"Bermuda's equivalent to life on Lake Lugano" is how one of our international clients has described The Boathouse at Manor House, an architecturally unique stand-alone residence at the nine-acre Manor House condominium development on the shoreline of Harrington Sound in Smith's Parish. The Boathouse was constructed c. 1929 and designed in Beaux-Arts style by Thomas Hastings ( 1858-1929) of the well known American design partnership of Carrere & Hastings, which also designed the New York Public Library and the Frick Museum. A Grade III historic building, the Bermuda National Trust's Architectural Heritage Series describes The Boathouse in this way: The interior of the Boathouse is spectacular. Bird's eye cedar and Bermuda limestone have have been worked in expert fashion. The ceiling of the main living room is lined in cedar to resemble the upturned bottom of a ship whilst the floor is planked in wide cedar boards caulked to resemble decking. The Bermuda stone is left unplastered and is carved and sculpted with elaborate dentil moulding. The tower looks as if it should belong to an ancient English church rather than a boathouse. The ironwork at the top incorporates a crab chasing a lobster, which in turn is chasing a bee... Full of character with a blend of Bermudian and European charm, the accommodation includes the impressive entrance hall, the firelit living room with its beautifully crafted cedar-panelled ceiling, a raised dining room, a kitchen & laundry, three bedrooms with shower rooms en-suite, two balconies and a partially enclosed porch that enhance the living space and extends the outstanding views. The middle floor comprises a guest suite, while the lower floor opens onto an adjoining dock with a plunge pool and dining area. The famous Manor House tower and the foot bridge over Harrington Sound Road make the Boathouse a Bermuda landmark. Boathouse residents may use the Manor House development's common tennis courts, swimming pool, boat storage, jetty and grounds. The conveniences of Flatt's Village, including restaurants and the Bermuda Aquarium & Zoo, are within walking distance.
