Sea Breeze is a beautiful, classic Henry Melich designed home nestled amongst lush, loose tropical landscaping. This is a property which so readily and elegantly exudes its thoughtful classical design.
Sea Breeze is naturally possessed of a light, airy and refreshing flow reminiscent of the tropical cocktail after which it is so aptly named. Built in the mid 1980s this well-maintained home boasts five bedrooms, four bathrooms and two half bathrooms. With a Spanish tile roof, this home encompasses 6,475 square feet and is situated on a 0.61 acre lot nestled within the desirable community of Lyford Cay.

Upon arrival one walks up the terracotta tiled pathway to the front entrance, flanked by light capturing oval windows and ionic columns. A welcoming arched doorway leads from the entry foyer to the drawing room and adjoining formal dining room. Three sets of French doors open onto a Mediterranean style courtyard, the perfect setting for al fresco dining on cooler island evenings.
The more informal part of the house has a kitchen which features a large island with a butcher block top, a gas range and an electric double oven. An adjoining bar allows for the guests to be sociable as the chef's skills are on display. Off the kitchen is a large bright breakfast nook where the family can enjoy meals together. Beyond the kitchen is the large family room which opens onto the screened in porch, offering seamless indoor-outdoor living.
From the patio, one walks out to the lushly landscaped garden and the pool with charming bridge. Tucked in the eastern corner of the garden is a quaint Hansel & Gretel folly featuring a working fireplace. As the garden gets east to west sun, the native and tropical flora and fauna, including the following trees; Ylang Ylang, Macadamia, Hayden Mango, Avocado and Soursop bask in the sunlight and flourish.
Off the entryway to the right there is an elegantly decorated powder room and a study/den that can be easily converted into a bedroom. This hallway leads into the primary suite where French doors open onto a private courtyard where one could relax on a quiet evening. The primary ensuite bathroom is spacious with double sinks, separate shower and free-standing bathtub.
