Emerald Bay house description

Welcome to Hart House. Our beautiful beachfront home offers 3500 square feet of exquisite modern living space including a covered wrap-around deck located on a white sandy, expansive beach. Ideally situated, you are minutes from the Sandals Resort at Emerald Bay, near fine dining and the modern spa at Grand Isle, fifteen minutes from Georgetown (GGT) International airport, minutes from the Greg Norman designed golf course at Emerald Bay and less than 40 minutes from Georgetown.

There are four large soundproofed bedrooms each with a king sized bed, large closet, 40' flat screen HD TV, Direct TV satellite receiver and air conditioning with personal controls. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and three have large double showers, one has a bath/shower combination and all have double sinks. There are lots of beach and bathroom towels, extra linens, furniture and storage space.

There is stone look tile throughout, central air and ceiling fans in dining and living areas. The dining room seats eight comfortably and features a birds-eye maple table with matching hutch. The large kitchen features a modern glass top stove, built in microwave, refrigerator / freezer and plenty of flatware and dishes. You can enjoy dining outdoors with a complete set of outdoor dishes and glasses.

The large deck overlooks the ocean and features a salt water infinity pool, 14' gazebo, salt water hot tub and large three sided bar offering long ocean and beach views. It has an attached 3 piece washroom, bar fridge, ice-maker and sink. There are short steps down to a wooden deck with two outdoor, open showers at the beach allowing you to rinse off sand and salt in a natural environment.

The beach at Hart House is exceptional. All of the beaches along the coast of Exuma are remarkable with their beautiful multi-hued turquoise colors. Our beach is unique in that it rarely has the crashing waves commonly found at other properties. If you prefer the quiet, calm, softly lapping sounds and wish to enjoy quiet, clean water suitable for children or adults then this is the place to be.

There is peace to be found enjoying your morning coffee or breakfast out in the gazebo. You can gaze out over the incredibly beautiful waters and in the distance see the dark blue of the deep ocean crashing over the reef which protects this piece of paradise.

Stroll down to the water, coffee in hand and feel the gentle waves slowly lapping over your feet. There is not a rock to be found either on the beach or in the water. For those who enjoy long walks on the beach for pleasure or excercise the sand is packed firmly and sloped properly for brisk walking or jogging. If your travel plans feature a beautiful beach and luxurious accommodations as a priority then this is the place for you.

There are very few private homes on the island that do not experience power outages from time to time. Instead of flashlights and candles Hart House has a large 50 KVA power generator with an auto transfer switch. If power goes out you may not even know it. While the rest of the area is in darkness you can still enjoy the outside lighting, music or your favorite tv program.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: We live in the cold climate and love to get away during the dreary winter months. Our search for the perfect beach started over 25 years ago and when we discovered Exuma we knew our search had ended. We enjoy boating, fishing, golf and lazing by the pool. We have reached a place in our lives where we are enjoying the finer things, we enjoy peace, quiet, fine wines, good food and pleasant friends. Hart House is our piece of Paradise and we hope you find it that way too

                  Why the Owner Chose Emerald Bay:
                  After searching many islands we found the perfect beach. It is long, private, sandy bottom, with crystal clear water. It is the perfect get away. The house is built for couples, singles or families. It is close to the Georgetown airport and is extremely quiet. You can drive to quaint little outdoor restaurants or take short trips and enjoy two of the most beautiful beaches in all of The Bahamas.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Private, elegant living. Minutes from Sandals Resort and golf course at Emerald Bay. Thirty minute drive to visit Stocking Island and its famous Chat n' Chill beach bar or forty five minute drive to the Tropic of Cancer beach voted one of the most beautiful beaches of The Bahamas. Quite frankly I like our beach better.
