The former Billinglsey farm will soon see 18 new homes built as the Sunset Cove subdivision.
Sometimes referred to as "Windy Acres" these 4.8 acres next door to the Torrey Smith Recreation Park are being prepared for new home construction. There will also be a wetlands conservation area, a homeowner's association and a common area for use by residents.
Six of the eighteen lots will be waterfront and another six lots will enjoy a water view of Monroe Bay and some of the best sunsets anywhere.
Here is a site plat showing how the lots will be laid out as well as the square footage of each individual lot. Most of them will be accessible by Sunset Cove Drive, Road, Street, or whatever they end up naming it. The remaining three will apparently be accessible from Livingstone Street.
For awhile, the entire acreage was listed for sale as one parcel with Sotheby's real estate and had an asking price set at around $2 million, although the price fluctuated at times. That would have made one heck of a private waterfront compound for someone.
No word yet about a pier or dock for the residents of the subdivision to enjoy. Hopefully this amenity will be added.
The existing vintage farmhouse on the property will be dismantled as it is no longer structurally sound.
This project has been in the works for fifteen years with the investors of CB Equity Partners, LLC. The individual lots are expected to be for sale on the market in the Spring of 2021 with prices still to be determined.
