A world of wonder awaits you on your own Private Island that is poised for your vision to become a reality and turn a diamond in-the-rough into a masterpiece.
Situated in the bay between North Eleuthera and Harbour Island this 3.5 acre private island is conveniently located just 2 miles from the North Eleuthera airport and Less than a mile to Harbour Island itself. Third Cay is surrounded on three sides by deep water with a concrete pier on the north side and a wooden dock on the south.
Third Cay was originally developed in the 1960's and has a cottage pathways mature trees, two Docks and a storage house. The main house in in a state of disrepair and needs complete refurbishment or to be raised. The beauty of buying an island that was previously developed is that the buildings are already there and it is much easier to get planning permission for a building modification and work on the island than it is on a virgin island.
Another great feature of the island is that it is supplied with power from North Eleuthera. This means that the challenge of creating power on an island does not exist on Third Cay which makes the ability to care for an island that much simpler.
Third Cay also has a proven track record for a solid investment as it has two sister islands next door and although smaller is size have been re-developed and sold for as much as $4,000,000!
If you are in the market for a private island, don't miss the opportunity to view this cay. It is truly an enchanting retreat waiting for your personal touch.

Real Estate Agent : John Christie
John Christie was born on November 10, 1963. He attended St. Andrew's School in Nassau and later The Millfield School in Somerset, England, where he received his "O" and "A" Level exams. In 1987 he graduated with a B. A. in Music and Social Science from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. After graduation, John spent six years living in Northampton and Boston, running a small moving business and pursuing a career in music where he was the lead for a successful band, "The Floating Boats", that performed throughout the northeastern United States. In 1993 he returned to The Bahamas to join H. G. Christie Ltd., where his father, Peter, is President. The first task that John set himself was to update all technology being used by the firm. An early believer in the power of the Internet, he then spearheaded the creation of a website for the company and, in 1995, H. G. Christie Ltd. became the first local real estate firm to go online. For many years, this site was the only one of its kind to be interactive, allowing users to search through the company's extensive portfolio of properties. Today, www.hgchristie.com -- which has more than 2,400 listings and is updated daily -- has become a crucial component of the firm's business. In 2003, the site swept the First Annual Bahamas Web Awards, taking home the coveted Best of The Bahamas Award, the Best Programmer Award, and the Judges top prize in the Non-Tourism category. John is currently overseeing HGChristie's continuing expansion in the Out Islands of The Bahamas, which his great uncle -- the founder of the company, Sir Harold George Christie, K.T., C.B.E. -- did so much to promote during his lifetime. John is a fully licensed real estate broker and has served as Director of the Bahamas Real Estate Association (BREA), where he continues to take professional courses. A skilled photographer, John shoots many of the pictures for HGChristie's website and additional promotional materials. His other hobbies include sailing, hiking and snow skiing. John lives in Nassau with his wife Agnieszka and their two young sons, Dylan and Kai.
