Palm Estate offers a unique opportunity to purchase 3 acres of reef protected waterfront property, possibly the longest stretch of waterfront property currently available in Antigua, nestled between other private properties offering the buyer security and privacy. East facing views towards Green Island offer year round cooling breezes and endless perfect sunrises.
The property comprises four separate buildings, with views towards the landscaped tropical gardens stretching down to the waterfront and the boat jetty. The central living area has a large and spacious beautifully finished and equipped open plan kitchen and large lounge opening out towards the breeze and covered dining patio.
The adjacent air conditioned master suite has a large lounge, king bedded room and en suite bathroom and an additional bedroom ideal for a growing family. The third cottage houses two large double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.
The house is built on a rock foundation and has been constructed using 3000 psi reinforced concrete, with 8″ concrete blocks and reinforced ring beams. The roofs are built from pressure treated lumber (3″ x 6″ joists) cast into the final ring beam with hold down rebar stirrups. The floor tiles are 18″ travertine and are used throughout the property both inside and also on the patios and walkways between the three cottages, almost 5,700 square feet in total . The stones used for the retaining wall behind and in front of the house were cut by hand and the long drive from the gate and the parking area are paved with bricks.
There is a spacious three car garage which has been constructed with a view to building a guest cottage on top. Plumbing and electrical preparation has been installed to facilitate this development.
The bathrooms have been built with solid concrete roofs in order to be used as storm shelters. There is large fresh water storage as well as two large septic tanks. The property is supplied with APUA government electricity supply as well as a more than adequate back up generator and internet service. There is a solar energy system installed which is tied to the APUA grid and carries a guarantee for a further 20 years.
There is a boat dock with boat lift. The dock is 97 feet long (30 metres), and up to 20 feet wide (6.5 m) at the widest ‘T’ section and with a boat lift that accommodates most vessels up to 35 feet long – certified up to 10,000lbs (4500 kilos).
The location of Palm Estate is simply stunning and this is a ‘must see’ property for any prospective buyer looking for an idyllic waterfront location and a Caribbean dream home.
