Plaisance is one of the most attractive and fun properties on Harbour Island. Situated right on the beautiful bay, this charming gated house sits on 3.5 acres affording guests a great sense of privacy. Wonderfully designed, Plaisance is perfect for two since the master bedroom occupies the whole top floor, great for four with a guest room downstairs and spacious for eight with a two-bedroom cottage located near the front gates. Throughout Plaisance, the décor is very nice and the whole layout is visually appealing. This is a house loved by its owner and the attention paid to detail is everywhere.

Plaisance also has one of the most unique pools anywhere. Surrounding the house, like a moat, is a winding lagoon that flows under the dining room into a large free form pool. Located just off a loggia with sitting areas, the pool looks over the lush, pretty garden to the bay. At one end of the pool is a bridge over the lagoon that leads to another sitting area. From there steps go down the lawn to the adorable dock house, which has a sitting room, and the dock, which has stairs into the water. Plaisance really is a wonderful island retreat.
