355 Acre Caribbean Peninsula for Sale at $15 Million
A historic 355-acre property in the Dominican Republic called “Manatee Peninsula” was just listed for sale for $15 million. The peninsula has 4.4 miles of pristine beachfront and it’s listing price is even $6 million below a 2008 bank estimate.
This peninsula could be a perfect setting for a dream residence in the heart of the Caribbean and, apart from its beauty, this property also has an important history. Christopher Columbus discovered the peninsula on his second trip to the New World in 1493 and anchored his boats in the lagoon.
The property is just a few minutes away from the original settlement of Columbus, La Isabela, which is considered the first formal European settlement in the New World and it’s now a National Park. This peninsula gets its name from the extensive lagoon filled with playful, gentle manatees.
The 355 Acre Caribbean Peninsula is protected by a 10,000 foot mountain range to the southeast that acts as a natural hurricane shield, making it great for yachts too.
