HISTORIC DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY - CARLISLE BAY AREA.Tuesday 24th May 2011
A unique development opportunity, Fort Claremont, with the ruins of the old plantation house, sits on 25 acres of lush hillside land overlooking the pineapple farms, Carlisle Bay and the Caribbean Sea towards Montserrat.
The 6 bedroom plantation house was used in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s for short term villa rentals. For a short period the property was used as a tourist stop and featured and art gallery and restaurant owned and operated by Shipwreck Shops. The property featured in a John Wynn Tyson spoof novel, “So Say Banana Bird”, where legend has it that Admiral Lord Nelson once slept at the plantation house which was fortified by cannons.
The property also has 1 acre of land on Carlisle Bay beach which is approximately 600 meters away. This beach is shared with the peoples of Old Road Village and the up-market Carlisle Bay Club.
The property is ideally suited for development of a Boutique Hotel with 20 or less independent upscale villas. See the Photo Gallery for the maps and some ideas of development. Its close proximately to Old Road Village, Curtain Bluff Hotel and Carlisle Bay Club guarantees one of the friendliest source of trained hospitality staff anywhere in Antigua.
