This gorgeous home for sale in Choiseul, St Lucia was built in 2013 to Western standards, has breathtaking views of the Pitons and the Caribbean sea. With 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 2 kitchens, including the self-contained 1-bedroom apartment, your family will love spending vacations here — or even living here permanently as you slow down to the pace of island life.
The design is reminiscent of the old Creole style. Hand-crafted jalousie windows let in the breeze but keep out the sun. A full wrap-around balcony protects you from the elements. Large 6-inch gutters control the water in heavy rains.
Top floor: Master bedroom, ensuite bathroom with shower, office/family room
Main floor: 2 bedrooms, full bathroom, open-concept kitchen / dining / living room, storage room (exterior access)
Bottom floor (apartment): 1 bedroom, bathroom with shower, open-concept kitchen / dining / living room, storage room (exterior access)
The house is built around the view, and the view really is spectacular. The Caribbean is to your left, and the valley below the Pitons is in front of you. The shadows cast across the undulations of the land and the spectacular shades of green are especially calming at the edges of the day.
The house is located just above the Village of Choiseul, on the island of St. Lucia. It’s a 5-minute walk to the village or to the ocean.
Choiseul is a laid-back fishing village, with about 6000 people living in the greater area. It’s located 30 minutes from the only international airport, Hewannora. It’s the most untouched and most sparsely-populated area on the island. It’s one of those areas where you would never pass someone on the street without saying hello! Neighbours look out for each other and are genuinely interested in your welfare. It’s also the safest area on the island, with very little crime to speak of.
Most of the island’s high-end ($1000+/night) resorts are nearby, including Ladera, Hotel Chocolat, and Sugar Beach. A new Fairmont resort is proposed just a short walk away, which will likely provide a huge boost to local real estate values, as well as some additional restaurants and amenities.
