2/2 Up + 1/1 Down • Asking Price: $297,000
This turnkey beach house is built to U.S. standards, with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs and a separate studio apartment on the ground floor.
The property is being sold fully furnished, with a clear title (no mortgage or loans) and property tax of $151 US dollars paid in April 2015. Local rental agents are available to manage property if rental income is desired. Would consider trade for Florida Keys property of same value.
Designed as an outdoor living room, the 12 ft X 48 ft front porch upstairs overlooks the reefs of the Caribbean Sea with mainland mountains in the distance.
Three sets of french doors open into the living room providing maximum breezes throughout the house. The porch continues around both sides and back of house, where it is 6 ft wide and completely covered by the roof.
The new front porch and living room expansion was completed in June 2011.
All rooms have ceiling fans with lights (three fans in the living room, two in the kitchen/dining area).
A central ceiling fan cools the downstairs apartment.
Bedrooms have built in closets with solid wood louver doors for ventilation, dressers and nightstands. Air conditioning units are located in both upstairs bedrooms.
The kitchen has a propane six burner stove with oven, electric refrigerator, stainless sink with built-in drain board and Moen faucet, lots of cabinet storage and is stocked with dishes, pots and pans, etc. The dining room table seats six.
Large upstairs bathrooms have tile and glass block showers and vanity cabinet sinks with Moen faucets. An additional outdoor shower downstairs has hot and cold water, plus a hose for rinsing dive equipment.
Downstairs studio apartment is 24 ft X 18 ft. It has a full kitchen and bathroom and is fully furnished. Upstairs has 2304 sq. ft. under roof, with an interior of 1080 sq. ft.
Reliable caretaker, wife and young daughter currently living on site in apartment. His services are shared with two other property owners (which makes it very affordable), so you can buy with peace of mind knowing your property is protected and maintained if you are not on site right away.
The upstairs has never been lived in full time, only being used by the owner during construction and, on rare occasions, vacationing friends.
Spacious .54-acre lot provides a xeriscaped buffer to the rear of the property and landscaping leading onto 76 linear feet of white sand beach. Interior of property is wooded with many native trees including palms, seagrapes, gumbo limbo, almond and nance.
Fresh water well, water filter system and hot water tank are in place. Large locked storage room is located next to studio apartment on ground level. Washer and dryer are installed in the storage room.
