected to Lower Bay looking down a lush well-planted tropical garden offering glimpses over Friendship Bay and the surrounding area. The aromatic garden includes bananas and figs, plums, mangos, sour-sop, cherry, papaya, pumpkin, passion fruit, lime, sugar apple, oranges and guava trees.
In October 2011 the roof of this property was completely renovated. It has been elevated allowing for a far better water catchment area as a result. It also gives the inside of the property more airflow making it much cooler especially during the midday hours. The property sits amongst a half-acre of mature tropical hillsides where there is ample space for further development such as a guest cottage and private pool for instance.
The property is in a quiet elevated location currently without a road access however with relatively little expenditure a new road could be constructed directly to the property.
Located on the gentle sloping hillside the property welcomes cooling offshore breezes via an ample traditional wooden verandah. There are 4 intimate relaxing bedrooms, a bathroom and a lounge / living room that leads out to the wooden verandah on the upper level. On the ground level there is the family kitchen and several dining areas which lead out to the garden and exterior storage areas.
This property would be ideal as a residential or a vacation property that, with the addition of a pool, could generate a weekly rental rate of around 2000 USD.
The property is a 10 - 15 minutes walking distance from the best swimming beaches on the island (i.e. Friendship Bay, Lower Bay and Princess Margaret Beaches). Located in a quiet residential location it is a perfect place to escape, yet only a short drive from bars, restaurants and several beautiful other un-spoilt beaches.
The owner has spent considerably over the last 7 years improving the property.
