This lovely home which exudes “old world charm” enjoys fantastic ocean views of the Antiguan north eastern off-shore Islands, Guiana and Crump islands, extending to the Atlantic Ocean beyond. The location is perfect for your very own summer home, family home or retirement home.
This property is located in Seatons Village, north of Glanvilles, west of Mercers Creek Bay and Gilberts Estate, on the north east coast of the Island. Commuting from the central business district is approximately a 20 minute drive, with a clear run once out of the city. Public transportation is also available for getting to and from the city.
This lovely house has two floors. The upper level is the main floor and is 2,366 square feet in area. An inner staircase from ground level leads to the upper floor, intercepting the living room which adjoins the dining and the kitchen.
The architecturally designed floor plan features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with living, dining, kitchen and two large external balconies with access from the living and kitchen areas. The L-shaped balconies are strategically designed to capture the awe-inspiring view of the islands and Atlantic Ocean from their position on the north and west of the house.
The master bedroom on the eastern side of the house is en-suite with a semi walk-in closet and ceiling mounted fans. The two guest rooms are on the south side and share a bathroom. The bedrooms have laminated wood floors, and the other areas are tiled with 12’x12’ ceramic tiles
The kitchen features Corian counter top and raised wooden panel doors for the cabinets. The cabinet drawers are fitted with sliders for smoother operation.
The lower level is a private, fully self-contained flat of 1,349 square feet which boasts 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It is tiled throughout the entire living space with 12”x12” ceramic tiles.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are located at opposite ends of the house on the east and west.
The flat’s kitchen has an open floor plan which flows into the living and dining areas. This kitchen also has a Corian counter top and raised wooden panel cabinet doors.
The ceiling is concrete and has a flat finish. On this level the sliding windows, measuring 4’x4’, are fitted with burglar bars.
Due to this home’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and active trade winds keen attention was placed to the construction of the physical structure and its roofing. The building sits on a reinforced concrete and concrete block foundation with reinforced concrete floor slabs. The roof is finished with 2×6 rafters and 2×8 ridges and diagonals. The interior finish is 5/8 treated plywood with a pickled stained finish. The exterior roof finish is ocean blue, with Tropicidal galvanized sheeting. Gutters and down pipes ensure that the entire roof area functions as a good size catchment for the double chamber cistern. Two public lamp posts with lights at the home’s entrance complement the property’s external lights.
