When all is said and done, life is all about opportunities. The opportunity to wake-up to the melodious sounds of tropical birds outside your bedroom window awaits you at this luxurious 2700 square feet villa. While the potential of this property is limitless, it is best suited for either a real estate investor who is seeking a great return on investment, a buyer who is seeking a great ‘lifestyle’ second-home for vacations in the tropics, or retirees seeking a safe, warm, English-speaking, location to spend their golden years. The proximity of this property to downtown San Ignacio and the well-attended-weekly-Saturday-market-days, is a strong resale point for the investor; the source of many unique lifetime memories for the lifestyle purchaser, his/her family and friends; and a natural ‘watering-hole’ for the retirees to meet up with other expats from the surrounding area. \rThe bells and whistles of this intelligently designed villa will provide the purchaser, his family and friends with the opportunity to enjoy the finer things in life. For instance, the artistic unique hand-made ceramic tile butterfly floor, and curved steps will mesmerized visitors at the very entrance to your home. The large foyer provides direct access to the living room as well as the garage, a visitor’s bathroom and a safe(fortified strong room) should the need ever arise. The captivating vaulted hardwood ceiling, the fitted home entertainment unit, together with the arched upper windows and double opening French doors, will no doubt be a conversation-starter for many discussions in the living room. \rAs you enter the over-sized kitchen (15 x 9) your eyes will be drawn to the solid hardwood (mahogany) cabinets dressed with carved Belizean limestone counter tops. The double sinks, facet sprayer, lazy Susan, fitted dishwasher, large pull-out drawers, wine rack, breakfast bar, transparent-glass display cupboard, and pantry, are only but few of the strategically placed amenities designed to enhance functionality of this living space. To add icing to the cake, those hard-to-reach corners in the kitchen cabinets, can be accessed via a secret door in the living room. The impressive (34 x 12) dining area showcase a delightful hardwood vaulted ceiling, custom hand carved Mayan totem poles, an exquisite BBQ area, bar seating with service window that open to the kitchen. A series of decorative arches accentuate this living space. A colorful hardwood internal staircase and railing leads you to the fitted home office on the loft. The custom made mahogany bookcase, bookshelves, and office desk transform necessary paperwork into a business pleasure. \rThe master bedroom is designed and built with comfort and functionality in mind. For instance, two external windows in the ‘his- and-hers’ walk-in closet allow fresh natural air to flow in and ventilate this space. The mahogany louvered doors also aid to keep the contents of the closets smelling fresh. Locating items is made easy with the numerous pull-out drawers in this area. The walk-in shower in the ensuite makes showering a delightful experience. This experience is further enhanced by the great mountain views and fresh air flowing in through the two large screened bay windows. Plunge into private, inviting, refreshing, and relaxing 12,000 gallon salt water swimming pool and enjoy endless views of the lush green tropical rain forest and the magnificent Maya Mountain on the horizon. Bask in the bright, rich, and warm Belizean sunlight and let the tropical breeze float the stress of life away. Share a hot cup of coffee or a cold local beer in the evening with neighbors, family, and friends as you become one-with-nature on the boardwalk overhanging the magnificent Macal River below. In addition, this exquisite, 2 storey, single-family home will provide the purchaser with the opportunity to continuously ‘WOW’ their guest with a journey back-in-time to the pre-Colombian era, with a visit to the World’s famous Xunantunich Mayan Archaeological site, that is literally only a few minutes’ drive away.
