Joyfully Bermudian in spirit, and poised on the clear turquoise waters of Castle Harbour with a substantial dock and deepwater mooring opportunities, Lily Lodge is one of only 11 estate homes that comprise the elegant Shell Point enclave at the Rosewood Tucker's Point Club & Resort in exclusive Tucker's Town. World-class golf courses and beaches, restaurants, hotel, spa, and other amenities of Tucker's Point and the private Mid Ocean Club are within an easy walk or golf-cart ride. Inspired by the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts -- where family games of touch football were played at the seaside, yet within view of the house – a special feature at Lily Lodge are the expansive, flat waterfront lawns on the 0.80 acre site. Bermuda's rolling landscape and rocky shorelines make such lawns a rarity, and at Lily Lodge these are as ideal for children's play as they are for grand-scale entertaining. The house placement, grading and landscaping were designed to be child-friendly with maximum privacy and safety at the property's perimeter. In immaculate turn-key condition, the home itself was completed in 2010 and designed by the Bermuda architectural firm of Lindberg & Simmons working closely with the owner . This is a thoughtfully planned private family haven reflecting the best Bermudian architectural traditions combined with a distinct 21st century sensibility. With seven bedrooms suites all under one roof, Lily Lodge offers high ceilings, abundant natural light and pleasing room proportions framed by Australian cypress wood floors and spectacular Castle Harbour views from most rooms. One of the seven bedroom suites is practically positioned on the main level, while another is accessed by separate staircase and serves particularly well as nanny's accommodation or as a home office suite. The gracious double-storey verandahs characterise the waterside of Lily Lodge, offering a watchful lookout over lawn, sea, and sky. The generously-sized, heated swimming pool with a wide surrounding stone terrace includes the charming sunset patio, ideal for al fresco dining with a fire pit to illuminate the evening's entertainment of family and friends. Special care was taken with the gardens at Lily Lodge. Amongst the most beautiful in Bermuda, the property's appeal is enhanced by an array of interesting mature plantings including Bay Grape, Buttonwood, Calophylum, Canary Island Date Palms, Chinese Fan Palms, Coconut Palms, Miniature Palms, Sago Palms, Bermuda Easter Lilies, African Iris Birds of Paradise, Frangipani, Ginger, Guava, Hibiscus, Ice Plant, Mother In-law's Tongue, Natal Plum, Oleander, Olivewood, Dwarf Oleander, Rubber Tree, Variegated Schefflera and Sea Oxeye Daisy.
