A recently renovated residence with panoramic views across the golf course and less than a three-minute walk to the Lyford Cay Club and all its amenities, including its private long white sand beach.
This charming one-storey home is tucked away on the quiet cul-de-sac of Arbor Lane within the prestigious gated community of Lyford Cay. As one arrives at the property you are greeted by a lush garden, the centre piece being an ancient and majestic Banyon tree, from which Arbor Lane takes its name). The house itself is of traditional island design, and benefits from a white Bermuda roof. The residence is roughly 4,800 square feet of living space with five bedrooms, four of which are ensuite. Situated on 0.65 acres of prime real estate, the property has recently undergone a exterior and interior overhaul, the garden also being beautifully re-landscaped, with the end result being a lovingly presented tropical island home.
Coming up the gravel driveway one is greeted by a spacious double garage and path leading to the front door. Upon entering the house there is a wide entrance hall with an adjacent spacious powder room. The hall opens out to the drawing room on the left and living room and dining area to the right, giving the house a very open and spacious feel. Turning towards the left, one steps down into the formal drawing room where there are three sets of double French doors leading out onto a deep covered veranda which overlooks the garden, and has far reaching views which include the 18th hole of the golf course, and beyond. By the drawing room is the fifth bedroom/study with French doors through which it also shares in the stunning vista. This multi-faceted room has a spacious closet and could equally be used as a gym, snug, or playroom. Sharing this side of the house are two bedroom suites both also with spacious closets.
One of the bedrooms benefits from three windows, featuring a seated bay window which also overlooks the garden, golf course and veranda. The other bedroom looks towards the front of the property and the Banyon tree, with a Jack & Jill style bathroom, shared by the fifth bedroom.
Turning right from the entrance hall, is a bright and airy living room, featuring a a double vaulted tongue and groove ceiling, and a working fireplace. Adjacent to the living room is the dining area. Both rooms have French doors opening out onto the garden and an al fresco dining area. Off the dining room is a remodelled kitchen, with high quality cabinetry and granite countertops. The kitchen also features a sub-zero double-door fridge/freezer with matching panels, a stainless steel Thermador professional cooking range, and a new Kitchen-Aid double oven and dishwasher. There is ample storage as well as an adjoining large pantry. Passing through the kitchen one comes to a breakfast nook with French doors also opening onto the dining patio, and through which it catches the morning sun. The arrangement of the dining room, kitchen, and breakfast nook sees all rooms centred around the al fresco dining patio, providing the perfect flow for seamless indoor/outdoor dining and entertaining.
To the right of the breakfast area is the hall to the master bedroom suite. Upon entering you are met with a double vaulted tongue and groove ceiling, giving this room a rather spacious and airy feel. Double French doors open out onto its very own quaint walled patio garden, giving the suite a very private feel. There is also a well-appointed ensuite bathroom with marble topped double vanity and large walk-in shower with bench. The suite also benefits from a spacious custom built walk-in closet.
Moving beyond the kitchen there is a further ensuite bedroom, followed by the utility room with new washer/dryer. From the utility room there is the back door leading out onto a further patio and the garden at the rear of the property where there is a path which flanks the side of the property leading towards the front driveway and which can be conveniently used as a staff entrance, if required.
The combination of proximity to the Lyford Cay Club, the beach, and the 18th hole of the golf course already make this property a highly sought-after affair. That it is also at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with only two other houses and has recently been redone heighten such desirability.
The property also benefits from a full back-up generator and well.
Lyford Cay is home to the renowned Lyford Cay Club, which features beautiful beaches, a golf course, marina, tennis courts, pool, fitness center, beauty salon, restaurants, and hotel facilities.
