A historical property built around the 1930s/1940s on an unusual large portion of land located on the western end of Virgin Lane, Roseau about 200 feet from upper Independence Street opposite the St. Martin Secondary School.
The land totaling 12,842 square feet is made up of two (2) contiguous portions of land: 6,300 square feet fronting Virgin Lane (44 feet) to the south with buildings thereon and 6,542 square feet vacant lot with a 3 feet passage providing alternative walking access from King George Vth Street.
The residence is a colonial home which was charmingly restored and comprises a bungalow type upper floor with basement masonry stonework, timber and reinforced concrete detached residential structure. It has a gross external area of 2,802 square feet inclusive of basement porch of 253 square feet. The main living area comprises five (5) bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, spacious living room and dining room, kitchen, pantry and porch.
Meanwhile, there are 2 detached structures including a single cottage with a gross external area of 431 square feet inclusive of a porch of 69 square feet. The other with 841 square feet comprises a garage, storeroom, kitchen, pantry room and laundry area with shower.
Most of the original features such as traditional beam ceilings and shutters have been kept intact with special attention to preserving its historical integrity as evidenced by the courtyard, cathedral ceilings, outside kitchen and hardwood floors throughout. However, the house was updated and modernized for contemporary living in the 1950s with additions such as a concrete wing with two bedrooms and a two car enclosed garage.
The combined lots totaling 12,842 square feet is indeed a once in a lifetime opportunity to own such a large land size in the city of Roseau and provides great potential for a massive commercial undertaking such as office complex, hotel, residential apartment complex or shopping mall among other possibilities.
Connected to all main utilities and within walking distance of the Convent High School, J. Astaphan & Co. and most social amenities, the property is at a giveaway price for a quick sale.
