When it comes to investing in a vacation home, savvy investors and high-net-worth individuals are typically looking for three things: location, privacy and amenities.
“A great location with proximity to amenities and activities is particularly important in a high-end vacation home,” said Nick Damianos, of Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty. “Time is at a premium for the ultra-wealthy, so ease of access to their favourite pastimes, such as golfing, diving and boating, is extremely important. This group of individuals doesn’t have time to waste driving back and forth to the golf course. In the luxury market, it’s imperative to have everything close at hand.”
Which is why Paraiso, a 10,550-sq.-ft. waterfront estate exclusively listed by Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty, is such an attractive offering. With 6 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms, the home’s beachfront location in Paradise Island’s famed Ocean Club Estates makes it an ideal family retreat.
“The house is well-designed, immaculately maintained and located on a beautiful private beach,” Damianos said. “But, Paraiso is not simply a beautiful home – it’s an incomparable lifestyle. The owners can walk out of their front door and step onto a championship golf course or walk out their back door and step onto a pristine white sand beach. Ocean Club Estates also has its own tennis courts, playgrounds, restaurants and marina; everything is right at your fingertips.”
Additionally, ownership at Ocean Club Estates grants residents full access to the five-star amenities found at the adjacent Four Seasons Ocean Club Resort as well as the world-famous Atlantis Resort & Casino. “The Atlantis amenities are particularly attractive to families with young children,” Damianos said. "The property’s 140-acre waterpark with endless pools, slides, lagoons and aquariums is enough to keep kids entertained for weeks on end, and it’s all within walking distance.” Also within walking distance from Paraiso are five-star restaurants by renowned chefs such as Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Jose Andres and Nobu Matsuhisa, and high-end boutiques such as Gucci, Ferragamo and Tory Burch.
“Paradise Island offers the best of both worlds: city living in a relaxed, tropical atmosphere,” said Damianos. “It’s sophisticated enough for adults but extremely family-friendly.” This combination of chic urban living on some of the world’s most breathtaking beachfront has long attracted celebrities and business moguls to Paradise Island’s most luxurious gated communities, with Ocean Club Estates at the top of that prestigious list. “The private, serene residential atmosphere of Ocean Club Estates along with its proximity to world-class activities and amenities is a combination that’s nearly impossible to find anywhere else in The Bahamas,” said Damianos.
The Sotheby’s International Realty network currently has approximately 22,000 affiliated independent sales associates located in over 950 offices in 69 countries and territories worldwide. Each office is independently owned and operated.
