Franklin's Estate House for sale St. Kitts.
Bourryau, Saint Kitts and Nevis
Listing ID: 00101481006
Lovely Caribbean styled house in Franklin's Estate just outside of Old Road St. Kitts for sale on top of 1 acre of fertile land.
Aside from the sheer size of the land the most prominent feature of the house is the amount of windows and doors it has which allows air and light through keeping every room in the house well light during the day and cool all day and night. There really is no need for air conditioning here being relatively close to the water but far enough into the hills to keep things cool and comfortable. All windows and doors are barred or gated for that extra bit of security. Added to that, on the main floor facing the Caribbean Sea is a verandah that wraps nearly half of the house, providing an excellent view of the Caribbean Sea. Just inside the verandah is an open living room with dining area, more than enough space to host parties or get-togethers. Ever the cool air passing through thanks to those windows and doors but also the raised roof.
Through an archway is the kitchen with cabinets that span the perimeter of the room and an island in the middle. A great size and shape for cooking for all those parties and still enough space to fit a small table against a well, perfect for an intimate dinner for two. There is a gas hookup for the stove and oven.
Through another archway, is a hallway which connects back to the living room and further down to the three bedrooms, the master with extra closet space and an en-suite bathroom. A guest bathroom is at the end of the hall both bathrooms are large and have stand up showers.
The master bedroom has his and hers closets and it's own private door to the verandah facing the sea.
Beneath the verandah is a 2 car open garage with a storage room.
Connected to the garage is large 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment with its own verandah, full size kitchen, electric meter, office, full bathroom, private entrance and laundry room. The downstairs apartment admittedly needs some touch ups but would not take much to get some monthly income.
The house itself is roughly 6000 sq-ft and the land is 1 acre with a very gentle slope towards the sea. Being so close to the long dormant volcano and very close to the old sugar cane fields - if it wasn't part of the old cane fields - the land is very fertile and already has mature mango, breadfruit and other trees continuously produce fruit year after year. The house itself sits near the front most part of the property but still has ample space to park multiple vehicles in the fenced and walled yard when the 2 car garage is full. There is enough land to the rear of the house it could be considered a small park with loads of trees for climbing and open space for running around in.
