“It is life, I think, to watch the water. A man can learn so many things.” ― Nicholas Sparks
In exclusivity with Mauritius Sotheby’s International Realty, welcome to the most desirable location on the Marina!
A true oasis on the water’s edge, the ultimate vantage point to observe everyday nautical life in and around La Balise Marina, this 3-bedroom duplex is a pure gem. With outlooks to the West, North, and East, the owners of this dreamy duplex have optimized the unique position with a bespoke, wooden deck, that runs the full length of the property and connects back around to the front.
It’s the perfect setup for entertaining family and friends on the water, and the most effortless, boat-in/boat-out experience one is likely to find. There are 3 en-suite bedrooms, all on the first floor, 2 of which have fabulous views. The extended master suite offers extra closet space, a large en-suite, and a private, sun-filled, balcony for some quiet time.
Downstairs you will find an open plan living room and fully equipped kitchen, a guest WC and store room neatly fitted under the stairs, a scullery and covered outdoor sink & bins area – perfect for drying laundry out of sight.
‘La piece de résistance’ has to be the generous L-shaped deck complete with a private pool, bar, and plenty of place for a large dining table and outdoor seating area. An entertainer’s paradise, this USP really opens up the home, letting in natural light and creating such wonderful space, while still working remarkably well as a lock up and go. Clear, electric roll-down blinds efficiently shield the deck should undesirable weather roll in, while maintaining the unobstructed views of the bay and La Tourelle Mountain.
Built circa 2015 and lovingly maintained by a single owner who has continuously improved on practical aspects and aesthetics which lend such endless charm to this home. Perfect for all lovers of the sea who are looking for a permanent or semi-permanent residence on the warm and calm waters of Black River.
Other enviable features include 3 private berths of 12 to 15M in length, a large boat garage/hanger, and a covered parking bay. If not needed, the pontoons and boat hangers are always in high demand and can be rented out, thereby comfortably covering monthly upkeep and syndic levies.
