A Spacious Beach House on a Private Peninsula
Set on a private, gated peninsula in coastal Belize, overlooking a spectacular seaside lagoon, this classic waterfront villa has easy Caribbean boat access, and is protected from the weather by a 1-mile-wide isthmus. Built to last, it was designed to offer its owner an unparalleled Caribbean lifestyle.
This secure, craftsman-built home has 3 large bedrooms; 4 bathrooms; a large, modern kitchen; a 4th-floor observation deck; ground floor storage, garage and workshop, full-time security, fruit & hardwoods, and sweeping vistas of the Maya Mountains and the exotic Southern Lagoon. This home is an excellent modern example of a lost art – the spacious, ‘old school’ beach home – thoughtfully designed for its environment; quality- built and appointed; and perfectly placed in a spectacular Caribbean setting ~ ideal for private relaxation & epic entertaining.
This home is situated on 1.6 landscaped acres and built on four levels of reinforced concrete, tile, and fine Belizean hardwood. It has high vaulted ceilings, wide stairwells, expansive verandas overlooking the seaside lagoon and the exotic Maya Mountains. Its waterfront lot is surrounded by gardens, flowering trees, fruit trees, and lush landscaping. This villa is reached via a gated, quarter-mile, all-weather, private, access road off Belize’s newly-paved Coastal Highway. Only 90 minutes from the international airport by vehicle or boat; 11 miles by boat to the barrier reef; this is the perfect location for a wonderful Caribbean lifestyle. It has 24/7 security, shared with 3 other ex-pat residents of this private 11-acre peninsula.
With almost 4,600 sq ft this house has on-grid electricity plus a generator. It has a huge filtered rainwater-catchment system, has excellent cell-pone coverage, and great broadband internet. Built to withstand hurricane-force winds, its roof was replaced in 2011 by unitized steel tile.
This location was carefully chosen to benefit from gentle Caribbean breezes. There are 3 other private homes plus a watchman sharing Hennings Point, this beautifully-landscaped, private, secure, 11-acre peninsula. It is set in Belize’s most beautiful and least-populous area, where the Maya Mountains come closest to the sea. The surrounding Southern Lagoon is an IUCN Wildlife Sanctuary. Its surrounding beaches are important nesting ground for the endangered Hawksbill Turtle. The ongoing scientific Manatee research here has been featured on the Discovery Channel. The tarpon fishing here is world class.
