Jacaranda is a stunningly beautiful old colonial house, built in 1840, which sits on 1.5 acres of land in the center of downtown Nassau, just above Rawson Square. It is an oasis of calm and tranquility in the middle of a bustling city. The gardens have a timeless quality and the house is enhanced by the beauty of the classical architecture of its time. It has now been restored to its former glory after being unoccupied for many years .
