Front of the Villa.
South side. View from in front of the entrance of bedroom 1 (see floorplan) into the garden (direction: west)
The pump house is situated next to the green entrance gate. In front of the green gate there is sufficient space to park a car. One could even build some sort of a wall to not see gate and vehicle from the veranda.
The spacious living room. You can open the large glass window to the veranda (direction: west)
Through the left window you see the well.
Bedroom 1 faces the garden and the veranda. There is a 180 cm wide sliding door, half of which can be left open in the night since a top quality moskito screen keeps off any insects.
Please note the skylight.
Bedroom 2 - facing south. Don't worry, this room isn't heated up by direct sunlight since the southern sun hits at a right angle and thus the window is shaded by the overhang of the roof.
Exposed ceilings all over the house allow for lots of air volume. It's never sticky of stuffy. The skylight provides a decent light during the day.
The clever floorplan makes perfect use of space and defines the ideal position of the beds in the house. Electric switches and plug points are positioned at the exact right spots for comfort.
Between hallway and bathroom there is an ante-room (left and right of the door) where you can fit a washing machine, dryer and some shelves.
This bathroom is shared by bedroom 2 and bedroom 3
Bedroom 3 has a 180 cm wide sliding door with a top quality stainless steel mosquito screen (as has bedroom 1). It comes with an attached bathroom. Thus bedroom 3 can be used as an independent unit - and even rented.
As in bedroom 1, bedroom 3 also has a concrete wardrobe.
This bathroom is attached to bedroom 1.
The kitchen is situated at the back of the house. The polished cement countertops are 60 cm deep and 120 cm apart - the ideal measurements for an efficient kitchen.
Please not the abundance of wall plugs and lighting (plus of course the skylight). In this kitchen one can truely work with comfort.
