Located on Harbour Island, an isle many consider the jewel in the crown, Jewelbox boasts the colonial architecture the island, and the Bahamas, is so often celebrated for. Originally constructed in the late 1800’s, the historic loyalist home was reconstructed using new and repurposed wood in 2013. Sensitive to the home’s architectural past, the 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home features mahogany windows and doors, and cedar siding interiors and shingle roof. The exterior, which includes an outdoor covered dining area and sitting porch, is constructed of pressure treated pine and Abaco pine – a wood known to be a termite deterrent. Wrapped in old world charm, modern amenities include: wifi internet, cable television, surround sound, and split air conditioning throughout. Additionally, piping has been installed for a dip pool to be constructed at a future date. A favourite among design magazines, including Coastal Living and House Beautiful, this historic home boasts a healthy vacation rental income. Furthermore, Jewelbox is exempt from Property Taxes until 2033. Offered furnished with the exception of a few pieces.
