Arroyo Barril Estates – $669,000 – Samaná
Arroyo Barril Estates consists of 5 residential parcels of land overlooking the Bay of Samaná on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic. Two of the parcels have a combined water frontage of 100 meters. All parcels can be combined to form one family estate, or as an alternative, be used individually as a corporate compound containing 5 separate villas. The total site contains 30,409 square meters which is the equivalent of 7.52 acres. The sizes of individual parcels can be viewed in the chart below.
The property is well-maintained and is in a friendly and protected neighborhood. It has Clear Title with Deslinde. The waterfront is well suited for a boat dock and swimming platform. There is a sandy beach during low tide and a stone wall prevents any soil erosion with a tide of only a foot or so.
The site has numerous plateaus for construction or amenities and the entire slopes gently down to the waterfront. This allows for terracing to maximize water views from nearly every spot on the property. Lots 1 and 2 start from the waterfront and rise 10 meters to the rear of the property. The picturesque beach is lush with colorful plants and lots 1 & 2 are ideal for building a villa and swimming pool with direct access to the beach. The east side of the property is lined with a small creek with clean spring water. Lots 3 and 5 have long frontage on the access road and are wooded with coco and other trees. These lots are the highest part of the property and have scenic views of Samaná Bay. Lot 4 has an independent path from the access road.
The beach has a wild attractiveness and is shaded by mango, almond and sea-grape trees. A solid stone-wall has been built on the shore to prevent the erosion of the land and has proven to be very effective. A perpendicular wall has been built into the water on the west side to enhance the accumulation of sand. The beach on the east side of the property has a thin layer of pebbles, but the west side of the property is primarily sandy. The entire beach area can be greatly improved with some cleaning and minor dredging. A boat dock could also be installed on the east side of the property to protect and preserve the swimming area on the remainder of the beachfront.
