A Historic Building Sensitively Updated

For over a quarter of a century, this gallery and cafe has stood cheerfully alongside Independence Square, a space of peace and gentle tranquility.

The building itself has an even longer history. This traditional colonial-styled building actually dates back to the 1750s, a history that has been lovingly considered in its recent renovations.

For the past four years, the property has undergone a truly sensitive transformation. The colors throughout are unmistakably Caribbean: cheerful sunshine yellows, soft lilacs and fresh greens share a place with polished wood, flashes of peach shelving and gorgeous ornate chairs lined up to look at the view from tall windows that throw light into the rooms. The garden outside is a wonderful, unexpected hidden oasis full of mature plants – and there is a covered patio along with spacious grassed and local stone terraces.

In the basement lies the heart of a business opportunity: a vast fully-equipped kitchen plus cellar and separate storage area.

It is the network of rooms on the first floor that perhaps provides the first real glimpse that this place could serve as both a home and business simultaneously, or indeed as one or the other. Upstairs is a complete apartment, with a generous living room and a huge bedroom that is more than 24′ x 17′. There is a separate kitchen with a mezzanine level and direct access to a balcony, plus a cosy study and a fitted bathroom.

Fabulous Business Opportunity

Combine these with the four rooms of the ground floor and their views over the garden or Independence Square, and that is quite a home. It is also a fabulous business opportunity. At a time when more and more people are taking advantage of the St Kitts and Nevis digital nomad visas, the property could readily be transformed into an extraordinary co-working venue and as such would be the first of its kind on the islands.

Of course, the combination that has been known and loved for nearly three decades is that of gallery and cafe. There are a multitude of skilled craftspeople on both St Kitts and Nevis and the location of property is within easy strolling distance of the cruise ship terminal. With the possibility of offering both authentic Caribbean charm alongside the wares of local artists, this would make it an essential stopover on any cruiser’s trip to the island.

Given that the home stayed in the same family for over two and a half centuries, this is an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a piece of much-loved Kittitian history with unique possibilities to make a significant contribution to the lives of both islanders and visitors.

Or keep it all to yourself and recreate it in its original glory as one of the grandest homes in Basseterre.
