The property features 103 feet of deep-water frontage with potential to moor vessels up to 150 feet in length.
The docks, which once formerly served as the setting for a bar and restaurant, could be rebuilt to accommodate larger vessels such as a superyacht if desired.
IDEAL PRIVATE HOME OR GUEST HOUSE / BOUTIQUE HOTEL
The property is currently used as a guest house.
It could be continued to be operated as a guest house or small, high end boutique hotel.
Alternatively, the property would make a wonderful private home which could be redeveloped to create a large, modern villa with guest/staff/crew cottages.
HUGE DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL
Zoned for Residential and Touristic use, Planning Approval in Principle has been granted to the current owner for the construction of 12 large apartments on the hillside behind the house.
Such a development would qualify for registration under the St Lucia Citizenship by Investment program – the source of some low-cost development capital.
An additional 30 acres of undeveloped land for sale is also available separately to the north, east and west which provides tremendous development potential.
