This simply Stunning Caribbean Colonial Style Home is set on 52.96 acres in the area of Black Rock situated 20 minutes’ drive outside of San Ignacio, Cayo. With a hidden entrance, a leafy driveway opens up to 5 acres of well-manicured gardens. Originally built as a luxury Bed and Breakfast, The Summerhouse has been a family home, so your options are endless on this property. The location is ideal for business expansion, in the "Golden Triangle" of 5-star resorts of Black Rock Lodge, Chaa Creek Resort, and Sweet Song's Jungle Lodge and a few miles from the Belize Botanic Gardens. The property could be subdivided if desired. The Tropic Air Maya Flats landing strip is only a mile away, and you can conveniently fly directly to/from the International Airport daily. This home of twin structures, connected by Caribbean Pine verandas, was designed and built by the owners, hence the loving attention to detail. The main buildings use solar power and rainwater collection and are surrounded by hardwood and fruit trees, including, including mango (5 varieties), avocado (2 varieties), starfruit, dragon fruit trees and more. This home comprises of 4 bedrooms (one large bedroom with bath downstairs, and 3 large bedrooms upstairs, all with their own private full bathrooms); spacious open plan dining and lounge area; a country style open kitchen; a small office and a half bath. A secondary cement building could also be used as a guest home, caretaker’s lodging or for storage. With panoramic views through the doors on almost every wall and 20 ft ceilings on the top floor, a 10 ft wide wrap around veranda overlooks mature trees and gardens which greet you as you leave every room. The rooms are bathed in natural light from morning until sunset. The views from every perch of the expansive verandas are truly breathtaking! You'll soon select a favorite spot to enjoy your coffee, afternoon cup of tea, or hammock with a book and evening breeze….The verandas provide an abundance of outdoor living space and also shade the house itself, keeping it a cooler temperature. All the woods used, namely Nargusta, Mahogany and Cabbage Bark, have been treated with a natural finish to enhance their natural beauty. Take a leisurely walk around the 5 acres of manicured grounds to explore the orchid trail, pick fresh fruit for a snack, gather a little honey and see what kind of animal might be drinking from one of 2 fresh-water ponds (or at least check out the footprints they left behind)! Jump in the above-ground swimming pool for a cool dip and then retreat to the verandas for a refreshing drink. The remaining acreage is untouched and serves as a natural wildlife corridor. This home is a secret delight and completely original in its design.
