Bermuda Home Finder: style with solar bonus
Imagine an air-conditioned summer without huge electricity bills.
Calabash offers just that.
It's a three-bedroom townhouse now for sale in a “sought-after development” off Chapel Road in Paget.
The property benefits from hot water and electric solar systems that have seen Belco bills plunge to $60 a month.
Harbour Realty Ltd is selling the home, at 7 Chapel Lane, for $1,425,000.
“[This is a] rare opportunity to purchase a well-maintained three-bedroom townhouse,” said realtor Jonelle Smith.
“This bright and airy home offers, on the main level, a living room with fireplace, dining room, kitchen and family room with a fireplace, powder room, laundry room and garage.”
A staircase built of Virginia cedar leads to the spacious master bedroom which has a fireplace, his and hers closets and a “large bathroom with double sinks, shower and jacuzzi”, she added.
Two additional bedrooms share a full bathroom.
“The front of the house has a lovely covered porch.
“Off the dining room there is a patio and the family room opens to another patio and lawn area.
“The owners have installed a solar hot water system and a solar electricity system. The electricity bill averages between $60 and $100 ONLY, during the summer months! The house is in very good condition and there are many upgrades throughout.”
Calabash is part of a development designed by Entasis Ltd and built by Gilbert Lopes in 2000.
“The exterior is traditional Bermudian style, yet the interior offers modern open-plan living,” Mrs Smith said.
“The ownership is freehold. There is a set of covenants that all owners must abide by, but there is no monthly maintenance fee.
“Several of the townhouses in the development, originally known as Woodlands, have excellent rental histories.
“Calabash makes an ideal home or great investment property, given the great location, private setting and proximity to the ferry and Hamilton.”
