All plots, most with waterfront, are being offered for sale at this small exquisite development in a delightful Caribbean location.If you are looking for a house where you can step out onto a crowded beach, fight for a sun lounger and then listen to the chat of holiday makers, then this is not for you.
If you like the idea of a secure location with privacy, tranquility and your own private dock from where you can take your boat to several untouched beaches and explore hundreds of acres of unspoilt coral reef and hardly see a soul, then the Peninsula is for you so read on.
The Peninsula is located at the east of Antigua, twenty minutes drive from the new international airport. It is fair to say that it is one of the most tranquil and unspoilt locations in the Caribbean.
The three headlands are surrounded by the shallow waters of Belfast Bay, which is protected by a chain of small, uninhabited islands and corals reefs. The whole bay is a breeding ground for tropical fish and turtles. Dolphins and migrating whales can occasionally be seen from the bay.
This area, reached by a private road from the local village of Willikies, is being developed sympathetically by long-time residents of Antigua in a style that reflects traditional West Indian architecture.
The Peninsula offers the potential buyer land for a small number of quality homes on the waterfront that will take advantage of the cooling breezes and breathtaking views. These are homes for the discerning who will appreciate peace, tranquility and privacy in a secure unspoilt environment. Plots are generally of approximately one acre sloping towards the inlets within the bay.
All homes that are already built are architect designed and all but one by Andrew Goodenough. Full planning permission is readily available and building can take from six months to one year. All utilities, including electricity and telephone services, are underground.
As of the writing, there are no management charges but we can anticipate that on completion of most of the homes there will be a small charge to cover security, lighting, common area maintenance and any amenities added at the request of homeowners.
Antigua has a stable democratically elected government committed to the development of tourism and the offshore financial services industry. It has long standing ties with Great Britain, United States and Canada.
For many years a favoured location for holiday and retirement homes, Antigua now offers permanent residence status. This will appeal to individuals wishing to establish residence in a country that has:
- no capital gains tax
- no inheritance tax
- no wealth tax
