This 4,900 square foot seafront home in Dangriga, the culture capital of Belize and the largest town in southern Belize, is the first seafront home in the community to appear on the market in years and is offered for US$350,000, recently reduced from $395,000 and appraised at $387,500.
The upper floor—the owners’ residence—includes three bedrooms, two baths and a spacious open living-dining-kitchen area, all fully tiled. The kitchen features Corian countertops, a walk-in pantry, and an adjoining utility room. Two large, covered verandas overlook the Caribbean Sea. The upper level includes 1,880 sf of house and 520 sf of verandas.
The fully tiled ground floor—which was a popular Bed & Breakfast in the past—has a variety of potential commercial uses in addition to being incorporated into the residence: a seafront restaurant serving both tourists and residents; a B&B or guest house; or rental as a separate residence. It includes a large living-dining-library area, three sizeable rooms for bedrooms or other use, each with en suite bathrooms, a kitchen and a 400 sf covered veranda. This level also has a separate unit of two rooms and bath which could be opened to the rest of that level or serve as an office suite, caretaker quarters or separate apartment.
Three detached concrete structures include a utility room and two storage areas. The large yard is fully fenced with two sliding vehicle and pedestrian gates that open onto paved parking, a basketball court and dog kennel. The total area on the lower level includes 2,450 sf of covered space—1,570 sf of house, 560 sf of veranda and 320 sf of storage—more than 1,300 sf of paved parking, and is extended by another 1,500 sf of paved parking immediately outside of the front gates.
This home is located on the largest and best sandy beach in Dangriga with a sloping seabed, excellent for swimming and boating. Access is on a short lane that serves only two properties so the environment is private and quiet even though the property is in the middle of a community with a population of 10,000. The main commercial area is three blocks away and stores, banks and doctors’ offices are within easy walking distance.
Dangriga is 54 miles from the capital city of Belmopan via the scenic Hummingbird Highway. Belize City, the largest city and commercial center, and the Philip Goldson International Airport are two hours driving time from Dangriga or 20 minutes by air via Belize’s two regional air carriers. The Placencia International Airport, currently under construction, is within 35 miles. Tobacco and South Water Cayes and the World Heritage Site barrier reef are within 10-12 miles and boating, fishing, snorkelling and diving are popular with tourists and locals alike. This property will serve someone as a wonderful retirement home or residence and commercial investment!
