A woodworker’s dream home, this charming cottage combines clean modern lines with West Indian-style open living and hip roofs. The house includes both indoor and outdoor living area, large verandas and decks, a sleeping loft, and modern bath. Equal in size to the main house is a cottage that is used as a downstairs workshop with sleeping loft that could easily be converted into a guest cottage. Located down a peaceful lane in Gingerland, the house overlooks a wide expanse of sea across to Montserrat and little Redonda.
