Belize 405 Acre Shrimp Farm with Custom Home in Mango Creek
MLS # MPB102109P
The Cardelli Shrimp Farm is located in Mango Creek which is the largest piece of land available with access to the Placencia Lagoon. As you drive into this 405 Acres property it does not take long to realize that this was once a high production, profitable Shrimp Farm and well planned out. With high dikes built between each of the six, 25-acre ponds. The ponds have been dry for 2+ years but they could be re-activated in short order, as the massive pumping station located at the river has been kept in working order.
Located on the first floor of this 3000 + Sq Ft custom two-level home is a large space used as an office/workroom, laundry, spare bedroom. It houses the new Tesla Solar System that provides all electricity to the home. The main level is set up with a massive bathroom, with multiple toilets, sink, shower, and dressing area. The main living space has a large open, vaulted ceiling great room / kitchen, with separate dining room. A hallway leads you to 2 guest bedrooms, bath and the Master Suite.
There are 2 structures besides the main house. One is a multi-level building that served as a bunkhouse and the 2nd building is a managers house. The buildings are located close by to the river entrance and pumping station, and at one time was used as boat access to the Placencia Lagoon.
The owner who has been in the Shrimp Farming business for almost 50 years, has offered assistance and training, to get the Shrimp Farm back in operation, with upgrades to expand the science and operation/development of the farm. In an industry that was once thriving in Belize, it is making a comeback, and has the potential to become thriving and a good investment again.
If you do not want to keep it as a shrimp farm you can also develop it into a Coconut Farm, Tilapia Farm or even a Solar Farm, let your imagination guide you.
