When the 11 private homes that form the exclusive Shell Point enclave at the Rosewood Tucker's Point Resort in Tucker's Town were first offered for sale, the site that would become Island House was the very first to sell, and for good reason. The fact that the property's location offers one of the highest waterfront elevations in the area combined with an especially beautiful setting on Castle Harbour and the positioning of the Tuckers' Point Club golf course to the south are all cornerstones of its intrinsic appeal. Designed by respected Bermudian architect Harold Conyers, Island House today comprises a well considered 6000 total sq. ft. set on an acre of blossoming trees and plantings with swimming pool, spa, boat house, and dock. As well suited as a holiday home as it is for full-time residency, the main house provides up to five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and one partial bathroom. A unique features is that both the master suite and a second, very generous bedroom suite are conveniently located on the ground floor. High ceilings, French doors, classic finishes and splendid Castle Harbour vistas characterise most rooms. The fire-lit living room, family room, dining room, and luxurious master bedroom all open to the deep veranda overlooking the freeform swimming pool and harbour for enjoyment of elegant indoor-outdoor island living at its best. The center-island kitchen includes a wet bar which defines the conterminous dining room with its charming bay seating area. A rear hall off the kitchen is thoughtfully placed with easy access to the golf cart garage ( the ability to get to and from the nearby beaches, golf, and dining at the private Mid Ocean Club and Tucker's Point Club by golf cart is one of the joys of living on Shell Point Road) as well as the laundry and internal access car garage. Upstairs, a delightful third bedroom plus a spacious fourth bedroom suite with separate dressing areas, abundant closet space, and an en suite bathroom provide further guest accommodation. The upstairs floor plan is completed by the excellent office or fifth bedroom with hardwood floors, French doors and a balcony overlooking the pool and sea. Walking down to the dock, the two-storey boat house offers optionality for additional studio guest accommodation away from the main house, plus an undercroft for storage of paddle boards, kayaks, inflatables and fishing equipment as well as an outdoor shower. Bermuda may be a small island, but it's a much larger place when one owns a dock and a boat. Castle Harbour and nearby Frick's Point, Castle Roads and Castle Island s-- the later being amongst Bermuda's Unesco World Heritage Sites -- are simply stunning with clear, sandy-bottomed turquoise waters. The owners of Island House also have a registered mooring in the waters off the property, which they will help facilitate transfer to a new owner.
