“Buying My Dream Home” with Jeffery & Jacinta Edgecome
Meet Jacinta and Chef Jeffery Edgecombe, proud owners of this beautiful three bedroom home located in a prominent community in eastern Nassau. The recently married couple and parents of two young boys, Elijah (9) and Javari (2), decided they wanted to purchase a fixer-upper. Adding their personal taste to an already developed property allowed them to quickly move in to their family’s dream home that would allow the boys plenty of room to play and grow.
Jacinta and Jeffery both share a deep love for the culinary arts which explains the family’s elegantly remodelled kitchen. Redesigned with state of the art appliances, quartz countertops and wooden shaker cabinets, the kitchen has become the area of the home where the couple both prefer spending their time – as they imagined it would be. While Jeffery uses the kitchen mainly to perfect his art as a chef, Jacinta uses the space to express her love for baking and exploring new recipes found her in collection of cookbooks.
The master bedroom was another focal area during the home remodel. Designed to fit a king sized bed, the room is the ideal escape – the getaway one would want after a long day of work. Details within the spacious ensuite bath and walk in closet were not spared, as Jacinta mentioned “every woman needs her dream closet”.
One year after moving into their new home, Jacinta says she is completely in-love and is extremely happy that they chose to use Bahamian Escapes to assist them in finding the property and walking them through to closing.
Jeffery, a popular chef on island, recalls stumbling across many great property options online while browsing BahamianEscapes.com. The search for the right home commenced and they remained patient as Shamon Campbell, Estate Agent and head of our Real Estate Group, continued to send properties that matched their criteria (location, budget and bedrooms). “The fact that Bahamian Escapes represents not only high valued properties, but affordable hidden gems located throughout the islands of the Bahamas made this relationship… no partnership perfect for us.” – Jeffery.
During our interview, the couple continued to express their level of satisfaction in Bahamian Escapes’ Real Estate Group who exceeded their expectations and found a home that was listed below the family’s budget allowing them to spend a little more to perfect. She said their assigned agent, Shamon Campbell went above and beyond to expedite the closing process and assisted the family with finding the best financial institution to secure the mortgage and recommended a law firm to ensure all paperwork was completed accurately and as quickly as possible.
We chose to feature the Edgecombe family’s story for this edition of Bahamian Escapes’ ‘Why Did You Buy?’ article because we too, fell in love with not only their journey but their home. We are overjoyed to see the Edgecombe’s vision come to life having taken each step side-by-side.
Bahamian Escapes is a luxury real estate brand who have redefined the term luxury to represent quality and not value. Congratulations again, to the Edgecomes!
