Our constant warm weather is filled with the excitement of summer. Bahamians are not known to shy away from colour, here are three breathtaking homes that will offer the tropical vibes you’ve always wanted!
The Yellow House
Governors Harbour, Eleuthera
Yellow expresses happiness, high energy and warmth. It’s the colour of the sun and is known for sparking creativity. Designed to allow the considerable beauty of Eleuthera to shine, Yellow House is a monument perched high on a hilltop and sprawled on an impressive 2.43 acres of tropical landscape. It truly stuns with 4 bedrooms and 4 and a half bathrooms and 140 feet of fantastic elevation.
This expansive, newly renovated, the designer property comprises a 3,417 sq. ft. luxury home, formal landscaped gardens, a fruit orchard and vegetable garden, and oak flooring to name a few. Enjoy commanding views from the perfect vantage point of the turquoise Atlantic waters and cool island breezes from the large rooftop terrace.
Ocean Club Estates, Paradise Island
Coral is thought to bring comfort and peace of mind, and so can the views of the 16th fairway of Ocean Club’s championship golf course. This custom-built Tuscan-style 5-bedroom residence sits a short stroll away from a sandy, tranquil beach. Refurbished, enlarged and updated the immaculately kept home captures picture-perfect views and boasts state-of-the-art systems, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with luxury appliances, a double-storey library, as well as extensive balconies and multiple areas for entertaining and relaxing. Home offers two offices and a third-floor Seaview suite with its own elevator access.
Soaring 12-foot ceilings, travertine floors, a spiral staircase, and impact-resistant double-glazed windows/doors complement the light-filled interior spaces. Outdoors, a heated saline pool with an adjacent BBQ area and a cabana shower create a welcome oasis.
Elbow Cay, Abaco
Renowned for its composed demeanour, blue is a tranquil presence. Offering beautiful panoramic sea views, landscaped gardens, an infinity edge pool, and a private hurricane hole marina with breakwater and docking for vessels up to 60’ all within one of the most upscale communities in The Abacos sit the serene Island Away.
The main house features an open living plan with a master suite plus 3 guest bedrooms and two baths, plus a guest cottage with 1 bedroom and 1 bath, overlooking the channel between Elbow Cay and Lubbers Quarters, it is one of the most protected waterfront properties on Elbow Cay with stunning sunsets across the Sea of Abaco.
