Overboard - Tuckers Town
This charming home “Overboard” is located on the shore of one of the most protected inlets in Bermuda. Occupying approximately half an acre in the prestigious residential community, of Tucker’s Town, the home enjoys nearly 200 feet of waterfront. Built in 1928, this 4-bedroom, 5 ˝ bathroom house was extensively renovated in the late 90s and has had continual upkeep and renovations since the present owners purchased it in 2012.
Attractive wrought iron gates at the entrance are remotely controlled, and open to mature grounds, enhanced with colourful flowers, bougainvillea, Bermuda citrus, banana trees and coconut palms. The highlight of the property, in addition to its location, is a private dock that can accommodate a boat up to 35 feet in length. The dock is equipped with all the essentials, including bollards, bumper strips and a ship-to-shore power line to charge the boat’s battery- a feature that is truly a boater’s dream. Also on this lower waterside level is a bricked courtyard and built-in barbecue making it a superb entertaining spot.
Entering the foyer of the house, you are greeted with stunning views of Tucker’s Town Cove. The cedar wood throughout, including floors, hand-carved bookcases, fireplace mantle, ceiling beams and windows, create a warm ambience. There are four fireplaces in total and water views from almost every room. There is a comfortable flow from the living room to the family room, dining room, bar area and kitchen. The kitchen was redesigned in the late 90s with light wood cabinetry and sunny Mexican tile. It is very accommodating with its breakfast nook and a back door that opens to the garden to pick fresh fruit for breakfast! All the main rooms open out onto a partially covered pool terrace, perfect for entertaining. From the family room, a staircase leads down to the fourth bedroom with en-suite bath, a sitting room, and laundry room. This lower level with its own separate entrance is equally suitable as a guest suite and the sitting room area could easily be adapted to be a nanny annex.
The east wing of the house features the built-in office with fireplace, guest bathroom and a bedroom with en-suite bath and fireplace. Beyond is the master-suite with a sitting room/den, changing area, linen closet, walk-in closet, master bedroom and bathroom. There is also a small bedroom with en-suite bath, which is ideal for children’s bunk beds and gives a perfect solution to those families who want to have their youngsters close by. Alternatively, for those who wish to have total privacy, this area could become another dressing room for the master suite.
Adjacent to the main house, there is a bricked walkway that passes through a Bermuda moongate to a separate, self-contained guest cottage with bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and a charming little porch overlooking the water.
This property is ideally situated only minutes from Bermuda’s famous Mid Ocean Club and the Tucker’s Point resort, ten minutes from the airport and twenty minutes from Hamilton. With golf, tennis, swimming and boating right on the doorstep, it is a delightful family home or the perfect home-away-from-home, providing an ideal escape from harsh winters abroad and the opportunity either to relax and enjoy the tranquil setting or to entertain friends and family.
