(CMR) Morganville said it is catering to people with disabilities with a first-of-its-kind inclusive development in the Cayman Islands. Inspired by a promise from a mother to her late son, Morganville provides affordably priced homes featuring modern décor and furnishings that make them physically accessible to all.
“The truth is there are not many options in the Cayman Islands for people with disabilities,. For my son, even something like using the shower was a challenge. So I made him a promise to help change that,” said Morganville owner Mitzi Callan.
Conveniently located in the heart of West Bay at the intersection of Boatswain Bay and Fountain Roads, Morganville features a mix of studio and one-bedroom apartments starting at CI $249,000. A price point eligible for stamp duty waiver for first-time Caymanian purchasers.
“It's important to make homeownership available to everyone, both in terms of physical access as well as financial access,” Callan said.
Each ground-floor apartment is fully ADA-compliant, from the counter height to the bathroom fixtures. While a flight of stairs above, on the second floor, apartments provide a contemporary mix of accessibility features.
Not only are all Morganville units priced under CI $350,000, but they are solar powered to reduce the owner's monthly utility costs. In addition, the units come fully furnished, including everything for daily living, right down to the kitchen utensils.
From first-time buyers to those looking for independent living solutions or real estate investors wanting a turn-key rental, Morganville provides suitable accommodation for all.
“Design, furnishings, and price point, the running theme of this development is accessible accommodation for every person.” said the listing agent, Sebastien Nehme, from Property Cayman.
Property Caymansaid it is proud to bring Morganville to market and shares in the vision to make home ownership a viable reality for all residents of the Cayman Islands regardless of age or ability.
“We launched Property Cayman Cares in 2020. It's a non-profit focused on affordable housing solutions. So the collaboration with Morganville was a natural fit,” said Property Cayman real estate agent Sebastien Nehme.
Morganville broke ground in October 2020 and is on schedule for completion in April 2023.
