The Banyans is an elegant private family home situated on a large estate property. The house was designed by renowned architect, Tom Scheerer and has been featured in many design books and magazines including Architectural Digest, Elle Décor. The house has four beautiful bedrooms all with generous marble and cedar bathrooms and large, graceful entertaining spaces inside and out. The house is surrounded by terraces and sweeping gardens overlooking the bay. The house was built new in 2006 on a historic bayside property with magnificent fichus and banyan trees, for which the house is named. The original shape of the heated pool was kept – which is the oldest on the island – and where the Duke and Duchess of Windsor swam in the 1950s.
The Banyans is staffed with a gardener and a house keeper who clean every day. For an additional weekly charge of $500 plus his offsite accommodation costs (around $600 per week) our Bahamian chef can prepare three delicious meals daily and cater to the tastes and requirements of all guests. Information on scuba diving, fishing and boating expeditions, spa treatments and restaurant reservations can be found in the house.
The Banyans has two large master bedroom suites and two additional double twin bedrooms each with private balconies. There is also a library/television room and a modern kitchen with all appliances and entertaining accessories. The garden features an outdoor fire pit and deck, a children’s tree house with swing and quiet spots with hammocks and furniture settings for reading and relaxing. All the rooms are beautifully furnished with designer furniture, fabrics and luxury linens. The main living and dining area (seating 14) opens out onto the pool deck, an indoor/outdoor breezeway and two separate pergolas.
There is an audio system throughout the house and a wireless network for internet connection. There are flat screen televisions and cable television in all but one bedroom and another in the library. The house has a central air conditioning system and a generator.
