The Wildlife River Sanctuary combines all of the reasons we love Belize on 28 acres! The custom designed home perched within the hillside provides unobstructed views of the mountains, wildlife, jungle, and river below. From the moment you pass the gate and begin your drive up the palm-lined driveway, you’ll feel at home. You’ll want to visit the productive pitaya orchard and walk the property on a .25 mile trail while keeping an eye out for the flora and fauna who share the space, before you take the steps carved into the hillside down to the river….You’ll be tempted to toss a line and relax in a shady spot along the 908 feet of riverfront, but there is so much more to see!
Enter the steel frame home, and the foyer will provide a two-story view from inside - to the natural beauty outside. You'll find yourself eye-level with the tree tops, as the home is built into the side of a gorgeous hilltop! On the entry level, you can visit the office/library with door to the yard for fresh air, or venture towards the expansive master suite. The bedroom is a well-planned space, with sunroom, screened lanai, and amazing bathroom with a signature tub design brought from Hawaii. Also on the entrance level step into the newly tiled office floor and marvel at the craftsmanship of the tongue & groove ceiling, also featured in the great room.
Take the Santa Maria wood stairs to the lower level, and enjoy the family/living room open to the newly remodeled kitchen. Two more bedrooms and another large bathroom, plus dehumidified storage room for keepsakes are just beyond the main living space. Step outside and wait for the Kinkajous to come take bananas directly from your hand! Video's available of this and more, let me email them directly to you!
The grounds offer seasonal supplies of mangos, breadfruit, black sapote, sapodillas, avocados, pink grapefruit, cashews, mulberries, pitayas, limes, bananas, and passion fruit. An additional home on the property houses a caretaker and his family, who would be happy to stay, or just show you the ropes. If you are looking for biodiversity, space, and privacy, come explore the Wildlife River Sanctuary! Imagine not being able to see your neighbor’s house from any vantage point, yet living nearby Belmopan, the capitol of Belize. Enjoy natural and cultural attractions, shopping, banks, post office, restaurants, and government offices. Feel like hitting the road? You can plan a day trip up to Mexico for even more diversity in shopping and dining. Stay in touch with folks back home via unlimited high-speed internet, just brought into the area!
