Greenbower – a secluded haven on the edge of town
Propertyskipper had the pleasure of being invited by Sue Sharpe at Rego Sotheby’s International Realty to take a tour of “Greenbower” in Paget.
Just a few moments from Hamilton on Trimmingham Hill sits “Greenbower”. Tucked away from the road, it is immediately noticeable that the property has a rare combination of seclusion and peace whilst being in close proximity to the hustle and bustle of Hamilton. The property is set back from the entrance and the driveway is surrounded by mature shrubs, including Bougainvillea and Jasmine, which add to the tranquil surroundings as you arrive.
Entering into the front hall and through the formal dining room you immediately get a glimpse of the magnificent views across Hamilton Harbour, which can be seen from several rooms around the house. The cozy outdoor porch beyond is truly spectacular, with Ocean Sails weather blinds on all sides providing for a year-round space to relax and entertain.
This porch connects to the large sitting room via French doors with elegant furnishings, custom built cabinetry, modern lighting and a working fireplace. The kitchen has been recently renovated with Christiana solid wood cabinetry, Wolf appliances and reclaimed pine plank flooring creating a real showpiece kitchen as the hub of the house. There is a vast island bar in the center of the room, perfect for any chef, in addition to window seating, a dining area, and separate sitting area to relax or watch the built in TV. Adjacent to the kitchen is a beautifully finished laundry room with the same cabinetry and storage galore, opening to a carport for convenient family access.
The versatility of the property makes it a home suitable not only for a large family but also for a couple. On the main floor is a grand master suite with high ceilings, harbor views, plenty of storage and master bathroom. There are a further 3 bedrooms and a bathroom along the corridor which can be purposed to suit your family’s needs. Presently configured as a bedroom and two large offices, they can also be used as additional bedrooms, a playroom, a separate lounge – the options are endless.
The flexibility continues as you venture downstairs, currently set up to include a gym, in addition to a guest suite with bedroom, kitchenette and recently renovated bathroom that could potentially be closed off from the main house to make a second apartment. Along with the spacious storage rooms, one aspect of the second story that you are unlikely to repurpose is the rustically designed wine cellar – with stone shelving and red brick color walls – it was a great shame to be visiting this room during working hours!
Also on this level is a one-bedroom apartment with a private entrance, separate patio area, laundry room and its own assessment number. The apartment has been modernized with an open plan kitchen/lounge, good size double bedroom and a fully modernized bathroom – given its location it would make a perfect vacation rental or long term let.
All around the property there are outdoor seating areas, with pergolas to provide both shade and tranquility. There is also a work shop/garden storage room. The mature garden bordered with woodland reserve, provides almost total privacy from neighboring properties without impacting any of the views. The pool area is well situated with easy access from the house, total seclusion and dramatic views of the Harbour. With both a bathroom and a kitchenette next to the pool this makes another fantastic area for entertaining or for a quiet day soaking up the sun.
The lower garden is a dream space for adults and children alike with mostly flat lawns providing an ideal play area for trampolines or football. The garden is accentuated by mature cultivated landscaping including a large variety of fruit trees. The whole property sits on just under an acre of Res 2 land.
“Greenbower” is a move in ready property that has been kept immaculately by the current owners. For those that desire a quick commute to work, a property that has flexibility for families or potential income generation, stunning harbor views all set in a peaceful sanctuary and highly desirable neighborhood – “Greenbower” ticks all the boxes.
“Greenbower” is priced at $4,250,000. Please contact Sue Sharpe on 299-1511 for further details or firstname.lastname@example.org
