French House Bedini

I once lived in a house like this for a few years in real life. It felt so nice to be there that I thought I would attempt to replicate the feeling for others within Second Life too.  You can certainly feel the Mediterranean sun on your skin when sitting out on the terrace.  Spend a few moments listening to the crickets whilst drinking red wine with your friends.

And yes, it really was a case of cross the yard to find the toilet!

It would be a great house to see installed on a hill next to the sea, surrounded by olive trees, mediterranean pines and cypresses.  When the weather was clear, I could see the Isle of Corsica. Such was life on the French Cote d’Azur.  What will you see from your terrace I wonder?

Description

Mediterranean house built of bright old stones and wood.  The main entrance is through a porch, leading to one large room in two parts, seperated by an arch.  There is a large fireplace in the rear section of the room.  Stairs lead up to a mezzanine floor with a window overlooking the yard. There is a door out from the main room into the yard.  The yard is surrounded by a stone wall and contains an outbuilding housing the toilet and basin.

The yard and front of the house include a range of flower pots, filled with foliage typical of the region.  A wooden bench with sit animations is placed on the front porch.

The house should be installed lowered into the ground so that the outside steps are placed correctly on the ground.  There is a secret room in the house, but I’ll leave you to discover that for yourself.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, Bedini was the name of the original French owner of the real life house.
