Perched on a hill with unobstructed 270-degree ocean views, this one-of-a-kind modern home on the Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire offers out-door living all year long. The perfect place to live your dream! The house sits on 27.5 acres (11+ha) of private property in a planned and gated community for complete privacy. . . and it is only 15 minutes from town.
The safe and peaceful island of Bonaire is actually a municipality of Holland and is known for some of the world’s best scuba diving, snorkeling and wind- and kite-surfing. It lies outside the hurricane belt in the southern Caribbean with direct flights from Amsterdam, Newark, Houston and Atlanta.
This contemporary low maintenance home on one level features multiple outdoor living and dining areas and an immense cook’s kitchen with 6-burner stove, two sinks, two refrigerators, dishwasher, chest freezer, microwave and all the other necessary amenities. A large patio pool creates a soothing, cooling water feature in the main living area. Special aerodynamics ensure the home is always cool and breezy.
The main house/pool/patio area is 4,144 sq. ft. (or 385 m2) and is currently configured with two en-suite bedrooms but the oversized office/TV room could be transformed into one or two more bedrooms. Designed by a well-known architect, the house has been featured in several magazines including Caribbean Travel & Life, Retirement Living and Home Power. The land is private property and is protected through deed restrictions to keep it green and natural forever. A second house can be built on the 27 acre lot.
Out the back of the house to the north is a winding walkway to a very special rock formation overlooking acres of untouched nature and the sea. The peaceful natural formation is ideal for a morning yoga session or sundowners before dinner.
In the covered garage space, which is separate from the house, is a workshop, a laundry room and several large storage closets. This garage facility is another 915 sq. ft. (85 m2) and could be converted to a separate apartment.
This 750-acre planned community, with 22 similarly large lots, was created by a group of American, Dutch, British and Antillean nature lovers and includes several common nature spots for picnicking. You will have wonderful neighbors . . . but you won’t see them from the house.
The solar powered off-the-grid home boasts all the modern amenities and high-speed internet. All furnishings are included in the price. $549,000 For more information, photos, video, floor plan and contact form go to: www.sunspotsbonaire.com/sale Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymo8cozyqIc&feature=youtu.be
