Excellent location for residential, tourism, harvesting, or other purpose.
10 acres of land on the Arenal Road, 1.5 mile out of Benque Viejo del Carmen, Cayo District. There is a pond; about 8 acres are maintained, including a driveway path to the orchard, while the other two acres have low trees nice for small wildlife spotting and nature walks. Coconut, avocado, banana, craboo, mango, lemongrass, and other productive and decorative plants are on the property.
About half acre of the estate is developed as a residential area surrounded by an inner enclosure. A cute fixer upper, this two-story concrete and wooden building, connected by an interior stairway, is comprised of two bedrooms, one bathroom with shower, kitchen / dining room, living room, and enclosed verandah. The second building, of concrete, can be used as a kitchen, if desired. The third structure, of concrete and wood, can be used as a laundry room. There is a fourth cement foundation half of which used to serve as a latrine (outhouse), while the other half can be used as a storeroom or generator room. Other features of the residential area are a mini pond with cement walkways around it and space in between for gardening; two round cemented spaces for gardening; and a structure for the placement of your favorite deity, and flowers.
Special features of the area include wonderful views of the Maya ruin Xunantunich (Maiden of the Rock), of the hills, and of Benque Viejo Town. This breezy property is near the Western Free Zone and on the road to the Chalillo Dam. Tourism activities that can be easily developed include trips to the Mayan Ruins, bicycle rides, tubing and swimming in the river, visits to tourism sites in el Peten, Guatemala and in Belize.
