Pelican Perch is an eco sensitive home oriented to catch the gentle breezes and give 360 degree views of the sparkling Caribbean Sea. The architect modelled this on a Japanese Haiku Tea house. Its simplicity of design and spacious layout makes it very comfortable to live in.
The main structure is constructed of imported Oregon fir with combed spruce ceilings. The large poles are Oregon trees that have been turned on a giant lathe and pressure treated.
The house has a wrap around deck and screen porch for dining and lounging. The interior wood used on the custom cabinets, gleaming hardwood floors, much of the furniture, and stair railings are made from local Belize hardwoods, selected for their beauty. The main bedroom is on the upper level with a reading den and ensuite bathroom .
The house is designed for wind speeds of up to 150 mph. Each of the 23 poles is mounted on a cubic yard of concrete with re-bar every three inches. The concrete is mounted upon multiple 8-foot pilings driven into the ground.
Windows are casement windows with top quality coastal hardware. The doors and windows open out instead of in which allows the wind pressure to seal them rather than let water into the house. The self-contained water system utilizes multiple filters, including an UV sterilization filter. The main water storage tank holds 22,000 gallons.
In addition to the main home on the sea side, a one bedroom, plus loft home with a two car garage and dock will also be available for purchase. It is presently occupied by the owner’s caretaker and his family and may be purchased at an attractive package price.
