Our New Place - Part 3

OK...Sorry to do this in bits, guys but it get very cold sitting down at one spot for too long in this house so here are pics of the bathroom... The bathroom was the first room we saw when we first viewed this place and we both fell in love with it... You will soon see why...

See how big the bathroom is??? hehe... it's bigger than the guestroom at our old place... If you take the tub away, you can fit in a double bed and still have space for a built-in wardrobe!!! I love the bathroom! On the left is the shower cubicle. The previous tenants told us that the bathroom used to be fully carpeted and they pushed the landlord to removed half of the carpet. I can see why some people would want to carpet the bathroom to keep the heat in but a carpeted bathroom is ridiculous! sigh! Look at the size of the window. the draft keeps coming in... but it also lets the light in which we love.

This is what we love! hehe... our clawed bath... hehe it's not very pretty to be honest but I find it amusing... hehe .. I suppose whoever bought this bath wanted something vintage but cheap to fit in with the period of the house I suppose. I love the fact that it's a standalone bath or whatever you call it instead of the modern built in baths. Gives it a nice vintage posh feel I think... hehe...and this bath is not suitable for tall people...haha...if I lie down in the bath, my toes cam just touch the other end of the bath! hehe

And this is our bedroom. There's another fireplace feature in the room, but again I'm not sure if it's a working one or not cos it also has a flue flap. And we forgot to ask the owner when he came to see us.
Isn't the window amazing? I love the big windows that let in a lot of light...and draft... but the front of the place is a listed building cos it was built in 1805 so the window can't be changed...and I suppose restoring it would cost a lot of money and is time consuming...It's one of those half and half that you push up to open it. Oh well, I suppose living in an old building has lots of ups and downs.. great features but costly to maintain... our electric bill will probably skyrocket due to trying to heat the place up...sigh...

I have taken a pic of the front of the place but I'm still waiting for hubby to email it to me... sigh...

Yup, you guys are going to freeze. Btw, I presume the sitting room is Rick's AOR. It looks neat. The kitchen looks messy though, yours?

Aids, the kitchen is not messy..it's cosy!

Peng, guest room pic on Rick's phone but I think I will have to use my phone cos I don't think he'll ever send them to me.

I love the bathroom. But have you thought of how to heat it up economically? The house looks huge when thinking of the heating. Maybe during winter you only certain parts, like the kitchen :P

The clawed bath looks quite nice actually. I wanted to get one standalone bath like yours but we didn't have the space in our bathroom

Bea said...

Ash, I suggested that we only keep the parts of the house we normally use heated but Rick said that would mean we have to close the door so the heat doesn't escape and he didn't like the idea...so we are going to wait till it gets really cold or the electric bill goes really high before we decide. or take a hot bath and get warm...haha... ya..standalone baths take up space!
