As you approach the 24 hr manned gate house entrance of Kenmure Country Club, you are greeted by a soaring vista of the valley and the award winning golf course crowned by the stunning antebellum Kenmure Mansion on the hillside nestled next to a tranquil lake. You will receive a warm greeting by the gate staff and will be given the necessary items for your stay in our beautiful cottage. As you cross the golf course, you will turn and head up the mountain. As you ascend higher and higher, take note of the lush vegetation and the beautiful homes just hidden out of sight. You will cross through a special tunnel and at the top of the hill you will turn left onto Chancery Court home to our cottage.
The beautiful one story cottage features two large bedrooms, one on each side of the cottage. The large master bedroom with a king side bed features lovely Toile drapes with black out secondary drapes and a flat screen TV. As you enter the large master bath the Bermudian original prints set the mood for luxury. It features dual vanities, a Jacuzzi tub in a windowed, but private, alcove with lovely wooded views along with a separate shower. The second large bedroom has two twin beds with access to a hall full bath. The large great room has a comfortable queen size sleeper sofa which folds out into a platform bed. The open floor plan gives the cottage a feeling of openness with a vaulted ceiling in the expansive great room centered around a floor-to-ceiling flagstone fireplace and a large flat screen TV, DVD, and stereo system tucked away in the armoire. Beautiful French doors lead out onto a large deck with a wooded view – a perfect place for morning coffee or late afternoon cocktails. The deck has a large 3 burner gas grill and wrought aluminum chairs, side table, and chase lounge – all with cushions found in the outside deck storage bin. If you have an artist’s eye, please enjoy all the antique prints and tapestries from around the world
