This classically styled, fully-enclosed home is nestled among 21,471 sq. ft. of lush green gardens offering 100 feet of canal frontage in the luxury boating community of Old Fort Bay. As you enter the property through an electric gate, a brick driveway lined with swaying palm trees leads to the entry of 16 Montagu which features 7,060 sq. ft. of living space enveloped in native fruit trees and a brilliant array of flowering plants. The tropical feel of the grounds is carried through into the interior of the home which was thoughtfully designed with large windows and double glazed French doors that welcome natural light into every room, and natural stone tile and hardwood flooring to capture the cool air. The spacious kitchen, which encompasses a breakfast nook and cozy family room, includes marble countertops and stainless-steel appliances, inclusive of a gas stove top range, double electric wall oven with built-in microwave, and built-in French door refrigerator that blends seamlessly into the kitchen’s custom-built cabinetry. A wine cooler and farm-style sink round out the room’s features.
One of the home’s architectural highlights are the sophisticated coffered ceilings in the soaring two storey formal living room with the top floor windows creating a visually brilliant effect on this inviting space. A formal dining room, two en-suite guest rooms and staff accommodations with kitchenette and a separate entrance are also found on the ground floor. Completing the downstairs level is the covered veranda and sun-soaked pool deck which are the ideal spaces for entertaining, lounging and enjoying the tranquil and private outdoor living area.
