We have chosen a house.

We have managed to arrive in Baku at exactly the right time (totally by coincidence) as 15 brand new houses have just been completed and ready for occupancy. Some have already been allocated but we still got a choice between the remaining.



There are 4 different styles of houses to chose from, all with the same floor size but with slightly different layouts and house colour.  We picked a house with layout E, as we preferred the separate rooms downstairs and that the balcony is from the upstair’s landing so everyone can access it.


It is right at the end of the cul-de-sac, just behind where I took the picture of the street above. Which means that the garden is slightly squint and narrow in places, but we do get trees (I am envisioning a hammock gently swinging and maybe some Swallows and Amazon style tents slung between them). For the next year the access to the street is down a passage way right next door but then it will move to the other end so we will be away from the traffic. Plus it is really, really close to school – cross the road behind and they are there – no more long commutes for us in the mornings.

The inside isn’t fully finished, so we don’t have a moving date yet but have been told it will be soon, but it is looking really good.
