Written by

Set on a lushly landscaped lot offering 150 feet of canal frontage, Conchrest is a stately venetian-style home located in the exclusive boating community of Old Fort Bay. Comprised of three buildings totaling 8,914 sq. ft. situated on a spacious double lot, the property’s main house offers 5,806 sq. ft. of artfully designed space. The ground floor maximizes the flow of fresh air and natural light with a foyer that stretches from front to back, welcoming guests with a glimpse of Conchrest’s impeccably groomed garden. Each room on this floor features double-paned French doors leading out onto east and west facing verandas, each offering an additional 444 sq. ft of outdoor living space. The professional-grade kitchen offers every amenity inclusive of a 48-inch dual fuel Viking range & oven, mosaic tiling on walls and floors, built-in shelving, a ceramic farmhouse sink, a built-in Miele microwave oven and a large center island with an additional stainless-steel sink and storage for cutlery and cookware. Located just off the kitchen is a warm and inviting dining room with views over the east verandah and lawn. The western side of the ground floor features a formal living room and a striking blue library, both of which open out to the western veranda and swimming pool. The second level of the home features two ensuite bedrooms bookended by expansive sundecks offering views of Old Fort Bay waterways.
Overlooking the pool is a 1,554 sq. ft. one-bedroom / 1.5 bathroom guest cottage with its own kitchen, living room and office. Just across the courtyard on the property’s eastern side is a two-storey two-car garage that includes unfinished space on the top floor intended for building out an additional guest or staff apartment.
