The sunny patio in front leads into the front entry. Solid Oak french doors with bamboo patterned glass set the tone for the rest of the house.

The entry room has tall ceilings and great windows. The giant Chinese vase will be left with the house if desired. It is too tall to fit in a normal room.

The entry room is 10 x 20 with plenty of room for an office.

The next room in the house is right in the middle.

It opens up into the kitchen, living room and bedrooms. It measures 10 x 17 and contains a small coat closet.

As you walk into the living area, the front end can be used as a dining area, or can just be part of the very large living room.

The Living room has a fireplace with insert in the center and is set up as a home theatre at the far end. The living room measures 13.5 x 32.

The home theater requires a projector and sound system. Behind the curtain on the right is a complete set of built-in shelves for components. Wiring from the shelves to the projector mounting location is in place. If you do not want any or all of this, the screen and curtains can be removed.

A short hall connects the middle room with a bathroom and two bedrooms.

The smallest bedroom is 13 x 13.5 with a nice closet.

The bedroom includes a built-in desk and bookcases. A domed mural is on the ceiling.

This bedroom has another mural that extends across the ceiling and onto the walls. It was painted by the artist who painted the giant underwater mural at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

This room is 13.5 x 15 and includes a large built-in desk, dressers and bookcase. It also has a large closet with plenty of storage.

The main bathroom has a vaulted ceiling and skylight and an oversize claw foot tub.

The kitchen has plenty of counter and cabinet space. A new gas stove will be installed.

The arch in the back of the kitchen leads to the pantry, laundry room and third bedroom and bath.

The pantry is loaded with shelves and has enough space for an upright freezer.

The machines are NOT included in the rental. THe hookups are gas.

This bedroom is 12 x 17 and includes a closet, bathroom and outside door to the back yard.

This is the bathroom off the back bedroom.

Out the back door is a great patio area with barbecue and hot tub. As the hot tub is expensive to run and utilities are included, we can either leave it for you to use for an extra $40 per month rent or can drain it and disconnect it.

Another view of the back patio.

The back patio wraps around to the side yard. The door is the entry to the back bedroom.

Now starting at the beginning, here is the front entry way. This paved area has a deep pond with lots of goldfish.

Walking toward the left is your parking area. You have a wonderful range of plants around the yard.

Here is a view from the driveway of your parking area. It is a big open paved space surrounded by bamboo. The driveway is secured by an electric gate. You will be supplied with clickers for gaining access. Guests cannot visit unless you give them access.

Here is a view down your bamboo lined driveway. Although this location is surrounded by bamboo, you are not alone. A house and apartment share this driveway and location, but are well hidden. Your parking area and yards are of course your own.

Some of the great gardens along the driveway. You are located in a wonderful bamboo display garden and are free to enjoy the extensive 30 acre grounds. All the bamboo in the yard will be professionally maintained by nursery staff.
