Paradise Has Found Corozal at Sunset Villas Enclave! - It should be no surprise that people love to live near water; it’s the essential substance of life after all, plus seventy percent of the Earth is covered in the stuff so it’s hard to avoid.
This beautiful wooden retirement home sits along the tropical shores of the emerald green waters of Four Mile Lagoon and is completely off-grid.
The structure is entirely wooden and finely crafted cabinetry and other components made of Belizean wood.
With its open high ceiling and exposed solid-wood beams, the hand-craftsmanship in the place just screams Belize. The house is divided into two bedrooms with a single bathroom, office room, living room and dining room which areas flow right into the kitchen. It measures 1,000 square feet in addition to 402 square feet of veranda and 210 square feet of covered screened in porch. High quality Belizean hardwood covers the entire floor and bath-tile finishes throughout.
If sitting on the veranda of the bay, is your idea of a relaxed carefree existence, you can do just that on this property’s twelve feet by thirty nine feet veranda. The house sits on concrete stilts, evelavated approximately 8 feet from ground level making for spectacular views of the evening’s sunsets. It is a short boat ride from Mexican shopping destinations. A boat-ramp allows launching and haul-out of your vessel. Sited on a solid acre, with 120 feet of waterfront views, the smooth, modern- looking wooden structure with angles and cantilevers, is built high up on compacted landfill to guard against lagoon-rise. Prevailing breezes flow through the house when the doors are swung open, cooling the home and as it happens.
Off- grid means just that in the case of this kind of tropical living. Solar Panels connects to a 24 Volt battery bank. A back up 6.5 –KW, Honda inverter-generator (in case of lulls or emergencies) powered by natural gas (how green is that!) and, inverters and controllers is recommended.
A pump for fresh lagoon water is there for general, garden and landscape uses.
The one acre site offers ample room for vegetable gardens, orchards and for flower growing. Opposite the waterfront view is mostly-cleared tropical forest ready for a nature hiking trail to strike through it. Orchids and exotic wildlife are ubiquitous on the property. Fishes are abundant in the lagoon. In the end, the Four Mile Lagoon is perfect for swimming, (crocodile alert!) kayaking, canoeing, sailing, and its mangrove- fringed shores are just the right place to relax and read. Sunsets are brief but spectacular in the tropics so, the West-facing “Sunset Villa’s Enclave” is aptly named. Off-grid living on the banks of a tropical emerald green lagoon is not for everyone, but if you are a “water-baby” as some of us are (and you can afford it) this waterfront property is surely heaven on Belize.
