Bermuda Home Finder: grand and elegant
There's an undeniable majesty about Old Battery. The main house was built in the 1920s and is in keeping with the grand style of that era. It sits on 4½ acres in Tucker's Town and has undisturbed views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Two guest cottages are part of the 4 South Road property. A tennis court and infinity pool add to the package.
The Property Group is offering the home for US$23 million.
“The property's main house was built in 1926 and completely renovated in the late Nineties,” said the property's agents, Vicky Hamshere and Gill Butterfield.
“There are approximately 4½ acres of immaculate grounds, including many trees and level areas for recreation.
"You can enjoy the fabulous infinity pool and stunning ocean views surrounding it on the southern side, or meander down the steps to the beach below, where the parrotfish abound.
"The hard-surface tennis court is an added bonus to all the facilities that this beautiful property offers.”
The home is “only minutes” from the Mid Ocean Club and Tucker's Point and 20 minutes from Hamilton, the agents added.
“On entering the grand and elegant main house, one sees a beautifully galleried living room with fireplace, perfect for winter evenings.
"There is an attractive wet bar and also a hidden wine cellar.
"Gracious stairs, or the glass elevator, leads from the living room to the upper balcony.
"On the upper floor is a bright and airy sunroom looking out to the ocean, the formal dining room and an immaculate kitchen, with a casual breakfast room adjacent. The lovely master bedroom suite has a cosy, cedar-panelled study or TV room with a wet bar, a small sewing room, a dressing room and a gym.”
Two en suite guest rooms are also on the upper floor; a guest room apartment is on the main level. A fully-contained housekeeper's apartment is connected by a stairway to the kitchen above.
The three-bedroom Bluebird Cottage is a listed building. The second cottage has one bedroom, a fully-equipped kitchen and a living room that opens on to an oceanfront patio.
Listing price: US$23 million
