About this listing
Sophisticated yet simple, this mid century modern Bahamian home is perfectly situated on 300 feet of pristine and glorious oceanfront. The 4.5 acres of rolling green lawns and palm trees stretch from the Atlantic sea to the Savannah sound. The Dolphin House is a unique property with a 75 feet dock and cabana on the sound side and a second charming cabana overlooking the ocean. Plenty of opportunity for paddle boards and kayaks.
The original 3200 square feet home designed by Ray Nathaniels (who studied under Frank Lloyd Wright) includes 3 large bedrooms with their own ensuite, an outdoor shower, 2 cabanas and your own private beach.
The house has a unique shape, created and designed on the lot to invite the cool sea breezes and offer a balanced relationship of its surroundings. Sliding glass doors offer continuous views of the gorgeous ocean. As you make your way to the house, you will walk through a sunny central courtyard where a lovely bougainvillea and sitting area welcome you.
Designed for comfortable seaside living and entertaining, the central room is quite impressive with its 20' plus ceilings and views of the turquoise water. It includes the living and dining, has ceiling fans and air conditioning. For your enjoyment satellite tv and a quality sound system make this room complete. Spend precious time with family and friends after a beach day to read, play board games, do a puzzle, or a quiet game of chess.
Each bedroom has it's own shaded patio and porch plus a ceiling fan and air conditioning. The master bedroom has a king bed and perfectly positioned to view the ocean. Overlooking the garden is the second bedroom with a queen bed and a bathtub to its ensuite. The third bedroom is located in a separate ‘cottage' joined to the house by the central courtyard. From this spacious room you have a view of the Savannah Sound.
The separate newly renovated kitchen (designed to keep the heat away from the main area) is just off the dining area and overlooks the ocean. The clean lines of the subway tiles and concrete counter tops make it a great place to prepare the meals and even do a little baking should you feel the urge! At your disposal is a two oven gas cooker and fully equipped kitchen with microwave, toaster, Nespresso coffee machine, blender, KitchenAid mixer, etc., and with air conditioning.
The laundry room is a few steps away from the kitchen in a separate building.
The Windermere Club is part of the exclusivity of Windermere Island and certainly included in your stay at The Dolphin House. You will have access to tennis courts, pool, gym and from November to May, bar and restaurant services.
