Most Beautiful And Romantic Spot On Island - New York Times
Asking Price: $12 - $15 USD
PRICE: 12.50 to 15 USD per square foot
Half-an-acre (or a little more) of prime land on and just above the waterfront.
HIGHLY SOUGHT-AFTER BEACHFRONT LOT of half-an-acre is located on the highly sought after west coast (leeward shore) of CARRIACOU island. Through wooded grounds down to the water's edge, the lot encompasses a coral stone Boathouse to the south and an eighteenth-century Ruin on the northern boundary, snuggled just above a secluded Cove — the whole of Prospect estate from the public lane with an allowed driveway to the sea comprises over five Acres. Mains Electricity to the waterfront and a first-class JETTY is already in place.
"The most beautiful and romantic spot on the island. You will discover an enticing little oasis: with sea and sunset views, chances are you won't want to wander."
– Barbara Lazear Ascher NEW YORK TIMES 1995
THE LAND complements a private nature park encircled with mature trees and the forested slopes of High North lending a dramatic backdrop to make this the perfect setting. Step-off a sandy Cove onto a naturally wooded plateau before rising gently up a wooded hillside framed by the majestic backdrop of High North, to encompass uninterrupted views across uninhabited islands with magical sunsets every day of the year. A little gem, peaceful, relaxing, and breath-taking.
BOTH LOTS share a secluded sand and coral shore. Abundant reefs encircle an offshore lagoon, perfect for swimming, and home to myriad species of tropical fish and the chattering of magnificent Amazonian macaws signal a place thriving with wildlife. The small estate is a sanctuary for a flock of rehabilitated blue and yellow macaws (ara ararauna). Over the years Wendy Cooper has ‘gently’ released a few onto High North.
The loveliest sandy beach with gin-clear water can be discovered just around the northern point at Anse la Roche - downhill nature trail or four-minutes away by dinghy. In this gentle climate, your new island home is sure to capture the sea breezes, cool trade winds, a mere pebble’s throw from the shore. Removed from the rigours of the modern world it is sure to soothe the most frazzled of souls.
"One of the of the world's great hideaways…" Mark Ottaway & David Wickers – THE SUNDAY TIMES 1993
