Our end of the New Plymouth settlement is looking great these days. In addition to the two new houses that have been built nearby, we were thrilled to see that the house around the corner from Fish Hooks has been beautifully refurbished.
As often happens on the out islands (and as was the case with Fish Hooks), the original owners of the home had passed on, and their children had moved away for work or to start families.
Time and weather had not been kind, and the house looked as if it might soon be beyond repair.
Then, this past spring, we heard that the property had been sold. Tom and I hoped that the buyer would restore the home, rather than demolish it. When we arrived last week, we were surprised to see that not only had the new owner chosen to preserve the structure, but that the work had already been done.
Hard to believe this is the same house, isn’t it?
The newly renovated home is gorgeous and, more importantly, it’s one more historic New Plymouth house saved.
There are several other old island homes on the island in need of some TLC. If you’d like your own piece of Green Turtle Cay history, contact Green Turtle Real Estate.
