Barbecue and dine on terrace off living room watching the sun set in the west. In the morning eat breakfast watching the sun rise in the east. All the while there is the view of Harrington Sound and Atlantic Ocean beyond!! Must love the colorful small geckos, great house companions and insect eaters! We aren't on the water, we are atop one of the highest hills, hence the beautiful views. The beaches are a bus ride away. Bermuda is 21 miles long, 1 mile at its widest, so the ocean is never far away. This is a 65 year old house that though it has been lovingly restored, has it's imperfections, some will love and some need to have more of a hotel experience!

About the owner: Our family has lived on the island for 235 years! I am a Bermudian who was raised in this exceptional home. My father who was a jeweler on the island, was raised in the 300 year old house next door which is now owned by my brother! My father was given this piece of his Dad's farmland with lovely views when he was ready to be married to my Mom. My Mom met my Dad when she and her sister came to Bermuda on a flying boat in 1948 from their home in Philadelphia. My Mom and Dad built this house you will be visiting, and we hope you love it as much as we do. I have always had one foot in Bermuda and one in the US. I moved to the US in 1980 to become a flight attendant for Delta Air Lines. A perfect profession for an islander privileged to have dual citizenship! I married a lovely New Hampshireite, Gary, in 1987. We have 2 children who have always loved Bermuda and have their status in Bermuda, having spent much time here.
Why the Owner Chose Smiths, Bermuda:
This much revered piece of property has been in our family for several generations. I say revered because it is on the second highest hill on the island with wonderful views. It is far enough away from the main roads that you hardly hear a vehicle! Bermuda is a gem of an island, then you get to High Terraces, and you feel like you are on your own, very private. Like you are the Crown Jewel in a very special spot. You have to understand though, our house is on the reasonable side of pricing for a reason! It is lovely, but it isn't a hotel!! In the summer every scrap of food must be put away quickly, as ants will find it wherever it is! If you have allergies it might not be the right place. We have heat and air conditioning to dry the atmosphere, but we've have a guest say it was musty at first! Welcome to our island!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Spectacular location for walkers, hikers. Getting away from it all, and for those who want to show their family what it is like to be a real Bermudian! The house is filled with good feelings and wonderful memories for me. I grew up here with five cousins next door, and other friends and family nearby. We walked down the hill almost every day in the summer to Harrington Sound. The odd day we didn't go there we were in our boat, or at one of the fabulous South Shore Beaches. We had forts on the properties, hand raised crows for pets when our parents wouldn't spring for a horse or a dog!!
