"Glimmerview" is a stunning Bermuda home with close to 2 acres of spectacular grounds! Built in 1901 by Edward Peniston, an outstanding builder of his time, "Glimmerview" is represented in the Smith's Parish book of Bermuda's Architectural Heritage.
The house is soundly built with high Victorian style 10' ceilings throughout. Comprising an entry foyer that leads into a large living room with working fireplace, a spacious 'country' kitchen with stainless steel appliances and large pantry ideal for storage, a dining room that spills onto one of the patios overlooking the beautiful grounds, perfect for entertaining. There is a study off the kitchen with an office nook, a powder room and laundry.
The main staircase has heavy turned balusters and ornate carved newel posts - leading upstairs to two spacious bedrooms with a Jack n' Jill bathroom, a third guest bedroom with a full bathroom en suite. The lovely master bedroom has a very large master bathroom en suite, large walk-in dressing room and outside patio area. From the master bathroom there is a staircase leading to an iconic Widow's Watch Tower with commanding views of North Shore.
The house was tastefully restored and renovated in the 1990's and more recently in 2016 to add an en suite to the master bedroom. Special features include dark wood floors, crown moldings around the high ceilings, and split system air conditioners throughout.
"Glimmerview" has a mature well-maintained garden with distinctive poinciana trees and other mature specimen trees throughout the property, multiple patios, deep verandahs and sweeping views of the gorgeous grounds. There is a hand made Bermuda stone wall around the perimeter of the front garden as well as a garden potting shed, equipment shed and separate utility shed with gas heated water supply and pump.
Included is current planning permission for a swimming pool and water rights on the North Shore across from the bottom of Store Hill. This is an ideal property for horse lovers as the enormous grounds lend themselves perfectly to a paddock and stables.
