Design house: 'The White House’ is the epitome of beachfront luxury and elegance

The White House is a sophisticated island retreat

Designed by Parisian architects and located in Harbour Island’s most prestigious neighbourhood, ‘The White House’ is elegant, sophisticated and luxurious.

If privacy is what you want, then rest assured, the expansive property is set on a 2.1-acre lot with 150 feet of beach frontage.

This coastal home features 6-bedrooms, 4-bathrooms, and can be reached by a long stretch of paved drive lined with swaying coconut palms and brilliant blooming bougainvillea which leads to the home’s elevated entrance.

The White House

Upon entering the house under the shade of a covered terrace, guests are greeted by a bright and naturally lighted foyer that leads to an open-plan kitchen and great room with crisp white décor, vaulted tongue-n-groove ceilings and floors made of honed Turkish travertine.

Floor-to-ceiling windows and doors offer stunning views of Harbour Island’s famous Pink Sand Beach and the crystal-clear Caribbean waters beyond. The generously-proportioned eat-in kitchen was designed and built in Rome and comes fully equipped with all state-of-the-art Miele appliances.

There are expansive sun decks, a dining pavilion and an outdoor kitchen. The home’s lower level features childrens’ bunk rooms, a games room and beach storage lockers.

With furniture custom-made in St Rémy de Provence by Bérangère Leroy, wood imported from Indonesia, and bathroom fixtures from Italy, this estate has been meticulously designed to be the perfect Bahamas beach house – comfortably elegant, stylishly chic and set in one of the most spectacular locations imaginable.

The home is located amongst some renowned neighbours, such as artist Anish Kapoor (who lives right next door), fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, interior designer Alessandra Branca, model Elle MacPherson and former CEO of Gap Mickey Drexler.
