So here it is: our new home. After weeks of frustrating house hunting we found 5 Higinbotham. Househunting is not that much fun here. There are very few properties on the market, most of them in serious need of modernisation and lots and lots of people who are looking for a roof over their head. So if you find an acceptable property you have to fight for it!! Nevertheless we found the right house in the right place with just minor compromises (colour!!)

The front garden

We did not take the advice of our friends to publish these pictures in black and white so we strongly recommend you put on your sunglasses as these colours are rather bright! Under these colourful circumstances Mr and Mrs Bond decided to change their names to the more appropriate Barbie and Ken...

The kitchen/dining/living room

The guest room. If you should come and visit us orange is the colour you have to bare...

The family bathroom

The master bedroom is in need of an interior designer so no pictures of it just yet. The pictures we took from the family room are also not great so bare with us. Regarding our back garden: it looks a bit like a desert... Container plants it will be once more. We can only show you a few pictures from our regular garden visitors.

Ah yes, and there is the demolition gang... they are relentlessly trimming our pencil pines and leave a hell of a mess on our drive. But we still love them!
