Built to last, in 1997 by a very well-known builder in Belize, Steven Christensen. This house withstood both hurricane Iris in 2001 and a 7.1 magnitude earthquake in 2009 with zero damage. The house stands on a solid concrete foundation and was built with double hurricane ties. She features beautiful and original hardwood floors throughout, and a pitched hardwood ceiling in the lounge.
One of three bedrooms, the master suite opens out onto an east-facing, large wrap-around verandah, perfect for catching that daily sea breeze.
The kitchen, which looks out into the mature treed garden, is cozy and equipped with a stove, microwave and refrigerator.
The house has been a little neglected over the last few years and is now looking for her new forever owner. She may need to be treated for termites and some areas of the ceiling and floor need to be replaced due to dry wood rot.
Downstairs has the potential to be properly finished off as a one- or two-bedroom rental unit. It was previously used as a caretakers’ residence so already has plumbing installed. There is also an outside toilet and shower.
Downstairs also features a large utility room with washing machine and a car port.
The garden is quite large, with many mature trees. If you love birds, you will love this space. There is plenty of room to add a swimming pool or you can just stroll down to the beach via the community easement and take a dip in the ocean.
The location is very peaceful and the neighbors are very friendly. Very few places are off the main road and in such great proximity to both the Placencia Village and Maya beach.
Please contact us for more information on the cost of the repairs as well as the remodeling for the downstairs unit. Placencia is always in need of rental accommodation and this place is perfectly situated to be fully occupied year-round.
