This 3.5 acre property is situated along the North Stann Creek River less than three miles from the Caribbean Sea and is a treasure trove of native and organically cultivated hardwood and tropical fruit trees, ornamental plants, and vegetables. While the property is only a few hundred feet from the Hummingbird Highway and less than two miles from supermarket and hospital, it is surrounded by rainforest and offers complete privacy.
A small but quaint and creatively decorated wooden home is the centerpiece of the property with an outdoor lower level shower, a fire hearth with a thatched covering, a solid concrete outhouse and even a home-made hot tub surrounded by cement mermaids.
The property has been lovingly developed over 10 years by a lady who has been able to spend only a couple of months each year in Belize and who must now give it up. It is poised for development in a variety of different manners depending on the new owners’ dreams:
Continued development as a home and hobby farm by persons looking for a quiet retirement in a beautiful setting;
Upscale development by conversion of the existing ground cover to a fine lawn simply by changing from bushhog to lawnmower maintenance, use of the existing home as a caretaker residence and construction of a beautiful home by the riverside;
Development of an eco-resort with water access to the sea, easy access to town and convenient access to the many water-based and mainland attractions that make Belize so popular.
A partial inventory of the flora and fauna encompassed within this property follows:
Native growth includes Mahogany, Yemeri and Fig trees, Cohune palms and Giant Bamboo;
Planted trees include Coconut, Mango (Blue, Black & Hairy), Lime (Jamaican & Mexican), Cashew, Soursop, Avocado, Breadfruit, Orange, Grapefruit, Suriname Cherry, Bananas, Apple-Bananas and Pineapples;
Ornamental plants include Hibiscus, Plumeria, Jasmine, Red and White Ginger, Gardenia, Bird of Paradise and Mexican Bleeding Heart;
Wildlife include Coatimundi (locally called Squash), Armadillo, Iguana, Wild Pigs and an occasional Jaguar track;
Winged creatures are numerous and include Parrots, Kiskadee, Hawks, Herons, Orioles, Blue Morpho Butterflies and Fireflies.
This is, indeed, a unique property because all of this is literally within walking distance of Dangriga, the largest town in Southern Belize. The Southern Regional Hospital is within 1.2 miles; a high school, junior college, supermarket and hardware stores within 2.0 miles, the Caribbean Sea and Government offices less than 3.0 miles.
The national capital of Belmopan is 50 miles northwest via the scenic Hummingbird Highway while the Southern Highway begins its route through the southern part of the country within two miles. The Dangriga airstrip is four miles from the site with several flights a day traveling to the International Airport, throughout Belize and to neighboring Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras.
This is a property that must be seen to be believed and is eagerly waiting for the right party to take control and continue its development, hopefully with the same attention and caring invested by its current owner.
