Tim McGraw and Faith Hill listed their private island in the Bahamas recently. The couple is asking $35 million for the 20-acre escape known as Goat Cay, which is part of the Exumas archipelago.
The trade wind-sculpted island features palm tree-dotted beaches and a small inlet for swimming. The island’s main residence is nestled in a small palm forest, and positioned on a small hilltop overlooking two white sand beaches. The home’s architecture borrows from Mediterranean styles, incorporating an observation tower into the build.
Overall there’s an open feel to the main living area, with retractable doors creating a massive, indoor-outdoor space. But the architecture divides the home into eight separate sections. The five-bedroom house measures in at 6,517 sq. ft.
Inside the main home, a grassy courtyard is the center point, but the outdoor living areas attached to the home measure in at nearly 5,000 sq. ft. Details include tile floors, wood ceilings, and fireplaces for cooler nights. The master bedroom borrows from Caribbean plantation style, with a hipped ceiling and a retractable wall that opens to the palm-studded gradient and the water beyond. The suite’s soaking tub is placed on the patio outside.
Other features of the exterior living area: an arcade that ends with a cabana overlooking the pool, wood decking, guest accommodations, and a boardwalk-accessible three-section dock with a boat lift and a smaller cabana.
McGraw and Hill are both country music superstars. McGraw has sold more than 80 million records worldwide; Hill more than 40 million.
