About Dilly House 5 Ridgetop

Positioned on an enviable elevated lot allowing for stunning views of the beautiful Bahamian waters, Dilly House is a 4,500 sq. ft. Bahamas home located within Old Fort Bay - one of the most sought after gated, waterfront communities on New Providence Island. The drive to the home under a canopy of Silk Cotton Trees foretells of the classic elegance that awaits you on arrival.

The exterior architecture of the Old Fort Bay home boasts a luxurious Tuscan touch, with clay tiling and green vines creeping the walls. The home is surrounded by lush green lawns and mature tropical plants including Poinciana, Bamboo, Bougainvillea and of course the eponymous Dilly Trees. Partial ocean views can be enjoyed directly from the gardens whilst a staircase of picturesque native stone steps carry you down directly to the beautiful private white sand beach.

The interior of this 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath Bahamas home is just as beautiful as the exterior, decorated in a classic colonial style featuring delicate pastel patterns and an abundant use of natural materials. The living, dining and kitchen are all positioned on an open plan, with the kitchen divided from the dining room with a breakfast bar. The kitchen is extremely well appointed, featuring Wolf and Sub Zero appliances and beautiful granite countertops. Large French Doors allow ample natural light to fill the main living space and also provide access to a beautiful covered patio equipped with elegant furnishings, the ideal spot for alfresco dining and entertaining.

A sweeping staircase carries you to the second floor where you can find bedrooms, a media room and separate reading room/office. The breathtaking master suite is generously sized and has been tastefully decorated to compliment the balcony which is accessed via French Doors and is encompassed by beautiful bougainvillea. This is the perfect spot to relax and take in the views of the elegant gardens and the opalescent blue waters beyond. The master suite is completed with a generous master bath featuring marble floors and Carrera marble countertops, plus an oversized shower also finished in marble and a separate dressing room with his and hers closet. The guest bedrooms are individually decorated and are complete with travertine flooring which features throughout the home, whilst all guest bathrooms feature shell stone countertops and Kohler bathroom fixtures which also feature throughout.

This home features direct access to Old Fort Bay Club and is sold fully furnished. Old Fort Bay is ideally located in close proximity to shops, restaurants, schools and just a short distance from Linden Pindling International Airport. Beautiful private residence or an investment property offering exceptional rental income potential and qualifies for Bahamian Permanent Residency application.
