With Bermuda being such a strong international community, many of our Bermuda buyers and sellers have real estate needs all over the globe, but with particular emphasis in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. At our recent global networking conference in Miami, the commitment to this excellence was revealed in the robust body of evidence of successful global referral transactions within our Sotheby’s International Realty network. It shows that our customers are receiving (and can continue to expect) first class market knowledge and service around the globe. A recent customer of mine here had been trying to sell a condo in Boston for the longest time. When I introduced her to my SIR colleague from our Boston affiliate, a buyer was found Commercial Space For Sale within a few days. Another Bermuda seller of mine was recently referred to our London Sotheby’s International Realty associates and they’ve rolled out the red carpet for her! Allow me the privilege to be of service to you both here and around the globe…the process is easy. You provide me with the location and description of the property you would either sell or buy and I make the personal connection for you on the other end. I can even stay in touch with your agent and be a sounding board for you on this end if needed. Allowing me to personally refer to you to colleagues around the globe allows me the privilege of making sure you are being taken care of in the manner to which you’ve become accustomed. At Rego Sotheby’s International Realty, I’m not only your realtors for life; I’m your realtor for the world. Now you have a way to take me with you.

n the 19th and 20th century, the North Family was one of Bermuda’s more prominent landowners with several estates, one of which ran from Harrington Sound to the South Shore (including the current site of the Pink Beach Club & Hotel). The family made substantial gifts of property to the Bermuda National Trust. This included the private residence known as Mangroville, adjacent lands and a portion of Mangrove Lake, which form the H.T. North Nature Reserve. Today, the remaining holdings of the North Estate include a magnificent total of 17.8 acres in three contiguous parcels, plus a waterfront home on Harrington Sound. This is one of Bermuda’s largest remaining tracks of undeveloped land under private ownership and its importance has never been more evident.

This parcel directly adjoins lands owned by Bermuda Properties (Tucker’s Point Club), The Bermuda National Trust and private residences. Offered for $5.2 million net.

north Farm & Old Quarry 8.2 acres with permission in-principle for two dwellings. Extensive, elevated water views and twenty-foot rock cuts add spectacular interest to the landscape. Offered for $6.8 million gross.
