Villa with a view: Jimmy Spithill's Bermudian family retreat

With a private jetty and direct access to the Great Sound, Jimmy Spithill's Bermuda family home makes a great investment for those looking to put down more permanent roots...

Helmsman Jimmy Spithill’s family home, purchased in the run up to Oracle Team USA’s unsuccessful defence of the America’s Cup last summer, is back on the market as the Australian embarks on his next sailing adventure. Suitably for a house belonging to one of the sport’s most famous skippers, Coral Harbour has spectacular water views and good access, with a mooring and deep water dock with electricity.

“Coral Harbour offers superyacht owners a great combination of luxury and functionality,” says Penny MacIntyre, of Rego Sotheby’s International Realty. “And the ability to watch the sailing world from the doorstep, swimming pool or dock.”

Designed in a traditional Bermudian style, the residence is set in 4,000 square metres of beautifully landscaped gardens. The contemporary interior has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and generous staff quarters. The airy spaces are enhanced by bespoke cabinetry and stone finishes.

The layout has been designed for enjoying Bermuda’s temperate climate, with a large pool in front of the property, plus an entertainment room with a bar. It also features spacious verandas and terraces to make the most of its stunning ocean-side position. “The key living areas of the residence all enjoy the panoramic views of the island of Bermuda, from its beautiful in-harbour cityscape to the Great Sound,” adds MacIntyre.

Located on the sought-after Harbour Road, the property is adjacent to the Belmont Hills Golf Course. It is also just a 20 minute drive to the colourful capital city of Hamilton – home to the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, designer boutiques and a selection of restaurants and bars.

The lowdown

Coral Harbour is less than 2nm from Hamilton Princess Marina, which can accommodate yachts up to 150m. The island is famous for its Dark ‘N Stormy cocktails, made from spicy ginger beer and Gosling’s Black Seal dark rum – go to Docksiders or Flanagan’s in Hamilton for friendly bar tenders and heavy-handed pouring. Head to Marcus’ restaurant in the Hamilton Princess for modern art and excellent fried chicken or fish chowder bites.

Coral Harbour, 62 Harbour Road, Bermuda, is for sale with Rego Sotheby’s International Realty, asking $8.5 million.
