Property of the week – A family home with space for a big family



While families are fantastic, sometimes it is nice to spread out a little so everyone can have their own space. Nestled on the Agencourt slope in Luganville, this is a superb home with fantastic ocean views and that all-important aspect to catch the cooling breezes that blow in across the water.

With five bedrooms and two large lounges there is room for everyone; approximately 320m2 of living space plus two huge decks, one on each level and both with great views. Walking through this home, it is easy to see that a craftsman built it. The timberwork embraces the best of local hardwoods and the Swiss expertise on its construction ensures that it will last and last. No squeaky floorboards or stairs here! Polished timber floors are a feature throughout and all the timberwork is fitted to the highest standard. Massive laminated beams give clear space in the lounges and the centre pole with its exquisite carvings provides a connection with Vanuatu’s culture. Four of the bedrooms are a generous size, large enough to be doubles and the master bedroom is even larger with generous ensuite and a huge bath. The spacious kitchen has a walk-in pantry and great views which continue through the verandas. One might expect such a home to be expensive, however the owner has moved on and wants it sold, so it is available at well below cost. It is a bargain to be had.
