Also known as the impeccable house, because this sweetie was pristine. But the location just could not be ignored. As much as we would love to (literally) live over the river and through the woods, up into the foothills, it would just sacrifice too much. But choosing to surround ourselves with the lovely French people does mean we gave up:
a driveway lined with lavender…
and the controversial pool.
The kitchen was compact but incredibly efficient and pretty much perfect.
From kitchen to dining area, with fireplace.
This living area actually had French doors on either side, so they could be thrown open and catch the prevailing breeze, or incorporate the pool space outside this door.
From this living room, head upstairs…
to the little loft lounge associated with what would have been Theo’s bedroom…
which overlooked the pool. There was a small bathroom up here, too.
The downstairs bathroom. It had a separate WC.
A downstairs bedroom. None of the bedrooms had built-in closets, or cupboards as they called them.
Yes, this is a true testament to our commitment to be a part of the new culture and people. Good-bye, Lavender House!
