A boat lover’s paradise awaits those that arrive at Grey Gables on Riddell’s Bay. On over 2 acres of waterfront, with a large dock, sits this highly desirable estate. Grey Gables is available to International Purchasers, PRC Holders (subject to an ARV amalgamation) and Bermudians and is listed with Rego Sotheby’s International Realty, priced at $4,900,000. Listing agent Helen Card gave Property Skipper a tour of this one-of-a-kind Warwick property.
Quintessential island charm greets every resident and visitor immediately upon arrival. The traditional styled main entrance with an elegant covered porch is part of the original historic house believed to date back to the 1700’s.
Upon stepping through the entrance a welcome hallway guides to a grand lounge, with a fireplace, measuring over 30 ft. long. Completed with exposed Cedar beams and a historic wig room just beyond, this space is the ideal setting for large parties.
Also off the main hallway is the den/library providing a cozy room to a read a book, catch up on your favorite television program or enjoy a private setting for a close friend get together. There is also a powder room completing the upper floor’s entertaining space.
Opposite the Library/Den is the Master suite containing excellent amounts of walk-in closets/storage, a study or private home office, a recently renovated bathroom as well as this large and bright master bedroom.
Also on the upper floor there are 2 additional guest bedrooms that are both comfortably designed and sized comfortably fitting double beds. Both guest bedrooms share a ‘Jack & Jill’ bathroom – providing an ideal set up for families with children.
Stairs down from the main floor lead to an adjoining self-contained one-bedroom guest apartment with living room, kitchenette and bathroom. This apartment has its own ARV and would be perfect for extra income or for a live in nanny/housekeeper. The apartment also has its own separate external door.
Back up through the main hallway to the grand lounge is a second staircase down to the ground floor of the property. The first room at the bottom is the exposed beamed dining room, which could comfortably host a large dinner party and features double doors which open up to a verandah looking over Riddell’s Bay.
From the dining room the kitchen is accessed through a butler’s pantry. The spacious kitchen benefits from views of the Bay from the sink. Off the kitchen is a ‘dog room’ and eat in dining area with a huge fireplace and floor to ceiling windows, which offers optimal space for a family snug or playroom. Completing downstairs is a full bathroom and also a sizable garage.
To the side of the house is a truly stunning pool area with brick bordering and a slatted cabana for outdoor parties and entertaining – the perfect setting for Bermuda memories under the island sun.
The separate one-bedroom cottage on the estate has been updated and is truly idyllic. It would work well as a guest residence, a long-term rental or a likely booked out vacation rental!
Guests will never want to leave!! The guest cottage has a private porch with spectacular views over Riddell’s Bay – a magical spot for any enviable moment be it a quiet lunch or an evening cocktail.
From the water – on the right you can see the cottage with dock in front, the large flat garden leading down to the waterfront and the exquisite Grade 3 Listed Grey Gables main house.
