With so many amazing attributes and characteristics, this amazing self-sustainable, off grid and pure organic farm with well over fifty (50) variety of fruits, vegetables, root crops and trees, can be best described as Nature’s Paradise located at Canal, La Plaine in the east of the Island.
Adored with the clean flowing Canal River and offering breath taking Sea and Mountain views, this well laid out 3.86 acres of mainly gently sloping land and plateaus with about 50% of cultivation is a mere mile eastwards and inland along a partially paved road branching off from the main road to the village of La Plaine immediately before the entrance to the Beach. It bounds with an agricultural feeder road on the east and a paved road on the north leading to the Canal River and properties further afield.
An original cottage referred to as a “Kai Pirate” (The Pirate house), built in 2008 is erected at the top of the land. It has been completely restored and modernized in 2020 with all amenities. The carpenter used only local hard wood such as balata, tarapit posts and Laurie siding boards to a fine marine text varnish finish giving it a very cool and rustic look.
The upper floor which is at road level comprises 430 square feet of living area and is made up of one (1) bedroom, kitchen and combined living area/varendah creating a charming Caribbean style of outside living. Offering great Sea and Mountain views, the Varendah can be enclosed and protected from the elements by the 3 double panel Hurricane proof expandable awning shutters. Strong wooden shutters serve as windows for the entire lovely cottage.
Meanwhile there is a small 200 square feet space below the upper floor which is accessed via an external stair case. This comprises a non-traditional bath room and toilet and storage space. The sewerage system is supported by an advanced ecological septic tank with an exhaust soak away system. Water is 100% recycled. Interestingly, the land has enough mature hard wood trees to build another cottage with plenty room for expansion of the existing home.
