Lower Bay, Bequia
St. Vincent & the Grenadines
A Charming One of a Kind Fifty Year Old Home and Wildlife Sanctuary
Located on gently sloping hillside land, encompassing panoramic ocean views stretching over Admiralty Bay and Princess Margaret Beach on one side, and the Southern Grenadine islands on the other side. The North Side of Lawler Hill consists of a romantic one level home, situated on 1.18 acres of gentle grassy slopes and tropical gardens with fruit trees and flowers, including an active apiary.
Desirable Lower Bay Location
The North Side of Lawler Hill enjoys a prominent location in the sought after Lower Bay area. In an elevated location the property benefits from privacy, but is within great proximity of bars, restaurants, and of course the beautiful white sandy beaches of Lower Bay, Princess Margaret & Friendship. Being in a private residential area there is a lovely peaceful aura with cooling trade-winds & a relaxed ambiance.
The walks to Lower Bay, Princess Margaret and Friendship beaches are not more than ten or fifteen minutes, or take the picturesque coastal path to the harbour
This land is a historical homestead site, settled by one of the earliest families dating back to the 1700’s. The existing foundation was built in the early 1950’s. The present owners, an American and Italian, have lived full time in this home since 1969. They completed extensive remodeling in 1970, and the original roof was replaced in 1989.
“The relationship we have had with this property has been one of love and respect for the land, it’s creatures, the island and it’s people, wishing to leave as small a footprint as possible. We hope to find new owners of the same nature”
