This Venetian style waterfront mansion is located in Ocean Club Estates in Paradise Island, Bahamas with stunning views of Nassau Harbour. The gated home features 5 bedrooms, 5 full and 1 half bathrooms, paneled formal dining room with, great room with 35 foot cathedral ceiling and three 30 foot Palladian style windows accented by stone archways and columns, circular mahogany bar, butler’s pantry with wine cooler, gourmet kitchen, laundry room, 2nd floor landing with library, two 2-car garages on either side of the home, covered verandah and patio, swimming pool, stone gazebo with spa and a private marina dock.. On each side of the driveway, attached to each garage, is a 1 bedroom guest house with a kitchenette, en-suite, walk in wardrobe and patio which opens up to landscaped gardens. t is listed at $14,500,000.

I love the symmetrical exterior and the palm tree lined drieway. The interior is spacious and ornate and the backyard is tranquil. I also dig the fact that they attached 2 guest houses to each of the two garages. It’s a good use of space instead of having two separate buildings. Also, t’s definitely better than having your guests sleep in the house! HA

    Venetian my @ss. The swirled columns in the back don’t count. I think the house tries unnecessarily to be formal. This is the Bahamas – who are you going to impress? For the price I’d rather get something in Naples or Marco Island.

    This is a Venetian palazzo: http://www.artonfile.com/images/VENICE-50-2.jpg

    The house here resembles that not at all. It looks like a midwestern McMansion plunked down on an island, which I guess is what it actually is. Where’s the casual elegance that should be in a tropical home? This place looks plain stuffy. I get the sense that the current owners have never once spent a day with the windows wide open and without the aircon running full blast.

    I suppose I’m old school, but if I were to live on/near New Providence, I’d want to be in Lyford Cay. I’d much rather live near the likes of Heidi Horton and the Guinnesses than on Paradise Island with all the tourists, and would rather look out over a white sand beach than an overly-busy harbor entrance.

    Ditto above-would rather have beach than dock. But the hot tub area is nice.

    The yacht along with the houses on the side, both the left and the right, look much better.
