About this property
A charming well-built family home on picturesque Luke Forbes Dr in Newlands is now available to purchase. Built around 1988 and always owner occupied until they passed a couple of years ago. This home has been empty since then and is being sold by the Estate. The 1700 sq ft residence with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, sited on .29 acres is structurally sound but is in need of updating and some TLC. Luke Forbes Drive is a secondary road accessing a small quiet neighborhood off Hirst Road and only a block from the By-Pass entrance. It's backyard is surprisingly large and one sideyard has a cistern. The Carport could easily become a garage, a 4th bedroom, and/or a laundry room. The home is full of solid good quality furniture which will remain. This home is a 3 minute drive and easy access to the Countryside/Country Corner Shopping area with a well regarded Medical Clinic, Fosters Super Market, AL Thompson Hardware, Subway, Chicken Chicken, Cimboco, Cafe del Sol, Veterinary Clinic/Pet Store, Gym and a host of other fine shops which will fulfill all your shopping requirements. The reasonable pricing at CI$ 429,000 should allow for the bulk of the required updating within the current market value of this type of property, making this residence even more attractive. It would be a great first home purchase for a growing family or a place for Empty Nesters to consider.

Don’t shop around — shop here. Savannah has become an increasingly popular area for families in recent years, especially after the completion of Countryside Shopping Village. Only a 20-minute drive from George Town and close to schools and shopping, this area not only has clothes, but properties of all sizes and varieties. Ocean side, you will find stunning homes perched on the iron shore overlooking the dramatic south facing views. Savannah is also home to Pedro’s Castle and the Agricultural Grounds. This general area is reasonably priced and appeals to young families and those looking for an affordable new-build option — this spot is sure to grow with its new residents as they do.
A short drive out of Savannah, you will come upon the sleepy seaside village of Bodden Town, known for its history as the Island’s first capital, a favourite amongst locals. Bringing a sense of adventure to paradise, Bodden Town features several guest houses for holidaymakers, pirate caves and a world-class restaurant with water deck dining. This quiet neighbourhood has many treasures to unpack; and is as rich in history as its pirate slinging past would have you believe.
