Step back in time to the fabulous world explorer and writer, Rosita Forbes had established her incredible 7,000 Square Foot home on the peak of fabulous Unicorn Cay, Banks Road, Governor's Harbour.

Built in 1940, currently on a roll of 6 acres to a peak of over 75 feet above sea level of a giant dune, with large covered porches, turrets and interior court yard, styled after the fashion of an old world Chateau, a hallmark of stunning elegance and European grandeur.

Across the dune over to the beach, drive in your golf cart along the coconut lined path to the renown Unicorn Cay beach. Pink sands stretching for miles to walk, snorkel, take in the salt air.

The 4 bed, 4.5 home is light and airy with spacious rooms. The beautiful original hardwood floors and tile work, crown molding and sweeping sea views create a special ambience.

Ivy covered front porches crystalize the setting with the vistas of dazzling aquamarine.

The main house has a master bedroom and bath, a large functional den, the 1,500 square foot living room with a player piano and a fabulous bar. Three bedroom suites surround the heated and outdoor dining area within the court yard. Chef's kitchen just off the full size dining room.

The one bedroom guest house has unique and stunning sea views, sleek and private.

All utilities and complete back up power and water systems.

The house is being sold fully furnished with the exception of a few personal items.
