Arrive by bicycle or by foot down a quiet lane in the historic village of Hope Town. The front entrance doubles as a peaceful garden courtyard, that beckons you in to this 1024 square foot, 2 storey cottage. The plan is inverted and designed to maximize the wonderful Bahama breeze. On the main floor is 2 spacious guest rooms, each with private balconies and a Jack-and Jill bathroom. On the second floor is the kitchen, dining, living room, 2nd bathroom, and access to a rooftop lookout. The west facing balcony off the kitchen boasts a clear view of the lighthouse. While the east facing balcony off the living room has a lovely view of the town and all the different rooftops that help create the village charm. Built in 2009, framed with cedar timbers, finished with a HardiePlank Bermuda-style roof, Abaco Pine floors upstairs, tile on the main floor, PGT windows, and hanging impact shutters. Within the gardens are 3 outbuildings: an outdoor shower, laundry/ storage room, and workshop. The home was constructed with care and attention to detail. 19" wide old growth pine boards were repurposed to build the beautiful breakfast bar and kitchen countertop. Other features of the home are a salt water well, 2500 gallon cistern, 3 split unit air conditioners, and on demand electric hot water heater. Sold with appliances in place.
