Description

Harbour House overlooks the docks of the charming and sleepy fishing village of Cherokee Sound Settlement.

Cherokee Sound is home to the Bahamas only 'Shell Museum' as well as the Bahamas' longest wood dock. The 775 foot long dock harkens back to the 'old times' when freight was brought to town by dinghy and wheel barrow.

This 135 year Historic Home sits in the picturesque fishing village where time seems to have stopped turning 70 years ago. Apart from all the utility poles and electricity wires, you feel like you've stepped back in time when you walk down the narrow cement lanes.

The sleepy fishing village is full of wood picket fences and front porches where the locals chat with passersby and 'shoot the breeze'.

The quaint settlement of Cherokee Sound sits on a beautiful natural estuary of water that connects Yellow Wood Creek with the Atlantic Ocean.

The lower floor plan has large kitchen separate living room, one bathroom, two bedrooms while the upper floor is a large loft bedroom. The original part of the home was built of Abaco Pine which is naturally resistant to termites.

The property has potential as a vacation rental cottage. Cherokee is off the beaten track with great atmosphere and friendly residents, all within an easy 25-minute drive to Marsh Harbour for the International Airport, shopping, services, dining and amenities.

This is a great opportunity to experience Old World Charm life like it used to be.

Real Estate Agent : Dwayne Wallas

Name:
Dwayne Wallas
Phone:
242-359-6046

Dwayne was born in Eastbourne on the southern coast of England, but he grew up in Nassau from the age of two. After graduating from high school in Nassau at St. Andrews School in 1995, he majored in the physical sciences, attending Goddard College in Vermont and graduating from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts in 2001 with his Bachelor of Arts degree. The title of his college thesis, "A Mechanical Analysis of a Movement in Rock Climbing" alludes to his appreciation for the outdoors and the environment. After spending a few years in the graphic arts profession, Dwayne joined the family business in 2003 at the age of 25. With a focus in the appraisal discipline, and also providing professional services in sales, he continues the tradition started by his great grand-uncle and the founder of the company, Sir Harold George Christie, K.T., C.B.E., in 1922. Dwayne's major interest in life involves sails ranging from little remote control sailboats up to PHRF "Big boat" racing. He has represented the Bahamas on the international level in the Snipe class and is still an avid sailor, a trait he inherited from his grandfather, Peter Christie. Other pursuits include cycling (on and off-road), rock climbing, carpentry, photography, fishing and traveling. His travels within the Bahamas include the Abaco mainland and cays, Andros, Eleuthera, Harbour Island, Spanish Wells, Cat Island, Inagua, San Salvador, Great Exuma and much of the Exuma Cays chain, North and South Bimini, and Rum Cay. Dwayne maintains that the most unique place he has visited in the Bahamas is Conception Island, one of our unknown national marine parks. Dwayne lives in Marsh Harbour and is a real estate professional serving all of the Abacos. Visit Dwayne's Abaco Real Estate blog at http://MyAbacoBlog.com
