This 1,000 acre gated Bahamas Real Estate community is the address to more than 300 large private estates including Orchid House. Orchid Estate is beachfront Bahamas Real Estate acreage comprised of 2.7 acres, with two residences, Orchid House & Little Orchid, located just a minute walk from the Lyford Cay Marina.

Flowing around a central courtyard, the four bedroom main residence, Orchid House, brings the outdoors inside from nearly all angles. The main house has 4 ensuite bathrooms and 3 additional half bathrooms plus a maid's quarters. Shellstone flooring covers the main living spaces and light bamboo flooring completes the bedrooms. The living room takes full advantage of the ocean views and opens out onto a covered patio. Designed with families in mind, you can observe the beach, pool and tennis court from the kitchen. Off the kitchen is a family room, perfect for a children's play area or casual TV room. The east wing of the house has a formal dining room with a staff kitchen and the library, paneled in old pine, brings character and variety to the home.
The two story second residence, Little Orchid, offers four bedrooms ensuite plus a half bathroom and a private pool, making it perfect for visiting guests or short term rentals.
Lyford Cay is exceptionally secure due to its 24 hour security patrol and gated access. Just outside of the Cay are all the amenities one could ask for including banking, attorney’s, a hospital, the Old Fort Bay Shopping Center and restaurants providing various cuisines. This is truly the best in Bahamas Real Estate.
