Windwardside, Saba – Historical Cottage for Sale
This is a rare opportunity to acquire an idyllic historical cottage originally built for Captain Thomas Hassell in 1890.
Solid, sturdy and beautiful, the cottage is one of the most celebrated homes on Saba, having appeared in numerous paintings and photographs documenting the island’s architecture.
Many of the original features have been retained while the cottage has been modernized for contemporary living.
Situated at the end of a quaint, very private old lane, the cottage is set in stunningly planted tropical gardens surrounded by vibrant ginger hedges and original stonewalls.
A lichen-covered stone path leads up a set of stairs to a beautiful arched porch with traditional Saban trim.
An elegant veranda runs the width of the cottage – the perfect spot to quietly unwind while enjoying the views of the Caribbean Sea and the historical village of Windwardside.
The interior features open and airy rooms with dark wooden floors, beautifully restored antiques and original stain glass.
The rooms – including the living room, dining room and kitchen with original stone hearth – are unusually large for a home of this period.
The spacious and comfortable master bedroom has a modern bathroom that leads to an outdoor shower.
A lovely study and TV room offer space to relax or work.
A Short Walk to Windwardside
While the cottage offers wonderful privacy, it is just a short walk to Windwardside’s charming amenities.
Room for Expansion
There is plenty of space in the garden to allow for the addition of a pool or additional studio guest cottages if desired.
