Located on the Eastern end of the island, in the exclusive gated community of Port New Providence, this stunning canal front home is a dream offering for a family who enjoys spending time on the water. Commanding 141.67 square foot of canal frontage, the idyllic property features a 35-foot boat dock which can accommodate a vessel of up to 60 feet, with a boat lift which can accommodate up to 16,000 pounds.
Offering five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, the home is decorated in a style which seamlessly combines modern flair with colonial charm. The use of natural materials in a contemporary yet traditional island setting is a sight to be admired in the wrap-around verandahs, intricate decorative railings and the use of plantation shutters.
At the center of the home a bright and spacious living room with timbered ceilings is flooded with natural light spilling through a series of French doors. This theme of natural light continues throughout the property with an abundance of windows and glass doors, each fitted with hurricane shutters. This room also boasts recessed ceiling lighting and elegant crown molding, features which are seen throughout the home.
The spacious kitchen is both beautiful and practical. Here ceramic tiled counter-tops and splash-backs meet hurricane impact windows and a full range of integrated appliances, including an American style double door refrigerator and a cooking hob. Commanding the center of the room is a spacious island which offers plenty of preparation space, making cooking convenient and pleasurable.
Each of the 5 bedrooms feature tray ceilings, all are impeccably designed and finished with fine attention to detail. Complete with a large walk-in closet, the master suite is exceptional with a grand main room and private balcony access. Meanwhile, the en-suite master bath is designed on an open-plan and features double corona topped vanities, a double glass shower stall, and a luxurious roman bathtub, positioned to enjoy views across the gardens.
The exterior of the property is just as graceful and appealing as the interior. In addition to the spacious wrap-around verandahs with outdoor dining and seating space, the property features a beautiful lagoon style pool with surrounding decking, all a short stroll from the dock. The entire area benefits from gentle sea breezes, a precious commodity in the summer months.
Located just minutes from the renowned St Andrews School, in close proximity to a brand-new food store, and just a short drive from several dining options, this home is ideally located for family living. The location is also just 26 miles from the beautiful Exumas, allowing you to set off right from your back door to an ideal spot for those weekend and holiday getaways with the family.
