Expats, Retirees rejoice! This listing offers you the opportunity to escape to a place where you can live a simpler less stressful life like a king in a Caribbean paradise for far less than you can ever imagine.
If you are looking for a big-city atmosphere, where traffic at rush hour is bumper-to bumper for several minutes, a home from which you can hear the bedroom conversation of your next door neighbor, then this property probably just isn’t the right fit for you. However, if a 3 bedroom 2 bath concrete house siting on a 17 acres plot is of interest to you, then you may want to read on.
As you enter the ground floor the generously proportioned interior flows effortlessly from the open-plan living/dining area into a kitchen decked with solid mahogany hardwood custom cabinets, a pantry, a cleverly concealed storage space under the staircase, laundry room, two very spacious bedrooms and a bathroom with an easy access shower stall. In addition there is an inviting, enclosed, elongated 168 square foot front porch. To round it off for the ground floor there is also an attached garage measuring 12 feet by 28 feet or 336 square feet of parking space. All in all, the total under roof space of the ground floor is 1288 square feet. By any measures, this is more than adequate space for any retired couple.
However, there is an additional 784 square feet of living space on the second floor which is access via the internal staircase. At the top of the stairs you will find a huge master bedroom and bath, a kitchenette, as well as an extremely spacious sitting area with loads of windows allowing natural light and air to flow in.
The building is approximately 3 years old. All the interior doors are custom made solid mahogany. The external doors are all steel frame metal thus providing an extra sense of security, as well as protection from the weather. The windows are all fitted with security bars. The walls of the structure which are designed to stand the test of time are all constructed from cavity-filled 6 inch reinforced masonry blocks, thus giving that sense of comfort that this building will last for generations to come.
Adding more value to this property is a detached 14 feet by 24 feet caretaker or guest concrete bongolow house as well as a detached 10 feet by 10 feet generator house. Water is supplied to the property from the private underground well on the premises and electricity from a diesel generator which can easily be complemented with wind and solar. High speed internet, cable and dish TV are all readily available.
The town of Corozal is only 4 miles away and the big-city lifestyle with all the Americans names such as Sams Club, Walmart, Malls of America, Burger King, McDonalds, Applebees and the likes are all in the bordering municipality of Chetumal which is a mere 20 mins drive from this property.
To top it off, the property is situated within the perimeters of a village along the main northern highway which connects Belize with Mexico. Unlike big towns and cities, a village life lends itself to a sense of community, environment and atmosphere where you could truly live life the way it used to be growing up some 40 to 50 years ago.
In sum, if you are seeking to retire in a community where you can quickly and easily integrate with the locals and connect with existing retirees and expats, where cost of living is at its lowest, and where world-class shopping and quality health care are well within a 30 minutes reach; then certainly it seems that this property is the right fit for you.
Having mentioned all the above, there is however a risk. Properties such as these with high value and low cost don’t last long on the market. From the almost 2 decades that I have been in real estate, I can assure you that this listing won’t be on the market for very long.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
