House on Cottage Road is a wonderfully designed house with large open rooms, high roof, magnificent fruit producing mature garden and views of the Atlantic Ocean. Lots of care and love has gone into every room in this house. The entire house has a natural Caribbean design to it, large open spaces, lots of natural light and high ceilings all of which help keep the house cool despite the best efforts of the Caribbean weather.
As it stands right now, there are 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 3 separate work spaces - a library, an office and a jeweller's workshop, a large open kitchen with an island and plenty of storage space. The center of House on Cottage Road is a large verandah which overlooks the entire garden and has views of the Atlantic Ocean. Surrounding the verandah are the living room with its own patio again overlooking the garden, dining room and master bedroom each with a door connecting the rooms to the verandah. The kitchen is very large, able to support 3 or 4 people preparing food at the same time. Just outside of the aformentioned rooms are the library, office space and workshop. All three of these rooms can be turned into their own bedroom, the library has a powder room which can easily be extended out to fit a standup shower.
The library and 2 of the bedrooms have AC installed, the 3rd guest bedroom is cool enough at night to need blankets without any AC. The entire house is covered in windows or doors to the exterior that there is a gentle breeze flowing through even on the hottest stillest of days.
Downstairs is a small one bedroom apartment that would be perfect oportunity for some rental income or a guest/maid quarters. It currently has the bare necessities but is a standalone in its own right.
The property is encapsulated by cement walls providing plenty of privacy with the small exception of the fencing towards the neighbors just below. There is a gate for access to the garden and house for those parking on the street but also a carport with a gate just above the house. If not used as a carport, this space could be turned into another standalone building adding to the rental opportunity. All exterior doors are either solid hardwood doors, or wooden frame glass doors protected by discrete security bars. All of the windows in the house have bars hidden in the glass slates or have security bars protecting them.
The yard is in immaculate condition with many mature and fruiting plants and trees including guava, oranges, banana, figs, mangos, coconuts, avacado, bay tree, soursop and more. There's even enough space to have a small pool if so desired.
Much of the house has been remodelled including the kitchen, office space, library, bathrooms and the roof. The majority of the house has been retiled and the exterior of the house has a new coat of paint that isn't even a year old yet.
