This is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire one of the last large properties that is available on one of the Out Islands in Abaco. The Sumner Estate consists of two parcels of prime property that are being sold together as one continuous tract. The first property consist of 8.66 acres with 1,014.63 linear feet of water frontage on Inner White Sound.
The property offers good elevations and slightly slopes down to the waterfront. This parcel is situated across the street from Bight O Bay beach.
The Bight O Bay beach is protected and there is a small Island within easy swimming, kayaking, or sailing distance. There are also two small reefs right off shore for easy snorkeling or diving.
The second parcel consists of 55.932 acres with 1.548 acres reserved for road reservations. This makes the entire tract a very impressive 64.592 acres with water frontage on three different bodies of water. The property offers 1,227.52 linear feet on the Sea of Abaco, 1,086.84 linear feet on beautiful Pimlin Bay, and 2,759.18 linear feet on Inner White Sound. The combined water frontage totals over 6,088 linear feet. The majority of the property offers good water depth, protected anchorage and large areas that would be ideal for private, protected dockage. Pimlin Bay has a beautiful beach which is right off of the entrance into White Sound. The property offers amazing vegetation consisting of coconut trees, native mahogany, large buttonwood trees, and gum elemi trees; and good elevations - at some points 360 degree views of the Atlantic Ocean, New Plymouth Settlement, White Sound, and the Sea of Abaco. The “Sumner Estate” is within close proximity to historic New Plymouth Settlement.
Green Turtle Cay was settled in the 1770’s by American Colonists who were still loyal to Britain. The Islands name is due to the abundance of Green Turtles that the new settlers found upon their arrival. A walk through New Plymouth today is still reminiscent of its colourful past. The pastel clapboard homes with their extensive gingerbread details were fashioned from the homes that the original settlers had found along the New England Coast and some of the original homes still exist today. This 18th century village by the sea offers several museums such as the Albert Lowe museum which peeks into the past as well as the Alton Lowe Gallery which bears the name of the Island’s, if not the Bahamas’, most famous artist. There is also a sculpture garden and many different shops, restaurants, and various other businesses which can provide all of the amenities of home. Green Turtle Cay is a boaters paradise with several uninhabited Islands to explore, deserted beaches nearby, and various other Out Islands to enjoy.
This amazing property would be ideal as a private estate or mixed use development.
