My wife and I have lived in our house for the last 40 years, it is a 3 bedroomed bungalow with a lovely garden in a suburb to the east of Johannesburg. Our kitchen is quite spacious and overlooks the back garden. We have a large lounge and an adjoining TV room with comfortable couches in both rooms. There is a garage, and a double carport with a swimming pool in the middle of our back garden. Our front rooms overlook a park, which is lined with maple trees on each side. We also have a PC with fibre Internet connection, and satellite TV with Netflix. The ensuite bathroom to our master bedroom has been designed for disabled access with a roll-in shower and accessible toilet. I also have a ceiling hoist that can lift me from bed onto my wheelchair.
