This is a beautiful 3 bedroom designer property in the heart of Speightstown, it is walking distance to the shops, restaurants and beaches.
Eglantine is a 17th Century former merchant's house in the heart of bustling Speightstown. True to tradition, the shop would have been downstairs with the elegant living on the first floor. To this day, the gorgeous living/dining room upstairs has French doors and a balcony overlooking the bustling street below. There is a beautiful mural painted in this room depicting 'Olde Speightstown' by local artist, Hilary Armstrong. The master bedroom has a 6'6' very comfortable king size bed with a dressing room which has a single bed leading to the bathroom. In the dressing room, there is a door leading to stairs which take you directly into the private walled courtyard. The second bedroom has a 5' bed, again very comfortable, with an ensuite bathroom. The entire house is air conditioned and there is pretty wrought iron at the windows and an electric gate for added security which means you can leave the windows open to get the maximum breeze if you prefer not to use air conditioning. Downstairs there is a dining room as you enter the house with a TV living room beyond which leads to the kitchen. You can access the private walled garden from either the kitchen or the living room and there is a wooden gazebo where you can enjoy outside dining. The decoration is entirely sympathetic with a character property of this age and boasts beautiful wooden floors upstairs. This is truly a hidden gem. Satellite TV and internet are provided. There is a weekly maid service and baby sitting is available by arrangement. A welcome pack can be provided if requested and airport meet and greet service if required. Reservations for car hire, restaurants, golf, fishing etc. can be arranged. Use of the local gym and tennis, with or without coaching, are close by.
