3 BR 2 Bath Home on 1 Acre Flat Land near Sylvania / Pond Casse
This property is located between Sylvania and the Pond Casse roundabout and consists of a single storey house sitting on just over 1 acre of lovely, flat land.
The land bounds with the main road and there is a driveway present leading into the covered garage through a gated entryway. From here, the house can be entered through the kitchen or the living/dining area. There are also a storeroom and utility room adjacent to the garage.
The ground floor has an area of 1,400 sq ft and contains 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, an L-shaped open plan living/dining room and a porch. The master bedroom contains an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in closet and a private porch. A low basement is present, containing a floor space of 500 sq ft which could be used as a hurricane shelter.
Timber floor panels cover the living/dining area and master bedroom floors, and the remainder of house is tiled. A high ceiling with exposed rafters provides a spacious, airy feeling inside the home. All windows are equipped with hurricane shutters and security bars and both porches are secured with lattice screens.
The electric water pump is in a self-enclosed structure with one water tank situated on top. There is a 1,000 gallon tank at the back of the house.
A small area around the house is paved and the remaining land is covered with lawn and contains fruit trees including coconut, breadfruit, guava, grafted mango, cashew, orange and lime. There is plenty of space available for growing your own food. The higher elevation of this location ensures a cooler and comfortable living climate.
The house sustained some damage during the passage of Hurricane Maria in 2017 and requires the following repairs:
Replacing the roof over the garage and the storage and utility rooms. Replacing kitchen cupboards and countertops. Replacing some floorboards, one window and 2 wooden window frames. Repainting several interior walls, ceilings and house exterior. With completion of these repairs, the house can be restored to the lovely family home it once was.
Electricity is present to be reconnected and water is available for connection from the main road.
Driving time to Roseau is about 25 mins and the Douglas-Charles Airport is a 35-40min drive away.
The property is priced to sell at EC$499,000 which is substantially lower than the valuation.
