The WATERFRONT bungalow everyone's been waiting for! This two bedroom, one bath Caribbean cottage sits on the waterfront in Cane Bay on the north shore. The dramatic waterfront hillside location allows for gorgeous, unobstructed sea views (literally, on the day we went to take photographs we watched whales pass by). This is a deep lot allowing for expansion and room to add a pool on the seaside of the property. The layout is ideal with a large living room that flows out to the seaside veranda, spacious kitchen and huge dining room. The bedrooms and one bath sit opposite of the kitchen, flanking the open and airy living room. With an ideal layout, PRIME waterfront location, sturdy construction and a deep lot this is the perfect home to update with your personal touch! You are just a short walk or drive to the popular Cane Bay beach for diving, snorkeling, beach combing or simply liming under a palm tree. Several restaurants nearby from fine dining at AMA, pizza and Bingo at Off The Wall to some delicious dishes and crafted cocktails at The Landing. The villa is perfect how it is if you want to move right in and enjoy this prime piece of waterfront real estate, but if you wish to make some upgrades here are some ideas working with the already ideal layout. Expand the outdoor sea facing deck and add on a seaside swimming pool - the flow of the home will be absolutely perfect with the pool and deck directly opening up to the great room, all with unobstructed sea views. Build up: Create a master suite on the upper level with an expansive private, sea facing gallery. The current main bedroom is located on the sea facing side of the home - add in French doors on the sea side so this bedroom suite can open right to the sea facing outdoor living space. The dining room IS huge - so why not expand your kitchen into the dining room and include a large island and eat-in bar. There is so much you can do with this space! Add a cover to the sea facing outdoor living space for a year-round dining and living experience (those north shore breezes will keep that area cool all year long). There is a concrete pad already in place (used to have power that ran to it) that sits right above the sea - add a hot tub (what they used to have there) or a gazebo to enjoy sunset cocktails with the best seat on island. There is a beautiful courtyard at the entrance that can be dressed up with beautiful flora and fauna so you are greeted by a botanical garden. Add a cozy sitting area and a bistro table with an umbrella to add to the charm and expand your outdoor living space. Think coffee, tea, yoga, meditation... Please note: All of these ideas should be discussed with a local builder or architect and confirmed with zoning, CZM, DPNR and HOA. According to MapGeo this waterfront home (the structure) is not in a flood zone. We advise you confirm this with a flood elevation survey and obtain a flood elevation certificate, especially of you are considering adding on to the property.
