Constructions:
Originally built in 2011, the ground level is of masonary block and concrete construction with a timber frame at the second level. Enclosed space totals 460 sq ft with 9 ft wide open but covered porch at the second level. Behind the house is a 168 sq ft lock up storage shed.

The house was originally home to Chez Lola, a popular open-air French Restaurant in Utila. The ground floor was used as the Kitchen, Bar and bathroom facilities for the Restaurant. The Owners of Chez Lola lived on the 2nd floor - which is an open plan area with dividing partition.

The Owners of Chez Lola then decided to start a conch pearl business and the remanents of the conch farming trenches remain on the property but can be filled in at a minimal cost.

Land:
A significant portion (approximately 2/3rd's) of the 1.41 acre property is wetlands. The Owners of Chez Lola were intending to use this area as a freshwater shrimp farm.
