Ananda features 4 master bedrooms and 5 baths divided into a main house and two pavilions in front of a 50-foot pool. The latter is framed by a 400 square foot elevated daybed on one side and a sunken Sala featuring BBQ/Bar/Dining Lounge on the other.
The main house has a central area with an open floor plan featuring a kitchen, family area, along with a sunken dining area to maximize ocean views from all locations. A separate pantry and washroom complete the central layout. On each side of the central area, a spacious master bedroom with its own sunken sofa area comes equipped with an en-suite bathroom and its complement of amenities. Of note are the oversized shower rooms, dual sinks and high-end oversized marble bathtubs. Walls of glass frame the seaside and a 10-foot fully-furnished wrap-around patio provides a seamless indoor-outdoor living.
The two mirror-image cottages also provide spacious master bedrooms with walls of glass that open electronically to a large surrounding patio with access to the pool and its amenities, steps away from what basically amounts to your own private beach. The cottage baths feature huge 10-foot walk-in showers, outdoor showers, dual sinks and the huge marble tubs right in front of the view.
The Ananda property covers 1.3 acres with 145 linear feet of beachfront. It provides some 15,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor living, around 7,500 square feet of which is under-roof and approximately 4,000 square feet is pure indoor space. Beautiful private residence or an investment property offering exceptional rental income potential and qualifies for Bahamian Permanent Residency in a favorable tax environment that The Bahamas offers.
