0.93 / 40,646 sq ft Acre Hillside Plot Mount Pleasant, Bequia St. Vincent & the Grenadines
Available as a full ~1 acre plot, or as individual sections of ~11,000 sq ft each *
Note: plots 1 & 2 are not available individually - plots 3 & 4 are available for purchase individually
This ~1 acre plot of land is perfect for the construction of a beautiful large villa with room for a pool and gardens. The location is the quiet, peaceful residential area of Mount Pleasant on Bequia, known for it's friendly and welcoming community.
This Mount Pleasant plot has some of the best views on the island. With a wonderful elevated position it boasts astounding panoramic views, from Lower Bay Beach across Admiralty Bay and the Caribbean Ocean beyond.
Located centrally in Bequia's Mount Pleasant, it an easy drive to 3 of Bequia's most beautiful beaches - Lower Bay, Princess Margaret and Friendship Bay, and to the amenities in the harbour of Port Elizabeth. Due to the scale of the island no residential area is far from the boutique style hotels, bars and restaurants.
The plot would be a perfect position for the construction of a potentially lucrative vacation rental property. With the forthcoming arrival of the new airport in St.Vincent the influx of overseas visitors to the region is bound to increase providing a need for additional accommodations on the island.
A central hilly area, Mount Pleasant enjoys a perfect combination of breezy elevation, rolling landscape, and access down to the beaches on both the Atlantic and Caribbean side and to the harbour town of Port Elizabeth. A very civilized retreat to enjoy Bequia from. Traditionally home of the islanders with roots in the French settlers, this is a long established residential location often with breathaking panoramic views.
