Casa Hibiscus - Old Fort Bay
Living Area: 2,500 sq. ft.
Property Type: n/a
Casa Hibiscus is a 2,500 sq. ft. home located in the exclusive islands of Old Fort Bay gated community offering 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms on a single storey.
This property is truly unique on the island – once a Caribbean cottage transformed by the clean aesthetics of contemporary Italian design has incorporated wooden shutters, louvers and sash windows, maintaining the charm and practicality of traditional Bahamian houses.
Inside offers a new open floor plan allowing for easy, modern living in a high ceilinged space filled with sunlight.
The simple lines of the interior spaces detail the care taken during design and construction.
Subtle features such as perfectly fitted made to measure shelving and storage, frameless doors flush to walls and a retractable downdraft ventilation hood maintain the fresh, clean feel.
Wood, steel and other fine finishes were custom made and installed by the Italian company FB Arreda. Furniture and appliances are all European made, chosen to maximize comfort in all senses – extra deep sofas, 96 lateral inches of refrigerated space, luxurious pool recliners. Whatever your definition of Bahamian living, this home is the perfect back drop.
