HOUSE DESCRIPTION - The house, while furnished with nice pieces, is also child friendly – our four children were raised on the beautiful oriental carpets. Decorations include art, antiques and collections from India, Japan, Tibet, South East Asia, Colombia, Brazil and Mexico, many of which were collected on our travels. The living and sleeping areas are set off by hardwood floors, accented by oriental rugs.
The remodeled kitchen features an open layout with granite countertops, a counter eating area which seats four, and French doors which access the outside patio and swimming pool. The brick poolside patio has a glass countertop table which seats 6, and is alongside our large swimming pool with attached spa, which is enclosed behind a child-proof fence. A café table, two swivel arm chair/rockers and ottoman provide for a pleasant place to read or have a cup of coffee in or out of the sun.
LIVING AREAS AND BACK PATIO - The large living room has two large sofas, a rocker and a wing back chair, from which to watch our 52' Samsung flat screen HDTV with digital cable recorder, DVD player and VCR, or enjoy the fireplace. Two sets of French doors access a lovely sunroom which our grandchildren use as a playroom. A large toy cabinet along one wall is filled with toys, a comfortable carpet and a small table with four child-sized chairs provides a great play area, and a rattan sofa gives adults a comfortable place from which to watch. The house is wired for Wi-Fi broadband internet. French doors at the back of the living room open to a covered patio with a large Colonial-style wood table from Colombia, which seats ten.
