Sotheby's International Realty - Windermere Island
Located on Windermere Island just off the east coast of mainland Eleuthera, this property offers a rare opportunity to customize your own two-acre seaside estate while enjoying the exclusivity and privacy that makes Windermere Island a favorite hideaway for celebrities and jetsetters from around the world. The expansive home offers 4,000-sq. ft. of living space on two acres of lushly landscaped waterfront property overlooking 145 feet of pristine pink sand beach. This home has an enviable beachfront position, but a highlight of its outdoor space is the infinity pool that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. The pool provides you the perfect place to unwind at any time of the day.
This home, best described as contemporary design meets island chic, is an exceptional beachfront property set amid idyllic grounds. Its main level features two master suites complete with full-sized living rooms, tumbled marble floors and double-paned French doors that open onto the extensive terrace. At the heart of the terrace is the home’s focal point: an open-air poolside dining pavilion that offers stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean a nd is large enough to comfortably accommodate a large dining table and lounge seating for many. A stand-alone kitchen house connects to the dining pavilion via an open breezeway creating a convenient, elegant set up for entertaining outdoors.
The well-thought out design includes an entire lower level specifically set aside for use as staff quarters or for guests to enjoy the privacy of having an entire space to themselves. Features on this floor include travertine marble tiling throughout, a kitchen and a floor plan large enough to accommodate five spacious bedrooms, once built out.
The property’s outdoor features also include a beach-side cabana with fine mesh screening to keep out all insects. An ideal spot for falling asleep to the calming sound of the ocean. On the west side of the main home is a partially completed 3,000-sq. ft. cottage with plumbing pipes and hurricane-impact windows and doors. Once finished, the cottage, complete with a second pool, could easily be used to generate additional income.
