Listing of the Day

Location: Lyford Cay, Nassau, Bahamas

Price: $6.995 million

Positioned alongside a winding waterway, this large Bahaman residence—called Poinciana after the red flowered trees that bloom throughout the region —provides 175 feet of canal frontage in a secure gated community on Nassau island.

The home’s exterior juxtaposes imposing white columns with a vibrant pastel peach coloring befitting of the island setting. Double rows of white windows and a long guard rail, wrapping around an expansive veranda, complete the image of the quintessential island vacation home.

“The house has been completely upgraded,” said listing agent Craig Ashley of CORE Real Estate Group. The interior is cleanly modern with subtle tile and wood flooring that add texture to the various white, muted, and pastel tones that grace the home’s walls.

The residence’s many windows, high ceilings and recessed lighting ensure it “gets a lot of light,” Mr. Ashley added.

Since the home’s most recent remodeling, Mr. Ashley noted it has been unlived in by homeowners. Furthermore, the residence is a true turnkey vacation—its purposefully paired furnishings are included with the home’s purchase.

Out back, stone steps lead to a pool, overlooking a canal and surrounding yard. A nearby private dock gives the homeowner room to park a boat.

“Water sports, fishing [and] sailing” are accessible from the backyard, Mr. Ashley said.

“It’s just a place to go and get away from the rat race and unwind,” he said.
