If you’re the type of person who adores being close to water, then this beautiful duplex in Black River, Mauritius should definitely be on your most wanted properties list!

This sought-after home is on the market for $1.275 million. Featuring three bedrooms, one bath, and three partial baths, at first one may not understand why the hefty price tag. But step inside and we’ll show you why…

The main floor has a lovely flow to it thanks to the open-concept-- bringing the kitchen, living and dining room together. The dining area boasts enough seating for eight thanks to comfy armchairs and benches. The living room features exposed wooden beams on the ceiling and lots of natural, subdued shades, plus plenty of wooden touches such as the stunning driftwood coffee table laid with a glass pane.

The kitchen keeps with the same theme with light-colored cabinetry and cream counter tops. Informal meals may be had right here in the warm comfort of the home’s heart thanks to three bar stools.

Just past the floor-to-ceiling windows is the private patio featuring teak flooring, a plunge pool and plenty of spots to sit for a chat or sunbathe.

Up a flight of stairs and you’ll find the three bedrooms. The master bedroom is flooded with natural light and even has its own private jacuzzi tub adjacent to the bed.

The rest of the home features similar raw yet elegant deco such as another driftwood table and nightstand in the hallway.

But the best view, and the major reason why this property is as pricey as it is, has to be the spectacular view just steps from your patio: the marina. With access to the marina, trips to and from the city via the water are easy and stress-free.
