Tour Faith Hill and Tim McGraw's Bahamian Island Retreat
June 7, 2017
Faith and Tim don't just own a beach house, they own the whole island! A mere shack inhabited the 20-acre Bahama property, which Faith and Tim purchased several years ago back in 2003. The duo had no idea how much work it would entail to build their dreamy vacation home.
"We set out to build a house. We had no idea we had to build everything else," Hill told Architectural Digest in a recent feature. "We basically had to build a little town."
Hill and McGraw teamed up with architects Bobby McAlpine and Greg Tankersley of McAlpine, the same design firm that helped with their homes in Tennessee. They wanted to "feel connected to the outside," Hill explained to Architectural Digest, especially when it comes to the ocean breeze.
After laying down the property's infrastructure, construction workers got down to business to fulfill the designers' vision: something encapsulating the idea that "in paradise, you live in ways you can't live in civilization."
