Dock Your Boat in the Living Room of This Bahamas Luxury Estate

Aptly named “The Boat House,” this yacht club property’s first floor is a luxurious slip with mahogany railings and antique chandeliers.

We’ve heard of people being so fond of their cars or motorcycles that they have special display areas built in their dens or offices, but this is the first time we’ve seen a luxurious beach house built around a boat slip that’s decked out better than most people’s living rooms.

The property, which actually combines two estates within the gates of the Grand Bahama Yacht Club in Freeport, allows you to board the handcrafted, jet-powered, 36-foot Hinckley Picnic Boat included in the price, without even setting foot outside. The boat slip and lift area is the highlight of the ground floor, and is lit by antique chandeliers and surrounded by rich mahogany finishes and Ipe wood flooring.

“When you come into the property at night in your boat, it’s like returning to a hideout in a James Bond movie,” say the current owners. Their property will go on the auction block live via Concierge Auctions on April 30. It was originally offered for $5.5 million.

Of course there’s also plenty of room for owners and guests on the estate, which sits on one acre of lush waterfront property. The main house encompasses nearly 8,000 square feet of living space, with 14-foot ceilings. The design is a blend of traditional Danish and Caribbean architecture.
 
The upper floor, above the slip, features an open living, kitchen and dining concept with wraparound balconies on three sides with sweeping views of the marina. The windows and doors are crafted of solid Honduras mahogany.

The property also includes a 600-square-foot studio and an additional 1,220-square-foot guest cottage. All totaled there are five bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms.

But we mention the property includes two estates: The other is a Ship Owner townhome that mirrors the same traditional Danish style found in the Boat House, including the vista of sailboats as they make their way to harbor. Originally offered for $1.199 million, this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom unit is spread over 3,000 square feet of indoor living space. Here you'll find Ironwood flooring, Venezuelan mahogany French doors and floor-length shutters on every door and window.

In addition to these luxe accommodations, the sale includes membership to The Lucayan or Bahama Reef Golf and Country Clubs, which puts golf, tennis, swimming, fishing and yachting all within walking distance.
 

“Just a 45-minute flight from Miami and with direct flights from Atlanta, New York, Canada and London, these properties offer seclusion, a tropical environment and all the most modern amenities without the hassle of going to a remote, inaccessible resort,” said Lamond Davis, who is representing Sterling Bahamas Realty as the listing agent of the estates.
