If you are someone who appreciates the finer things in life then you will love The Botanical Sanctuary On Manjack Cay. This enviable retreat is a tropical botanists' playground. The beautifully landscaped 4.8 acres of elevated land features glens, arbors, groves and gardens. The estate is nestled between a stunning anchorage and mesmerizing mangrove creeks with 3 dock piers and 2 homes and too many features to list here. Key improvements include the relaxing main house, a charming guest cottage, a workshop barn, detached garage, raised garden beds, a grapevine arbors, chicken coop, hydroponics and aquaponics, an orchid house and a drawbridge. The main south dock currently has a depth of 4 feet which will be extended another 100 feet to provide for a draft of 7 feet and ample space for a large yacht to berth.

The main home of 1,322 SF is fully custom featuring the quintessential wrap-around covered porch with large openings to ensure natural cooling of the interior throughout the year. The kitchen surfaces are warm mahogany milled on site from trees that stood where the house was built. The attention to detail in this home must be seen to be appreciated. Notable elements of the home include a wine cellar, very open floor plan, custom indoor-outdoor stone shower overlooking the exotic orchid house, 2 walk-in closets, pantry, commercial grade indoor grill, an excessive level of storage spaces built in and calming views of the Sea of Abaco. The home has only 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom plus the flexible loft space for additional beds or a home office. The home is well built with a metal roof and a choice of materials to stand the test of time.

The charming 400 sq ft guest cottage also enjoys incredible views across the sea. It is equipped a small but complete kitchen, a cozy loft for the children and a small dock right in front. Perfect for accommodating family and friends who want to pay a visit to your tropical paradise. This cottage could also be a cute vacation rental for added income.

The north docks on the creek are the perfect place to keep the smaller vessels when the weather becomes unsavory. The channel in the creek to the north docks is limited to a 3 foot controlling draft at high tide only. There is a boat launch ramp and small dock house supporting the creek docks.

For the botanists and tree lovers the following species were identified on the property: grape arbors, wild rosemary grove, citronella lemongrass grove, key lime, sour orange, lignum vitae, breadfruit, dilly, papaya, sugarcane, myriad of palms, orchids and air plants, banana, sugar apple, cherry, moringa, and many more. The workshop barn has a few shop tools and there is a functional backhoe and pick up truck included.

Manjack Cay is a world unto itself but it is a short 10 minute boat ride to Green Turtle Cay for all your services and amenities.

The famous Fiddle Cay sandbar is right around the corner and Treasure Cay is also close by for the airport and easy access to Marsh Harbour.
