About the Property

4 bedroom 3 bathroom Beachfront Home Solar and Wind Powered

Bonefish Bay
Live the dream now!!!

Experience how it feels to live in a sustainable energy home.

Live completely off the grid, with 100% Solar and Wind Power. Our home has water on three sides with panoramic views all the way around.

Surround yourself by nature, with more than three miles from your nearest neighbor.

Wade out onto the expansive peaceful tidal flats to your hearts content.

Explore in your kayak or canoe. Curly Creek on the other side of the Bay winds through the Sugar Plum Cays where you will surprise bone fish, barracuda, snapper and more, as you glide over the calm waters of the flats.

Go bone fishing just outside your own front door! Truly, some of the best flats for bone fishing on Andros, in the Bahamas, and for that matter anywhere in the world.

Go shelling! Walk for miles and miles when the tide is low looking for shells in less than ankle deep water. There are some special spots where you are sure to find beautiful sunrise talons and sand dollars.

Enjoy unforgettable sunsets that unfold all around you.

Experience the magic of walking on the sand flats in the moon light.

Set your own pace and wander where your curiosity leads you. At the house you have 4 kayaks, 1 canoe, 2 windsurfers with different size sails, and 1 small sailboat, plus life jackets. Snorkeling gear for 4, sand castle building stuff, croquet, Petanque (bocce). Also two bicycles.

Set up guided fishing trips, either bone fishing, reef fishing or deep sea fishing with excellent local guides.

Snorkel or SCUBA in The Tongue of the Ocean, on the World’s third largest barrier reef, with a 6000 foot Wall just a mile offshore. One of the foremost fully equipped dive resorts, Small Hope Bay Lodge is just a few miles away.

Explore the inland fresh water Blue Holes. Andros has the largest concentration of Blue Holes in the World. They are natural swimming pools, perfectly round holes filled with cool fresh water surrounded by pine forest or hard wood forest.

Go Bird Watching! A constant delight with many different species. Some of the birds are considered protected and migrate from afar to nest here in peace and tranquility. Others can only be found here.

Star gaze! A paradise, far from any light pollution, the sky is open from horizon to horizon.

Visit the home of the hand dyed fabric "Androsia". You can visit the factory and see them wax print and hand dye the beautiful cottons and even try one yourself. The factory outlet store is another of the treasures of Andros.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Built by owner Scot Kurth for my family. We enjoyed the privacy, seclusion and tranquility for 15 years. The only reason that we have moved is for school for our two boys. It is, and will always be Home.

Why the Owner Chose North Andros, The Bahamas:
We choose to build here because I grew up on Andros since 1965 and wanted to share it's Natural Environment and beauty with my family. It is a wonderful place to grow up or visit, surrounded by nature and the ocean. With the renewable energy system, I wanted to show what sustainability looks like and how well it works.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The tranquility is unsurpassed. You wake in the morning to the sound of the Ocean lapping at the shore and to the birds chirping. You can enjoy knowing that the house operates on a zero carbon footprint.
