Description: Step back into a past era which in words is difficult to adequately describe ! This property has been owned, since the early 1950s by a family who were one of the first of the 2nd homeowners ever to discover, and decide to build homes on Man O War Cay. This Atlantic Ocean to Eastern Harbour 2.68 acre sea to sea property is a time capsule of earlier days with its unspoiled beauty rare now to find. The main house sits on an elevated ridge with stunning views, and remains unchanged since it was first built by famous local craftsman trained in Man O War's famous boat yards. Later a guest house and guest living room / kitchen house were added, along with a workshop / bunk house building. An existing deep water dock is located on 170 ft of Eastern Harbour frontage and offers access to one of the most protected harbours in all of the Bahamas. Just wandering the paths through the property excites the senses and makes one think of times gone by. Never before offered this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a property where time has stood still and history has been made.
