Montserrat is a very special island of just 5,000 people. It is accessible by ferry or air from Antigua, a 20 minute light plane flight with either Fly Montserrat or SVG Air. There is also a helicopter service.
The population is a mix of locals, American, Canadian and British expats, and they are the friendliest people you will ever meet. It is a British Overseas Territory, crime is almost non-existent, and the pace of life is totally relaxed. It is often described as the Caribbean as it used to be - no resorts, no high rises, no traffic lights.
This is the beautiful island that Sir George Martin fell in love with, and where he built the famous Air Studios, sadly closed more than 20 years ago when Mount Soufriere came to life. Fortunately she has long gone back to sleep, and the now defunct Air Studios can still be visited.
Isles Bay Plantation is a private development of just 7 villas spread over 30 plus wooded, hillside acres. Built by a London architect in the mid-1990's each villa is colonial in style and very well separated and screened by the natural geography to give maximum privacy. Lime Tree House is at the top of the hill and has truly spectacular views encompassing the Caribbean Ocean to the west and south, the two best beaches on the island and the Belham Valley to the south, Garibaldi Hill and Mount Soufriere to the south and east.
The property has verandas almost all round, a large open plan lounge and dining area opening on to the verandas and terrace, two bedrooms each with bath/shower room, an upstairs gallery room. There is ample room for a third en suite bedroom to be created beneath the terrace if required. All the rooms have high, waxed wood ceilings with fans, the bedrooms have louvered French windows leading to the verandas and views of the swimming pool and the ocean beyond.
The focus of the house is the huge terrace finished in terracotta tiles and framing the 40 foot swimming pool, both overlooking the gardens and the sea. The pool has a diving board, steps at both ends, a safety ledge going right around, and a semi-infinity southern edge. you can lounge in the pool and watch out for the green flash as the sun sets over the Caribbean Sea.
There is a garage with electric up and over, plus a separate laundry room. The lovely gardens surround the property and are full of tropical flowering plants, shrubs,fruit trees, banana and coconut palms.
At $390,000 this has to be the best value in the Caribbean. No-one can possibly be disappointed in the property or location, it is just as described, no impediments or hidden problems, and it is very, very special. All of the furnishings are included, it is ready to move into or use for holiday lets (for which there is a strong demand).
There is an excellent property manager, a great gardener, housemaid, pool cleaner, all willing and able to carry on for a new owner if required. The running costs for the property are very low, I would be happy to give details to any interested parties.
This really is a bargain price for a quick sale, for health and family reasons I have to move back to UK, in fact I would take a UK property in exchange, cash either way, subject only to it being similarly fairly valued.
Please email if interested. .
