About Idle Speed, Eastern Harbour

The name of this property, “Idle Speed” serves as a reminder to slow down, live the island life, and take it all in. This unique offering is a charming one half acre estate on the Dickie’s Cay side of Man-O-War’s coveted Eastern Harbor. The property extends from the harbor, featuring 75 feet of frontage, across the island to 92 feet of elevated frontage on the Sea of Abaco. Wooded and gently sloped, with virginal native coppice, stone-lined paths lead across the property, from the dock up to the cottage overlooking the Sea of Abaco.

The residence is ideally situated on the highest point, taking advantage of the views and prevailing southeasterly breezes. Built entirely by hand by one of Man-O-War’s most skilled carpenters, the 600 square foot one bed, one bath cottage is a rare jewel. Exposed cedar beams and custom mahogany furniture accent this compact and efficient design. Bronze hardware with redwood and cedar exteriors ensure that this home will bring years of enjoyment with minimal maintenance.

The recent addition of a generator and generator house makes it easy to take this property solar and completely off-grid. On the harbor frontage, there is over 50 feet of sandy beach, and the dock pilings that remain can be re-configured to accommodate the new dock of your choosing. Also included in this offering is a deep water mooring just off the property in the Eastern Harbor: a great option for seasonal boat storage or to generate rental income.
