This iconic First Lagoon property, set on a beautifully landscaped 6,300 m2 site, is perhaps Port Vila's premier lagoon front property. Located near the mouth of the First Lagoon, this property provides a panoramic view of the entire lagoon to the distant mountain range beyond. The original two storey home, naturally cooled year round by the prevailing south easterly trade winds blowing across the lagoon, has been very well maintained over the past forty years and features an open plan design, with light and airy rooms, and full length covered terracing on both levels.
A more recent guest house built at the other end of the property has it's own title, private beach and driveway access. A small jetty off the main home's terrace allows for easy boat access, and shallow water along the pristine foreshore of the property provides convenient and safe swimming access for all ages. This area is a watersports lover's paradise - water skiing, sailing, fishing, paddle boarding, and kayaking are all possible here - or why not join Port Vila's rowing club at the other end of the lagoon?
This glorious property has always been used as a private family residence, however (subject to planning permissions) the existing main home would be ideal for conversion to a restaurant with a stunning over the water location. The guest house could very easily serve as an on site manager's house and office, and the unused part of the land provides a mature lagoonside development site for holiday apartments or a boutique resort - or simply another two prestige homes. Port Vila's international airport is to be upgraded to wide body, long haul jet capacity, allowing direct flights from Asia, a development the Vanuatu Government hopes will spur the construction of urgently needed new tourism accommodation.
The neighbouring lagoonfront property of 6,220 m2, belonging to a different owner, is also currently for sale, which, if combined with this wonderful property, would offer a total land area of 12,520 m2 (3 acres) to any ambitious developer looking for a truly outstanding waterfront site, only a few minutes drive from Port Vila's town centre.
