Uniquely Private Retreat
Located on the east side of the island, the property is part of the historic Park Estate. Just inside the shaded entry gate lie the ruins of a sugar mill, whose impressive remains testify to the area's long history. The many fragments of pre-Columbian pottery found along the beach speak of an even older past, as do the ancient trails that wind through the surrounding woodlands.
Park Bay House makes the most of its enchanting environment. The spacious rear courtyard, built from native stone, has a raised dining and barbecue area shaded by a beautiful hardwood arbor. The surrounding garden area is relaxing and sheltered, with a hammock strung under mature trees and the hushed sounds of the ocean waves.
The main cistern under the house has a capacity of 16,000 gallons. An above-ground tank in the back of the property holds about 500 gallons, and can be used to store non-potable water. The plumbing can switch to use either source to flush the toilets, and this can really save on fresh water usage.
We have included full details on the electrical system - click the "PLANS' tab above if you wish to view these - very robust self contained system running for owners and guests use proven to be reliable.There is also a Backup generator Yamaha EF2600.
The septic tank is located to the southeast of the house, as it slopes to the sea and the drainage gully. The septic system performs very well.
