The kitchen is nice but it will take a little work to make it great. It's got a very nice white tile counter in the kitchen but it's screaming "I want granite!!!"
Part of the kitchen counter comes out in an L-shape with two bar stools so my guests can chat with me while I cook. Double sink, dish washer, electric oven and gas cook top. (Somebody tell me if I can get a gourmet quality cook top to drop in, I'm game to go into the steep prices to get something fantastic!) Refrigerator spot is sized for double door refrigerator.
My kitchen looks out over the family room, the dining room is diagonal (both FR and DR at back of the house, MBR upstairs at back). Vaulted ceilings, it's a great house and a very large yard (for my dog), at least large in LA County terms. Beautiful community with all my favorite restaurants and stores, all within several minutes drive. (Okay Trader Joe's is 4-5 miles away.) Everything considered it's the best house I could ever get and its the best house I'll ever have, and probably my last house too. I expect to live there for the next 20-25 years or however long I'm granted on this planet.
I should be well on my way to rejoining the cooking community in late June.
