There are many more details to learn about, however, first let us look at the property overall.
It is located on beautiful Aore Island just minutes across the Segond Canal from the main island of Espiritu Santo.
The owners, Mal and his wife, chose it because it has great elevation, because it is sheltered from the strong winds (yet still gets nice breezes) and, importantly, because it has deep water frontage to the Channel across its lovely beach area.
Moreover, the specific choice was because of the property’s close proximity to the facilities of the main town, Luganville, across the Channel, coupled with the inherent peacefulness and privacy of this lovely rural based island.
There is 45 metres of shaded water frontage on this property, and Mal has constructed a substantial but nevertheless picturesque boatshed at the high-water mark to house the utility all weather boat. The associated slipway has an efficient electric winch system so that boat launching and retrieval is a simple one man process.
Lovely gardens sweep up to the cottage which has a very spacious, airy and uncluttered bedroom of 6 X 4 metres and which also accommodates Mal’s little computer nook. The living area is more spacious still, and all is set strategically at the top of the slope so that you can enjoy the quite fantastic views – views that in most places are simply unaffordable.
Mal has constructed a separate laundry that is not only exceptionally utilitarian but also quite lovely. A hard claim for a laundry, I know, but wait till you see this delightfully located and appointed room with its local timber finishing and built in rosewood furnishings.
Mal has recently installed a very efficient solar hot water system to augment the Renai Infinity gas system already installed. It provides three options for hot water – solar only – gas boosted solar – and gas only; truly a system for all seasons.
A substantial and spacious workshop and garage houses the vehicle which goes with the property as well as the tools, garden implements and all the extras that one gathers. There is a power room at one end and an associated high quality diesel/inverter generator which backs up the solar power system.
There is already a guest bathroom in a shady area of the garden of this generous 2,978 square meter property which has been provided as a precursor to a proposed Garden Fare (guest bedroom) which has not yet been constructed.
All the unused area has lovely ornamental plants with a strong influence of hibiscus, but as well there are bananas, avocados and pawpaws already well established with mangoes on the way.
This property is completely “walk in walk out”. It includes the near new aluminum boat with canopy for your water transport, whilst the road vehicle has a very substantial American designed dune buggy base (1100 cc EFI) that has been upgraded in the Jeep tradition to be a uniquely suitable island vehicle.
