Aurora – A fitting name for a stunningly beautiful estate residence that truly emanates an aura of fine and comfortable tropical living. From the moment you arrive at the home you are awed by its grandeur and presence. An inviting cool blue swimming pool and jacuzzi form the centerpiece of the estate, surrounded by the impressive main house and two elegant guest cottages that collectively form an architecturally delightful yet truly casual impression!
The main residence accommodates a total of 5 bedrooms, including two complete master suites, all of which are on the upper level of the house and can share the cool and comfortable upper veranda overlooking the pool and guest cottages. Each master suite also has its own private covered veranda on the ocean-facing side of the house, with fabulous views of the Abaco Club golf course and Atlantic Ocean.
At each end of the main residence are the stairwells, at the very top of which are two turret viewing towers that have absolutely stunning vistas of the ocean, golf course, beautiful Winding Bay and the marls to the west. The ground floor of the main residence has a bright and spacious modern kitchen with views out over the pool deck, leading off to an elegant dining area and also out to the great room, where open fireplaces and high ceilings warm and invite. Sweeping views out over the golf course and ocean fill the room, and there is a spacious and comfortable covered veranda adjoining the great room via elegant french doors on the ocean side and also out onto the pool deck area. Opulent furnishings abound throughout, particularly in the truly impressive main entrance foyer, off of which is a bright and fully-equipped office and library.
Downstairs in the basement level are a fully equipped bar, pool room and entertainment area, as well as various utility rooms, laundry, storage closets, and a 3-golf cart garage.
All the systems in the entire home — temperature, audio, alarms, cameras, and more — can be controlled remotely via the Internet. An automatic 100kw generator can power the entire home in the event of power supply interruptions.
No expense was spared in the construction of the home, which is structurally engineered to withstand the highest hurricane force winds, and with all-hurricane strength windows throughout the entire estate. A gorgeous copper roof and delightful glass turrets caps off this truly remarkable estate home.
