This historic Bahamian house, built in 1840, is situated on the bayside of Dunmore Town on legendary Harbour Island. It’s a great location: a 2-minute walk to the best restaurants on the island, The Landing and Rock House, and a 5-minute cart ride to the famous pink sand beach.
The entire house has been refurbished with upscale furniture from Drexel Heritage and Restoration Hardware, and the beds are Heavenly by Westin from Nordstrom Home. There’s a huge open living area and a custom kitchen equipped with stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances.
The 3 bedrooms, each with its own safe, have baths finished in full height travertine tiles with Kohler hardware. The master bedroom bath has a slipper tub and separate shower.
Enjoy fantastic views from the veranda and a new widow's walk and from several outdoor terraces. The outdoor entertainment area has a bar, a gas grill, and a covered kitchen area. The swimming pool is framed with beautiful landscaping and shaded areas.
Other amenities include:
* a cable TV with DVD and complimentary wi-fi in each bedroom
* a water softener system
* external security cameras and window locks
* a new back-up generator with automatic cut-in to ensure continuous power during outages
