The new Waterloo House residences are among the most luxurious and tech-savvy rental accomodations available in Bermuda today.
Their panoramic views over the city and the whole of Hamilton Harbour are magnificent.
But the ultra-luxury, designer interiors of the homes, which include Brazilian hardwood floors and heated bathroom floors, will leave you gasping.
Located in west Hamilton, the seven duplex penthouse apartments at Waterloo House, designed by Botelho Wood Architects, have just gone on the market for rent (not for sale) with Rego Sotheby’s International Realty.
We toured the 4,254 square-foot show home; a gorgeous three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath duplex apartment directly overlooking the harbour.
The fourth-floor home is offered at $20,000 a month rent and has 2,941 square feet of living space on two levels plus a 1,313 square foot terrace.
The home features deep Brazilian walnut hardwood flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows to make the most of the water views.
The apartment’s huge slate-slabbed terrace is accessed from “folding glass doors” by Solar Innovations that allow for indoor-outdoor living.
From the terrace you can look down at your own private marina berth to check on your motor boat or yacht.
And with one touch of a personally pre-progammed button, the shades will lower, your favourite show will come on your flatscreen, and soothing sounds will play in the master whirlpool tub.
Another button might dim the lights and turn on your favourite tunes (direct from your MP3 player) as you enter the home (the terrace is wired for audio as well). All this is possible via a Crestron control and automation system. The home has both cable and satellite TV and features recessed and track lighting systems.
High-end stainless appliances, including dishwasher and wine fridge come with the apartment.
The kitchen has white and metal cabinets and granite countertops. There is also a large walk in pantry.
An open-plan dining room and living room look out over the harbour.
The apartment also has a beautifully appointed laundry room with granite counters and built-in shelving. And each home has its own storage room conveniently located just outside in the hallway.
One of the two guest bedrooms is on the lower main level, and it has floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the waterfront. It has an ensuite spacious shower bathroom.
The other guest room with ensuite bath is upsatirs, along with the lavish master suite.
The master suite has a dressing area and large closets with built-in shelving and a bathroom with heated floors and towel bars, double vanities, separate shower and whirlrpool bath.
All of the apartments have access to a large private residents lounge with a gym, roofdeck terrace and outdoor grilling area.
The penthouse apartments are available for rent from October 1 ranging in price from $14,000 up to $20,000 a month, including maintenance and taxes, but excluding tenant electric. Long-term leases are available. They include one secured car parking space (underground) per apartment.
Boat berths are available for rent directly in front of Waterloo House and there is a building concierge and private residents’ elevator.
The complex is steps from the ferry, taxis, dining, groceries, shopping, banking and the Hamilton business district and re/insurance hub
