Perhaps not as famous as its namesake in Washington DC – nonetheless The
White House is one of the most luxurious homes in The Bahamas and the perfect
definition for a beachside home. The home, found in a prestigious neighbourhood
in Harbour Island, comprises six bedrooms and four bathrooms with the pink sand
beach and crystal clear Caribbean waters literal steps away. Set on 2.1 acres
of land – the property is perfect for those seeking privacy in this island
The Bahamas is known to have the most stable property market within the Caribbean and is completely foreign buyer-friendly. Foreigners can buy in the Bahamas without restrictions and buyers enjoy the same rights as the local citizens, making it the best option for a second home.
The home – and surrounding area – has an interesting link to art. The home itself owned by a renowned French art dealer, was designed by Parisian architects, with an open-plan kitchen, white décor and vaulted ceilings made of honed Turkish travertine. The home includes floor-to-ceiling windows and doors ensuing the stunning view of the beach is never wasted. A lot of care and thought were put into building the home with materials from all over the world being utilised. Custom made furniture from St Rémy de Provence by Bérangère Leroy, wood imported from Indonesia and bathroom fixtures from Italy make this home truly special.
The home is also surrounded by notable artistic neighbours. Right next door is sculptor Anish Kapoor who is most famous for his works Leviathan, Sky Mirror and Cloud Gate (AKA “The Bean” in Chicago’s Millenium Park) . Other prominent neighbours include fashion designer Diane Von Furstenburg, interior designer Alessandra Branca, art dealer Durand Ruel and Elle MacPherson who is a model and actress. Mickey Drexler, CEO of Gap and Ron Perelman, chairman of Revlon, also have a home in the neighbourhood.
The exterior of the home allows for users to fully capitalise on its excellent location with a dining pavilion, an outdoor kitchen and spacious sun decks. The below levels of the home also feature a children’s bunk room, a games room and storage lockers.
