Description: The "Seascape" Main House Parcel # 1 a very attractive 1.16 acre property positioned towards the south eastern end of Man O War Cay. The tract of land stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Eastern Harbour of Man O War. It is also the only Eastern Harbour property which can claim a small beach as one of its assets. The main house offers panoramic views over Eastern Harbour. The guest house (The "Snuggery") which sits on the highest point of the property, has an unchallenged view looking out over the azure waters that stretch to the offshore reef, and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Paths connect the deep water 80 ft long dock (with ending 20ft by 8 ft L) to the 2 houses, and further direct you to the ocean side of the property. Proximate to the main house there is an area which was long ago cleared, and still used for the gardening of fruit trees and vegetables. Never marketed since the original purchase some 70 years ago, it has only now become available because of the next generation's changing personal interests. The property must be seen to be fully appreciated !
More Details: The main house, built by noted Man O War master carpenter, Emerson Albury, offers panoramic views over Eastern Harbour. It was built in the classic style favoured by the earliest of the second home owners who came to the Cay. It has 466 sq. ft. of inside spaced divided between a kitchen / living/ dining room, a bedroom and a bathroom. Outside it has 352 sq. ft. of covered porches, and 93 sq. ft. of uncovered porches. A small roof deck is located above the covered porch and is accessed by ladder from the ground floor porch. A cistern with 11,000 gallons of water sits under the main house and this is plumbed to provide water to both the main house, the guest house and to the dock.
The guest house (The “Snuggery”) which sits on the highest point of the property, has an unchallenged view looking out over the azure waters that stretch to the offshore reef, and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. This house is another built in classic, simple, but functional Man O War style. It consists of 278 inside sq. ft. containing a bedroom, a bathroom, and a walk in store room. Outside there is 215 sq. ft. of covered porch and 56 sq. ft. of uncovered porch. From both the bedroom and porch there are open and unparalleled views out over the Atlantic Ocean beyond.
This offering presents a rare opportunity to purchase a very unique property. The ownership is steeped in history, with the present owners, being the third generation of a family that was one of the first to come to Man O War in the late 1940s.
