Step Inside This Sunny Bahamas Retreat
Located on Harbour Island, this charming home gives the island’s historic style a fresh update, with custom rooms and tons of space for entertaining—and it’s for sale.
Welcome to Harbour Island, one of the Bahamas’ Out Islands, which boasts sparkling sea views and a long stretch of soft sand beaches—and rows of colorful historic island houses, like this yellow and white charmer.
Located in Dunmore Town, nearly at the center of the narrow island, the Allamanda House possesses all the characteristics of a relaxed island retreat; updated and enhanced by a stunning custom interior, this property promises years of fun under the Bahamas sun.
Top: The pool and main house, with a stone deck made of locally sourced coral. Bottom: The living room—and the rest of the house—has neutral walls and light-colored furniture brought to life by pops of yellow, blue, and other cheery colors.
With spacious outdoor and indoor entertaining and living spaces, this home is an entertainer’s paradise. Those less inclined to host will love cozy family spaces like the living room, and anyone looking for some peace and quiet will adore the secluded rooftop deck.
The property has a detached two-bedroom guesthouse, which has the same comfortable, elegant décor as the main house.
Top: This cheery bedroom, one of six, has access to a patio. Bottom: A cozy bedroom with its own bathroom and a comfortable, tucked-away bed.
With six bedrooms, including the two in the guesthouse, the Allamanda House has plenty of space for friends and family to gather. Six bathrooms ensure all residents and guests have their own space, and the entire property—approximately 3,500 square feet—has room for gatherings big and small.
Top: All bathrooms have been carefully updated with modern fixtures and classic décor. Bottom: The kitchen maintains the traditional galley shape popular on the island.
The kitchen, like the rest of the house, was carefully decorated, with custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Imported wide plank French oak floors in this room—and throughout the house—give the contemporary space a relaxed, natural feel, and open shelving keeps the galley-style kitchen from feeling cramped.
The Allamanda House is listed by Robert Arthur of Coldwell Banker Lightbourn Realty. The asking price is $3,200,000; check out the full listing, with more images, here.
