'Overboard' – An iconic Bermuda home
One of the ‘perks’ of working at Propertyskipper is the occasional opportunity to view some of Bermuda’s most iconic properties. ‘Overboard’ is one of the most recognizable homes on the island overlooking the clear blue waters of Mid-Ocean’s ‘Baby Beach’, it truly is a dream island home. Just minutes from both Mid Ocean Club and Tuckers Point Beach Club as well at the Rosewood Bermuda hotel - golf, beach and boating enthusiasts would be at the heart of Bermuda’s luxury tourism playground. Having recently had a reduction in price to $7,500,000, this Tucker’s Town residence is gathering interest both locally and from overseas and it is not difficult to understand why.
Arriving through the gated entrance into the well-manicured property there is a sense of understated grandeur. The original cottage has been expanded and modernized over the years to create a modern five-bedroom home with adjacent guest cottage – perfect for guests or staff. The main entrance opens up into a magnificent reception hall with lovely views over the Cove, perfect for evening cocktails. The hallway leads into the ‘great room’ with a spectacular picture window overlooking the water, plenty of seating for a party and also the dining area with bar. To the rear of the dining table is the kitchen with a cozy breakfast nook in the window. There is lapsed planning permission to extend the kitchen into the side garden should a buyer wish.
Returning into the main hallway there is a magnificent cedar study or library with views over the pool deck, this could potentially be converted into a further bedroom as there is a full bathroom opposite. Further down the hall is the first bedroom with en-suite bathroom. This room is next to a TV/sitting room that leads out onto the pool deck through cedar doors. Beyond this, is the spacious master suite with a dressing area or sitting room, en-suite bathroom, ‘his-and-hers’ closets and then the main bedroom with sensational views over the water, this is a true sanctuary. There is a further double bedroom with en-suite, accessed through the dressing area. With some small reconfiguration this bedroom could be accessed through the TV/sitting room, or could work well as a study if you wished to switch with the existing study near the entrance.
The lower level is accessed back through the dining area and leads down to a stunning guest suite that visitors will not want to leave. The guest suite has easy access to the outside waterfront, an en-suite bathroom and plenty of storage. This level also benefits from a second bedroom area, so families that are staying would be adjacent. The lower level is completed with a utility room and further bathroom which can also be accessed from outside and used as a pool changing area.
‘Overboard’ on its own is an incredibly impressive property, but what really elevates it to its iconic status is not only the setting but the outside space. You could spend hours watching the world go by in the Cove, whether from the spacious sitting area by the pool, the bar-b-q and lounging deck, or from the dock itself. There is unlikely a more well thought out or designed entertaining area on the island and certainly not one with the setting that ‘Overboard’ enjoys. The Cove is wonderful for adults and children alike, for exploring on Kayaks or Paddle Boards, swimming up to ‘Baby Beach’ or setting off for the day on your boat. This is the Bermuda home that dreams really are made off and whether you are thinking of making Bermuda your home or if you are considering moving to this outstanding area of the island – propertyskipper would certainly recommend a call to Margaret Young at Rego Sotheby’s International Realty for a tour of this very special property.
