Belle View House Lower Bay Bequia St.Vincent & the Grenadine Islands 14,000 + sq ft Private Hillside Villa Hillside Location
The land is densely wooded and slopes steeply down to the cliffs and coast. The house itself, because of the sloping site is actually on three floors, and is designed to take advantage of the open north-westerly aspect.
There is one main bedroom on the upper floor opening to a north-west covered balcony. The living space on the first floor opens to a north-west covered balcony, and two bedrooms underneath to the front are north-west sea facing.View full image Gallery at: CLICK HERE
Attractive West Indian Style
This traditional West Indian house is well presented and has a good combination of some stonework, lots of wood and practical rendered walls and modern windows to the lower floor. The facilities are good with bathroom for each bedroom. The upper floors have overhanging roofs so good covered outdoor space for the main living area where the room is opened right up to the covered balcony. The upper level has the master suite with en suite bathroom, private balcony & laundry room. Rare amongst properties on Bequia's Leeward coast, Belleview House offers 77.75 feet of direct waterfront property.
The road is a little more like a track closer to the villa - which adds to the ambiance. The owner always drives it and we recommend a SUV / jeep for the rental vehicle.
The floor below is arranged as two independent studio apartments. This house would be ideally split offering a residential one bedroom apartment on the upper level with 2 self contained studios available for rental at the lower level.
Secluded Property in Ideal location
The overall impression is of great privacy and away from the rest of Bequia. The property is very striking from the sea, perched in the woods with a good looking roof line and obviously generous balconies.
A tiny village on a spectacular beach this is becoming a desirable residential area. Hillside houses and Villas enjoy views of Admiralty Bay and pleasant breezes. There are local restaurants right on the beach so a great place to spend the day, This is the beach of choice for Bequians and there is a wonderful family atmosphere at the weekends. At Easter regatta time there is a buzz of activity with all the local sailing boats launching from the beach.
