Once part of Concordia cocoa estate located at the top of the hill overlooking Scarborough, Tobago’s capital town, this property lies on a ridge with views west across forested hills, distant sea views, and on a clear day, Trinidad can be seen on the south-west horizon. Perfect for a peaceful retirement or family home! Set in two and a half acres of fenced, sloping land, the driveway is lined with towering royal palms, and a small forest of mature, bromeliad-covered specimen trees including samaan, and both pink and yellow poui. On the grounds are fruit trees including lime, grapefruit, paw paw, mango, banana, pineapples and avocado. On the right side of the driveway at the edge of a tree-shaded section of the garden lies an unfenced pool 32’ x 16’ with surrounding deck and a maximum depth of 5’ 6”. The bungalow was built in 1964 by a former US Ambassador to Japan who chose Tobago and Windy Edge to build his retirement home on what might have been the site of an 1800s Great House. Despite its age, the bungalow has been very well maintained and is a popular holiday home for large families or groups. Accommodation comprises 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, spacious and high-ceilinged living and dining areas, a fitted kitchen and essential covered wrap around verandah onto which all rooms in the house open, naturally merging indoor and outdoor living. The covered verandah also provides spacious outdoor lounging and dining with room for a ping-pong table. The main wing offers three bedrooms and the side wing has two ensuite bedrooms and the laundry room, accessed by the covered verandah. All rooms are fitted with a ceiling fans. No air-conditioning is provided due to the breezy location of the house and the metal windows can remain open for maximum air circulation with security. A corridor off the living room leads to the first of three bedrooms which shares a bathroom with the second ensuite bedroom across the corridor. The master bedroom with ensuite bathroom lies at the end of the corridor and is very spacious and flooded with natural light from sliding glass doors on both sides of the room. The building is solid concrete construction, traditional terrazzo tiled floors, louvre windows, and color-clad Aluzinc roofing. Built almost 60 years ago, the house is typical of its era and would benefit from selective renovations, but over the past 12 years the following upgrades were done : new roof, re-wired and re-plumbed throughout, two separate hot water systems installed to feed both wings separately, all bathrooms upgraded, kitchen redesigned with teak cupboards and arch into dining area, aluminium louvre windows with mesh netting installed throughout. By end 2023 verandah ceilings will have been repainted, and routine repair work done on the pool which was last surfaced in 2011. There are two underground water cisterns in addition to two large surface tanks installed 5 years ago. The house is being sold furnished ‘as is’ and equipped for rentals. The experienced housekeeper would be willing to work with new owners. Since the Vendors are not resident in T&T, the purchase price must be paid in a foreign currency due to the inability of the T&T banks to provide forex for wire transfer of funds.
