NEW PRICE!!! Nestled on an elevated piece of land surrounded with tropical foliage and overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the island of Bastimentos, this property is truly in paradise. Located on the breezy north side of Isla Solarte, it is only a 10 minute boat ride to Bocas Town. This is a very desirable location for a lot of ex-pats who want to live privately yet be able to enjoy the social life of town. Also the property is only minutes across from the town of Old Bank on Isla Bastimentos where there are bars, restaurants and hostels all with a reggae flair. Famous Red Frog Beach is also minutes from the house.
Speaking of the house, it is built on the side of a hill that commands a view both looking up from the sea and looking out to sea at the top. It has approximately 2000 sq ft interior and 1200 sq ft of porches.The top floor has a large kitchen area, an office nook with WIFI , a living room, a master bedroom and a master bath. Imagine waking up on your bed every morning and seeing a tropical view at the foot of your bed not to mention hearing the parrots and other exotic birds play in the trees where sloths hang out. The front porch is for living with a BBQ pit and a blender. The second floor has a second bedroom and bath as well as a man cave or bodega where most guys just sit and stare at their tools. Also the deck is designed for living outside. The bottom floor has a bamboo wall and stacked stone pilings. This area can be a yoga, painting or hobbies studio.
The property is “green” with it’s own 5000 watts of solar power. State of the art warranted “Outback” solar controller and inverter with 12-2 volt maintenance free batteries keeps the place humming. 3000 gallons of stored water are at your disposal and a septic system is properly installed. There is a new 400 sq ft cabin with a 200 sq ft bodega on the property. This can be used as a caretakers or a quest cabin as it has a small kitchen with new appliances, bathroom and bedroom all in an open floor plan. (The owners have just completed a new house on the lot next door with 1800 sq ft inside with 900 sq ft deck for themselves. They would entertain the idea of a total purchase for both lots and all buildings if a buyer wanted the whole place for a compound.)
The sea in front has a beautiful snorkel reef. The property has clean (ROP) Rights of Possession land and has long term ex-pat ownership and all paperwork is in order for ease of transfer.
