The 21 acres are located at the summit of the Hummingbird Highway in St. Margaret’s Village, Cayo District. Get up in the morning and completely enjoy the scenery around you.

Presently the property consists of 12 acres of cleared and cultivated land, 9 acres of jungle property, a Plett’s wooden home, along with a caretaker house, a washing station out-building.
6 of the 12 acres has been planted with an amazing variety of local and exotic fruit trees including dozens of moringa trees (expected to be available for leaf and seed pod harvesting in a couple of years). Moringa grows very quickly in this area of Belize and has been identified as a superfood for all its nutritional and health benefits. Additionally, mango, cacao, raspberry plants have been started giving this property a good head start for the new owners. And along with banana, plantain, ginger it is possible to start earning from the property pretty much immediately.
There is a clean river/creek that bisects the 12 and 9-acre parcels with deep enough “pools” to allow for comfortable swimming.
The 9-acre jungle side has been left in its natural state as the current owners were looking to do yoga with a more indigenous feel. As the new owners, the choice is up to you on whether or not you leave it untouched.
Around the property, you will have and enjoy many plants including but not limited to banana and plantain trees, ginger plants, other tropical flowers, and orchids. It really does look like a place you want to get away to.
The Plett’s constructed house has been installed on 9-foot posts to allow for maximum airflow. And because of this height, there is a completely functional space below the house. Lots of windows allow for natural light and airflow throughout.
Inside the house are 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and an open kitchen/living space. A deck is built outside the front door as well as off the master bedroom.
The home is nicely finished with cabinets built by local artisans. There is an open concept ceiling which allows for heat to rise as well as better airflow. And coupled with Belizean hardwoods being used throughout you will truly enjoy living in this house.
There is the utility room which has been bricked off against the elements. Another area has been set up as a small seedling/plant nursery. And still another area is allocated as workspace. And because the entire area below has been enclosed with screening you will have a more comfortable workspace.
The property is fully serviced with electrical service brought in from the road, a well has been dug on the property and the septic tank has also been completed. It is possible to get internet as well at this location.
And remember it is 21-acres and move-in ready.
For $299,000 USD it can be yours.
