Indigo Bay, Grand Cayman
Affordable, oceanfront living in South Sound
Words by Natasha Were.
If you thought an upscale oceanfront home was simply beyond your budget, think again. At Indigo Bay, a new residential development in South Sound, stylish three-bedroom beach abodes start at just CI$1 million.
"If you look at similar properties on Seven Mile Beach, you won’t find anything of this calibre for under $2 million," says David Nelson, president of Charlton Developments Ltd "Indigo Bay offers truly affordable luxury - and in a fantastic oceanfront location. It’s the best value property you will find on Grand Cayman."
Pre-construction prices are even more attractive as early purchasers pay stamp duty on the current value of the land only, potentially adding up to savings of CI$65,000 or more.
REDUCED OPERATING COSTS
It’s not only the purchase price that is low: a variety of sustainability measures also keep running costs down at Indigo Bay. Built with Insulated Concrete Forms, the townhouses are highly insulated from the outset. Add to this air-conditioning systems with excellent SEER ratings, energy-efficient appliances and a solar array on each roof producing $400 worth of power per month and owners can expect pleasingly low utility costs.
Strata fees will equally be reduced thanks to solar-powered lighting in communal areas, a saltwater filtration system for the pool, low-maintenance, drought tolerant landscaping, and rainwater harvesting for irrigation.
LOCATION & LIFESTYLE
Indigo Bay’s location on the shores of the calm, sheltered Crawl Bay, at the eastern end of South Sound, brings you the best of both worlds. Here, you can wake up to ocean views and return home to fabulous sunsets, relax in the lushly landscaped private park, picnic under the palms, cool off in the 100-foot pool, and use the private dock as a launching pad for your boating, kayaking and paddle boarding adventures.
All this, and it's only a 10-minute commute into George Town, while the shops, restaurants and recreational facilities of Grand Harbour are just over the road. Could there be a more convenient location?
With floor heights between 11 and 22 feet above sea level, a 9-foot seawall, ICF walls and impact-resistant glass, Indigo Bay meets the 2017 Cayman Island Building codes for hurricane-resistant design.
