This modern yet simple Caribbean Style Beach home is a stunning turnkey property. Perfectly situated on 450 feet of pristine and glorious ocean beach front, the 3.24 acres of green lawns and lush palm trees has much to offer. Built in 1964 and designed by Ray Nathaniels, one of The Bahamas' most distinguished architects, Trident House is a perfect example of his work and a tribute to his ability to create timeless island elegance. Nathaniels studied under Frank Lloyd Wright and became the founder of the modern Bahamian Aesthetic. The open and airy great room has floor to ceiling glass doors that offer continuous ribbons of views of the sweeping green gardens and the horizon of the rolling sea beyond. With a central great room designed for comfortable seaside living and entertaining, Trident is a well built and impeccably maintained 4 bedroom 4.5 bath home. The shaded patios and porches off every room offer a cool place to sit at any time of the day. Of unusual and idiosyncratic shape, Trident House was created and positioned on the lot to create shade, eliminate heat and invite in refreshing sea breezes. It provides a balanced relationship with its surroundings, offering endless enjoyment of sun, sand and sea. Fully renovated in 1997 Trident has had tasteful additions including a bedroom suite, a pool, and 3 car garage with 2 bed 2 bath guest house added from 2001 to 2016. A full house on demand standby generator services the property. Single level main house with easy access provides stress free living for all ages. Trident is an inspiring home with room to grow. There is ample beachfront land beside the house allowing for further development or added privacy. It is an excellent investment opportunity as a vacation rental property or a private estate. Steps lead you to an incredible pink sand beach at the base of the bluff offering glistening ocean waters for you and your guests to swim, snorkel, dive, kayak and more. The beach extends north and south for miles of walking and countless hours of exploration. Or simply enjoy relaxing poolside or sunbathing on the expansive roof top deck. Being centrally located on the stunning island of Eleuthera in North Palmetto Point along the Old Banks Road provides easy access to nearby Palmetto Point and Governor's Harbour for your every need. Shops, restaurants, banks and more are just a few miles away. The area is serviced comfortably by either The Rock Sound or Governor's Harbour International Airports. This is a rare opportunity to own and enjoy a Ray Nathaniels Caribbean home: He created many eye-catching buildings not only of great beauty but also of great practicality...They will outlast us all and give pleasure to their owners as yet unborn.
