It is in use as a fully equipped guesthouse for family and friends. But could easily be used as an Airbnb.
Downstairs there is a spacious garage for two cars and a grease pit for diy car maintenance, but could be used as a workshop as well. There is also a laundry with Miele washing machine and dryer, a bathroom with toilet and shower and a pantry for storage.

For a period of one year, that is from September 1, 2020, to end of , 2022, the fees related to transferring or purchase of land are as follows:
- Stamp Duty 2 percent
- Judicial Fee 1 percent
- Assurance Fund 2 percent
- Solicitor’s fee – a maximum of 1 ½ percent.
A total of 6 ½ percent on the value of the property will be paid by the buyer instead of the 10 ½ percent which is currently payable.
According to Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, this will result in a 48 percent reduction in fees associated with land transfer for the buyer or receiver. The fee payable by the vendors/sellers of properties will remain at 2 ½ percent.
Now is a pretty good opportunity for buyers to take advantage. 👍💯
