This colorful property has stunning views from the 40′ veranda.
Ballyhoo is nestled into a hillside in the quiet residential area of Craigston, formerly a Lime Plantation. Craigston is located about 1.5 miles to the north of the main town of Hillsborough. (See location 1 on Map of Carriacou.) Access is via a twin, concrete track, estate road, leading off the Government maintained road from Hillsborough to Bogles. It has access to two beaches; the wide sweep of Sparrow Bay and the rocky/sandy cove of Tom’s Bay. The land is protected by covenants and there is a very active owners association which purchasers would be required to join.
Ballyhoo is named after a Caribbean fish with a blue/yellow tail which is why the villa is primarily painted blue with a yellow trim. Its hillside location takes advantage of the prevailing cooling trade winds. The stunning views are to the Southwest and West over Hillsborough Bay and the mountains at the South end of Carriacou and includes Jack a Dan and Sandy Island. Ballyhoo sits on 10,180, sq ft of land which has been terraced and a well established tropical garden surrounds the house. There is a pool with a wrap around sun deck and swim shower.
On the main floor there is an open plan kitchen and living area opening onto the 40′ Southwest facing, covered veranda. The villa has two double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms on this level and a twin bedded apartment on the lower level with its own covered veranda. Double doors lead from all the bedrooms onto the covered verandas. In true Caribbean style, Ballyhoo has colourful shutters rather than glazed windows welcoming in the refreshing ocean breezes. The floors are tiled and the walls and living spaces are uncluttered and modern.
