Here are some new photos of the house taken this year. This fall we’ll be repainting the exterior of the house, and doing ongoing beautification work in the garden.
Looking from the front gate to the property across the street.
The front door. This front room is a screened-in patio, open to the breeze and the birdsong.
The front gate, and the house in the distance.
The driveway through the yard. It looks like a dirt path, but it is gravel underneath.
The kitchen. Lots of counter space!
The path to the laundry room behind the house. The house comes with a washer and dryer that were just purchased in 2012.
The master bedroom.
Paved path on the side of the yard. It goes past mango trees and eucalyptus trees.
The side of the yard, and the garden shed in the distance.
The sitting room. This room is always cool, even on hot days, because of the high ceilings and open windows.
The master bedroom gets a lot of morning light, and has a nice view of the mountains. Like all the bedrooms, it has a ceiling fan and lamp, and a split air conditioning unit. The room also includes a large screen TV and DVD player. This bedroom has its own bathroom.
Master bedroom. Behind the TV cabinet is where the internet and cable TV lines come in.
We bought this cool little table from a roadside workshop near Santa Clara beach, which is only 45 minutes away, by the way.
