Lower Level: Downstairs is another completely self contained studio apartment with double doors opening out onto the stone patio & gardens, where there is a cool breeze and additional comfortable seating. The living area is simple, but light and relaxing. The kitchen is a small size, but it is well equipped and there is plenty of space to prepare your meals, and due to the open plan layout, you can still be social at the same time.
Waterfront & Space for Swimming Pool
The grassy gardens slope right down to the waters edge, with stone steps into the water - perfect for swimming and snorkelling. There is also space in the garden to put in a swimming pool if required.
Coastal and breezy - This area is a great base to explore from - the airport is handy and there is a constant bus service too. Friendship Bay is the nearest sand beach with Resturant & Bar. But with the right conditions you can just step in and snorkel along the coast . La Pompe views vary from across Friendship Bay around to Petit Nevis and the intriguing off shore islands in between. The Old whaling station can be seen and a 1/2 day adventure to visit these islands is fun and interesting.
Purchasing land in a foreign country can seem like a daunting task. We are here from start to finish of the process, and pride ourselves with a strong relationship with previous buyers, assisting in settling new owners into the island and their property. We are happy to assist with any part, from the handover, relocating, shipping, staffing, and continuing through our rental program.
We extend our full concierge services, and regularly handle all arrangements for potential purchasers visiting the islands for viewings - private or scheduled flights, transfers, accommodation, island briefings, tours and property viewings.
We arrange and lead viewings ensuring they are comfortable, relaxed and well timed. We provided detailed printed material and can photograph aspects of the property which are of particular interest to you, ensuring that all follow up material is focused for you.
From helping you find the right property, assisting in assessment & evaluation, advice on legal processes to various areas surrounding architecture, design, project management, property maintenance, management, and rental.
The entire process can be handled remotely - ie while you are in the UK.Purchase procedure:

3. Sign Agreement of Sale & deposit 10% of purchase price in ESCROW account with the lawyer.
The Agreement of Sale Contract is prepared by the lawyer for approval by both parties, before being finalised and signed by both parties. This is a binding agreement, the only circumstances where you would retrieve the deposit would be if:
- the seller fails to perform (for example if there was not clear title)
- or if your ALHL is not issued (this is extremely rare).

We advise allowing 13% to cover the costs.
