Full Description

Today the house stands abandoned and neglected, but offering the next owner the opportunity to pick up a bargain and restore it to its former condition.

The house stands in almost two acres of meadow and would certainly appeal to someone looking for a more quiet, self sufficient lifestyle. The total amount of land is recorded on two separate titles, one of 4150m2 and the other 3396m2. Crops grown nearby include banana, plantain, yucca and many different fruit varieties. It would certainly suit moringa cultivation.

Inside the house there is an open plan and spacious living area with a kitchen to one side with plenty of quality hardwood cabinetry, granite counter tops and a breakfast bar. To one side there is a large bathroom. To the other side of the living area are the three bedrooms, all with hardwood built-in wardrobes and one with en-suite facilities.

The recent history of the house is as follows:

After owning the property for around five years, quite out-of-the-blue and certainly unexpectedly after several days of torrential rain, the river overflowed and flooded the house. Locals said that this was the first time they had ever seen such conditions. The owners had put so much work and effort into the property that they were devastated enough to walk away.

There is no such thing as a guaranteed fix, however the potential for another ingress of water could be averted by changing the doors leading from the bedroom to the pool terrace into a window. I am told that this was the only point of access for the water.

The photographs are set out to show both "before" and "after".

It is my opinion that there is nothing that needs to be done that could not be achieved by someone with only a limited knowledge of DIY.
