Wonderfully reminiscent of dignified, large estate properties of times gone by, Owl's nest is a graceful Bahamian style home. The house is set amidst 6.3 acres of land studded with mature tropical trees that stretch from sea to pond, with a truly exceptional 389 feet of glorious ocean beach frontage in exclusive Double Bay.
Designed to take advantage of the lovely setting, it is a comfortable yet elegant house opening out to the sea and the garden. A sandy path leads straight down to one of the most beautiful beaches in Eleuthera, perfect for morning walks, afternoon swims and any water sport imaginable. The reefs are rich with sea life and easily accessible from the beach for superb snorkeling.
This spacious home, which has a serene and restful ambiance, is well built and impeccably maintained. A traditional Bermuda concrete roof provides passive cooling for the warmer days while a working fireplace is at hand for the occasional cooler winter's night in the main sitting room. On either side of the sitting room, there are Bahama-style rooms, one providing stunning views of the ocean and the other facing the garden patio and the pond beyond. Full floor to ceiling Pella storm windows and doors provide endless views.
The large open eat-in kitchen is fitted with quality Omega cabinetry and Corian counter-tops along with a separate butler's pantry and larder area for food preparation and storage, perfect for entertaining larger numbers. Choose formal dining or casual meals in the Bahama Room or open air patios. Of course, beach picnics are always an option!
Two full sized bedrooms and a smaller guest room all with en-suite bathrooms complete the approximately 3,600 square foot main house along with an attached 2 car garage and additional maids quarters with Jack & Jill bedrooms with a shared full bath.
Owl's Nest is offered fully furnished with many elegant John Stuart, Mid Century Modern, furniture pieces that would fit beautifully with any contemporary remodel. The property has central AC throughout with backup wall units and is also outfitted with a whole house generator, two cisterns totaling 40,000 gallon capacity with fully functional ultra-violet purification and pumping system. Public power, phone and internet services are all in place.
An additional 200 feet of beach front can also be added with the purchase of the adjacent parcel of land to the north with a 2 car garage to create an impressive estate with nearly 600 feet of powdery sand beach. An additional 400 foot parcel to the south could be added to create a stunning 1000' beachfront estate or development site. A true gem.
