Located on the highly desirable Fincastle Island in the upscale community of Old Fort Bay on western New Providence, #8 Fincastle is an idyllic family retreat offering more than 14,000 sq. ft. of living space.
The estate features three structures situated on two north and south canal front lots: The main house, the poolside cabana and a guest cottage which includes separate staff quarters.
The main house is a 2-storey residence offering 4 en-suite bedrooms, 3 half bathrooms and a 4-car garage. The breathtaking foyer and spectacular 3-floor grand staircase are indicative of the powerful architectural detail and quality created by master craftsmen.
The use of marble and a wave backsplash reflect a sleek modern aesthetic design in the kitchen. It also boasts a large island, an impressive fridge and freezer with a center beverage tower, double linear stainless sink, two separate bar top seating areas and a whimsical breakfast nook.
The formal dining room is accompanied by a double glass wine display for sophisticated entertaining.
The estate’s ground level has an in-home movie theater, spacious guest bedroom en-suite which features a game room area, and separate patio area. Sweeping vistas of the pool and terrace are viewed from every window. This home was built with entertaining in mind whether indoors, or outdoors. Perhaps the most impressive feature of the home’s generously-sized terrace is the 476-sq.-ft. poolside cabana which includes a bar, kitchen area with grill and a half bath.
Ascending the spiral staircase, on the second-floor landing of this ultramodern oasis you are greeted by a seating area that leads to two spacious bedroom en-suites and the master en-suite. The master has a seating area with mini-bar, his and her vanities, shower, soaking tub and his and her dressing areas with custom cabinetry.
On the third level is a 672-sq.-ft. space that can be easily transformed into additional living space, a home gymnasium or a children’s playroom.
Across the street is the 1,235-sq. ft. guest cottage that echoes the main residence featuring a two bedroom en-suite, living room, kitchen, dining room and two-car garage. An additional room adjacent to this cottage allows for extra living space for staff. The entire guest cottage overlooks a 443-sq.-ft. terrace and a 60-foot dock. This beautiful residence is the perfect investment property offering exceptional rental income potential and qualifies one for Bahamian Permanent Residency, in a favorable tax environment that The Bahamas offers.
Named after Fort Fincastle, a 17th-century fort in Nassau, this private island neighborhood within the Old Fort Bay community offers exquisite canal front living allowing for quick and easy boating access to the crystal-clear waters surrounding Nassau.
