Situated on a large 1.134 acre lot high above Cane Garden Bay on the exclusive Shannon Estate, Craobh Haven sits majestically looking out towards Jost Van Dyke and the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Gaelic for "Tree-House" Craobh Haven is high up in the rain forest close to the Sage Mountain National Park. Lush tropical vegetation abounds and the senses are filled with the rich scent and sounds of the surrounding natural environment.
The house is only seven years old and has been built for Caribbean family living complete with play-room! The central feature is the ‘L' shaped kitchen, living and dining area that flows out onto a covered terrace and 20 ft swimming pool. This really is the perfect space for entertaining or watching children run and play. The master bedroom is only a few steps from the grand living space and enjoys stunning view north-west to Jost Van Dkye.
The ensuite bathroom has a large walk-in closet and hot tub with a retracing shutter screen that can be raised to leave you soaking in the open-air! On the other side of the pool is a two-storey guest-house with a large bedroom and bathroom upstairs and two smaller bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs. This separate unit offers complete privacy from the main house and is a perfect retreat for guests or growing children.
Craobh Haven can accommodate the needs of most lifestyles. Whilst Caribbean in design and ambience, with the inside/outside living spaces, Saltillo tiles and gingerbread fascia, it has also been built with modern convenience in mind. There is a 12kwa generator that is centrally wired into the house ensuring un-interrupted power supply. Two cisterns provide 22,000 gallons of water and the kitchen is fully stocked with a Whirlpool dishwasher, Wolf stove and a Frigidaire fridge/freezer.
