Bigger Home Near Melbourne, Florida - - PAGE 1.
August 23, 2013: We signed the lease today on a new place to live near Melbourne, Florida. The house has 2,076 square feet of space inside. I took some photos outside and inside before heading back to the old place this evening. Here are some short descriptions with each photo.
This outside view is from the southeast corner of the property. The
doublewide driveway is long enough to park SIX cars. The landlord has his work
trailer parked near the garage door.
This is the view from the street looking straight at the front of the house
that faces south. The front door is hidden in this view with three windows and
decorative shutters at the living room. The three windows are protected by accordion
The view of the west side of the house reveals a Florida Room with glass
windows at the back of the house as an add-on when the house was originally built.
You can see more accordion shutters on the master bedroom windows between the two
bushes. The owner had the big oak trees trimmed to remove all large limbs that were
OVER the top of the house. That should help minimize damages in case of a direct hit
from a hurricane in this area on the East Coast of Florida. The entire street has a
canopy of these large oak trees that run for about a mile.
Inside the front door, the view to the left reveals the three windows seen in
the view from the street of the front of the house. Vertical blinds are used for
privacy and to keep out bright sun light. Beige carpet covers the floors.
The other view from inside the front door shows the family room adjacent to the
kitchen. The double closet doors to the left cover the pantry shelves. The
door on the right goes into the double garage with a laundry area and plenty of room for
work shop benches, etc.
I stood in the corner of the living room to take this photo looking toward one
side of the kitchen area and the "dining area" or card table location where the
lights are hanging low. Sliding glass doors here open to the Florida room which is
NOT air-conditioned. There are three sliding glass doors on the north side of the
Florida room that can open to provide outside air to that room with screens to keep out
flying insects. There is an abandoned golf course out there beyond the back yard.
There is plenty of space in the master bedroom. The windows face west and
sliding doors are to the right leading to the Florida Room. To the left are the
small walk-in closets and the bathroom area. This photo is taken from the door
adjacent to the dining area.
I had to hide the camera flash from the large mirror in the bath area.
One of the two walk-in closets is to the left just past the light switch. The
school house light from the ceiling fan in the bedroom behind me is reflected in the large
mirror also with the vertical blinds at the sliding doors to the Florida Room.
This full-sized bath tub has no shower since there is a separate shower to the
left with SIX shower heads that can be turned on as desired. That large mirror from
the previous photo is to my left as I take this photo looking west from the doorway to the
This is a look at the Florida Room where my camera did not flash since there
was light coming in from the outside. This view is looking west with the sliding
doors and screens on the right facing north.
The view looking from the west end of the Florida Room shows the kitchen area
windows and cabinets for serving guests. The sliding doors to the right open to the
dining area and living room on the front side of the house. The single open door on
the far wall opens to the family room between the kitchen and the bedrooms on the east
side of the house.
