Tropical Island Home for Sale
Boating and Fishing Island Paradise
The house is a two level north facing frame home constructed in 1993 by Charles Sands, the premier island builder, situated on a large double, nearly 1/2 acre (20,174 sq. ft.) nicely landscaped lot on the island of Great Guana Cay, Abaco, Bahamas. There are beautiful views of both the Atlantic Ocean, about 500 ft to the north, and the Sea of Abaco, about 650 ft. to the south and west. The house elevation is approximately 35 ft above sea level, well above any potential storm surge possibility. It is located on an all weather paved road, about one mile northwest of the Settlement. The house has survived three major hurricanes over the last 20 years with very minimal damage.
The upper main level is composed of 1120 ft. interior living space, with 935 sq. ft. of covered walk-around deck. The main level has two large bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms, each a large walk-in closet, and an open plan kitchen and living area. All interior walls and ceilings are 1x6 tongue & groove cypress. The kitchen/living area has a cathedral ceiling. All floors are ceramic tile. There is a large 12 x 34 ft south facing deck with roll down sun/wind screens that we use as part of the living/dining area most of the year. It gets the prevailing southwesterly winds in the summer months and is protected by the house from the prevailing northerly winter winds. It is a perfect area for dining or relaxing and watching sunsets year round! The living room area is furnished with two premium leather love seats, with a matching recliner, all nearly new. There are 8 ft. double pane sliding glass doors on the east, west, south, and a 8 ft. double pane French door on the north (front). Enjoy the great cross breezes most anytime of the year. The ceilings are well insulated, as well as most of the exterior walls. The house is fully furnished, including appliances, cookware, dishes, spices in the cupboard, canned goods in the pantry, and a cold beer in the fridge. It is ready to walk into and begin enjoying your tropical dream. We are only taking personal items when we leave. Everything else stays with the house. It has 10,000 gallons of fresh water storage in concrete water tanks under the house. Most fresh water on the island comes from rain catchment. We have lived here nearly 20 years and have never come close to running out of water, but water can be purchased, if necessary. There is a two year old built-in 18,000 btu air conditioner in the main kitchen/living area, and a 5000 btu window unit in each bedroom.
The lower level is comprised of a fully furnished 650 sq. ft. one bedroom, one bath apartment with a complete kitchen and living area. The apartment is also fully furnished, and can be easily rented if desired. There is an eight foot double pane sliding glass door on west side, and an 8 ft. French door on north side (front). It has a nearly new 6000 btu window-type air conditioner in the bedroom.
The lower apartment could be rented for at least a $1000 per month and both levels together for about $40,000 per year. There is a high demand for full-time rentals on this island.
The lower level also contains a large storage room with lots of shelving. Storeroom comes with lots of carpenter and mechanic tools, as well as many spare parts, extra equipment, and hardware. There are enough tools to build or extensively remodel a house, or to completely rebuild a golf cart motor or outboard engine. Tools include chain saws, table, skill and chop saws, router, sanders, drills, jack hammer, SAE and metric ½ and 3/8 hand tools, and much more. It also includes two portable generators, fishing equipment, air compressor, battery charger, and even more.
The exterior landscaping includes many flowering shrubs (bougainvillea, plumbago, hibiscus, frangipani, yellow elder, oleander, Ixoria, crotons, and more), as well as many mature coconut palms, plus, banana, key lime, papaya, mango, mandarin orange, and avocado trees.
As an extra bonus, the property includes a 1998 EZGO gas golf cart that runs great. It also includes a 22' twin engine Twin Vee fiberglass catamaran power boat that is perfect for this area, and a little, really fun, Hobie Bravo sail boat.
The house comes with the option to also purchase one or two adjoining lots in a nearby development, including a boat slip on a new dock located about 700 ft. down the road in one of the best protected harbours on the island.
If you are looking to move to an island paradise with great fishing and boating, beautiful, usually vacant beaches, as well as a very friendly and safe local environment, this is a one of a kind opportunity. Everything is here, just walk in the front door and begin enjoying the wonderful island lifestyle! You m ight even find a couple of cold beers in the fridge! We have had a wonderful 18 years on this magical tropical island, made a lot of friends from all over the world, and don't want to leave, but age and medical issues dictate that it is time to move on.
If you have any questions, or would like to visit, just email.
Price $395,000 firm, which is probably the best deal on the island.
