“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.
Originally offered for $5.5 million, the Boat House sits inside the exclusive, five-star Grand Bahama Yacht Club in Freeport, Grand Bahama Island and the purchase comes with a membership to The Lucayan or Bahama Reef Golf and Country Clubs. It features five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms spread across three expansive residences, including a main boat house, guest cottage, and studio.
The Boat House consists of three buildings: a 7,907 square foot main house, a 1,220 sq. ft. guest cottage, a three car garage, and a 600 sq. ft. studio. The design is a blend of traditional Danish and Caribbean architecture.
The house’s most distinctive feature is an enchanting boat slip and lift area that serves as the highlight of the ground floor. Lit by the glow of antique chandeliers and engulfed in rich mahogany finishes and Ipe wood flooring, the boat slip allows the owner of the home to enter without ever having to touch land. The Hinckley Picnic Boat is also included in the sale.
