"INGLEHOPE" is a delightful, fully restored country house overlooking the estuary and yacht club at Cygnet just a two minute walk from the village centre. The house was built in 1910 and was completely refurbished a few years ago. Pressed 10 feet high metal ceilings, a bay window, wooden floors, a large bathtub, and the wood burning fireplace have been retained and combined with the convenience of a modern, well equiped kitchen, laundry, two bathrooms and central heating. There are three bedrooms, two large living areas and everything you need apart from personal belongings.
The master suite has a king size bed, a large walk in robe and an ensuite with shower. French doors open to views of the estuary,garden, yacht club and nature reserve. The ensuite combines marble, timber and glass with the beauty of a leadlight window.
The second bedroom is smaller but also has a king size bed and French doors to the garden. Watch blue wrens frolic under silver birch trees and enjoy blossoms on the flowering plum outside your door.
There is a third bedroom with a double bed. This room is sunny and very comfortable if needed.
The kitchen overlooking the garden is beautifully appointed with marble bench tops, an electric oven with gas cook top, coffee machine (with locally roasted coffee) kettle, sandwich press dishwasher, microwave and a refrigerator / freezer
