On December 3, the Leeward Yacht Club will be sold by New York’s Concierge Auctions. Having begun this ambitious project more than ten years ago and completed much of the heavy lifting in terms of development and infrastructure, the club owners are ready to pass the torch to a new proprietor.

Located on the north shore of Black Sound, the Leeward Yacht Club includes 500ft of canal/water frontage, a successful marina, the Lizard Bar and Grill, freshwater pool, tennis court, gift shop and four large homes. Also included are seventeen waterfront and inland plots plus plans for townhouse development.

Thanks to manager and gardening genius Leonard Lowe, the club grounds are lush with oleander, bougainvillea, frangipani and other tropical trees and bushes. Water, electricity, cable, phones and Internet are all in place.

For more information about the December 3 sale of the Leeward Yacht Club, here’s a brochure from Concierge Auctions.

If your tastes run toward historical preservation and a more intimate setting, the New Plymouth Inn may be your ideal investment opportunity. Originally built as a home for wealthy Loyalist merchant, William Gustavus (“Captain Billy”) Roberts and converted to a hotel in the mid-20th century, the property is now a registered historic landmark.
