All the amenities of the private Mid Ocean Club -- including a world-class golf course, beaches, dining, tennis, and moorings in Tucker's Town Cove -- are within an easy walk from this delightful 2.23-acre family compound that blends European style, Bermuda charm, a distinctive ownership pedigree and superb cove, Castle Harbour and even ocean views. Atlanta By The Sea and its Jolly Roger Cottage form a true estate. With a major 2010 renovation by respected Bermudian architect David Benevides and more recent systems updates, accommodation at the three-four bedroom main house is characterised by high ceilings, wood floors, spacious rooms, Italian tiles, French doors, multiple fireplaces, and glorious elevated views of Tucker's Town Cove. The living room, with its fireplace and bay window to the cove, adjoins the sun room with its hand-painted cabinetry and stunning verandah. The master suite with 'her' dressing room, 'his' walk-in closet and new travertine bathroom is on this main level along with two additional bedroom suites that share access to the shady courtyard garden. Steps from the living room lead down to the elegant firelit library, the formal dining room with adjoining terrace, and the center-island kitchen adjoined by a light-filled breakfast room, a panty, and a family room that was once an open courtyard. Spiral stairs from the library lead down to the large office, laundry, workshop, a staff bedroom and bathroom, and a small exercise room. This lower level is also accessible from the kitchen. To the west of the large swimming pool with its pergola-covered terrace, Jolly Roger is accessed by its own driveway and offers a further four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living rooms, a full kitchen and a convenience kitchen, plus picturesque Castle Harbour views. Currently, Jolly Roger is configured in two sections, providing ultimate flexibility and practicality of use. A breezeway connects Jolly Roger's one-bedroom guest bedroom suite to its charming private living room featuring old cedar beams, wood-burning fireplace and convenience kitchen. The newer three-bedroom/two-bathroom section of Jolly Roger (most recently, the property manager's residence) offers water views and holds wonderful potential to be updated for family use. The grounds at Atlanta By The Sea & Jolly Roger are full of interest and flowering plants. The rock gardens near the swimming pool are particularly beautiful and the lower east garden would be ideal for games of boules or croquet in the shade an immense poinciana tree. A joy for golfers, the property backs onto the 16th hole of the Mid Ocean Club course, which also provides a lovely venue for an evening stroll.
