In the north end of Hopkins Village is this cute local style home that is being offered for sale. This titled corner lot measures 60 ft by 120 ft making it one of the larger lots in the village. It is situated one block or a 1 minute walk from the Caribbean Sea and from the outside deck there is a clear view of the sea. Because of its prime commercial location and decent sized lot this property has many potential uses. Located 2 Blocks from Palmetto Grove, where there is protected canal access to lagoons and sea. The world’s second longest barrier reef is approximately 10 miles away.
For now it is being used as a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom house with a living room, small inside kitchen and loft storage space. There is also space outside for cooking for when you want to keep the heat out. The kitchen contains Caribbean Cedar cabinets, a full sized refrigerator, stove with oven, double stainless steel sink. The insulated metal roof helps to keep the heat out and is equipped with gutters and downspouts which drains the rainwater into rock drainage pits which helps to keep the drips off while climbing the steps and redirects the water away from the house. The house is raised on stilts, which helps to produce airflow around and under the house as well as an enclosed storage area where the laundry machine is kept with easy window access to the outside line dryer. The house has louvered windows with integral burglar bars and wooden shutters for closing up while you are away. The house is constructed from Belizean hardwoods and has been treated regularly against Mother Nature’s untiring onslaughts. Take a look at the photos and check for yourself how gorgeous this wooden house is.
The outside living space consists of a deck covered by a thatch roof, a counter top with bar sink and cold running water. There is a large 200 square foot open deck for hammock swinging and star-gazing. There is even an outdoor cold shower to cool off after you finish yard chores.
