Foolish Pleasure, completed in 2003, is a fabulous private waterfront home with big sweeping views of the crystal clear Caribbean from the wraparound deck that features a built-in cabana. Because the home is on elevated land, the Caribbean can be viewed from every room on the top floor. Frequent visitors seen daily from the deck include sea turtles, manta rays, dolphin, and schools of several varieties of colourful and playful fish.
This exclusive and private home is surrounded by non-developed lots and resides on the premium second most elevated and largest Palmetto Shores subdivision lot. Foolish Pleasure has 2 levels each enjoying its own privacy. The upper level has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, kitchen, dining, and living rooms with 2 owner’s closets all set on Italian ceramic floors. The lower level has 1 bedroom, bath, and a large open room that has the potential to be an additional kitchen, dining, and living room. The large and long garage is ideal for 2 cars or a car and boat and storage.
A stone walkway graced with magnificent palm trees leads to the beach, boat launch, and Caribbean less than 300 feet away. Entrance into the water from our 100 feet of private waterfront beach from a mixture of sand and coral is gradual and reveals beautiful coral formations. The beach area also features a Casuarina Grove that provides shade while capturing lovely wind song. Walk back to the home and enjoy a rinse from the outdoor shower underneath a majestic mature and towering royal coconut palm tree.
Glorious landscaping surrounds the home with over 90 palm trees and many fruit bearing trees including banana, lime, orange and grapefruit. An abundance of lovely flowering bougainvillea and hibiscus adorns the yard.
Foolish Pleasure is ideally located with close access to restaurants and a variety of stores of Palmetto Point. Governor's Harbour International Airport only a 20 minute drive away.
Extra features include central A/C, 2 large cisterns conveniently positioned out of sight and under the front deck with 8,000 and 12,000 gallon capacities.
Perhaps the most significant recently acquired features are the installation of public water, cable internet and a recently paved Shore Drive all the way from the Queen’s Highway.
Easy access to Rogue’s Cove for boat launching or docking is less than one mile away.
This is an excellent investment for the future as a full time resident or as a landlord with year around income producing vacation rental potential.
This home includes a bonus of 2 lots for future building of additional guest cottages or boathouse.
