Full of charm and potential, Bagatelle is one of the original homes in the exclusive residential enclave now known as Riddell's Bay Gardens & Nature Reserve, which is favoured for its 60+ acres of beautiful parkland, walking trails, and high-end estates - a veritable 'Tucker's Town of the West'. What began as a waterfront farmhouse in the early 1900s (when Bermuda was known colloquially as New York City's vegetable garden) grew along with the island's tourism industry to become an international-caliber vacation home prized by its current owners for over 50 years. As one of the smaller properties available to Non-Bermudian buyers, Bagatelle speaks softly. It is understated. Yet its position and views are spectacular, as are its aquamarine waters, deep-water dock, and sunsets. The coral entrance hall and bar lead to the generous sun room with access to a long waterside veranda and dock with boat slip. The living and dining room feature beamed ceilings, a raised wood-burning fireplace, and access to the veranda. The banquette-lined breakfast room adjoins the large kitchen and other utility spaces, which are well designed but ready for updating, The main floor is completed by a water-view bedroom, two bathrooms, and an internal access garage-cum-recreational room or fifth bedroom. Upstairs, a snug den with raised fireplace, a study with two walk-in closets, two guest bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and the master bedroom suite offer sparkling Great Sound, as well as parkland, views. Off the master suite, a covered terrace provides a shady, private corner for reading or afternoon tea. Beyond is the guest cottage, comprising a sitting room, bedroom, and two full bathrooms. An outbuilding for storage is a practical benefit of the delightful property. Within a short drive is famed Horseshoe Bay Beach, three grocery stores, restaurants, two private schools, and the Coral Beach & Tennis Club.
