One-of-a-kind Bahamas oasis to be auctioned by Concierge Auctions

In-home boat slip allows owners to drive their boat directly into the center of the home

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama Island, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions, a New York-based luxury real estate auction firm that sells high-end properties worldwide, and local partner, Sterling Bahamas Realty, today announced the April 30th auction of The Boat House and Ship Owner townhome, two estates that rest within the walls of the exclusive, five-star Grand Bahama Yacht Club in Freeport, Grand Bahama Island.

The Boat House's most distinctive feature – and the source of its namesake - is an enchanting boat slip and lift area that serves as the highlight of the ground floor. "When you come into the property at night in your boat, it's like returning to a hideout in a James Bond movie," said the current owner of the estate.

The Boat House, originally offered for $5.5M, features five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms spread across three expansive residences, including a main boat house, guest cottage, and studio.

The house's most distinctive feature – and the source of its namesake – is an enchanting boat slip and lift area that serves as the highlight of the ground floor. Lit by the glow of antique chandeliers and engulfed in rich mahogany finishes and Ipe wood flooring, the boat slip allows the owner of the home to enter without ever having to touch land. The grandeur of the slip area is topped off by the 36-foot, jet-powered Hinckley Picnic Boat that is docked within it; handcrafted and derived from one of the world's most renowned lines, the luxury craft is included with the sale.

"Our guests marvel at the endless fun and deep relaxation that The Boat House has to offer," said the current owners. "A favorite feature of theirs and ours is the boat slip — when you come into the property at night in your boat, it's like returning to a hideout in a James Bond movie."

Sitting on one acre of lush waterfront property, the main house boasts nearly 8,000 square feet of living space and soaring, 14-foot ceilings. The home's natural blend of traditional Danish and Caribbean architecture is striking, from the upper floor of the main boat house – which is defined by an open living, kitchen, and dining concept – to the master suite, study and powder room. Wrap-around balconies surround the upper floor on three sides, offering brilliant views of the marina, while windows and doors crafted of solid Honduras mahogany complement the island setting.

As if the boat house itself isn't enough, there is a 600-square-foot studio and an additional 1,220-square-foot guest cottage for friends. In the cottage, nearly every room — living, kitchen and bedroom — opens onto the balcony, affording fantastic views of the water.

"Just a 45-minute flight from Miami and with direct flights from Atlanta, New York, Canada and London, these properties offer seclusion, a tropical environment, and all the most modern amenities without the hassle of going to a remote, inaccessible resort," said Lamond Davis, who is representing Sterling Bahamas Realty as the Listing Agent of the estates.

Located along the marina, the Ship Owner townhome mimics the same traditional Danish style found in the Boat House, including the vista of sailboats as they make their way to harbor. Originally offered for $1.199M, this four-bedroom, three and a half bathroom unit is spread over 3,000 square feet of indoor living space. Ironwood flooring, Venezuelan mahogany French doors, and floor-length shutters on every door and window enrich the space.

While residents can enjoy the privacy that The Boat House and Ship Owner townhome offer, they also have the choice to socialize with neighbors, as the sale includes membership to The Lucayan or Bahama Reef Golf and Country Clubs. With golf, tennis, swimming, fishing and yachting all within walking distance, activities abound to satisfy every taste and are inviting for family and friends to join in on the Grand Bahamian lifestyle.

"With this auction of The Boat House and Ship Owner townhome, Concierge Auctions is continuing its commitment to provide a white-gloved service for buyers seeking rare opportunities to purchase one-of-a-kind properties in the world's most desired locations," said Founder and President of Concierge Auctions, Laura Brady.
