A truly rare piece of waterfront real estate in Belize with approx 1,159 feet of riverfront and 50 acres lush, natural rainforest with solid, high ground. This unique opportunity represents one of the last remaining large riverfront acreages on the Sittee River; a magnificent, deep-water river that boast some of the tallest mangroves in the entire Neotropical realm (spanning from North to South America) and the tallest ever recorded in all of the Caribbean.
The property is located on the southern banks of the Sittee River in the Freetown Area, roughly 7.5 miles off the Southern Highway down All Pines Road. A short trip across the water will get you to the Sittee River Road and puts you just about a mile and half from the seaside tourist haven of Hopkins Village. There you will find a host of restaurants and shopping centers for your everyday needs as well as the vibrant beach resort destination know as Jaguar Reef, which gives you a feature rich recreational destination that offers a variety of attractions including beach bars, cafés, gym facilities, charming open air nightclubs and other enjoyable leisure facilities.
At 50 acres in size the property is large enough to provide both residential and commercial opportunities and a magnitude of privacy in an area of the country that is rich in biodiversity and teeming with wildlife. The river itself provides a great opportunity for fishing snook, snappers and more. It is wide enough and deep enough to handle medium to large scale vessels and gives you a beautiful 7 mile boat ride from the property out to the Caribbean Sea. With over 1,150 feet along the river, you’ll have ample waterfront to build an extensive dock for multiple boats and a great interior location that would provide protection from storms and gives you an easy launchpad for the quick jump across to the northern banks. Towering cohune palms are scattered throughout the property along with naturally growing breadfruit and citrus trees.
Dubbed the “Sittee River Rainforest Escape” by the team here at Vista, this exceptional property offers a unique investment opportunity to create a truly exciting riverfront destination for paying guests or a secluded, private getaway for select friends and family.
