This nicely appointed, hill-top house allows you to enjoy breath taking views from any of the rooms. High grade local woods, amazing carvings and excellent finish give a feeling of solidity and comfort. Built with all conveniences as well as a double garage, water tower, utility, storage and generator rooms, the forty eight hundred square foot home offers larges living areas . A screened veranda, outdoor wooden deck, walkways and planters enhance outside living.
The master bedroom, practical and refined, has spacious built-in mahogany closets created by local craftsman and an airy bathroom, giving close to four hundred square feet of living area. Two other bedrooms around two hundred square feet each share a second bathroom. A wide open kitchen with a breakfast bar, built-in cabinets, nice working spaces, counters and complete equipment will make cooking a pleasure, even for large events. High mahogany ceilings and arches in the living room and dining area enhance the elegant character of this home.
The property boasts gently rolling hills, vast pastures and five acres of premium quality citrus, mangos and avocados; just some of the numerous different kinds of fruits you will find here. The pristine Macal River, flowing direct from the Mountain Pine Ridge, meanders between rock formations, swimming holes and sandy beaches along the property for about a mile, with some impressive large trees lining the river banks.
There is a caretaker house close to the main entry gate that may give different options for use.
This property makes an incredibly beautiful home and private estate secluded from the bustle of everyday life but only a few miles from the popular town of San Ignacio. Alternatively, the Macal River Valley is home to several high-end Eco-Resorts and this property could very easily become a 5 star resort, nestled in one of the most scenic parts of the famous Cayo District.
San Ignacio is the main inland tourist destination for the growing Belize tourist industry and is a friendly, multi-national, bustling town which, apart from being very popular with tourists, is also the number one choice for foreigners re-locating to start a new life in Belize. Just ten miles to the west is the Guatemalan border and the gateway to all of the unique Central American countries. Of course, there are no more civil wars going on now and a few hours drive can take you past Flores and the Rio Dulce to Guatemala City, Antigua and Lake Atitlan – which has the reputation of being the most beautiful lake in the world. San Ignacio is also at the centre of the Maya empire and breathtaking Maya ruins including Belize’s Caracol and Guatemala’s Tikal are just a couple of hours away.
