November 9, 2009 – The island of Great Abaco, one of fastest growing and most exclusive destinations in The Bahamas, will soon be home to the luxury residential community Serenity Point, where a limited number of home sites have just been introduced.
The 40-acre gated community will be distinguished by five miles of pristine white-sand coastline on Schooner Bay Beach and will include 24 beachfront and hilltop home sites, each with varying elevation and featuring stunning island views.
Spearheaded by master real estate developer, Alexis Nihon II, president of Anco Lands LTD, the high-end development broke ground this summer. “This part of the Bahamas is on the edge of emerging as one of the world’s leading luxury destinations. Our goal is to capture the natural beauty of this spectacular island and create an exclusive environment that offers residents the ultimate retreat and investment for their families,” said Nihon.
In recent years Abaco has experienced tremendous activity, making the area one of the most coveted destinations in the Caribbean. “The long-term value that Serenity Point offers property owners is outstanding. Serenity Point will perfectly complement the island’s incredible allure, gaining the notice of buyers not only from Toronto to Miami, but from London to Los Angeles, as well,” indicated Nihon.
Easy access to the community will be facilitated by daily direct flights to and from the U.S. into The Abacos at two international airports, or, for those traveling by private plane, a modern FBO airport.
Centered at the heart of Schooner Beach Bay, Serenity Point will offer its residents exclusive facilities, including a full-service private beach club with an infinity pool overlooking the majestic crystal blue ocean, tennis courts with dressing rooms on premise and an eco-conscious solar power golf cart for each home site. Owners will also enjoy personalized amenities with Serenity Point’s luxe concierge services including personal chefs, private yacht rentals, fishing charters, diving and island expeditions.
Emphasizing the importance of eco-conservation, the community will feature low-maintenance landscaping, rainwater holding tanks and renewable energy sources.
For a unique island lifestyle experience, Serenity Point will be conveniently located adjacent to Schooner Bay Village, an exciting new seaside village, currently under development, which will feature a world-class harbor, restaurants, inns, extensive storefront retail and shops, including a farmer’s market, with local produce and fresh seafood. For Serenity Point residents, this charming community is just a short walk down the beach or a short roll down the road by golf cart.
With Serenity Point’s Builder’s Program, homeowners have the option to engage the services of the internationally renowned architects and interior designers at Chancey Design Partnership to create their ideal Bahamian home. The team of professionals will provide owners with a choice of complete schematic designs that perfectly align with the ambience of the community. Owners can tailor these designs to their needs, or they can start with a fresh palette to design their dream home. Homeowners may also select their own team for home building according to the community’s building guidelines.
The Abacos are home to countless offshore cays, the third largest barrier reef in the world and 130 miles of emerald-blue, naturally sheltered waters. The area has become a world-famous destination for scuba diving, snorkeling, yachting and fishing. Also, with its bustling marina culture and excellent weather conditions, the region has been heralded by global media as the sailing capital of the world. On land, the destination plays host to three championship caliber golf courses that attract professional and serious amateur golfers year round, and a 20,000-acre natural preserve, with unique wildlife and world-renowned fresh water caves.
Marsh Harbour, a few minutes from Serenity Point, is the third largest town in the Bahamas, and has all the subtle charm of a true Bahamian village. It is a lively marina, offering full services for yachts and sailing vessels of every description. Marsh Harbour offers fine dining, excellent shopping, medical facilities, and countless departure points for sea excursions to the various cays lining the coastline.
