Near the waterfront in Boca Chica lies this renovated and fully-furnished house in a small garden just 100 metres from the Marina, less than 5 minutes' walk from the local shop, the petrol station and the newly developing centre of small restaurants, hotels and B&Bs.
Fully titled, it offers income potential, as it has two separate floors with separate entrances and living areas: The ground floor has 3 bedrooms, a living room, a bathroom, a kitchen and two porches. The back porch could easily convert into another bathroom, and still have a large porch.
The upper floor - accessible via external stairs - is styled with a rustic finish - perfect for fishermen who love the touch. The beautiful water view is from this apartment. It consists of 2 bedrooms with one bathroom plus a half bath, a living area, a kitchen and a laundry room. All the bedrooms are air-conditioned.
The house is built with concrete blocks below and wood above.
The house is tax exempt for approximately another 10 years.
As it lies in the mouth of the river, the views of the water and the island Boca Brava are beautiful. A small boat (up to, say 18 ft) could be parked in the front yard and put into the water in the marina. A larger boat could be kept in the marina itself.
Next door is Promises Restaurant, across the street is the Spragge marina.
This property lends itself to a B&B, a rental property (current rentals of the separate apartments fetch: upper 600$, lower 500$ a month) a small fishing lodge, a private vacation or retirement home. With an additional maximum $20,000 you can make this house into a spectacular gem.
Boca Chica is a small village, close to David, on the Gulf of Chiriqui.
There are over 100 islands here, some with beautiful beaches.
