Just a few minutes’ walk from Pumpkin Hill Beach, Casa Barbara is a furnished island style house nestled among a variety of indigenous plantings of mango, avocado, lime, lemon, almond, noni, papaya, banana, spinachtree, breadfruit, mamones, coconut, and mamay trees growing on the 0.18 acre lot. The lot is located on quiet cul-de-sac just off the Pumpkin Hill road. Casa Barbara is about a 10 minute drive from Utila Town Center.
The house is built on 2 levels. At the ground level is a concrete slab on which a utilities room containing the electrical breaker panels, water pump, and water pressurization system is located. A smaller lock-up storage room is located next to the utilities room. The storage room could be easily converted to a fourth bedroom.
At the 2nd level is the main living area with 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and open plan combined living, dining, and kitchen area. The main living area is 900 sq ft of enclosed space opening out onto a 6 ft wide porch surrounding all 4 sides of the main living area (1,764 sq ft under roof). This porch is a great location for sipping that early morning coffee while listening to the sounds of the native birds.
Pumpkin Hill is an up and coming area of Utila due to recent Pumpkin Hill road improvements, extension of the electricity grid, and availability of piped water. The property has its own well and a 5000 gallon cistern.
Pumpkin Hill is away from the hustle and bustle of Utila Town Center but easily and quickly accessible by the improved road. The property can be purchased to use as a private dwelling or as an investment rental property. If the storage room is converted to another bedroom or suite it can be used as a separate, smaller rental than the whole house.
