Hyggelig (hoo-ga-lee) is a Danish word expressing an atmosphere of well-being, comfort, and togetherness: a grand coziness found right here in Marshallberg, NC!
Marshallberg is a peaceful little fishing village on Core Sound with a sense of place and permanence. Marshallberg streets are perfect for dog-walking and biking. Its shallow shores are ideal for clamming, birding, and kayaking. Cape Lookout, Harker's Island and Shackleford Banks are a short boat ride from the Marshallberg boat ramp.
Hyggelig is a 5 minute walk from the harbor, a waterfront park and a boat ramp. With spacious rooms, large windows and wooden floors, the home brings the outside in. Large windows facing the enclosed back porch make the living room feel even larger. The living room features large plank pine floors, a tuned piano, sitting area, game table, and a wood stove.
The kitchen and dining room overlook azaleas and large pines in the front yard. The main bedroom is a suite, sleeping 2 to 6. It has two sleeping areas, a walk-in closet, a large bathroom with garden tub and shower, and access to a large deck shaded by wisteria.
The second bedroom sleeps two and has a full bath and access to the backyard through a sweet little stoop. The fenced backyard is your own private park shaded by pecan, maple,and fig trees.
