FOR SALE: WESTCOTT TOWERTuesday 14th December 2021
A unique opportunity to purchase one of the few remaining sugar mills in Antigua, originally constructed in 1734 and much modified in the late 1960s by the addition of a platform to the top affording 360° views over the surrounding countryside and nearby ocean.
Known as Westcott Tower, the structure stands in just over 1/3 acre of land and has the potential to be enlarged subject to the necessary consents. Currently used as an office, the tower could equally be developed as a residence.
At present the tower is rather underutilized with the ground floor, measuring around 14 feet in diameter, being used as a storeroom. The first floor is accessed via an external staircase which serves as an entrance hall and stairway to the top floor.
The upper floor, originally designed as an apartment but now used as an office, has accommodation that comprises a living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. The whole is surrounded by a walk-around veranda.
Crosbies is a popular residential area to the north of the capital, St John's, and is only a few minutes drive from the increasingly popular shopping and office area of Friars Hill Road where the main supermarkets, cinema, a selection of bars, restaurants, and other shops, mainly in shopping malls, can be found.
The international airport is about 15 minutes drive and, in the opposite direction, the tourist beaches of the Dickenson Bay area are about ten minutes away.
The converted 18th Century Westcott Tower is being offered in conjunction with an adjacent block of 5 apartments and the two units can be purchased together or separately.
