An exclusive tropical hideaway at the northern tip of Eleuthera, Gun Point encompasses more than 80 acres including two full miles of coastline. In its present condition, it’s already perfect as a residence, or it has tremendous potential for development.

Gun Point received its unusual name from its original owner, Lord Beaverbrook, who as a reward from the British Crown for his assistance during World War II was given the opportunity to name any place he wished. He chose the name Gun Point and inhabited it for many years. Centuries earlier, Eleuthera was home to the first Loyalist Settlers in the Bahamas. The Eleutheran Adventurers, finding themselves shipwrecked in 1648 on the nearby reef known as the Devil's Backbone, made their home in Preacher's Cave just east of Gun Point. These are just a couple of the many marvelous points of historical interest in the area.

Today, Gun Point’s accommodations consist of a main owner’s house with four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, and 4,000 square feet of living space. There’s also a caretaker’s cottage, a dock, a boat ramp, gazebos, and a water catchment area with a 210,000-gallon rainwater tank and generators. The property’s potential for further development is vast, with 73 acres of undeveloped land that stretches from the main road, south along the waterfront and north along the bordering Spanish Wells Commonage Land. The property features exquisite sweeping white sand beaches to the north overlooking the ocean, with panoramic views and elevations up to 45 feet above sea level.

What’s more, Gun Point couldn’t be more easily accessible, sitting as it does directly across from Spanish Wells. Florida is conveniently just 200 miles away, with air access to Gun Point from North Eleuthera Airport and a water ferry from Nassau to Spanish Wells.
