This beautiful home is definitely one of a kind situated overlooking the Castries harbor on the La Toc hillside, which is to the southern side of the Castries capital.
The property was designed by the much respected architect, Mr. Morrison, a number of years ago, and has retained all the charm and character of the original design and building.
The house is set in just under an acre of beautifully landscaped gardens, with unparalleled views over the Castries harbor and waterfront.
The house has a Spanish feel and uses a mixture of unusual concrete features combined with large wallabie posts and distinctively wooden features.
The large exterior entrance porch opens with double doors into a very attractive hallway with wood and stone features.
The house is built in a horseshoe shape, so it not only blends with the garden, but ensures most of the rooms have magnificent views.
The property is tiled in red clay tiles with heavy arch top wooden doors, unusual windows and distinctive security features.
The three bedrooms all have shower rooms and are all located via the attractive horseshoe passageway with many nooks and crannies and which make the house so interesting.
There is a separate dining room and office and the large lounge’s shape and style is relaxing and interesting and even has a sunken TV area.
The house is an older house but because it was built in an undated Spanish style it requires little upgrading to retain its calm and relaxed living style.
There isn’t presently a pool but one section of the garden has an open patio adjacent, and is accessible from several rooms. This part of the garden would lend itself to the addition of a pool or a plunge pool.
But, the house is only a very short drive from the beach at la Toc.
For the size of house the kitchen is perhaps a little small but the combination of pantry and utility room and kitchen could be combined into a magnificent breakfast kitchen. There is also a small unused maids area which would equally convert into an excellent laundry / utility room
There is a large parking area and electronic gates and a large water tank under the property.
