Opening the front door of this Cape Cod style cottage you step into the shuttered hallway. The ground floor is decorated throughout in this calming blue with white accents. The flooring moves from these classic Victorian tiles to dramatic dark wood, warm bamboo and tropical sea grass.
In the airy lounge, doors open onto the wrap around deck and the soft leather sofas invite you to put your feet up and just relax. For a quiet evening in, a wide screen TV, cable and a DVD player give you numerous options.

To the rear of the cottage you find the open plan kitchen and dining room. The furnishings are dark wood with oriental touches and a decadent chandelier. Patio doors surround the space and lead you onto wrap round deck where a full security and beam system gives peace of mind.

The kitchen is fully fitted & kitted, so whether it’s a dinner party, take away or a snack you can make yourself at home. Forget the mess and washing up, just close the doors around the stove and let the dishwasher take care of the rest.
