Situated on approximately 3/4 of an acre in the settlement of Governor's Harbour and offering 100 feet of ocean frontage, Paradise Found represents the rich Loyalist history that came to identify The Bahamas during the mid-19 th Century. Constructed during the 1840s, the home's ornate trim, peaked roof and wraparound veranda speak to the Victorian architectural influence of that era, which in later years was also referred to as Gingerbread-style architecture. Built by local craftsmen using only locally sourced limestone block and hardwoods, Paradise Found has been lovingly maintained and restored to seamlessly blend the best of the past with the most modern conveniences of the present. Standout features of this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home include the original kitchen and hearth in the rear garden that serves as an intimate courtyard dining area, and a living room that extends onto an outdoor deck providing additional outdoor entertaining space. The residence's en suite master bedroom is located on the ground floor with the remaining two bedrooms on the second floor. A one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest cottage which is accessed by its own path and separate entry is tucked away at the back of the property allowing for extra privacy for guests, or for use to produce additional income. Lush native and mature landscaping keeps the property private and secure, creating an oasis right in the heart of the settlement of Governor's Harbour.
