Settling in to Stanton

It’s been a few weeks now since we moved and we’re getting slowly settled in to our new home; we had the whole house painted to colors chosen by our interior designer, and quite a lot of new furniture arrived – especially for the “great room”, our main living area. Here’s that room with the new Stressless chairs and the spectacular green glass topped Island Fusion Hermes Reef table, and also our kitchen since it’s all part of the same huge space!

Also in that area is Margaret’s work desk (and she’s planning to get a filing cabinet to match).

We have four bedrooms in our new home, down from six at Independence; our master bedroom now has it’s designed colors with the new bedding – and of course there’s my favorite and spectacular shower in the ensuite:

The second bedroom has it’s ensuite walk-in shower, while bedrooms three and four share another bathroom – all downstairs of course.

Also downstairs is a “flex room” where we will be installing a projection TV / sound system for watching movies. With the home basically designed on a single level, the attractive stairs lead only to my office – although that space is also huge so I’ve split part of it into another movie / music / seating area …

Outside is not much changed from when we moved in, although Dixie Pools have now completed the pool install. There’s more to do out there (maybe just better outdoor furniture) but finishing the interior comes first!


UPDATE: Robert asked for more pictures of the table:

  1. We have watched this with great interest. It looks really rather beautiful and hopefully, you will be there for many years.

    I have news of our happenings. We are moving a few miles down the coast to Arroyo de la Miel. It is about the same size as this house, but with lots of storage room and a wonderful view of the Benalmadena bay from the front. We are going next week 15/16th and spending a night in an apartment. Our three boys are going into a cattery; too much upheaval for the otherwise. Philip would absolutely not be impressed if he was here at that time. They all wonder what the heck we are doing, as we have packed most of the stuff ready.

    Love from us.
