About Buena Vista, Haynes Ave. & Pine Street

Not only does this property possess timeless charm, but it also has a distinguished history. Buena Vista is a grand historic home that dates to the mid 1800’s and tells its own story of bygone times. It has been lovingly restored and modernized, making it fit for contemporary luxury living and an utterly unique investment opportunity. A perfect blend of British colonial architecture and stunning “Caribbean” surroundings, Buena Vista exudes grace and elegance.

The first floor is a wonderful space for family gatherings and entertaining with a gracious living room and salon, a formal, spacious dining room and a chef’s kitchen. A recently added garden room just off the kitchen welcomes peaceful mornings of bird watching and the sounds of nature.

Four bedrooms are located on the second floor, 3 with en-suites bathrooms, and spacious balconies look out at the Harbour and Atlantic Ocean beyond.

The guest house, Peach Cottage, is perfect for visiting family and friends or rentals. It comprises of an upstairs and downstairs apartment. Upstairs is a bright and airy living space with French doors that open to a sunny wrap-around deck. A master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a kitchen with full size appliances including a laundry offers complete independence. The downstairs apartment also consists of an open plan living and dining area, with French doors opening to a private patio. Complete with a kitchen fully equipped with full size appliances the ground floor apartment also has a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and an additional half bath off the living room.

Brand new swimming pool and screened-in area.

The location is just a stone’s throw away and a half mile walk from world famous French Leave Beach. The town of Governors Harbour, a three-minute walk down the hill, has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbour. Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, banks, a bakery and deli and gift shops. Friday Night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.

With such unique character and history, the property would make not only a fabulous “in-town” vacation home but also an ideal rental property.
