Set in the Centre of Bayswater Lane on the Clifton Bay canal is a traditional looking home and guest cottage set on a protected Canal with two docks and a boat lift. Looks, However can be deceiving.......
Canal House was built to service one of the large beachfront houses in Lyford and actually houses 3 seperate apartments, (two 2 bedroom apartments and a one bedroom) and was designed as staff accommodation as well as a service and storage area for all types of water craft. What makes it truly unique is its' fully functional squash court
The interior layout offers a large two bedroom apartment on the ground floor with a fully functional eat in kitchen with granite and Corian counter tops along with a generous living room overlooking the canal as well as the Squash Court. On the second floor there is a smaller two bedroom apartment with a full Corian kitchen and more cozy living area. In addition on this level there is Studio with a kitchenette.
The Grounds are perfectly set up for boat storage and a work shop in the garage. The Canal frontage offers ample dockage along with a boat lift capable of cradling a 35 ft centre console.
Canal House was designed to be able to re-create the interior back into a single family home as its' exterior suggests if needed but as a home designed to service a nearby beachfront home it is perfect. Viewings made by appointment.

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 and has two sons, Dylan and Kai.
