This is a beautifully landscaped, well-maintained countryside mansion with distant sea views and six acres of good agricultural land, that bounds with the Black Bay River.

Located at Herelle, just 3 minutes' drive inland from the quaint fishing village of Laborie, on St Lucia's Caribbean south-west coast, and a mere 12 minutes' from shops, banks, the hospital and the international airport, this is ideally suited both as a private estate, or a countryside inn. It could easily be transformed into a guesthouse with on-site restaurant, serving up fresh organic produce from its own gardens.

The main building is made up of two stories, with a main residence upstairs. The main part contains four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, separate dining area, large living room, office space and balconies all along both the front of the house and the rear, giving wide open views of the countryside hills and valleys, as well as the Caribbean and Atlantic ocean in the distance.

On the ground level, we find one 1-bedroom/1 bathroom apartment with a living room and kitchen, one 2-bedroom/1 bathroom apartment with kitchen and living room, and one studio with a bathroom and kitchen.

There are also a drive-in garage, a separate workshop and, separate from the main house, there is nicely designed gazebo which offers great views, and a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the long, tropical evenings. Closer to the road is an old wooden house, which is now mostly used for storage of agricultural supplies.

The entire property is served with a strong breeze from the prevailing trade winds which funnel through the Herelle/Banse Valley. The land is walled off on the road side, with a beautifully-tended large courtyard area full of mature fruit trees, colourful shrubs and flower beds, lending the property the character of a botanical garden. The gardens continue at the rear of the house, with countless more fruit-bearing trees and shrubs, and beds of vegetables, ground provisions and other crops including mangoes, coconuts, cashews, a variety of citrus fruits, love apple, and many others. This is obviously very good soil.

While the centre of the 6 acres is a little steep, the lower end is once again gently sloping. The river at the bottom runs with water year-round, and is full of large stands of tropical bamboo.
