Known for its distinctive pink sand beaches, Harbour Island is a small island 3.5 miles long by 0.5 miles wide. With less than 2,000 inhabitants, Harbour Island provides a great quiet getaway from some of the heavier tourism areas in the Caribbean.
Known as “Briland” by the local citizens, this island was once the capital of the Bahamas and in the 1900s was its second largest city to Nassau. English-Colonial style buildings and colorful, flower-lined streets are common sites in Harbour Island’s only town, Dunmore Town. This town was named after John Murray—4th Earl of Dunmore, a governor of the Bahamas from 1786 to 1798 who had a summer residence on the island.
Parrett was proud to provide window units for this vacation home that was designed by RTB Design Services of New York City. This residence is also available for vacation rental through www.vrbo.com. Parrett provided a total of (11) window unit assemblies for this residence. These windows featured Parrett’s “traditional profile” inswing casement design, with units consisting of French and single casements, along with fixed window units that matched the sightlines of the operating units.
Specifications consisted of all-wood sapele mahogany construction, factory painted by Parrett to the interior and exterior in a custom paint color. Simulated divided lite grilles with 7/8” bar width were chosen to match the desired aesthetics of the home, as were unlacquered brass singlepoint locking casement fasteners, stay bars, and flush bolts. Clear coated wooden screen frames with fiberglass mesh were also provided by Parrett. These windows will provide many years of reliable use and beauty!
