This pleasant Caribbean home for sale in The Forest, on Anguilla’s secluded south coast, is as a throwback to the days of bohemian lifestyle and carefree living. Built in genuinely Anguillian style, the two-storey concrete building faces south, benefiting from the stunning view over St Martin.
Distributed over a generous 0.75-acre lot, the property comprises three buildings: the vast main house, and two wooden cottages towards the rear. The main house boasts large living areas on both sides of the central staircase. On the ground floor there’s a standalone studio with kitchenette and bathroom, as well as a separate area, once used as a pottery studio, which could be converted into an office or an additional bedroom. The top floor boasts a master bedroom with a small office space, en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet, as well as a small guest bedroom with outdoor shower.
Ample south-facing roofed terraces on both levels provide superb ventilation and open to the most gorgeous views. Towards the rear of the parcel there are two wooden cottages, one of which is currently the keeper’s lodgings. The second one once served as a shop where they sold decorations and construction material but has since been cleaned out completely.
The large grounds are populated with native plants, from fabulous dessert roses and a host of different palm trees to sturdy white cedars trees and a hive of sea island cotton, once the mainstay of Anguilla’s economy but now a rare sight on the island. Planning permission has been granted for the construction of a swimming pool and a cabana. This is an exceptional opportunity for a creative buyer to dive fully into island mode. Asking price: US $475,000.
