Historic Estate for Sale in Curacao

Searching for historic homes for sale in the Caribbean?

Located in the popular Mahaai suburb of Willemstad, this exquisite historical treasure stands as a testament to the Dutch Caribbean’s rich history and architectural grandeur. Listed as a protected monument, this former plantation boasts a two-story colonial country house that dates back to the 18th Century.

Perched centrally on a generous 7,592 square meter estate, the country house offers commanding views of the picturesque Mahaai surroundings. Its classic design, the property of more than 300 square meters is a true reflection of its era, featuring a hipped roof, slanted sections, and a core gallery on both the front and rear facades. Eight baroque adorned roof dormers lend an air of grandeur to the mirrored facades with terraces, the front boasting an inviting 129 m² terrace. Inside, some of the interiors are graced with rustic beamed ceilings, enhancing the historical ambiance.

A Home with a Unique History

What sets this Landhuis apart is its unique history. Unlike many others of its kind, it served as a second home for its original owner, primarily focusing on cultivation for personal use. Later, in the 20th century, the Henriquez family took over and successfully ventured into commercial cultivation. Their contribution included supplying laraha, the exotic fruit essential for crafting the world-famous Blue Curacao Liquor, to the thriving liquor industry in the forties.

Renovations Over the Years

Over the years, this Landhuis has undergone some changes, including renovations introduced by a previous owner. These alterations expanded the layout, incorporating an annex and a covered terrace section, along with a separate building suitable for use as maids’ quarters or storage. The main floor now comprises a total of 16 areas, including the central section and front gallery, while the second floor boasts three bedrooms and an attic.

Secluded Yet Easily Accessible

Despite its elevated position, which provides awe-inspiring vistas and makes it a notable landmark among the neighboring country houses, this Landhuis maintains an air of discreet elegance. Accessible via a private road, secured by a gate and camera system, it offers future owners a touch of seclusion. Additionally, a section of the property connects to the Santa Rosaweg, ensuring convenient access in the future from the main road.

Tax Incentives

Furthermore, this historical gem holds a unique distinction as a protected monument under the care of Monumentenfonds Curacao, bringing several advantages for prospective owners. These benefits include tax incentives and financial support for restoration efforts, making this estate an exceptional investment opportunity.
