Nestled amidst tropical abundance on 4 acres of land are Coffee River Cottages.  This secluded, self-sufficient, off-the-grid property for sale at Melville Hall awaits you just about one-mile drive from the Douglas-Charles Airport, through the lush banana fields of the Melville Hall Estate, in Marigot, Dominica.  This property available for sale in Melville Hall, Marigot, in the parish of St. Andrew, contains two (2) durably built and artfully designed cottages and a spacious and beautifully laid out 2 floor bungalow of similar high quality construction.  Suffice it to say, this property was standing tall and strong after Dominica was hit by hurricane Maria in September of 2017 with its buildings intact and unaffected by the island-wide outages of utilities.


The main house (bungalow) of this self-sufficient, off-the-grid property is well appointed with open concept kitchen, living and dining spaces with several sleeping areas including a spacious loft.  The living area opens onto a very spacious deck which wraps around most of the main floor and provides a stunning view of the well-manicured grounds, flamboyant gardens and the sparkling clear river.  This building also contains a ground floor apartment measuring approximately 600 sq. ft requiring some minor finishing touches.  This space contains a master bedroom with en-suite, another bathroom with shower in main area as well as a day sitting area with a single bed.  It is also served with an outside deck.  This floor also contains a garage.


Amidst the plethora of plants, fruit trees and flowers sit the two cottages. One cottage measuring approximately 700 sq ft contains an outdoor dining area which is flanked by an indoor kitchen which is open to a lounge area.  This well-appointed lodging also contains two (2) open loft bedrooms and one (1) washroom.   The other cottage is even grander measuring approximately 1,200 sq ft.  It contains two (2) large bedrooms on the ground floor each with en-suite bathrooms, as well as two additional loft-style bedrooms upstairs.  The kitchen area opens to a porch style dining area which takes dining outdoors through the surrounding windows which allows ample view of the attractive garden.


This self-sufficient, off-the-grid property also boasts 4 acres of fertile land.  The property has a well-cared for landscape of beautiful flowering plants, fruit bearing and other trees.  The abundance of trees lends itself to the presence of many precious and stunning species of birds that provide soothing sounds to the occupants of the property.  A walk through the paved paths through the trees leads to the clean and refreshing river which is close enough for a stimulating dip but far enough to not cause damage to the property during storms.


This property for sale at Melville Hall is located about 10 minutes’ drive from the community of Marigot, Dominica and its amenities such as shops, bars, auto-mechanic garage, fire and ambulance service, hospital, schools, barber shop, beaches, fisheries complex, restaurants, churches, fresh food farms/market, credit union, recreational facilities etc.  Marigot is approx. 55 minutes from the main capital – Roseau.  It is approx. 45 minutes from the second town of Portsmouth.


A mixture of art, flamboyance, eclecticism, resilient construction and practicality lies within this self-sufficient, off-the-grid property in Melville Hall, Marigot, Dominica.  An excellent property for someone looking for a sophisticated and private residence or a discerning investor seeking a budding hospitality business. Which one are you?
