This unique property on Nassau’s historic Eastern Road comprises a British colonial style main house (7,000 sq ft) and Solomon’s Lighthouse, which dates back to the early 1950s, and is presented facing the ocean over the whole length of two lots (Winton 47 & 48). It benefits from an extraordinary view of the ocean, all day sunlight and all-year-round breeze from the East.
The main house is on two levels with tall, beamed ceilings and comprises six large bedrooms, four bathrooms, two toilets, a main drawing room with a two-storey bay window facing the ocean and a separate eating area, a generous study/home office, comfortable TV room/den, large kitchen with eating area, and separate staff quarters. The whole property, inside and out, has been lovingly restored to a very high standard over the last five years and all interior rooms have been recently repainted. The house has an external porch around the perimeter which provides ample space to eat, read and relax in the shade on both floors. The lighthouse, which would make an excellent home-office or guest house, is aesthetically joined to the main house by a beautiful stone-clad bridge. It has five floors including a completely new eagle’s nest at the very top with glass walls and a spectacular view in all directions, an original kitchen, two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a basement room for storage and an internal electric lift. The main house is distinguished by its traditional wooden porch, copper gutters and drain pipes throughout and a traditional wooden shingle roof.
The master plan for the amalgamation of the two seafront lots into a single unique eight-bedroom property with its landmark Bahamian lighthouse, was conceived by the distinguished British classical architect, Alireza Sagharchi, a longtime favorite of H.R.H. The Prince of Wales. It includes a 90ft horizon pool, natural stone-clad sea wall, hundreds of square feet of Italian travertine tiled terrace, a wooden deck with direct access to the ocean, and a terraced planted garden that descends gradually under the bridge, towards the sea.
Freshly planted palms and a bougainvillea covered external wall with two double entry and exit gates offer security as well as shaded parking for up to five vehicles. The entire property is protected by an alarm system with more than 70 sensors which is monitored 24/7/365. A high powered generator that supplies electricity to all outlets in both buildings, ample supply of propane and pumped connection to City water ensure that the property is never cut off from the essential utilities, whatever the weather.
