Southern Fancy is an enchanting historic island cottage nestled in the heart of the picturesque Hope Town Settlement on Elbow Cay, Abaco, The Bahamas. This timeless residence, originally constructed circa 1865, boasts a rich heritage spanning 158 years, a testament to its enduring charm and classic appeal. Restored and renovated in 1953, 1991, and most recently in 2021, Southern Fancy blends the character of its past with the conveniences of modern living, all set against the breathtaking backdrop of oceanfront splendour. The cottage is two-levels, totaling 1,182 square feet, and comprised of wood frame construction, wood siding, a solid concrete foundation, and three cisterns that can hold up to 17,000 gallons of water. The main floor of this island gem features a detached guest suite, complete with one bedroom and a full bathroom. Follow the breezeway to a spacious living area that provides an inviting atmosphere for relaxation, while the separate kitchen, admired by none other than Chef Jose Andres during his visit to Hope Town in 2019, is a testament to the home's innovative renovations over the years. Ascend to the second floor to discover a lovely bedroom and another full bathroom, offering privacy and comfort in equal measure. The property encompasses an expansive oceanfront lot spanning 11,863 square feet. Southern Fancy includes a neighbouring vacant 2,245 sq ft square foot lot, providing an opportunity for further expansion or a new project, as well as the invaluable addition of two highly sought-after dock slips in the protected Hope Town Harbour. For boating enthusiasts who have an appreciation for Bahamian architecture and history, this property is a must-see!
