Bermuda Lifestyles: Privacy

To live happily, let us live privately”, wrote the 18th-Century French poet, Jean Pierre Claris de Florian._DSC0833-1

While there will always be demand in Bermuda for homes offering quality waterfront, beachfront and water views, our most recent sales here at Sinclair Realty LLC provide evidence of a new trend with a previously under-rated attribute emerging to the fore … a quest for privacy. Here for your consideration are two very special, yet extremely different, properties — at varying price points — which offer this precious commodity:

Rural Home Site Near The Mid Ocean Club. If you are seeking a private home site with rural character, astounding water and golf course views, along with a convenient ‘east of Hamilton’ location — it will be challenging indeed to find a more intriguing choice than this 1.1-acre building site tucked away on Judkin Lane at the Smith’s-Hamilton Parish boundary.  With permission in-principle for over 6000 square feet of development, the property is offered by Sinclair Realty Bermuda | Christie’s International Real Estate at $1.2 million gross. What makes it so private? Your immediate neighbours include the Mid Ocean Club and the Bermuda National Trust, plus conservation zoning in the surrounding area encourages a mindful approach to development.

One Of The Most Private Homes In Tucker’s Town.   Even in what is widely considered Bermuda’s most exclusive residential enclave, there are actually only a handful of estates that cannot be glimpsed – at least to some degree — by the passerby.   Ensconced from it neighbours on two lush acres with an amazing deepwater dock and views across the water to Frick’s Point, Shell Point on Castle Harbour is one of the fortunate few.   Behind the verdant plantings and whitewashed garden wall is an understated gem comprising a two-to-three bedroom main house, a delightful guest cottage, and an apartment suitable for guests or staff.  We love this property for many reasons, but especially for its  authenticity (walking the grounds of Shell Point, you can be nowhere else but beautiful Bermuda)  and for its supreme privacy.   Yet, the beaches, golf, dining and other amenities of the private Mid Ocean and Tucker’s Point clubs are within an easy walk or golf cart ride.

Pour vivre heureux, vivons caches!
