Serenity Point Opens

March 19th, 2010

Many thanks to more than 100 special guests who attended our opening day celebration at Serenity Point on Saturday, March 6th.

Festivities took place from 1-4 pm on a gorgeous Bahamian day. Guests arrived through the main entrance and were taken by golf cart to the hilltop home sites to enjoy a reception with hors d’oeuvres and champagne. They delighted in scenic views from three viewing towers Serenity Point constructed to simulate the vantage points home buyers would experience in a typical home design.

With tours of the hilltop, ridge and beach front home sites complete, guests made their way down to the beach to experience some local flavors in music, art and food.

Along the pathways to the beach, Walt and Sandra Chancey of Chancey Design Partnership displayed various artist renderings and home designs, along with interior design materials and color palettes.

Passing along the beachfront home sites, guests were served conch salad and various cocktails in coconut-cups to enjoy while mingling on Schooner Bay Beach. (It was lovely to hear one guest proclaim they had never seen sand like this, “it’s like sugar!”.)

Alexis Nihon II, president of Anco Lands Ltd, and Gustaf Hernqvist, Senior Sales and Marketing Director, addressed the guests.

“For decades, we have shared a deep commitment to the growth of the Abacos. Today, Great Abaco continues to emerge as a highly coveted destination, for both real estate and tourism, and we are thrilled to contribute to the fabric of this island’s prosperity,” said Alexis Nihon II.

“Our goal is to capture the natural beauty of this spectacular location and create an exclusive community that offers residents the ultimate family retreat and long-term value,” continued Nihon.

In attendance were local businessmen, government officials, real estate agents, local and international press and prospective buyers from the Bahamas, North America and Europe.

The party wrapped up with a surprise junkanoo parade. Junkanoo dancers, singers and musicians made their way down from the hilltop to the beach where we enjoyed the revelry and Bahamian hospitality.

Our Architect, Walt Chancey

December 10th, 2009

At Serenity Point we want to build an oasis of residences at Schooner Bay that reflect elegance, modernity and evoke the Bahamian touch. As such, our emphasis is on homes more open to the Abaconian landscape. Homes that merge with their surroundings.

Home Design by Walt Chancey

To bring that dream to fruition, we teamed up with Chancey Design Partnerships for both the architecture and design of Serenity Point.

The firm has an impeccable reputation and the team has designed many beautiful homes in the region. The company has a sharp emphasis on personalized service, and a firm foundation in true design excellence.

Much of this is due to company’s Founder, Walton H. Chancey, AIA, who is also the Senior Managing Partner as well as the Director of Marketing. For over 20 years, he has been directly responsible for multi-family, mixed-use and commercial developments, hospitality projects, healthcare work, signature single-family residences and historic restoration projects.

In his personal life and his business pursuits, Chancey adheres to the same philosophy, “Work hard, work happy, and live every day with passion.”

This motto is evident in his commitment to the clients and projects he undertakes.

An Auburn University alumnae, he worked for several firms before deciding to move to Ybor City with his wife, Sandra. He and his wife established their business in the the historic neighborhood in Tampa, Florida in 1989. There, he helped revitalize development. Walt was so passionate about the neighborhood and about helping other area businesses prosper that he spent much of the first 5 years doing local renovation. His company eventually merged with designers and thus became Chancey Design Partnership.

Over the years, his team has won numerous awards and been featured in more than 40 publications. They have justly acquired a reputation for being able to interpret clients needs while creating homes that fit their location’s environment and lifestyle.

Because Chancey Design specializes in architecture, planning and interior design, they are able to take a project literally from the ground up. The company works from the land-planning through to completion of the finished residence.

“We believe that many projects lose a lot in the handoff between the architects and interior designers,” Chancey says. “We feel that we have a better, more holistic product because of an early interiors relationship. Our interior designers are not just decorators. They understand space planning, the layouts and they work with us in the early part of designing a project. Architecture and interior design are so important to each other.” (Source: PDF)

Chancey Design specializes in creating groundbreaking yet subtle island homes, homes that weave smoothly into the landscape they occupy, make them a perfect choice for our Serenity Point Builder’s Program.

While maintaining the mass, scale and materials of the local vernacular, the houses at Serenity Point present a refreshing contemporary take on Caribbean Architecture, embracing how we live today. Designed with the topography of the site, each house creates a unique experience, maximizing views to the beach and water. Large expansive doors and windows offer an unparalleled view to the beach and water that begins to dissolve the threshold between indoor and outdoor living spaces. Although these elements have a more modern quality, materials like locally quarried coral stone, flat tile roofs and stucco add a traditional texture to both the interior and exterior spaces creating a warm and inviting palette that grounds the design in comfort and familiarity and blends harmoniously with traditional Bahamian architecture.

Only 24 luxury home sites are available at Serenity Point on Schooner Bay Beach. If you are interested in purchasing a property or participating in our Builder’s Program, contact us for more information.
