Endymion is a home speci fi cally designed to entertain or casually enjoy the Sir FrancesDrake’s Channel’s yachting activity, cool breezes and multi-island chain views. The name itself means “ a thing of beauty and a joy to behold forever” and the hexagonal rooms with large hurricane glass windows and sliding glass doors display such throughout the seasons, offering awe-inspiring nature at its best from sunrise to sunset.
The passing ships of all types, shapes and sizes, the occasional plane landing at theTerrence B Lettsome Airport on nearby Beef Island and the entertaining boat docking activity at Hodges Creek Marina keep “porch-time“ captivating and enjoyable.
Within the 4 hexagonal pod structures of the main house are 3 comfortable bedrooms with en-suite baths. Above and near the parking is an independent guest house perfect for visitors or income producing long-term or Airbnb short-term rentals. The current owners hired one of the island’s best fi nish-carpenters to put in their kitchens so everything is ef fi ciently stored and hidden from view behind well thought out custom-designed hardwood doors and off-white countertops.
Hilltop parking for 8 cars with plenty of turnaround space are a de fi nite bonus when entertaining at this glorious location. Occupants can sit for hours from any of the numerous balconies while watching the ever-changing clouds, rainbows, stars, moonrise, sunset colors and/or the cruising yachts continually passing by.
The original home was designed by Michael Helm for a former TV producer and renovated after Irma to meet the current stricter hurricane codes in 2018/19. The current owners are motivated to sell for estate planning purposes, but are enjoying every moment they can before departing.
