About this beautiful Waterfront Home

One of a kind 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home with an additional artist studio with a bathroom and separate entrance, built of solid native stone on almost one acre waterfront lot on the Sea of Abaco. Located at the secluded northern end of the 40 acre Twin Hills private development, only a 10 minute drive north of Marsh Harbour and the Airport.

This home was designed for exceptional privacy and an intimate connection with nature. Grand in Island style, with large windows and doors, massive native stone fireplace, original concrete tile floors, lofty ceilings planked in Abaco Pine, with paddle fans throughout.

The floor plan is open, featuring a modern kitchen as the hub, with wide angle views of the sea from large windows and doors in every room. The living room is spacious, with a high ceiling and a fireplace. The second living room could be used as an office or a forth bedroom. The third bedroom located at one end of the home has its own entrance and can be used as an artists studio or a guest section (mother-in-law studio). The house is fully furnished and equipped. There is a large laundry room and a separate one car garage/storage.

Lush, mature, native vegetation is surrounding the property - over 100 coconut trees and shrubs attract a variety of local and migratory birds and provide a lush background for this striking home. A circular drive provides a graceful approach to the house. There is access to the Sea of Abaco for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and sailing - and of course - fishing, including a very healthy population of the much sought after bonefish! This property is truly a naturalist and a fly fisherman's paradise!

This unique home offers 2,500 sq. ft. of living space, and a total of 3,840 sq. ft. under roof. The property is located on a parcel named Lot 1 (41,520 sq. ft.), which really consists of two lots in Twin Hills subdivision. Here you can enjoy the 357 feet shoreline with breathtaking sunsets.

This property is ideal as a family vacation retreat, second or full time home. It can be converted into a bone fishing lodge with ample room to build several more cottages. There is Beach access and a bone fishing bay nearby.
