Once every so often, an opportunity comes along, and you know, that it was simply “Meant To Be”. Such was the case for the builder/owners of this 3 bedroom, 3 bath, beachfront getaway on Scotland Cay.
Positioned perfectly on the lot, as to take advantage of the views and island breezes, the home is divided between the upper main level, and lower guest level. The open plan living and dining room of the 1,248 sq. ft. main level features colonial-style French doors and windows that open to the wraparound porch and sun deck that is nestled among the native dune grasses. At either end of the main level, separated by the kitchen, are the master and guest bedrooms, each with their own bath.
Shaded by coconut palms, two spacious screened porches provide additional living and entertaining space, with the stunning turquoise and gentle sounds of the Atlantic ocean in the background.
The 624 sq. ft. lower level offers privacy from main level activities, and overlooks the vibrant tropical garden area of the property. It features a full bedroom and bath, with eat-in kitchen and screened porches of it’s own.
Mechanical systems are well thought out, with easy access for service and maintenance.
Amenities include 16,000 gallons of freshwater storage, back-up inverter system for power outages, a detached garage/workshop, and outdoor shower area.
Scotland Cay is a private island less than 200 miles east of Florida. With a 3,200 foot paved airstrip and 5 common area parks, this lush and well maintained development is easily accessible by private or charter flights. This fly-in community offers that unique combination of privacy that one would expect from an island, but with the added conveniences of daily ferry service, freight delivery services, and available on-site maintenance services. Scheduled airline flights into Marsh Harbour from the US east coast are available through major carriers and regional airlines. There are 4 scheduled ferry trips (20 minute ride) from Marsh Harbour to Scotland Cay each day, plus freight service to the island 3 days a week. Many retailers offer delivery to Scotland, via ferry or barge to the island, making provisioning a breeze.
