After posting many photos of the places where I lived in London, it struck me that I should also show where I live now. There is only one residence to feature of course, so I have used more photos of the house. It is an unprepossessing brick-built detached bungalow, built in 1979. It was later extended at the back, in 1987.
As you can see, it has a separate garage, and enough space to park three cars inside the gates. The side view shows the front door alcove, and the climbing Hydrangea. The huge Oak tree visible behind the garage is in our back garden. It is estimated to be almost 280 years old.
The back view shows the kitchen extension, and the garden shed built onto the garage.
The garden is a manageable size, and enough for us.
It is not a ‘pretty’ house. Neither is it a country cottage, or a typical village property found in similar villages all over the UK. It is part of a small estate, mostly built in the 1980s. But at each end of the road there are few houses to be seen, and you are immediately in the countryside.
