A kitchen worth waiting for....

Like many people's homes our kitchen is the hub of the house! Having had two small kitchens before (1 in this place and also 1 in our last place) it is just beautiful to have a lovely big kitchen.  When all the family or a crowd is over we can gather around the bench and catch up.   

It's fabulous that it is only a short stroll out to the pool too.

The lady we bought the house from who was 101 had lived here all her married life I believe.   Our neighbours tell us she was a beautiful woman and as you can see in the second photograph she had very simple taste; cute at the same time with the retro tiles.

In the side courtyard I have two lime trees and some herbs growing.   Lovely little spot to have a coffee or a read.

Our new kitchen

Our original kitchen when we first moved in complete with cute vintage tiles.  

 When standing at the sink, we have a courtyard out to the left

 Like our ensuite, I managed to incorporate a couple of second-hand stain glass windows, I also have the big sister of the window above the door upstairs

 Doorway on the left is to the butler's pantry, which is still being finalised
