Wright Jenkins Home Design owner Dave Jenkins, was excited to be hired by his friend and colleague, Bahamian architect Andrew Stirling, to design the home for one of Andrew’s most exclusive clients. Andrew is a very gifted luxury home designer and so this was an honor for Dave to design a home for a couple whose name after all, is recognized around the world. Wanting to downsize from their older, 15,000+ sq. ft. residence, the couple are now building the new 5488 sq. ft. home, alongside their larger home. Their ample property is surrounded by water within an exclusive ocean access, Nassau development.
Taking advantage of the prevailing breezes is essential for Bahamian waterfront properties and in this case, the client wanted nearly every room to have a view of the waterway and the one of the family’s yachts, moored at the rear. So staggering the Great Room, Kitchen, Den and Main Level Master Suite was essential. Of course, each Guest Suite includes a private bath and outdoor terrace access and the two Upper Floor Guest Suites at the rear have their own expansive covered balcony to capture the views of the posh yachting community.
Since entertaining is a big part of the client’s life, so a large Kitchen with the most high level of finishes and modern conveniences were a must have. Not to mention the huge Walk-In Pantry, Wine Cellar and Bar. For convenience, there are two Powder Rooms on the Main Floor and a Full Bath for the gardner at ground level, with outside access. The Stair Tower offers 180 degree views so instead of an exercise room on the Main Level, it was decided that a space for the treadmill would be made at the Upper Landing.
From the large, comfortable Master Suite and expansive covered terrace, the home owners will enjoy a fantastic view of their own resort style pool and spa with a lush tropical garden space. At the other end of the home and above the 3-Car Garage plus Golf Cart, are spacious quarters for the housekeeper.
