Each of the rooms has been purposed designed with unique architectural features and finishes. The extensive use of hardwoods and stone create stunning visual effects. The Great Room and office are paneled with white mahogany hand selected in Honduras taken to England for milling the reassembled in Nassau. The fireplaces (4) were imported from country homes in Britain and custom fit to the home. Twelve foot ceilings allow optimal air circulation throughout. All finishes are of the highest quality, with attention to impeccable detail. Over the past decade the houses all have undergone extensive restorations. All electrical and plumbing systems have been modernized and brought up to today's standards. The roofs have been replaced and the historical wood and ironwork has been lovingly restored. The gourmet kitchen, with custom cabinetry, has been upgraded to create a thoroughly modern functional workspace. The private gated grounds and magnificent gardens create a mood of serenity. S et amidst 4 acres of lush flowering tropical gardens, including fruit and coconut trees, a swimming pool and Jacuzzi all with views over the mature manicured grounds, saltwater canals, and distant Atlantic Ocean. In total there are 15 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms all set in a magnificent private setting close but not too near the beaches, shopping and all of the new amenities at the Baha Mar Resort and Casino. The estate is an island of serenity, a perfect place to enjoy all that Nassau has to offer in an idyllic historical setting.
